Yep, you're right. Ah well, I don't know everything, after all.  :Smile-hiding:

Still, makes me wonder how they managed to pack them in there:

Said to be hoax ... also, Overlord stated in the past it will only carry around 6 rounds (balance reasons).

For the future uninformed readers, people freaked out about this yesterday because the article claimed it was coming in 8.4 and that it would be premium artillery instead of being an an assault gun line with the Brummbar

And then it was confirmed a hoax, though the tank itself is coming eventually

Which is reasonable... from what I've seen on it, it will have truly epic damage and splash.

If you stack them sideways, they can totally be used as seats.



Screenshot makes me giggle with abundant joy and I really wish they'd get friggin' implementing already.

It can have its historical shell amount, which isn't very high anyways (about 14 rounds). Just make it have a short range, forcing it to go closer to the frontline, plus its reload time must be atrocious.

So... Yeah. It's fake. Probably an elaborate custom skin.

Six rockets on the rack of each side : 12
One rocket on the ready rack behind the breech : 1
One rocket in the barrel : 1

So theorically it could have fourteen rockets in it. I'd say that the practical load would be twelve, though.

Is the tank behind you bad or good? If bad you are being trolled by him.

And took all 5 crew members to reload.

It had a loading crane on the back superstructure.

What you don't see is the crane on the back of the tank for lifting the rocket mortar shells into the tank for firing.  They(the shells) were roughly 4 feet long.  I seriously doubt it would have been fun OR WISE to pack 14 four foot long explosive shells into a cramped modified tiger chassis interior :)
