Hope is the best way to be disappointed. If you don't expect anaything you rarely will have good surprise (they made a mistake XD) and most of the time it's like the good ol'time  :mellow:

1. Front hull - 150-180mm, side hull 100-120 mm, rear hull - 80mm. Rather close to KT, here we are using Doyle as a reference. 1000 HP engine with supercharging. Turrets - 1) Henschel (Pz.Kpfw.VI Ausf. top one) 2) Standard turret planned for E75 according to the schemes.

2. Going to choose from:
E50 - 8,8cm KwK 43 L/71, 7,5cm KwK 45 L/100, 8,8cm KwK L/100.
E75 - 8,8cm KwK 43 L/71, 10,5cm KwK 45 L/52, 10,5cm KwK 46 L/68, 10,5cm KwK 46 L/68, 12,8cm KwK 44 L/55.

10,5cm L/68 is listed twice, perhaps you meant 10,5cm L/52 aufs B?


This gun is possible as well.

So the new Tier 9 medium (E-50 as Panther II moves to 8) won't have access to the 10,5 Ausf. B anymore?

If the 8,8/l100 trades 390 damage for 220 damage along with 240+mm penetration, I can live with that.

Naaaah they will not, they choose the better armor value on the T-54 with the 120mm front hull so why not do the same with the E-100 lower front plate? /sarcasm
They could have easily giving the KV-4 a 180mm armor design, but they took one of the lowest

Stop being trolls

The Löwe ain't too bad as far as we know.

and well it coulda been worse with E-100 line.

+ we now actually get the TD version of that tank but my only complaint is why the **** did they name it the StuG E-100, it doesen't even look remotely similar to it.

Jagdpanther III or Jagdtiger II would be okay but Stug.

E-50 was the line of medium and heavy tanks and proparbly a middle of the two classes.
so i support it being there, if it got the good traits from bothe Heavies and Mediums.

The M10 Panther was used in small numbers during The Bulge, but they were quickly spotted and destroyed. Also its going to be a premium tank according to the tech trees.

The Hornisse/Nashorn was used quite extensively on the eastern front, and is planned as a Tier 6 in the new upcoming panzerjager branch.

The E-100 will probably be armed with the Krupp and Maus turret.


Nice pictures :P

To be fair, the idea was sound, but they were not particularly well placed.

Still, if it's going to be a premium tank, I might be interested in getting it (depending on the price). Where is it mentioned on the tech-tree though?

Yeah, what's that all about? It's a German tank, with a German crew, disguised as an American tank.

Surely WG don't actually believe it's a U.S version of the Panther... or do they?  :blink:

If I don't have a Panther by then, I might buy it, but given the stock Panther's poor performance it might not be worth it.

it was not to be belived, it actually was the E-100 chassis just check the front plate and that of the E-100 drawings and the number of roadwheels
