German Tanks That Need Adding To War Thunder - Part 3
  • 5 months ago
In today's episode, we continue our exploration of German tanks that I think deserve should be added to War Thunder, such as the VK 30.01 (H), an early German heavy tank prototype that played a pivotal role in the development of the renowned Tiger I.

Additionally, we examine the 15 cm sIG 33/2 (Sf.) auf Jagdpanzer 38(t), a self-propelled gun based on the highly effective Jagdpanzer 38(t) tank destroyer, and the Hummel, another self-propelled gun built on the Nashorn chassis and equipped with an impressive array of shell types.

So join me today in looking at these vehicles, their history, stats, how they will play in War Thunder and why I think they should be added to War Thunder!
