The Panzer II is the common name used for a family of German tanks used in World War II. The official German designation was Panzerkampfwagen II (abbreviated PzKpfw II). It was mounted with a 20 mm KwK 30 L/55 gun, which was an auto-reloading cannon. The Panzer II was supplemented by the Panzer III and Panzer IV by 1940/1941. Thereafter, it was used to great effect as a reconnaissance tank. By the end of 1942, it had been largely removed from frontline service and it was used for training and on secondary fronts. Production of the tank itself ceased by 1943, but its chassis remained in use as the basis of several other armored vehicles, chiefly self-propelled artillery and tank destroyers such as the Wespe and Marder II (not to be confused with the Marder 1 IFV).
The Panzer II cannot be bought and only could be earned/won through WW2 leagues and the occasional forum contest. The Pz II can be fought in offline mode by using a tank near its level. For users who have the Pz II it is the worst performing vehicle of all other WW2 league vehicles, the Pz II is extremely obsolete in both armor and firepower and it is best for users to only use the vehicle for show instead of actual combat.
