Out of curiosity, what would be the closest TT tank similar to it? So far, nothing comes close to it in all the nations tanks. Not talking about looks, but play style.

That's a good question especially since the nameless is basically a tiger 2

Panther 2 as that's what it's based on :)

The closest comparison I can think of would be a downgraded E50, but like you said about the Panther the mobility doesn't really compare.

 

For a vehicle with that size and mass it moves really, really well.

Yeah, played a match a few days ago, team got wasted, and they had nothing but heavy tanks left. Kept making them chase me around the map, but eventually they gave up and went to cap the base. Its hard to take on 2 conquerors at once plus a fatherland. damaged the ammo rack on both conquerors, but had to retreat. Lost the match, but didnt die and kept on fighting.

Good question! I actually can't think of any close fit.

 

The Panther has a very different gun and is slower.

 

The E 50's gun is (still) much better, and so is the side armor.

 

Maybe the Easy 8?

Only tank that truly comes to mind is the cromwell, but the edelweiss has somewhat usable armor, the cromwell does not. The easy 8 is too slow.

I love the tank, but I dont play it as much as I should. Its hard to reach a good spot, have no backup, and then having to advance towards future victories without dealing enough damage. Its even worse for the nameless. The speed gets me into trouble.

Why would I give up one of, if not favorite tanks? And plus, you cant give away tanks that you played with or bought for yourself.

I haven't played any Tier VIII medium like it. It can do so much. I would say it's the best Tier VIII medium. Should play it more.


There is literally an Xbox 360 in a museum, and this is the best joke you can come up with?

I know, but I been working on other lines and focused on them instead. But Ill occasionally hop in and go for a match or two.

This is off the vci wiki. The Edelweiss is essentially a smaller version of the WWII German E-50 Panzer project with similar specifications. Both the Edelweiss and the E-50 are armed with a 88mm cannon, equipped with a 800hp engine and have a maximum speed of 60 km/h

I haven't played it, but the Indien-Panzer is probably the most Tech tree like version of the Edelweiss. Same Alpha, more gun depression, decent Turret.

The Mutz, CDC, and Edelweiss are all pretty equal if I had to rank them.
