The Ambush by rOEN911 The Ambush by rOEN911
Hi guys,finally i found some time to finish this one...

This is a fictional scene because this tank never saw action, The first prototype was never completed and was found by allied forces on the factory floor in 1945. The partially completed vehicle was removed by the British Army for evaluation and then scrapped.

Hope you like it :)

Well, it is E-75. Tiger II was his son :) But, E-75 was just a plan, like all the E-series.

it's not E-100
there're 2 possibility. it's either E-75, or E-100 Trumpeter's 1/35.
the prototype of E-100 never modeled like that

Dont quite understand your reply, this is a E100, the real E100 never had a turret installed as the factury was over ran by allies,  the devices along the hull were for mounting the extra external armor. Which is not on this one. Its very nicley done all the same...




I think the turrets a bit big for it to be  the super Panther E75 imho.

i don't think you get what i mean. and what do you mean by the 'real' E100? is there like the fake one or something?
what i am saying is the prototype E100 (as you say the real E100) never been produced. meaning there're no E100 at all. and this is the E100 Trumpeter's 1/35, the whole different type of E100. get what im saying?

in this case, not really. since this is not the E100 you're talking about. the E100 is using the same turret as MAUS, while in this pic it's not
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panzerka… check it by yourself. i've been doing research to some tanks recently. so whatsoever i'm saying here based on true fact

It's a Infrared nightvision devise which was used on the Panther and other tanks. First prototypes were tested in 1942 on 7,5cm Pak40 self-propelled gun.

Well now you know where that tech comes from.  They could see with them up to 600m but only in a 30° area in front of the tanks infrared searchlights, so they worked in conjuction with SdKfz.251/20 Uhu which were Halftracks equipped with 200mm IR searchlights to cover a bigger area.

Uhhhh interesting specialised vehicles for me too research :D.

i realise now that i meant generation 1 nightvision systems which didn't need the infrared searchlight

thanks for the info ^^

It's definitely an E-100 as the 128mm KwK couldn't fit in the turret of the E-75.

well by the design it sure is an e75 because i have one plastic model, but not with the big gun. rather the very long barrel pak88 i think, Because the e100 looked more boxy, but it could be some sort of modified version. But as it looks like an tiger 2 in design i go for e75

No it's an E100, note the missing bolt on side armour/track guards, advancing British forces captured partially completed E100 hulls at the end of the war, photos show E100 hulls piled on top of each other.

Great pic by the way, very menacing!

well, this is no Pz. VI Ausf. B (a.k.a. "Konigstiger"), rather E 100, from only one incomplete hull was made ;)
the difference is not that small, just look at the gun, that's no 88mm KwK 43 L/71, it is the monstrous 128mm KwK 44 L/55 (the same gun that was mounted on Jagdpanzer Tiger ausf. B "Jagdtiger" assault gun and Pz. VIII "Maus"), which won't fit into Königstiger's turret ;)

Another image with great detail, showing another 'might have been' concept, (although given Hitler's ridiculous preoccupation with so many tank designs instead of one or two like his opponents, it's highly improbable that any of these corkscrew designs, (the Ratte???, the Monster???), would ever have seen action). The E100 was the heaviest of a series to replace the Mark series, (the others being the E10, E25, E50 and E75), and Hitler didn't even have enough tanks of existing designs.

Interesting comparing this with the Maus. The E100 was supposed to be 140 tons, and mount a 150 mm cannon with an adjacent 75 mm short barrel. The Maus had the same armanent, but was much larger and weighed in at 188 tons. (There was some doubt as to whether the E100's turret could transverse 360 degrees, given the armament's weight). Another flight of fantasy for the Fuhrer's warped mind, which wasted a huge amount of resources and manpower for no result.

ZewelVonLelek Featured By Owner May 29, 2014
The turret would be 360 degrees transversible (the turret ring was as big as on Maus and the hull was lower, with the same width of tracks, which ment better stability)

Hitler's choice of Maus instead of E 100 (which from that decission was made only unoficially, else the prototype would be completed) was mostly because Maus was bigger and better armored, so it fit his megalomaniac complex more ;)

hobbitshire Featured By Owner May 31, 2014
I understand that the turret of the E100 was to have a 360 degree transverse. However, tests performed by the Allies on the half-completed shell they captured revealed that the weight of the gun and turret, (also remembering that the E100 was to have a secondary 75 mm gun), would have caused stress damage when the turret was at right angles to the chassis, perhaps may have even pulled it over. Certainly major design modifications weere required to make the E100 workable. Given that the E series was supposed to replace the Mark series, and the Germans didn't even have enough of the latter to even contemplate a new series, as well as designs on yet another tank, the 'Lion', (let alone the 'Ratte' and 'Monster') are further indications of Hitler's megalomania, in fact, he had lost all reason.

The E-Series was a GREAT idea for Germany as they had a plethora of various AFV's who mostly didn't have standardized parts, and the E-Series aimed to standardize all parts from the tiny E-5/E-10 to the monstrous E-100. This would've greatly increased production, as well as improve logistics, since what the Wehrmacht needed most by the end of the war was large amounts of equipment.
