today, we are going to talk about the Sturmtiger branch and how special will it be in the game – or, rather, how special could it be. Please keep in mind that this is just a proposition or an idea, certainly not a WG plan or anything like that.
I think I won’t be far from the truth when I say Sturmtiger and its branch are one of the most awaited vehicles of all times. It was scheduled for implementation even before (as you can see above, a model actually exists for quite some time, you can see the same model on the Severogorsk map as an “easter egg”), but the developers never managed to balance it properly and it has been postponed (several times in fact).
Why is it so popular? Well, it’s because it’s very, very special. You see, Sturmtiger (that being a popular name, it was actually called Sturmmörser Tiger) was an assault gun like no other. It had a 380mm (originally marine) rocket mortar of immense power. It was concieved as the ultimate fortification destroyer and assault gun – sure, the Russians had their ISU-152 “Zveroboy” (beast-killer), but this thing created HUGE craters, levelling entire city block with a single shot.
If you watched Operation Think Tank, you might know that the weapon was also exceptionally pointless – the blat was so immense that the officer who oversaw the tests noted that there is really no point for it to have such a thick armor, because in order to avoid its own shell blast, the vehicle can’t even get close to the enemy, making the armor kinda useless.
