After resreaching of the E-100. I found out that the E-100 is actually differnt then in game. The one you are playing is actually the E-50 Jadpanzer. They are both strong I found out that It`s actually bigger then the other. Here are the links to prove it.http://ww2drawings.j...Jagdpanzer.htmhttp://ww2drawings.j...-Jagdpanzer.htm.You can google it if you want to.

Interesting find. I was doing some research today and all the E-100s were like the E-100 crocodile

Your research is wrong.

Those are all creations by modeller Michael Rinaldi.

the only thing thats wrong visually with the current E-100 is the turret otherwise that hull is the hull they designed and built.

wish they'd give us the Krupp (pretty sure it was Krupp) turret that was designed for it, looks soooooooo much better :)

well to me I thought the turret for the in game one was to small for it. also some  tank destoryers (includeing German one`s ) usually have a slope desiged too it (like a hetzer for exzample).

l'll ask the question all of us wanted answered - why is not the E-9O Krokodille in the game? Sigh.....

German tier 9 TD, right there.

E-90 Could be in game in future updates. Maybe at best the other E-100 (the one I show) could make it into the game by being the
E-100 Ausf.B. like the VK 4502 (P). It`s the same just the turrets are turn around and there differnet.

Because it never existed even in conceptual stage.

And the fact WG would get sued to oblivion.


...But that is why we have modders.

Well, using the Krokodile's of any sort would probably require paying someone money for the royalties or rights to use the likeness.  Using historical data doesn't incur that cost.  As far as I have been able to determine, the best references for the E-100 all seem to be in agreement that the Maus turret would have been used on the E-100.  The Henschel (not Krupp) turret (similar to that used on the Tiger II and E-75) was an invention by someone else, which would probably also require payment/s for using it.  The Krokodile format probably wouldn't have been too good in any case, in real life.  The length of the guns would make navigating uneven ground or even city streets a nightmare, and the weight distribution would also have been difficult.  Jagdpanzer IV had to have steel rimmed road wheels mounted on the first set of bogies on each side to accommodate the extra weight of fitting the L70 75mm.  And if you can find pictures of the Porsche Tiger, you'll notice that almost all of the pictures show the gun pointing over the rear, to keep the gun (an L56 88mm) out of the way.

The E-10 and E-25 were real designs. I personally doubt there was ever really an E-5 planned.

E-5 wasn't the correct name. It was called the Rutscher, AFAIK there is no E-5 designation.

I hate the E-100 Krokodil monstrosity.
