How about we stick to blueprint tanks that were designed by germans for use in the german armed forces in the 20s to 50s of the 20th century instead of blueprint tanks that were designed by japanese for the use in videogames in the 21st century.

Also, WG.net is not free to just add content from other games into World of Tanks, copyright laws and all that stuff.

Actually, tank look just amazing. I spent some time working with Rhinoceros and here is result. Fictional or not, it is just lovable :D

(Made some changes. Different turret shape, exhaust system more like E-Series, Smaller gun, in Panzerfront it had 128mm, my version has 105mm KwK 45 L/52 like E-50 Added some skirts, coaxial machinegun and stuff like that...

Hope you like it :)

That is actually friggin´ beautiful F_J, have a +1 :Smile_honoring:

It looks alot more realistic now(especially without a impossible 128), but still have to admit I am not really a fan of adding fantasy tanks.

The hull took from the E-10 is still bearable, but the turret has "Japan Manga" written all over... too much F.J.Fry.

My 2 Cents, better stick with post-war prototypes...

Man, i hate Japan manga... Turret is little bit like Merkava, which is... well ironic :D

That looks awesome!!! Still, I don't know if it was a good idea to start this discusion ... I was just wondering what tank could be a German Tier X Medium ...

This tank is as much a fake as can be. nazi germany didnt exist anymore in 1948. "Zecke" is the german word for a certain insect, but i´m too lazy to go to google translator to find out which english insect comes out so i´ll leave it to the fact that only SPGs were nicknamed after insects and battle tanks after animals like tiger panther and so on. then the image is a halfway professional but still bad photoshop example with numerous small errors like the tank not driving straight and the people only being on one side except for the one kid. the tank itself is halfway workable in concept, but the gun seems just damn oversized and the turret looks relatively small in comparison. the hull is just a lame concept with so many flaws like the entirely missed opportunity for sloped sidearmor above the tracks and missing vision slits for the driver and the copy n paste tiger suspension.

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.
If you want fantasy tanks: I´m hanging in a pretty large private project of designing own tanks in Garry´s mod with actual suspensions and stuff. So far its been pretty fun what tanks get imitated and to what kinds of suspensions you get when designing such stuff. Currently I am working on a torsion bar suspension with interleaved road wheels. I´ve managed to get both a torsion bar suspension and a suspension with interleaved road wheels, but the latter are connected directly to the chassis so the usefulness is limited. and combining both is my next big project in that area.


I just noticed how far I drifted off topic.

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.

it did in blueprints only:

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

Blueprints were made early 1945 in the SS Technology Division.
Check this article out, and it is no game or manga related article, it is pure history.

And it is not important who developed it, important is the tank.

And since so many gamers are complaining about the flaws of Panther 2 etc, a new alternative high tier med tank would be a good idea.

You really believe that ?? E-10 hull with fake tracks, those of the E-10 run much differently, and then that turret....no comment on the black suns on the top, but "pure history" of a website, look at the homepage, full of UFOs, Yeti and X-files looking aliens, what a coincidence...

The problem is, couldn't find any visuals of that Schwarzwolf anywhere. The model on that site is just another Zecke fan art. Without at least a sketch, nothing will even be considered. Sure, would be lovely to drive an E-79 around, out of sentiment for the old game at the very least, but this here MMO doesn't deal in fantasy. Obscure historical technologies, sure, but historical nontheless.

No way in hell would German engineers allow that...thing's.... tracks to be exposed in such a ridiculous way. That alone is almost undeniable proof it's a fake.

Second, a 100mm gun? What? Why would they make an entirely new size of gun, which takes time and money, when they could stick with the same calibers they had, and use the same machines and tools? That makes no sense at all.

Lastly, all I'm reading is: OMG, had it been completed, it would have super awesomz electronic range finders, infrared sensors, CCTV, and mega-1337 bomb repelling armor. And laz0rs!

So a single web page, without any kind of documentation to back up their claims, constitutes 'pure history' to you? Really?  :blink:

Since i have Panzer Front,and i can see the stats of this tank,i'm sorry guys but it isn't a medium tank.
Lenght: 10,465m
Width: 3.710m
Height: 2,345m
Turret Front: 200@15°
Turret Sides: 100@38°
Turret Rear: 80@57°
Hull Front: 180@58°
Hull Sides: 80@14°
Hull Rear: 80@32°
Top speed: 35 Km/h
Weight:61 Tons
Weapon:88/71 early version,128/55 late version
Those are the E-79 ingame stats in panzer front,and with this thing i killed 4 maus without dying in panzer front.
This tank,if it was ever implemented,would be an heavy tank.
