... because the Brummbar isn't enough. We need ... the Sturmtiger! As any good Sudden Strike player knows, the Sturmtiger is the ultimate force on the battlefield. Horribly slow to move, fire, and reload, neverthe- less, a few well placed shots from it's 380mm Rocket-Mortar can alter the course of a battle. " In January 1945, a single round from a PzStuMrKp 1001 Sturmtiger reportedly destroyed three American M-4 Sherman tanks located in a targeted village."\

And those familiar with its Sudden Strike/APRM use will also recall that the Sturmtiger is nigh invulnerable, making the Tiger look like an M3. I'd actually recommend putting this monster into city maps, where it could potentially wipe out hard to get-to nests of infantry. It's sheer destructive power would be compensated for by its lack of close in weapons, and slow firing rate. Thoughts?

Well maybe not a city map where it could easily wipe-out itself. As tigers, they prolly were designed for open field combat and not to urban enviroments.

Sturmtiger - rare (around 50 were produced)

And on an open battlefield it would be nothing but a sitting duck. After all, it was designed to take out heavily fortfied positions, not tanks.

If it were possible to destroy whole structures, (which is impossible in BF1942 and BF2), the Sturmtiger would be really handy in urban combat. However, it's not, which makes it a sitting duck.

I must say, the Sturmtiger in Secret Weapons was AWESOME. Sure, it didn't behave realistically, but it was a fun tank to drive around and create havoc with.

IF the sturmtiger should come ingame, it should be placed on BotB maps and some city maps (the place I've read they were used).

Sturmtigers, like Brummbärs were designed in order to take out fortified positions on the Eastern front. As already said above: if only structures could be destroyable in BF it would be "THE" tank to have on city maps. But, heh, BF engine is as it is and that tank won't be really usefull ingame i fear (but it's one of my favorites)

IRC one of these 380 mm self propelled shells could wipe out a whole building when it was fired at the lower floors, yep that's the most efficient way to get rid of MG nests... Brits developped a similar concept with their Churchill AVRE and the explosive it launched: the "Dustbin" :)

I wouldnt mind seeing that baby ingame, even if its just one map..

I can imagine the enemy scattering, people abandoning tanks to seek shelter as the huge shell falls on their base.. BWAHAHAHAHA.

IRL reloads took 45 minutes.

The thing about the Sturmtiger is that unlike other "weird" vehicles, this one WAS produced and WAS used. Therefore it could have a place in FH.

Maybe Alpenfestung?
