Can you provide Blueprints or pictures of the original Prototype? I cannot find anything except WoT.

There are a few drawings that I have used. But the more confidence is the text information to the specific values. Because the blueprints widespread on the Internet rather drawings, and in fact only convey the general shape of the tank.

Test drive my tank. Tired of looking only at the model decided to take a ride on it. Mobility is not a passport, and a whole bunch of settings, not as necessary, but will deal with it later, the main thing that is discharged without problems.

I wonder if there is any possibility of Gaijin adding it to the game. Seems like a German Hellcat.

More like a german M24.

It is basically a baby Panther.

 

As far as I know a prototype without armament was build. The gun was commonly used in other tanks and vehicles. The only problem I see is that there is no light tank tree for it to fit in.

What br would it be? I mean it has a the same armour in the hull as a normal panther but with 80mm frontal lower plate and 60mm sides which is better and a panther II like turret with only 80mm.

The problem is that the gun its just a 50mm and it has better armour than a kv-1 so it will probably have a br were the gun have problems penetrating stuff frontally (4.0-4.7?)

Anyway I support this project because I like the idea of a tank with a hull better than the panther one but with 2.0+- less br because gun and turret armour :good:

5.0 BR maybe? Germans are lacking 5.0-5.3 tanks

The problem is the gun, afaik it's the same 50mm gun as the panzer III and the max pen is 97mm with the APC-HE shell

 

 

It also has 2 APCRs (And we all know how useless apcr is at dealing damage):

 

One that is more heavy (I don't really know if the weight affects the damage) and pens less with 128mm max pen

 

And the other more light but with 150mm max pen

 

At 5.0 you either flank (This tank would be used like a T-44 then) or you spam the last apcr (at least 5 shots per enemy)

 

If we considerate this is like kv-1 zis but with:


+Much better acceleration and speed

+Much more frontal hull armour

-Worse turret armour

-Worse gun

-Worse hull side armour

 

I think this tank should be 4.7 simply because the gun limits it a lot, and the turret can be penetrated by any 3.7 tank with AP-HE and be one-shotted because (I think) it has 3/4 crew in the turret

Amazing job, keep it up! :good:

 

Don't forget to test the turret ring armor. Would be bad if .50 could pen it because of how shells are modelled as pixels.

 

Edit: Maybe side-skirts my be setted as an "add-on armor" upgrade :)

That looks fantastic, great job! Are there any resources you could direct people who want to make tanks like this to? Are there any guides/tutorials?

 

Thank you very much for everything you've done, and keep up the good work!

Yes he is trying for revenue share program but from last I heard, gaijin is not accepting the vehicle into the game because they don't have enough evidence it existed as working product.

 

So if you have good research skills or have friends that can do this, then you can help him with finding evidence.

but I think this second antenna in the back is unnecessary, If this is not the final design I hope it will be removed, except this little detail it looks nice :)
