Thunder, you might want to add that ALL tanks are marked as gifts (with gold value) during supertest to your OP. Thunder, you might want to add that ALL tanks are marked as gifts (with gold value) during supertest to your OP.
Also known as the FailLowe, the stats of the tank has been released.

As you can see this tank is essentially the more speedier version of the E-100 with a somewhat smaller profile. The tank cost is 22500 gold,  ALL tanks are marked as gifts (with gold value) during supertest . However not much is sure what the future of this tank will be, except that i will be very special with probably changes to the stats.

Why did we need multiple threads of this? Or were you simply unaware of the other one up until now?

Unless it's a premium, I don't see why anyone would want it.

It's basically just a tier 10 lowe. No armor, terribad depression made even worse by the fact that it has a rear turret, and the E-100's gun. You can't even sidescrape with it because of the bulge on the sides.

240mm of frontal armor (flat) will not bounce very much in tier 10.

It is unlikely to be a premium, the gold cost is just a placeholder until it is properly put into the tech tree on test.

See the link, not announced leaked.

Just found it at the third page of the game play discussions. Sorry was not aware.

This technically wasn't announced, this was a supertest leak apparently.

Ah, didn't realize it'd fallen that low.

Gun: Very workable with HEAT rounds.  Check.
Armor: 240/160/120 all around both hull and turret.  Check.
Speed: Less HP/ton than the E100, but more than the Maus.  Minus.
Intangibles: Excellent side armor and rear turret perfect for side scraping. Check.

Overall, looks promising on paper if you like heavy tanks and don't care about having to shoot premium ammo to have any chance at being effective.

Those who own the 183 seem to primarily use HESH, thus i don't think it would be that bad.

People are assuming it will have a 240 mm lower glac. Do you really think they would do that? Same flat frontal lower as the current Lowe. This tank was to weigh 72-76 tons, have 100 mm frontal armor, and a 10.5 cm gun, smaller than the current Lowe. Now it shows up with 240 mm armor, over 120 tons, and a 15 cm? And of course, you have to use 100% premium ammo, swell.

How about giving credit to the guy who shared this in the 1st place?

The Failöwe is marked as a gift, just like all supertest tanks are regardless if they will be regular or prem on release. This is because super testers don't buy the tanks ingame, WG "gift" the tanks to the account.

The armor model clearly shows 240mm

His name is silentstalker and he is known to leak a lot of info. Even included the link at the top of the post.

For the last time, both the Leichter Löwe and the Schwerer Löwe had rear turret designs, not just the Leichter Löwe. At this point I don't know whether you're just reading what you want or willfully ignoring anything that goes against your illusions.

Spamming HEAT at tier ten shouldn't be anything to complain about.

And we know your entire purpose on the forums is to tell everyone how awesome German armor is. Heck, you think the Failpanther will be good too? Bet you thought the JPE was a great idea. Maus is awesome too? How is the current 4502 doing? A rear turreted E-100 with terrible traverse and complete inability to poke out or use depression, and somehow you say it is awesome.....

Failowe will fail, period. Game is about speed and firepower. Armor is largely useless, especially a rear turreted tank that has one use, to sidescrape. Until you show your actual performance, who are you to theorycraft?

If there is one thing you can count on WG to do, it is to change tanks before release. They change German armor for the worse if it is found to be functional. Those armor models are not reliable, look at the tortoise.

43km/h top speed with 24 deg/sec traverse. It's top speed isn't half bad. A reverse speed of 15km/h too.
