personally I love the Ferdinand and Jagdtiger 8,8 prem tankdestroyer and to continue this trend I'd love to see a new tankhunter like a ferdinand+ the famous elefant, I imagine you could make it an uparmored Ferdinand with an 8,8cm gun with either a higher rate of fire than the Jtiger 8,8 or better penetration and as a downside give it slower rotation and slower topspeed? imagine the frontal armor being 260 with the usual weakpoints (mg port, lower glacis) a speed of 25km/h and a rotation speed of 18dgs/s and a gun with 250 pen and 12 shots a minute doing about 240/250 damage on average? or give it a gun doing a whopping 500 damage with 250 pen and then 6 or 4 shots a minute? personally I'd buy a beast like this :P even spend quite some cash on it to make it perfect!, I'd say it's still a huge block of steel so camowise it should be terrible but with great optics?

I wouldn't buy it and I love TD's. I'd sooner have little armour and speed. Armour can be negated with prem rounds. Speed can't.

Can people please be satisfied with the already existing 8? 9? german premium TDs instead of requesting even more premium german TDs?

There's nations which can use a new premium tank a lot more than german with premium TD #10.

Not tier eight, may be a tier 4-5? but it looks fun.

Image result for E-10 tank

E 10: Light tank/tank destroyer weighing between 10-25 tons. The E 10 was to be built by Klockner-Humboldt-Deutz Magirus AG in Ulm in very large quantities. It was to replace the Panzer 38(t), Jagdpanzer 38(t) and the various Waffenträgers based on their chassis. One interesting feature of the E 10 is that it was to have “kneeling” suspension, that would have allowed it to minimize its profile while sacrificing mobility. Only a wooden mockup was built.

They are the same tanks, Elephant just has a machine gun port added, zimmerit and a commander's cupola added.

Your proposal is poppycock
