Only a handful (some sources state just one) were (was) built in the final days of the war, as part of the Entwikkelung-series (E-series), and was used in the battle of Berlin in april 1945. Carriage is based on the PzKpfw 38 (Ardelt I), with the 88m KwK 43 L/71 gun (the same used on the Jagdpanther and Tiger tank), in a turret. Basically it's a brutal gun on tracks, with paper armour...

Then it was a brutal gun. If it goes like T8 with that armor and that gun it will be mediocre at best.

Speaking of french wheels, wouldn't it be like a french medium? agile, paper armour, good gun?
I love it's gun depression and elevation...

It is the gun of the PzJäger "Nashorn" (SdKfz 164) - in fact a Hummel with PaK 8,8cm 43/1 L/71.
Included in the new German TD Line.

Oh and by the way, E-Series stood for Entwicklung (development) / Einheitsfahrgestell ( standard chassis) series  ;)

Turret TD for germans.. hell yeah.. and its an austrian design.. double plus. :D

Would fit in the T6 pretty good, esepcial if you look at tanks like the SFL 4A (dickermax) or the nashorn... which has the same gun at the same tier... hell this would be first tank I would pay for if it would be a T6 premium TD with the L71. http://forum.worldof.../Smile_ohmy.gif

In the image that timer67 uploaded, in fact he seems a copy of the AMX 12-13

No not really... the AMX 12t was build later, has an oscillating turret.. and basically the child of different doctrine.

German late war designs where for defense, thats why you see so many big guns on relative weak  chassis. They where just there to make paks more mobile.
