We do know that the topic is old, but there is also a sense of the lack of accomplishment. Could it be that it was the Karl? So I just want to ask if it would be sensible for WG to put in the German mortar giant as an SPG? Any thoughts and ideas?:arta:

Apart from the question of game balance, and the fact that the SP 800mm mortar never got off the drawing board (not that that's stopped WG in the past), I suspect what might scupper this plan is the small point that the reload time is considerably longer than the average game of WoT (in fact I think it's longer than 15 minutes), so playing one would be a particularly boring and unrewarding exercise.

I don't think we need another arty in the game, but we could add Karl to WoT in some form in celebration of community gathering in Sweden.

Think a 15 min reload arty is a really good idea....in fact lets just remove all arty and give these players that as compensation!!!!!

Forget the Ratte, I suppose he'll want a Landkreuzer P.1500 Monster as tier X arty next...

The question is, would it be better than the tortoise? :)

WG should introduce railway guns. They can only be used on certain meps, are spotted from spawn and fire once per game, however, they can take out half the team at once.

Best implemented as a virtual weapon.

Each team gets to nomimate a map square of their choice in which everything in it gets destroyed.

The strike time has to be at least 2 minutes into the game.

@Teadaemon Ok bear with me but there is so much wrong with your first reply... First, the 800mm one isn't the Karl-gerät, the 800mm one was a railway gun aka Schwerer Gustav or Dora. the "Karl" was a 600mm SPG mortar. Second, they wheren't drawing board projects, there were 2 800mm guns named respectively Schwerer Gustav and Dora. 6 Karl-Geräte were build aswell, the most famous being "Thor" and "Odin". I'm not trying to be a jerk here, i'm just trying to be historically correct. You are right about the reload though, either gun could only fire once a battle max, Karl twice if it were pre-loaded. PS: i couldn't quote cause i'm on mobile device and it just wouldn't want to work. :/

Only if they make it an auto loader could this work! Maybe a six clip magazine with a 1.7 sec aim time. It still won't be as op as the eft e100 but what the hell

Of course they're already working on that:
