Hey, tankers!

Three Tier VIII vehicles are about to enter the Supertest. Let’s take a glimpse at what each of them are like before they hit the proving ground.

 

E 75 TS

Secondly, we have a Tier VIII heavy ready to bolster the German tech tree. Its name—the E 75 TS.

This vehicle is a fusion of all the brightest examples of German heavy tank engineering: the Tiger II, the E 75 and the Löwe. The classic King Tiger layout has been enhanced with the armor of the E 75 and the rounded turret borrowed from the Löwe. In addition, the sides have been reinforced with screens and the commander’s cupola isn’t large. All this combines to give the E 75 TS impressive protection in the front and on the sides. As for its HP, well at 1600 it’s one of the highest for its tier.

And the weapon’s not lagging behind either! This heavy carries a 105-mm cannon with an armor penetration of 227 mm with a standard AP shell and 282 mm with an APCR. It’ll take 12.3 seconds to reload, offering 360 damage with each shot. The accuracy is fine at 0.35 m at 100 m. You might think that none of these stats stand out at first glance. You’d be right looking at them individually, but together they come together to make one of the most effective weapons at this tier.

As for tank mobility, there’s no surprises here. Its max speed is 30 km/h, but this heavy picks up pace quite quickly. This means you can support an attack and get back to defend when needed.

The E 75 TS isn’t full of surprises in terms of its playstyle; this is a German heavy tank, which can both absorb hits and return fire. In fact, the solid weapon and armor will help you cope with any situation, or enemy, you encounter.

Have a nice day and good luck on the battlefield !

Seems like an interesting t8, take it this is the start of the E-100 line rebalance? Guessing this will take the Tiger 2 spot while that gets downtiered to t7.

I really hope this is the case. That would make that whole techtree a lot more relevant.

If even this tank get 360 alpha too for a 105mm, hope they will buff also the other 105-107mm gun to the new standard too.

Because they don't have enough completely made up tier VIII German premium heavies.

Their post on FB says it's going to be a premium.

 

[edit] I must have misread.  But I suspect it will be a premium.

I assumed tech tree since it'd be pretty silly for it to be premium with the Lowe and Mauerbrecher, and they've balanced it to be basically the current Tiger 2 adjusted to 2019.  There's also this that I could be misinterpretting: "Secondly, we have a Tier VIII heavy ready to bolster the German tech tree."

But then its being revealed alongside tanks that will most likely be prems :mellow:

I know that would be like the KV-5 and IS-6 and IS-3A and Defender / OBJ-252 all being Russian tier VIII heavy premium tanks.

If it comes, how long will it take to get to premium shop ?

I think it will be in tech tree, as there's another german t8 premium heavy on supertest.

Interesting. What's up with the three-tanks-all-at-once thing? I can't imagine WG placing three premiums on Supertest at once... Perhaps they'll indeed be for the tech trees.

One bulldozer is too many, we don't need a whole line of them.

 

Maybe a new game - World of Warbulldozers?

So if this is going to be the techtree silver tier 8 HT in the E100 line...

What would that mean for the E100 line, not to mention the Porsche/Krupp line since I'd wager that they'd become far less interesting/competitive as the result of downtiering the Tiger 1&2.

I mean, the VK45.01A is about as bad as the Tiger II atm, so downtiering/replacing one without changing the other would just make it utterly obsolete unless you're grinding past it.

 

And in the case this turns out to be a premium; what would that mean for the Löwe and Löwe owners?

Congratulations, your premium is now outdated?

At least the IS-6 has the gimmick of preferred matchmaking.

German tanks are "outdated" for years... from 2017 if not longer.

 

If this will be replacement, or re-work of whole german heavy tech tree, where Tiger1/Tiger2/E75 go down to tiers5-6-7 where they belong...

 

Somehow I doubt WG will care to fix anything... they did Fantasy over-buff every single British tank in the game, so why not German tree?

 

...I just dont trust them until I see it in the game, for them most easy way is just to sell them as premiums for cold hard ca$$$h,

3 new German Tier8 tanks, 2 Heavy tanks, One Medium, They all have 250mm Turret armor like every new Tier8 tank in the game.

 

If you want Tier8 German tank that is not Panther2 or Tiger2 - go and buy it.

No money $$$ ?  - Go play with 120mm medium tank Turret or 185mm HEAVY tank turret - Comrades on forum will explain to you how tanks are perfectly balanced and it is your fault if enemy destroys you with Light tanks.

IMO this should be a tech tree tank. We already have premium heavy tanks for all three German branches: Mauerbrecher for Maus line, Löwe for the E-100 line and the upcoming VK 75.01 (K) for the Panzer VII line.

I HOPE it's going into the tech tree as T8 wth Tiger 1 and 2 being downtiered.

 

Can we get some official news whether this tank will actually go into the regular tech tree or if it will be a premium / reward / bond shop tank?

Is there any anything historical about this tank or is it as fake as it can gets?
