Pros and Cons
- Strong upper frontal armor and excellent whole frontal turret armor
- Reasonable gun depression for a German heavy, on par with the M103 and T110E5
- The large weight of 91.5t makes it good for ramming
- Excellent sloped armor
- Very strong, flat side armor perfect for sidescraping
- Lower hull plate is strong against even tier 8 heavy tank guns if tank is angled
- One of the best tank to hold a corner
- Light tanks will have great difficulty penetrating you in the sides or rear - assuming they are using regular ammunition.
- Very slow reload on the top gun compared to similar guns to its tier resulting low DPM
- Lower accuracy than its predecessors
- Tall silhouette
- Strong inertia - being tracked while moving at high speed will rotate the tank almost 90° revealing side armor
- Poor turret rotation speed
- Front-mounted transmission can damage or set engine on fire with frontal hits to lower hull
- Large tracks are easily shot off
With strong armor (especially at the sides, which makes it very good for sidescraping), a powerful gun, and decent maneuverability for its size, the E-75 is a highly capable tank. It looks very similar to its predecessor Tiger II uparmored and upgunned to tier 9.
The tank has a very high silhouette, so don't expect to do much hiding. Top gun reloads very slowly so make every shot count and aim carefully before each shot. The turret rotates very slowly so any medium tank can out-circle E-75.
However, in the top tier, E-75 is a perfectly balanced machine, whose presence in the list should make any opponent nervous. Very few opponents can penetrate your armor frontally without hitting weak spots.
The E-75 used to lack transmission hitbox, however it was placed to the front in one of the patches (E-75 is based on Tiger II and its powertrain), so it might suffer engine damage and fire from frontal hits. However it is still less prone to these than other German heavies due to relatively well-armored lower frontal plate, preventing penetrations in the first place.
The tank is very sensitive to the splash damage from artillery, not to mention a direct hit. It would be very useful to have the E-100's screens, but in their absence, this tank must rely on agility and engine power.
The greatest danger for the E-75 in a direct clash comes from fast tanks. When fighting very strong opposition, "hull down" or "American" tank tactics can be used: hide the hull or even only the lower glacis behind a hill, stones or dead tank and shoot enemies from a distance.
- All the guns from the Tiger II carry over and can be installed immediately.
- The first thing you should research is the upgraded suspension.
- From there the turret is a great next step, and you can take your pick from there.
