So what do you guys think about this tank being on the German SPG line in the future? I saw this while playing Men of War one day. Shoots 600mm.....at the rate of 1 round per 10 minutes. Not sure how thick the armor is.

armor? lol, try 2-10. this thing was never ment to be in the mix like StuH42s or long toms.
theres no crew protection, so every HE round would kill its entire crew, and the thing oporated with a munitions PzIII, only had on it at any given time 1 shell.. the biggest issues if it was added would be ammo for starters, and then the fact that unlike the other SPGs. its gun can only go vertical. the entite monster has to turn, which would drive any one insain with the zeroing time. which I would assume be something in the 60+ seconds, being a 60cm mortar and all..

as entertaining as this would be. I cannot see it being a practical tank to use. keeping in mind also that these things were built to hit heavy soviet bunkers like Maxim Gorky not tanks.

You can file this in the same area as the P1500 monster being added to the game. The ONLY way an SPG with a 600mm gun would be added is if you enter a match, and aim at a tank 3 matches into the future, because there's no way they're going to allow a guaranteed tier 10, 1-hit kill weapon into the match you're playing  <_<

Yeah but the french get a 5 round drum autoloader in their BatChat 155 SPG that has potential to do 6250 damage on 1 drum. And at least this actually existed in WWII unlike most of the french tanks that didn't come about until after WWII.

Still, it's just ridiculous. Just THINK for a moment and you'll realize. It would be able to take only ONE shot in the entire match. Due to the shell, it would deal massive damage on a huge radius, basically ensuring a couple of kills. Hell, seeing how it takes 10 minutes to load a shell, and the fact that you always begin the match having to load one, you would have to survive for 10 minutes to even take that one shot.

The only possible way to see it in the game, would be if they added some sort of special battle in which you fight against the Ratte as well, and it's some sort of 15 v 3, or some crazy crap like that.

Found this off WIki. This building was hit during the Warsaw Uprising. A 2-ton mortar shell fired by Karl Gerat. Found a survivor displayed in a Russian museum.
