Could we get self propelled siege mortars as an alternate arty line or as premiums? Like the German Karl Gerat 60cm?

 

Balance considerations:

 

1 they can shoot super close (no minimum distance) but with a medium flight time since the shell still has to go high even if shooting short distance

2 cannot direct fire or shotgun people so this helps balance their higher calibers

3 are suitable for city maps and can hit building campers since their flight arc is very high

4 maybe they act as an alternate line from tier 7 on or from tier 8 on or as a premium

No... no MOAR artymobiles... less artymobiles is far more preferable.

 

Zero artymobiles would be great.

60 MM?  Go big or go home.  I'm for 120 mm or larger or nothing at all.

Come on, man; dream BIG!

Hahaha noooooooo. You think arty is bad enough already but a 60cm round?

 

Wikipedia: 1 round every 10 minutes.

 

Also Wikipedia: minimum elevation 55 DEGREES.

 

Really getting tired of these ludicrous ideas.

I reposted the way Preddy really feels for his beloved arty.

There is a certain 380mm that WG gave up trying to balance on internal testing as it had no problems one shotting tier 10s years back even though it had a one minute reload.

You probably don't know but, just for the sake of informing you, the Sturmtiger had two aiming sites.  The first was for indirect fire.  The second was for *drum roll* direct fire.  The German Sturmpanzers were essentially TD/artillery hybrids and served both roles.
