No, this thread won't be about VK whining or anything. Instead, I propose a small game: try to pick a fictional tank (from a game, novel, film, whatsoever) and convert it to WoT machine! :)

My proposition: Apocalypse Tank from Red Alert 2:
Spoiler                     

Proposed stats (tier X):
HP: 2650
Mass: 82 t
Top Speed: 19 km/h
Hull Traverse: 23 d/s
Turret Traverse: 18 d/s
Hull Armour: 189/120/92 mm
Turret Armour: 220/135/90 mm
Armament: Dual 122 mm BL-9 (215/250/68 Penetration, 440/440/530 Damage)
RoF: 7,08 (DPM: 3115/3752)
Horse Power: 1200
Crew: 6 (commander, driver+radiooperator, 2*gunner, 2*loader)

Keeping this tank along RA2 convention, it should be very slow and sluggish - but capable of punishing everything in front of its barrels with ease. The RoF is crazy, I admit - but I wanted to take into account the dual guns this machine mounts. In exchange, I'd make it awfully sluggish and thus suceptible to flanking. Not to mention even after the last patch, arty would simply love such target practice.

Not that I don't like the idea, but the tank would still seem too strong. Dual guns have not been implied yet and will not be soon. World of tanks is more or less only about real and blueprinted tanks.

HP: 5000
Hull armor: 400/300/100mm
Turret armor: 300/200/200mm
Top speed: 8kmh
Weight: 300 tons
Power: 2 engines each producing 1,5k Horse powers
Cannon: 203mm cannon
RoF: 0,9, DMG: 3500.

Crew (11): Commander, Gunner, Gunner, Loader, Loader, Loader, Loader, Radioman, Radioman, Driver, Driver (For turret).

Info: Have fun getting any where. Your slow speed will not get you far. And don't even try to Snap shooting. Your reload time is just as slow as any arty ingame. But your advantages is The Alpfa, Armor and a Massive HP pool. So use this ekstremly defencive and keep those one shot's rolling

I realise fictional tanks are often designed according to the Rule of Awesome, but I think it may be a fun experiment to try to curb them to WoT convention. For the Apocalypse, I tried to think of a way to nerf Apocalypse to being a regular tier X - thus the sluggish speed and agility. I was also thinking about including several weakspots - for example, between the barrels. Take note that the gun is a nerfed version of the one installed on IS-3 - but indeed, the penetration nerf may be too small to compensate for the increased RoF.
