The idea is very simple ... give the Germans a 2nd tier IX medium tank: the E-79 Zecke!

What do you think about it?

As far as I know this vehicle really didn't exist, not even on blueprints. This tank was created for a game, there has been a topic about this months ago, can't remember exactly which.

Manga looking tank that has never ever existed in any form and looks ridiculous (try fit people and the gun in the turret)? Thanks, but no thanks.  http://cdn-frm-eu.wargaming.net/wot/eu/4.1/style_emoticons/default/Smile_sceptic.gif

E-79 is pure fiction from Playstation game "Panzer Front"

looks quite modern i guess...
turret a bit like the t54's one :D
and some nice slopes.
but actually a project from this days, not a original old-german invention.

Every couple of weeks it pops up. It must be haunting us.

2nd turret of E-50 is also fictional ... so where's the problem?  :Smile_great:

This game is fiction heavy as is, I`d rather have some actual existing designs added. There`s tons of real tanks out there that are not in the game, but should/could be.

Well, the Russians got fictional tanks in this game already. remote-controlled tanks, which don't require a crew, thus being able to completely give up crew
space for guns impossible to mount otherwise, saving weight for more armor and so on.
Not to mention the "Münchhausen" ammo which has far higher pen values at gold, then IRL, while others get the IRL for Gold and far worse for credit.

Yup, Panzer Front(PS1 and Dreamcast, Enterbrain studios, Japan, 2000) bonus tank, some smart guy put it on a website detailing German experimental tanks including the E-series and Maus without any kind of background checking for it.

With all the fantasy designs we got around already, i for one wouldn't mind having the E-79. It's at least famous.

If that thing ever got in, I for one would be switching games pronto.

One thing is having a fictional turret for a tank design that was half (only hull designed, not the turret), another one is adding a completely fantasy tank from another videogame... I can make up a lot of fantasy tanks but if they get placed ingame then the game itself goes down the tubes.
