The imminent new German Premium looks like it might be a useful crew trainer (Link); what do people think?

I think my IS-2 Berlin will love more soft slow targets.

I may pick it up, we'll see.  More German heavy crew training would work for me.

Actually does not look too bad.  Good sloping on turret sides and frontal armor but have to agree with the trap at the front lower turret point.

That was pretty much my reaction (I've always thought the 'Porsche' turret looked prettier on the Tiger II)...

It really is far prettier In fact I specially went out and found a Dragon model that had it for that.

And it has more frontal armor than either VK 45.02 P's should have

Enough frontal armor that the T-43 can auto aim and pen your upper plate 60+% of the time!

Angle it a bit and it will do fine so long it doesn't end up bottom tier every time one plays it, going to be buying one as using the B2 and sLowe gets stale. Almost on the 5th perk on some crew members because of the B2 :facepalm:

 

DPM is low though so vents and rammer here I come...

It looks like a pretty awful tank. terrible top speed, really bad DPM, no armor. Looks just like a slower tiger 1 with less DPM, not exactly a recipe for fun.

 

edit: yeah I just checked and it has 20% less hp/t thank the T-150. That's just pathetic.

It looks like a pretty average tier7 heavy.

Odd..

 

Looks like the Porche Tiger II turret on a Panther hull with Tiger II suspension and the Tiger II tracks

 

1714dpm, isnt that a bit low?

More DPM than T29, not by much though, less than IS2

I think it will side scrape well though just by looking at the armor layout, better than IS2 I think, because IS2 flattens part of its upper frontal armor to enemy if you try to side scrape

 

I'm a collector so I will likely get it...
