"That PANZER XI COUGAR looks very sleek and definately more russian in design than german. :P But hey, at least they learned from their mistakes and made a tank that could effective engage russian tanks. :) "

If u got a look at panzer X,well,it seems they were searchin for new horizons
:D

According to the update, they will be announced the beginning of next week.

I'm not confident at all.  My designs were well thought out and everything, but my drawing skills are rather sub-par.

So are mine really... I mean I can draw side-shots, but not overhead or front or rear... That's why I used sketch-up.http://cdn-frm-us.wargaming.net/wot/us/4.1/style_emoticons/default/Smile_great.gif

...And I think the WOT crew is looking for concept rather than artistic skills anyway. It's the effort that counts.http://cdn-frm-us.wargaming.net/wot/us/4.1/style_emoticons/default/Smile_Default.gif

You can use the modified Maus chassis from my Jagdmaus for it.  It has outriggers to help absorb the recoil.

My tank that i made on Paint.
Panzerkampfwagen V/VI Puma
Details
Primary Armament: 12.8cm PaK 44 L/55 gun
Secondary Armament: 1x 7.96mm MG42
Armor: Max: 150mm  Min: 20mm
Engine: Maybach HL230
Max Speed: 49 km/h
Suspension: torsion bar
Weight: 55 tonnes
Crew: 5 (commander, gunner, loader, radio operator, driver)

Background History
Late 1943. The development of the Tiger and Panther tank proved to be outstanding, destroying any tank in its way. The Germans wanted to combine those two but not as a heavy tank but in between the heavy and medium criteria. Since the Tiger II was in development ideas of the hull has been put in to the tank, put without the heavy armor it has. The tank is made for taking hits while still have good mobility. It was deployed in 1944 just in time for the Battle of Normandy. It proved extremely effective and the Germans replaced the KwK 43 8.8cm L/71 gun that was originally fitted in the Puma with the 12.8cm PaK 44 L/55 gun. But the 12.8cm is not effective with the old turret so they had to design a new one. Adding on weight on to the tank its still has good mobility and now even more of a punch. Production was fast compared to the other high quality German tanks. Later in 1944 Hitler was impressed of this new tank and decided to find a replacement hoping to make a great tank even greater. But by the end of the war only 2 prototypes were built.
   Once it was introduced the Allies a hard time knocking out these tanks since the Puma tanks fight in groups. It took a long time before they eventually captured one and they ran it through trials and it proved to be an outstanding tank and that quickly made the Allies try to find an effective weapon that can destroy this beast fairly. But the only effective way the Allies can deal with it is hope that their artillery kills them before they reach them. The tank saw in bothe fronts and by the end of the war about 7,000 tanks were produced.

My new and improved version, Puma II
