Kampfwagenvernichter E-75 'Krokodil'

**Controls**

Pitch+Roll to move around and steer.
VTOL+Trim to move the gun. Traverse angles are -10/10* and elevation angles are -6/10*.
FireGuns to fire the main 17,5 cm gun. It reloads every 21.07 seconds and has a dispersion value of 0.37 @ 100 m.
Quite maneuverable for such a behemoth. Gets to its top speed quickly. Can climb almost anywhere on the map (remember, almost). In fact, I had to reduce its mobility. Currently, it's size is about 1.56 times bigger than the real thing. I had to reduce its overall weight as the wheels started going literally nuts.

**Short history**

Designed as a possible tank destroyer based on the Fahrgestell E-75, the Kampfwagenvernichter E-75 (shortened KWV, literally translates as "armored fighting vehicle destroyer)), codenamed 'Krokodil', would've been the most powerful tank of World War Two.

Mounting a massive 175 mm PaK 46/1, the Krokodil was also very well protected. 200 mm of armor on the front and 120 mm on the sides, along with 40 at the rear and 50 mm of roof armor, it was estimated that no Allied or Soviet guns could penetrate it from anywhere but the back. This, of course, came at a cost: 96 tonnes. The suspension was almost overloaded. Only the newly-developed Maybach HL245L engine which had 1,050 hp was able to power this beast, giving it a maximum top speed of 40 km/h on-road and approximately 30 km/h off-road.

While there seems to be record of one single prototype being built just before Germany capitulated in 1947, no documents have been found to prove so. Considering the state of Germany at that time, it is possible that such documents might've been destroyed. There are numerous accounts made by Soviet tankmen that they encountered a tank similar to the KWV E-75 but there are no photos taken of it.

    Really cool, excellent build. I have to admit that I quite dislike this fake, as it seems to want to imitate both the JPz 38t and Jagdpanther, while also being the biggest and baddest.
