I think WG overlooks so much potential and I therefore present a possible redesign for these two lines. The idea is to create two lines, which each have their specialities. Both lines start from the Marder II (tier III), where one of them are (for the most part) mostly open topped, mobile but relatively lightly armed vehicles which have excellent firepower. The second line are (for the most part) more sluggish, relatively heavily armored vehicles with good firepower.
Now for the basic research tree:
There are things you will notice immediately:
*Jagdtiger dropped from Tier IX to tier VIII
*Ferdinand is only available from the Tiger P
*Jagdpanzer E-100 and StuG E-100
Do not freak out, there is a reason for everything and this concept isn't claimed final !
Now for the details of the new and edited vehicles:
Marder III Ausf. H (Tier IV)
Marder III Ausf. M (Tier V)
Nashorn (Tier VI)
Sturer Emil (Tier VII)
Jagdpanther II (Tier VIII)
Jagdtiger (Tier VIII)
Jagdpanzer E-50 (Tier IX)
Jagdpanzer E-75 (Tier IX)
StuG E-100 (Tier X)
Jagdpanzer E-100 (Tier X)
And the details about the respective guns that are new. (I chose to not yet calculate DPM and gun statistics for all the tree, just for these guns. But in the case of the 12,8 cm PaK 44 L/61 on the Jagdpanzer E-50, it will be exactly like how it is on the Jagdtiger right now):
7,5 cm PaK 40/3
7,5 cm PaK 40 L/70
8,8 cm PaK 43/1 L/71
10,5 cm K 19 L/52
12,8 cm K 40 L/61
15 cm PaK 44 L/53
15 cm PaK 46 L/63
Tell me what you think (what is good/bad, what should be changed?). Oh, and I'm not claiming this is thé way to go, don't bash me with things like 'not going to happen', it doesn't add anything, and making such concepts is fun to do in general..
