I think it wouldn't. I used to love playing against Maus when it was the only huge pile of steel in the game and I miss that feeling. Maybe not to real proportions, but I would love to see Ratte like 2-3 times size of Maus

 

And for those that don't know how to use Google to see what P1000 Ratte is

It would only make sense if it was Soviet.

Have you ever played this game? I have to ask because if you have and cant understand why something that big would not work on most maps I have no idea what to say to you. I suppose they could put it in for a special event on a special map though. for the comedy and fun .

So trying to get posters to bring your stats up isn’t working anymore then?

This as realistic as all the obj-XXX tanks. This should be implemented.

I would play arty vs that tank or an ELC and hide underneath him and shoot him from inside.

 

Or I would just play a medium tank and load gold ammo and pen that landkreuzer randomly frontally in the ammo rack from across the map since he can't pen my turret anyway.

 

Nah not a whole lot would change :D and that thing would probably just get 3500 hp anyway since well, sometimes tanks 1/3rd the size of my tank have only 5% less max hp.

 

Is gonna be hard to drown that thing though if your team loses.

Well it would certainly be ground-breaking if nothing else.

That would be about as realistic as putting the Yamato in fords and trying to have all the tanks kill her, ain't going to happen.

You... what?

Assuming it has the same 28cm cannons as the SMS Scharnhort:

That's in kilometres.

Yes, that's 455mm average pen at 5km.

It will pen your turret.

 

That said, the P-1000 Ratte was dismissed even back in the 1940s as a fantasy by Albert Speer and Heinz Guderian.

Yeah in reallife that thing would pown (and run out of fuel). But this is an arcade game. WG will probably resize that thing and give it only like 420 goldpen and 35sec reload and 1500 alpha max. In Wot: 430U only turret visible > Landkreuzer. Also detracking that thing would be easy and it probably has almost no gun depression.

 

Otherwise the JgdPzE100 would also penetrate EVERYTHING frontally all the time but it even bounces tanks sideways on occasion due to aim rng + pen rng. So I would not worry too much about the Landkreuzer it would just be a glorified Maus/Type5 that you can pen frontally with gold ammo as a scout.

 

Also imagine having to train like 2000 crew members in that tank...

Maus used to be super big comparing to other tanks. And I wouldn't put P1000 up to scale

Not at all, 65-70 per cent tanks in the game are fantasy tanks

It would have to be balanced. And the game is already full of fantasy tanks

I would like to see it in a fun mode or something. P1000 vs Leviathan would be interesting.
