I would like to know why the Ferdinand was not made, instead of the Elefant. The Elefant was a post-kursk modification of the surviving Ferdinands left over from the Kursk Battles, so why is it included in Prokhorovka, the lack of the hull MG wouldn't pose much of a problem in the mod, you'd be able hit targets from long range, if your getting into a CQ fight with infantry, your not using it right, close co-operation with infantry would be more effective than the MG anyway.

Just a few tweaks to the model and skin and you would have an Elefant. Putting one in is a good way to increase the historical accuracy of the mod.

yes but there is one other problem. The Elephant as a tank..........was a big hunk of crap.

EDIT - That is one of the unacceptable words. Please choose your words more wisely.

Yeah, using an assault gun (don't start the TD argument again) as a tank isn't in general a good idea ;) That's like using a bomber in a fighter role or something :p

But as for the Elefant in general, it wasn't crap, really.

Edit - There you go with the S word.

It was good at it's job but the fact is thay used em wrong. It was a mobile assault tank somthing people forget is that tanks with no turrets are only good for one thing to charge over open fields and shoot anything in sight. The Ferinbrand or how ever you spell that was the Elephant without the hull MG and almost no armor they are two defferent production models of the same tank.
