Hello there,
reading my ass about almost every topic i found here about the upcoming heavy, i decided to visualize the wishes of the community concerning turret and armament. Main thread & turret voting:http://www.google.de...dMIjTtAafncDtBg


Version 1:
Posted Image


Version 2:
http://img821.images...feldupdate1.jpg

What we got here, is what Overlord once explained: "E-100 is likely to be an upgradable tier 10 with two turrets and two guns available." (taking the wishes of the community into account, the standart gun and turret should be differenced from that)

The E100 rolls in the with maus turret, a slow massiv turret, seemingly unpopular but massiv build.
Why to put it as standart turret? Its high likely, that if the hull of the E100 would have ever seen a turret, it would have been this one. On the other hand, it would have never gone in mass production, because this design of turret has already shown its mistakes in 43/44.

The 2nd turret available is the adlerturret, the community prefers this one over everyone else, since its design is very well - and to be honest, it has a real bad ass look. The weapen which would be available on that smal turret is the jagdtigers 12,8cm Pak 44/2.

The 3rd turret available is the kruppturret - a massiv box design, but may be still better designed than the maus turret. What is the huge advantage of this steelbeast: The 15cm KwK L/38.


Best regards and have fun discussing about the upcoming heavy, hopefully we can make the moderators take a look at the wishes of the community!

Thor

According to Overlord:

Adler turret isn't planned.

yea indeed, thats another reason for this thread  :Smile-izmena:

The other thread made the devs may consider the adler turret, with this one here we can show even more support for it.
Adler turret for the world  B)

Eide wrote in this thread " [...] Seen a lot of good points here regarding the E-series tanks though, interesting reading material."
Sounds like we may have a chance.



who doesnt want that E100 o_o

I think the Adler turret certainly looks better and would prefer that.

From what I've seen, the Krupp turret was big but not particularly well armoured. Not going to work with such a big slow target. Plus it's ugly and I would suspect it would have the T29 turret ears bug with the bar across the top.

Thread on the EU forums: http://forum.worldof...-which-turrets/

@OP: Change Henschelturm to Kruppturm in your pic. The Henschel turret looks perhaps worse than the Krupp turret. Otherwise, great pic.

need 170mm on that tank.

being less armored than maus(which you know has crappy armor, which oso has its secondary gun) and still quite slow and its massive size which is almost a perfect target (especially for artillery) it deserves the fire power of a 173mm kwk

not to mention that the intented gun was the 173 kwk

Ahhh, Yes, I like these ideas.  Definitely something for Devs to consider is configurable Tier 10's, that way players can make them more to their preferred playstyle!

Also, I noticed that neither of the images above have all of its Skirt armor.  I believe this is an opportunity for perhaps another researchable module for the E Series in general, since Devs have already discussed the future ability of equipping add-on armor modules.

Just a quick note, when they say 2 turrets they mean stock and upgrade. No tank in the game has 3 turrets.

wow, very nice shots O.o
I just noticed your email about the side skirts.

I would like a upgrade like that, but there are no upgrades for addional armour in WOT. Or are ther any news about that?

I would suggest the side skirts to be standard, otherwise this wont be a TX tank :).


Best regards!

ps: I should maybe change the techtree, deleting the henschelturret and adding the krupp turret ;)

E-series is not as far away from now as you might think, it will be introduced prior to French tree.

Interesting news from the Euro-forum!

it does indeed look like crap, but maybe its a balanced way to add the 150mm KwK.
Im thinking about to add it, but im not sure yet.

Imo, both, krupp and esp. the maus turret wouldt have been fittet on the series produced E100. Both designs, were quite old (esp. maus, which proofed to be a bad design seen at the KT) and also the Krupp turret makes no sense in the same way on such a massivly armoured tank.

What do you guys think about the Krupp turret?

@terminator210, could you may send me a e100 model picture angeled from the ride side, so i can put it into the tech tree? So we could have the side skirts fitted as well :P. I mean, You got these great models o.O

Here is the updates version of the image. Credits of the new E100 image go to Terminator210, who send me this picture of his model. The new E100 picture has the sideskirts, probably the version in which it will appear in the game as well.
Whats also new in this version of the picture, that the henschelturret has been exchanged with the more massive krupp turret, taking the 15cm KwK into account, this turrent would be quite balanced.
-> this way we got a flexible tank, which has either a better gun, or a better overall armour. gg!

Any official news yet on approximately when the E-series will hit the Tech Tree?  Or at least where exactly they will sit in the Tree?  I have limited time available to be able to grind up and be ready for Clan Wars, and the E-series is the way I am going.  So it would definitely be nice to know for sure which paths to take and if they will be ready by the time I get there.

Thanks!
