When is wargaming going to introduce the one true arty to this game? The current arties we have are so lackluster and luck based. On hit from this one true arty with HE would destroy 5 tanks at once. If you don't know which arty I'm talking about here's a little pic:

IIRC the 1.0 version of Steppes has the Schwerer Gustav just outside the play area.

I want that ammo-crane-tank in jabster's picture. I bet it would be fun to smash your shells directly at enemy tanks in CQC. :playing:

Yes, introduce it. But only on maps with rail lines. Should make Widepark fun. Wonder how much hp one can farm from flank hits?

 

Wait... is Widepark staying in version 1.0?

Every time I get reminded just how insanely big these things were, I can't help but think: thank god the Germans wasted their resources on silly stuff like that instead of useful equipment.

You can thank their megalomaniac Führer for that.

 

On topic, no.

 

1 - The maps are too small

2 - Despite the changes, SPGs are still [wrongly] hated

3 - WG already stated premium SPGs = not happening.

 

Although I wouldn't mind for a Bandkanon 1C. That would be the Mother of Bias.

80cm shell, imagine the splash from that.

30 minute reload, shame battles are 15 minutes long:(

Yes why not have it provided that it shoots at its original design range only.

Basically Arty players can sit there and imagine that they are shooting things 25 miles away while we play on our 1000m square map.


Also give it 5000 HP and 10mm armour so we can farm it.

perhaps they would shoot on to other maps being played on the server. Bring a whole new level to sky cancer

No worries:
 

Schwerer Gustav: 

Rate of fire 1 round every 30 to 45 minutes or typically 14 rounds a day

And yet the French had 52 cm railway guns, and the brits hat 45.7cm railway guns. Not 80 cm but nevertheless massive. And the French 520 was indeed WW I.
