Well, This is and must be possible to add this SPG in the game! Why can they add the WT JGPNZR E100 or SPG E100 in the game, the unexist tank but the Sturmtiger and the STUPA(Brummbär ) not? that's the biggest cr4p I ever heard. so

WOT (Wargaming) Where are they? Than ím gonna play die hard for it! and U know business? I hope they heard from it.. ahim ahum.. caugh.. caugh.. Gold.. caugh caugh. 

 

I Agree If its in game! I disagree Lorraines and AMX's! so whats te problem than? hurry add it in the game! almighty thing!

Absolutely, it would be a beast, tier 8 (or 9) TD or arty, germans always need more of those!

I am serious I want it in the game!

 

+ another idea add a 2 shot auto-loader to resarch on ST-I to make it ST-II, (2x440 damage, 2-3 seconds delay after shots with 25-30 second reload), or something like that...

I suspect they might add it - there was the 'secret' glimpse in the shed in Severogorsk.

 

However it is completely irrelevant to the game unless we start getting rewarded for blowing up buildings and they would have to invent some new flight mechanics to cater for the rocket-propelled, non-ballistic trajectory of the shell. Also, the reload time (a few minutes?) would make the thing pretty much unplayable. Stick with the ISU if you just want a big, fun gun!

 and armed with a rocket launcher.

 Ehm.... No, a mortar is not a rocket launcher...

 

Even with the second charge it is not. That would make it an rpg launcher, not a rocket launcher.

big gun, big fun!

 

And this thing has the biggest gun (of any ``tank`` ever built) so it will be the most fun!

I think that depends on the definition of 'gun'...

To the people who are requesting it in game : NO
They tried implementing it, they tested it, and when it one-shot a Maus without even ammo racking it nor setting it on fire, they understood  that it was an extreme they simply could not implement.

Putting it in game would either be useless and boring  to play, or massively overpowered and the only thing played.
And this is coming from developpers who see no problem implementing an OP tank, making people spend gold to get it, then nerfing it.

Just to put it in perspective, WG have shown us that they don't really care about gameplay by putting tanks like the ex-270mm pen HESH fv183 and the WTF E100....and they don't want to put the Sturmtiger in.

I agree it wouldn't really work in game without altering it to the point it is nothing like the real thing. Not because of the one shot capability but because everything else would need to be so bad to compensate for the alpha damage. The FVB was an appallingly bad tank that had the sole compensation of being able to nuke stuff in one shot. This is seen as ok at lower tiers but made people cry at T10 for some reason. This thing would need to be twice as bad at being a tank and would be zero fun to play for the most part. The only way it could possibly be made to work is as an indirect fire arty piece like the Conq' gun carriage but with worse accuracy and reload times. Still no fun to play and with a pointless amount of alpha damage potential.

 

Nice vid as always btw.

 

Ps what really showed they couldn't give [edited] about game play was unlimited prem ammo especially on high tier meds.

Agreed, no idea why it has "rocket launcher" in the written description, at no time do I call it that in the video.

I want this in the game! There is already a model of this made. I'd like it at tier 7 with the same weapons as Jagdpanther (no need for howitzers if they would be too imbalanced). It would have better armor but be slower then a Jagdpanther...

Very nice video, Challenger! If they can't add this, they should at least add the Brummbar.

Actually I find Chieftain's videos a lot better, he has humour and is more pleasant to listen to. Also his videos are far more extensive in both information about the outside as well as the inside AND looking from the perspective of the crew.

 

The videos of the Challenger feel like a short introduction to a subject rather than a full length video.

It's really an informative video and it's well made but it feels like it's too short. I just find Chieftains Videos more entertaining to what. Also: Most of the time they are longer and give more details about the tank and it's mechanical working in general.
