I would like to see a few more German Premium Heavy tanks.  They are useful when crew training and given the fact that there are far more Russian Premium Heavy tanks it would be fair.

 

The Tiger from Kelly's Hero's, the Tiger from Fury...

I think Germany is doing pretty well with their Premium Heavies in that they're all pretty good:

 

  • Pz.Kpfw. B2 740 (f)
  • Tiger 131
  • VK 45.03
  • Löwe
  • VK 168.01 Mauerbrecher
  • VK 72.01 (K)

 

 

Yeah, maybe people don't love the 45.03 that much, but I think it's a bit underrated because it has excellent gun handling, plus it has the benefit of being Tier VII.

 

EDIT:  Forgot to list the Mauerbrecher

The "Tiger" from Kelly's Heroes was actually another tank with stuff added.

 

Basically what you are wanting is satisfied by getting the Tiger 131.

Both your suggestions would just be reskins of the Tiger 131. Buy the Tiger 131 if you want that, maybe they’ll sell skins that mimic those someday, but they’d have to get licensing deals so I doubt it. The Lowe is the only German heavy anyone needs.

I have them all, what's wrong with say more Tigers?  We have T-34/85. T-34-85M, Rudy (which all three have basically the same characteristics)... not to mention all the Stalin tank premiums iterations.  As far as licensing... I really doubt there is any licensing issues as I have seen model tanks representing both tanks.

Yes, I know!   Its was a T-34/85 chassis I believe, at the time there were NO Tigers in operational condition, let alone 3.  But you're missing the point.  I can train one Russian Heavy crew in at least 7 tanks plus the "parent" tank and get the bonus for first victory of the day 8 times, with no penalty for fighting in a different tank.

If I'm not mistaken , wasn't the Tiger from Kelly's Heroes actually a T-34 ?

I would prefer to see WG implement a feature to transfer crew from one nation to another...as some nations have a lot of decent tanks (premium and standard) to train crews while other nations do not...

 

I would pay 500 gold per crew member to transfer them to another nation and reset their skills...

Thank you for the heads up but I already have the tiger and while I like the German tank line... the Maus and Mauerbrecher tanks IMO are the ugliest tanks in the game.

Tiger 217 is on it's way.  

And Historically accurate tier 7 VK 45 variants are already in the game files.
