I never said that Hetzer is indestructible. I am just saying that Hetzer is not as vulnerable as you described it (check the pen. numbers I posted) and I am saying that all other tank destroyers/tank hunters of the same tier have either good mobility and weak armor or better armor but limited mobility, Hetzer has good armor and good mobility.
This is just a simple diagram I made but it ilustrates what I mean - hetzer has those 3 colums most even while the others have at least one significantly lower than others. This is what I mean by "it has no weakness" - it does not follow the pattern. It seems to me that Flank speed was given to Hetzer only to make the unit more different from its reward unit, JPIV, because without it the units are pretty much the same.
But now you said this

OK, so you want to keep the ability because it can secure kills - if opponent survives the shot and tries to retreat, you activate flank speed, catch up and destroy it. The M10s/M18s can do that but they are risking getting destroyed because if they chase target this way and they run into another untit, they either need to take the chance and risk getting killed (due to their weak armor), or they need to stop the chase. Hetzer has the armor so it can afford chase the unit with much less risk.
And yes, I said it is experimental change. If people in general were against it, then it would get removed but sofar you are against it, mofeta is for it, New BK Champion did not really say he's for it but from the post he made it seems he's not against it, Hawks supports it too. seha supports your side, maybe someone else I missed, too...it is simply not rejected by majority of comments here. If we were to revert every change that has at least some opposition, no change ever would stick around.

Well, it could be changed but it seems unlikely to me that someone would intentionally send planes only to get shot down (which is not guaranteed) and then prey to RNG that the plane actually hits a building (which is also not guaranteed). I mean it is surely possible to try such "tactics" but I doubt it would have major success.

This could be done...is anyone against it?
@drivebyhobo: The model was offered to us like this and we considered it a nice addtion. We are not returning the model to the creator to remake a gunner model to make it...I don't even know what you're getting at here...to make the model have more afroamerican facial features? There is no reason for it. The model works and reworking it for such a small detail is really pointless. It is supposed to represent black soldiers from the US tank battalions and it does that.
