■ Tank Actions
The tank actions of Girls und Panzer: Dream Tank Match are a reproduction of the actions that appear in the original work. Each tank’s performance differs and operability is simple-yet-deep, allowing anyone to partake n Girls und Panzer-esque tank battles.
Since each tank’s performance differs, there are some low mobility heavy tanks that are unable to drift.
High mobility tanks such as the BT-42 can jump over fields with rough surfaces while driving.
The CV33 Turn can be done by some tanks, such as the Sturmgeschutz III Ausf. F and Hetzer. It is extremely effective for narrow alleyways or when pursuing an enemy tank. While drifting, tilt the left stick opposite the direction your moving to activate the turn.
By using the rotating turret equipped to most tanks, you can fire outside the direction of movement. Since tanks such as Hetzer have a disadvantage in town areas due to their fixed turret, it is better to choose a tank with a rotating turret in those situations.
Depending on the tank (Centurion, Tiger, etc.), you can perform a fast-rotating spin turn.
Girls und Panzer: Dream Tank Match is due out for PlayStation 4 on February 22, 2018 in Japan, and with English subtitles on February 27 in Southeast Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, and Indonesia).
