The Wiesel 1 HOT is a tier 7 Tank Destroyer originating from Germany, and is sold by Sophie Wölfli. It can be unlocked from the FV510 Warrior MILAN as a side branch of the main Fire Support Vehicle tree.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • High spot and rof: has high spotting ranges and rate of fire.
  • Missile weapons only.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Featuring excellent mobility and potent ATGM launchers, the Wiesel 1 HOT is an ATGM-only vehicle which functions well as a long range sniper and flanker. With excellent camouflage, a good view range, and effectively no limit to 'gun' depression, the Wiesel 1 HOT is tailor made for long range ridge-poking, and sniping, relying on its camo rating and mobility to compensate for non-existent armor. Able to use the tiniest bit of cover to hide completely.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Excellent camouflage rating
  • Very, very agile
  • Good spotting capabilities
  • Very good mobility
  • Very good gun depression
  • Devastating two shot ATGM salvo
  • Tiny silhouette - very illusive target

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Non-existent armor, superior only to the Kornet's
  • Only fires ATGMs
  • Extremely low HP pool - can be single-shot easily
  • Very low weight - can be smashed to pieces by even low-speed ramming. A full speed ram can send it flying over the battlefield. The wreck can be moved at ease and used as cover.

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

With a reliance on firepower and mobility, upgrading to the HOT-3T ATGM, Improved Stowage, and D622D Tracks should be an early priority to capitalize on the strengths of the vehicle.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Augmented Optics
  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Improved Pioneer Tool Kit

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Sabrina Washington, to improve the camo rating, view range, and crew stats
  • Driver: Spin to Win, Off-Road Driving
  • Gunner: Sharpshooter, Do the Twist
  • Loader: Rapid Fire, Explosive Shells/Preparation
