Bear in mind those 6 cm were sloped at 30 deg from horizontal, giving a nice 120 mm of effective armor, and that's not taking the effect of the incoming round hitting a sloped surface into account. The Hetzers bounced shots in WW II just like they do in WoT.

The thickest armor was present on the gun mantlet; most other sections of the tank were pretty thin. In short, don't get shot. :p

I'd rather have a 90mm gun :D

and i believe the Näshorn came with an 88mm, or the devs deem the Näshorn a better tank, seeing as construction order is usually not the deciding factor in tank order on the tree. Although it generally is the idea to make better stuff later in the war due to experience on the field, which is largely reflected in the tank tree, save for a few tanks(Hetzer was made after the StuGIII IIRC)

Dicker Max had a long-barreled 105mm, but ballistic information on the gun is thin on the ground. (The two vehicles made are credited with somewhere in the range of 30 T-34 kills, though, at a time when most German tanks would struggle to reach 5.) The general design features of the Dicker Max were eventually incorporated into the JagdPanther/JPzIV/JagdTiger, so overall the design was clearly sound. It was literally the prototype for most of Germany's successful heavy tank destroyers.

The Nashorn and Elefant were off in a little cul-de-sac from the main design school. They might both be superior in armor, certainly the Elefant was, but it's just wierd to see them in the same tree immediately after the Dicker Max and before the others.

Well, the Dicker Max in Men of War only has a 75mm gun.. the L/48 i believe it is.

 
If the Internets are correct, Dicker Max had a 105 mm. The Sturer Emils were more interesting characters, who doesn't know what they were should take a look.

The Maus is here? The Ratte is here?

lol just asking
With the rapid increase of FS fan-made campaigns, we're giving the GTVA a harder time with more violence and genocide.

The Maus is in game, the E-100 will join it.
Ratte isn't planned AFAIK.

This actually reminds me of Steel Panzers or something (kinda forgot the name). Heck, nearly every single tank and military vehicle you could name was there; the KV-1, KV-2, Maus, Jeep, FCM, T-100, you name it.

But I never really figured out how to play that game. It doesn't have a tutorial! So hopefully I could try this out and see if it's quite enjoyable.

Woo, got me KV-3 today, played 1 game in it, practically saved the game by making their top tank die right as my teammate was at 1%, he was very thankful and didn't have another shell slung at him, i only took 1 hit to me tracks.

Had 3 kills and over 5K xp thanks to V-E Day's extraspecial extra xp :D

So i bought new tracks for her to make her feel woozy :3

I've got to say it. So far the AT-1 has proved to be real fun, I'm almost sad that I have to sell it and move up to SU-76 soon. That small thing is a beast when pimped to the maximum. I've played with against higher tiers aswell (me with AT-1 and my friend with a KV3 in a platoon for example), and actually done damage -and even got a kill too :p

I jumped straight to SU-85B in the Beta so I didn't have any experience how the AT-1 handle itself, and boy was I surprised.

Oh and twice I've had a 9kill round (screenshot from one of them) with AT-1. Almost three times but the latest attempt failed during the last shots when M2 Med got a better shot than me (damn russian operators were not drunk enough to hit anything on that shot).
Habeeb it...

the SU-76 is like a bad version of the 85B, so i suggest you skip it and save yourself the years of stress xD

I won't be skipping over it since I don't have any gold to convert free experience. And besides, now that there are more players there is a good chance that the SU-76 get's into a fight where it will be on the top of the list. I have a feeling it won't be that bad then.

And usually all of the tanks are quite bad as a stock. I'm keeping faith that a pimped 76 will keep me entertained for a while.
Habeeb it...

Uhm, you can of course get a T-34 and use that to get the SU-85, that way you skip two tanks that are actually horrible and you get a tank that is awesome, provided you grind the 107mm gun :)


EDIT: SU-76 is horrible, PERIOD.

Sure that's one way to go aswell, buut I'm already ramping up my 76 and so far it's going just fine.

So against my better judgment I'm playing again.

The M3 Lee is a better tank destroyer than my Marder II.

The M3 has some bouncy armor, too bad they didn't implement it's turret yet.
I've also noticed lately that the higher the Tier gets the less realistic the game due to HP growing at an enormous rate towards the end...

The M3 is a pretty peculiar tank, and may pack up to THREE gun turrets, including the hull turret, the 37mm cannon turret, and a .30cal turret (which is atop the 37mm turret). The only thing more rediculous is the infamous Soviet land battleship, better known as Pazer Fodder. :p

Oh, man. I love it when I see a Marder II on the battlefield. Free XP *rubs hands together*

Speaking of the M3, I just sold that piece of slag for an M4. Moving up in the world, Ma! Hopefully I can get to the Easy 8 in a hurry, it was a great cash-cow back in the Beta days, and should handily finance my way up the German heavy tree. The VK3601 is expensive, and I don't even want to think about the Tiger I & II.

I have now pimped my MS-1 to an unreasonable degree. It was a naturally-grinded 90% crew and camo nets, ventiliation, enhanced gun-laying drive. Bring on the Maus!

(No seriously don't, I saw one in a training match, the damn thing murdered my entire team. Tigers and and KV-3s beat their brains out on its side armor.)
