The Krupp-Steyr Waffentrager is well suited for support roles with its accurate, high penetrating gun with effective medium-to-long-range support.
Its high base concealment and low profile let it stay unspotted from otherwise not-so-ideal supporting positions. This is helpful since it lacks the armor and HP to survive attacks for very long.
More of a hindrance is poor acceleration and low top speed, which makes quick repositioning difficult. However, reading the flow of the battle and preemptively repositioning can help.
Focus on boosting its strengths -- gun and concealment -- as these can be significantly improved compared to marginal improvements on its weaker aspects.
|A Gun Rammer and Gun Laying Drive improve the effectiveness of the gun. I also recommend a Camouflage Net to complement the already high base concealment. The 360-degree turret removes the need to rotate the hull for target acquisition.|
|105-octane Gasoline may be tempting to counteract the subpar power-to-weight ratio, but the additional 10% is almost nothing, both on paper and in practice. Instead, I recommend the standard Repair Kit, First Aid Kit, and Fire Extinguisher trio.|
|Crew Skills & Perks|
|"Snap Shot" and "Smooth Ride" help improve gun handling, "Concealment" will significantly boost the already high concealment, and "Sixth Sense" is very helpful in letting you know when you need to find some solid cover.|
