Weak Spot Guide: PzKpfw 38 (t)

The tier 3 light tank PzKpfw 38 (t)  in World of Tanks might not have the greatest armor all around for tier 3 but it does have a few spots that can prove to be difficult.  This guide will be more simplistic than the higher tiered guides to keep it easy to understand for newer players.  Green are the easiest locations to damage, followed by yellow/orange, and then red is the hardest locations to damage. Purple means there is no hit box(shells pass through) or for other areas there is no chance of doing HP damage by shooting there.

Keep in mind that some area might be labeled as being thinner than other areas while still being listed as “red” or hard to penetrate. This is due to the angle of some pieces and also the location of these pieces either very high on the tank or very low. Use your best judgement when referencing this guide while playing against a PzKpfw 38 (t).

  1. I would like to request a weak spot guide for the IS-6.

    • A few have requested it. It’s semi complete but wont be done for a week or two due to my schedule.

      • plz do one to the uk matilda since it has so much armor and i dont know where to hit

        • Here Bro try this…

          Matilda: Historical values:
          Turret……….Front………………………………….Sides…………………………………Rear
          ……………….75mm at 10degrees………75mm at 21 degrees………75mm at 0 degrees
          Hull…………..75mm………………………………..70mm………………………………55mm
          ………………………………(and spaced armour armoured side skirts 25mm thick)

          Matilda: Game values: http://worldoftanks….k/gb07_matilda/
          Turret………..Front…………………………………..Sides………………………………..Rear
          ……………….75mm at 10degrees………75mm at 21 degrees………75mm at 0 degrees
          Hull………….75mm……………………………..55mm………………………………….55mm
          ………………………………(and spaced armour armoured side skirts 25mm thick)

    Any chance of doing armor tests for the mid tier british heavies?

    namely: CH VII, BP and the Caern.

    would be nice
    thank you and keep up the good work

    (also I dont see much benefit of displaying the armor thickness but not telling the angles. This way the information given is nigh useless..)

    • Im getting to them, I am just on a small break due to other reasons.

      As far as just displaying the thickness/colors… I am only going to be doing this from tier 1-tier 4 since most new players were confused with the angles/armor values of the other guides I have been putting up. I took that feedback and make them easier to understand at lower tiers, and even though the armor thickness is only shown I take base the red/yellow/green off of the actual armor values/angled/thickness combined.

  3. IMHO you should display Effective AP Armor number, next to nominal armor value. I know it’s some calculating, but so much more useful 😉 Just like you did Foch, even less data, just 15mm (25 mm AP).

    • … the reason why is, that now you have some serious bugs on this picture. 25mm turret areas are in red (and it rarely bounces my 76mm L-10U), while an almost – horizontal 15mm plate almost always bounces my shots 😉

      • That would be to much information for new players. I’ve already tested out different options and this worked best for them. Also the colors are based on the armor values for that specific tank so while an area might be red it can still be damaged. The red simply means that it is the most difficult place to penetrate on that specific tank.

  4. Can I request you do an armor value readout to the PzS35?

  5. All tanks have weaknest just always Hit them on sides or directly hit them on the rear.
