I was just wondering if Porsche's Tiger was going to be added to FH. Some of the 100+ hulls that where produces in anticipation before rejection where used as Tiger I (P) tanks in Russia. Not many, only 15 or so. The rest became Ferdinand's or Bergertigers but still, they where used. It might not be priority but just wondering.

I think concentrating on vehciles that were used in greater numbers is a better idea. Things like this should be really low on priority.

Would be cool, but not for now, we need more important stuff first.

Why not suggest implementation of Maus while you're at it? I mean hey, it's not like it saw any action whatsoever and only two protos were produced, but it would be darn cool wouldn't it?

Not.

WW2 saw plenty of vehicles and other equipment, so why waste energy to include insignificant stuff that were very few in numbers.

Ok smartass, the Maus was of course a prototype never used, or at least never recorded used. There is a myth that it was used at the battle for Kummersdorf and knocked out over 100 Russian tanks before breaking down and being abandoned. The Russians deny this I think because of its red curtian, but seeing as how there where few tanks at Kummersdorf because it was a rocket test facility I don't think many where capable of knocking out the heavy tanks Russia used there except this tank. These Tigers where actual tanks. They where used on the steppes of Russia and some in Kursk. They served for a hell of a long time and had a very important role but where never mentioned much because of the normal Tiger looking almost exactly like it it was thought to be the same thing. They where definetly not insignificant.

like i said, maybe in .8 when everything real important is already added. And I believe I have seen one of these Tigers in a pic. Porsche Tiger- http://www.achtungpanzer.com/images/tigerp_5.jpg the turrets the same, but as u can see the hull is different. BergeTiger- http://www.achtungpanzer.com/images/bergep.jpg the rest became Ferdinands/Elefants which I hope you've all seen.
