Supertest Tier IX Panhard EBR 90

12

Similar to its elder brother in many ways, this armored is equipped with a more powerful main weapon – the 90mm cannon. This Panhard has all the same mechanics specific for its type and is played like all active sighting scouts: relying on agility and speed.

The official spiel.

What kind of vehicle is that?

Eight wheels, two driving modes, ‘magnet’ lock-on, the charge mechanic, and other distinct features are in place (and enhanced). The vehicle is extremely vulnerable for enemy fire, with a small HP pool and almost non-existent armor, so rely on its mobility and small size to survive. It counts as a light tank but the spotting distance is much shorter than those of tracked ones. The firepower is enough to finish off a damaged enemy at the end of a battle but not for an even-sided one-on-one engagement. The Panhard’s ace in the sleeve is its mobility. A 105-mm cannon has outstanding stabilization allowing to fire on the move but its reloading speed is to underline that damage dealing isn’t armored cars’ main specialty.
