The Elephant is the German heavy tank-hunter, which has heavy armor and an armor-piercing heavy weapon. The greatest disadvantage of the tank is the turret’s stabilizer system. The Elephant needs to stop to open fire on any target.

BackgroundEdit

A major component of WWII tank-warfare doctrine was that certain vehicles were designated as tank killers, essentially self-propelled anti-tank gun platforms. This was the role of the Elephant (Elefant in German). It was initially called the 'Ferdinand'; after its designer, Ferdinand Porsche, but after some design changes it was officially called the Elephant on Hitler's orders. (Note: A strict vegetarian, Hitler often remarked to acquaintances that the elephant was the strongest of all land animals, yet ate no meat.)
