G.W. E-100
6100000
Development of this heavy artillery on the E-100 chassis started at the end of 1943, but it was never completed. No prototypes were ever manufactured and the vehicle did not undergo any trials.

While it is very similiar to the GW Tiger, it has a very slight boost on reload time, accuracy, a slightly wider horizontal arc, more ammo capacity and better armor. It does act like a middle ground between the Object 261 and T92. It also possesses a unique skirt armor, which absorbs splash damage, so a direct hit is needed to kill this SPG.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Nice gun range
  • Decent armor can deflect some shots
  • Skirt armor helps absorb splash damage
  • 13.28 tonnes of extra weight capacity that allows for mounting heavy equipment
  • It can go to deeper water than any other tier X SPG. Use this to your advantage


Cons:


  • Rather slow speed and traverse
  • Biggest SPG of its tier
  • Gun traverse is horrible
  • Gun is very narrow compared to the other nations of the same tier excluding the Soviet
  • The lowest CamoFactor in-game, along with the GW Tiger. 25 times more visible than a Hetzer when both are standing still


Performance

The G.W. E 100 has an enormously powerful cannon that can do massive damage, even with a miss. It is very large with a horrible camo value (as it is based on the E-100) which lets scouts spot it easily. It has sideskirts that protect the tracks, which decrease damage from counter-artillery fire. As artillery shots leave tracers in the air, relocating between shots to avoid enemy artillery pinpointing your location using the tracers is absolutely crucial to prevent an early death. The G.W. E 100 has some armor, with 80mm sloped armor on the front and 50mm on the sides, which can bounce a shot if you're lucky.


Historical Info

As part of the late-war German effort to standardize their tank production and maximize the production of cheaper, more reliable tanks the Entwicklung series was comprised of six different tank weight classes, from which several specialized variants were developed. Orders had also been given, from as early as 1942, to commence the development of the Geschützwagen (german for Artillery Wagon) series which converted existing chassis to mount greater artillery guns. These two projects combined at the end of 1943 to yield the Geschützwagen Type Entwicklung (GW Type E for short) artillery. Even though the GW Type E never got past the drawing board, it was nonetheless planned to have been based on the chassis of the Heavy Tank E-100. The design would have potentially been armed with a varying choice of high-caliber guns, ranging from the 70mm K 72 L/50 gun to the Skoda 305mm GrW L/16, and, like its earlier variants, would've had its armament mounted on the rail platform inside the hull, allowing it to be dismounted anytime. It would be operated by a crew of eight (Commander, Driver, Gunner, Radio operator and four Loaders) had it even seen service. The typical slopped armor layout from late-war German tanks was included, with a front-mounted transmission and reduced armor in comparison to the E-100. After World War 2, the idea of mounting high-caliber guns on tanks was abandoned, with 155mm howitzers being the usual caliber for Self-Propelled Artillery Guns.
