Heroes & Generals Wiki


The Panzerkampfwagen II is a fast and maneuverable German light tank. It is armed with a fast-firing 20mm cannon which is extremely effective against infantry and lightly armored vehicles.

  • The Panzer II can easily shred infantry and infantry vehicles with its 20mm autocannon.
  • Do not engage any tank at long range with the Panzer II: the accuracy is fairly disappointing and most of your shots will be ineffective. Try to keep the engagement distance as little as possible.
  • The Panzer II has a slower rate of fire than the Luchs thus is more controllable in bursts, allowing it to have a somewhat longer effective range.
  • Try to flank enemies and hit their weakspots to maximize the 20mm autocannon's damage potential.
  • Avoid head-on engagements, as the Panzer II lacks DPM and armor.
  • The AP round on the 20mm is very ineffective at engaging enemy armor, even to some degree at flanking. It is recommended to avoid engaging tanks until APCR is unlocked.
  • Panzer II's weakspots are all located on the right half of the tank. Hiding them from incoming fire's direction may increase your survivability rate.
