It's the moment we've all been waiting for. The Hotchkiss thread.



HOTCHKISS






This game needs a Hotchkiss commander. For those of you who don't know or didn't play vCoH, the Hotchkiss was a light tank the Panzer Elite had, and it was the worst best unit in the game. It was basically a late, expensive, slow firing, greyhound that you could up gun for munitions to double the fire rate, damage, and penetration. You could also upgrade it to have 4 stuka rockets on it to barrage, but that's probably not a good thing to bring back. Basically the thing was a piece of crap ai tank in a faction not needing ai tanks. Obviously if they will add the tank they will balance it better this time.

However, I think this tank could fit very well in the Ostheer faction, who have no light tank at all. This was a really fun unit in vCoH, I think it should be brought over in a new commander. What are your thoughts?

It's... beautiful. Maybe they will add AP rounds to the commander so this can be a reality too.

A Panzer III would be more thematically appropriate for Ostheer. CoH2 has been sorely lacking a Panzer III since it came out. How did they try to portray the early Wehrmacht without their workhorse of a tank? It's not too late: Vote Panzer III for Wehrmacht Light Armour!

Only thing would be to make it a stock unit, not barred behind another paywall like US.

Biased poll vote choices, almost forcing people to vote yes by default. Would not vote.

Hotchkiss was a horrible idea in vCOH and it would be an even worse idea for COH2. You had to trade a good anti-inf tank for this pile of trash which couldn't hit anything. The rocket upgrade was also trash... the whole unit was worthless.

You don't think it would be better now that you don't have to trade a core unit for it and that Ost has no light tank, and it might actually fill a role?
