German tanks that could be added in game

Those tanks are simply amazing and WoT-capable. Check it out!

„So like I lot of people here (probably), I’m a bit of a tank hobbyist (because I’m certainly no unicum) and I like to spend a bunch researching tanks. In this post I’d just like to toss around some ideas for German tanks that could be added to the game just for the sake of generating some discussion.


Sturm-Infanteriegeschütz 33B (StuIG 33B)

Armament: 15 cm sIG 33/1 Infantry Gun

Armour: 80mm

Speed: 20Km/h

Probably its most notable feature being that it mounted the largest ever weapon classified as an infantry gun, the StuIG 33B would fit in well in Tier V or VI as something of a German KV-2 albeit in TD form. While the fucking huge gun prompts me to say it should go in VI, the shit speed, average armour, high profile and limited gun arc also make me think maybe it should be in V. Either way, it looks like it could be one of those silly fun tanks to use.

Sturmhaubitze 42 (StuH 42)

Armament: 10.5 cm leFH 18 Howitzer

Armour: 50mm

Speed: 40Km/h

An Assault Gun converted from the StuG III, the gun on this vehicle is recognizable as the derp gun available on the Hetzer. Probably sitting at Tier V (Possibly even leading up to the StuIG 33B if Tier VI works well enough for it), the StuH 42 could prove an interesting twist on standard TD convention by only using weapons that fire HE as opposed to high penetration AP guns.

RSO/Pak40

Weapon: 7.5 cm PaK 40/1

Armour: Practically none.

Speed: 30Km/h

The only way I can think to pitch this is as maybe a Tier II or III tank that makes up for otherwise shit stats by having a really good gun, basically making it play as a dedicated sniper.

With that said though, there was also a 88mm Pak43 L/71 version planned which was to feature a much more powerful engine which could justify a higher tier version with big punch and good speed, like a German Hellcat maybe. All that said though, I can still only see this fitting in as maybe a Premium Tank, it just doesn’t seem appropriate as part of a grind.

Pz.Sfl.II

Weapon: 7.5 cm Kanone L/41

Armour: 20mm

Speed: 50Km/h

More acceptable version of the above proposal due to having much more speed and actual armour, this vehicle might actually fit in around Tier III or IV and not be a complete piece of shit, but who knows.

Marder I

Weapon: 7.5 cm PaK 40

Armour: 12mm

Speed: 38Km/h

Nothing out of the ordinary other, would slot in nicely around Tier II as a faster alternative to the Panzerjager I, though the gun would probably have to be nerfed to compensate and not make it straight up superior. Actually, with all the listing above we nearly have enough here to start up an entire line and this might be a rather nice way to start it off.


So yeah, that’s my two cents thrown out, I’d like to hear what everyone else thinks of it all and if any of you have any tanks you’d like to see in the game~


EDIT: Made a visualization of what a research tree with these might look like!”
