It starts off as a pretty good, but somewhat predictable mecha, but then, as my friend so eloquently put it, "the series is bad ass until it took it's little off the rails," "oh it goes so fucking far off the rails" The movie is the original Episodes 25 and 26, Gainax had to do alternate episodes for the TV release, and they kind of sucked. They were 2deep4me bullshit, and there was no awesome fighting. The movie (true ending) still has some of the 2deep4me, but it also has EVA-01 and EVA-02 doing fucking work, so, worth.

It's a 1988 film, the animation is incredible, and it's acclaim is on par with many of Hayao Miyazaki's most famous films. It's about 2 hours long, and is among my favorite movies (in spite of the fact that I was born in the mid-90's.)

Btw, the "Porsche" turret wasn't designed by Porsche at all. Even the Porsche Tiger (VK4501) didn't use the turret (which is where the misconception comes from,) as it used a turret very similar to the one that was mounted on the Tiger I, in terms of shape and composition.

All that said, I suppose you're right (about the nitpicking thing,) seeing as the original inventory number for the Tiger I was SdKfz 182, and it was the Pz.Kpfw VI Tiger Ausf. H, then they changed the inventory number to SdKfz 181, redesignated it the Pz.Kpfw VI Tiger Ausf. E, gave 182 to the Tiger II, and named that Pz.Kpfw VI Tiger Ausf. B, which eventually was truncated to Pz.Kpfw Tiger Ausf. B

That seems a little nitpicky. Only a handful of Tiger IIs were deployed with the prototype Krupp turret, only about 50 or so out of the almost 500. You're not wrong, but it just seems a little unnecessary.

There is also the KV-5 project, which would have rivaled the Maus in sheer mass, weighing in at well over 100 tons. The project was scrapped due to the siege at Leningrad, where the hull was being tested. And unfortunately, the one complete Maus had severe mechanical issues which prevented full testing.
User avatar
#136 - AllYourBase (02/09/2015) [-]
The KV-5 was still leagues short of rivaling the Maus, which weighs in at a staggering 188t. And of all the tanks mentioned thus far, The Maus is still the only one that had a fully working prototype, even if it did have major issues with a number of systems.

(Btw, the only official reference to the KV-6 I could find was basically an up-armored KV-1 with a 76mm gun)
User avatar
#137 - trostell (02/10/2015) [-]
However the Maus was so heavy as to be completely impractical in every imaginable way, with its improved armor being ineffective against the American M3 90mm guns, and in particular the British Ordinance Quick-Firing 20-pounder gun, which would later be re-bored and used the world over as the 105mm Royal Ordinance L7 gun.

The 20-pounder gun could penetrate 12 inches of rolled homogenous steel, which is what typical armor plating is made from, though the German armor plating at that time was of far lower quality and less effective at stopping shells.

The incredible weight of the Maus meant they would have to operate in pairs at all times, and must all be equipped with snorkels and tow-chains, as they would commonly get stuck in the mud, and no standing bridge could support their tremendous bulk. The plan was to have one Maus push the first one up the opposite bank, and then the first Maus tow the second out of the river, a slow, lengthy process which left them far too vulnerable to allied air support.

To my knowledge, the surviving Maus has very few complete systems, most never finished before the project was cancelled. Two other tanks passed that stage and were complete, the T28 super-heavy breakthrough tank, and the Tortoise heavy assault vehicle, weighing in at 95, and 78 tons respectively. One Tortoise is even still in working order, and it is assumed the T28 (or Tank Destroyer T95, as it is sometimes referred to) did, at one time, run under its own power, as it was found in the middle of a field in Fort Belvoir, Virginia, in 1974, after being lost for over 20 years.

#138 - AllYourBase (02/10/2015) [-]
Its sheer impracticality and low level of actual function does not change the fact that, as of now, it is the heaviest tank that has ever existed in an operational capacity. Granted, it isn't the heaviest working tank today, as the one at Kubinka doesn't run. No other design that came as far as the Maus did even comes close to the nearly 200 tonnes that it was designed to (barely) heft around.

The tank is still a novelty, though. The idea that it was designed to be able to simply drive across the bottom of a river, while receiving power from a second tank remaining on shore is amusing, but, yet again, impractical. German heavy tanks typically operated in pairs anyway, as far as I know. The Tiger I in particular, after losing many to immobilizing breakdowns in combat conditions, began operating in pairs so that the disabled tank could be towed by the working partner.

Sometime in the near future, though, it may be restored to working order. The crazy Belorussians are pouring millions of whatever-they-call-money into restoring it to working order, and not the glorious and ridiculous TOG 2 at Bovington.

#149 - AllYourBase (02/10/2015) [-]
Tiger Tank  " Hand Crank Engine Start Up " Well, The ToG II is a land boat. The Maus is a fucking castle. Four flat sides, and a whole lot of menace. It also helps that the Belorussians probably have an easier time making contributions to the Kubinka Tank Museum than they do to the Bovington Tank Museum.
That said, Bovington is still my favorite, because they have Tiger 131.

They also have the ridiculous physical proof that the British captured a Tiger by what amounts to throwing pebbles at a car until the driver decides to get out.
User avatar
#151 - AllYourBase (02/10/2015) [-]
Well, it's not necessarily true, the 6-pdr guns that disabled it might not be able to reliably penetrate it, but they can still wreak havoc to the tank. The tank was captured in Tunisia, after it took a trio of shots, and was rendered combat-ineffective. One shot ricocheted off the bottom of the mantlet and down into the combat compartment, jamming the turret ring, wounding the driver and the front machine gunner. A second jammed the vertical fire control when it hit the lifting lug, and a third hit the loader's hatch, but didn't do much more than spray shrapnel all over the outside of the tank. The crew bailed after they lost most of their fire control, rather than try to flee with the tank and risk being destroyed.
User avatar
#152 - trostell (02/10/2015) [-]
There actually is an image floating around where you can see the ricochet scratches all over the front of the tank, and some of them line up so that it looks like a shell bounced off the gun, onto the hull, back into the gun, and then into the turret ring itself.
#153 - AllYourBase (02/10/2015) [-]
I'm not sure, but this might be what you're thinking of. The two in green were the shot that disabled the turret ring. The two in red are much more likely to be incidental shrapnel damage from the third shot.
User avatar
#154 - trostell (02/10/2015) [-]
It's still quite an impressive thing to look at, knowing the British were throwing small anti-aircraft shells at the scariest tank ever made, and somehow managed to render it combat ineffective. Then they went and stole it, because Commonwealth forces don't give a shit. The only A7V to survive World War 1 is currently in...Australia, I think? Or did they move it back to New Zealand?

Anyways, during WW1, a small squad of ANZACs saw the abandoned A7V in no-mans-land, so they snuck out at night, and dragged the disabled vehicle over their lines, just to go "Nyeh nyeh look what we took!"

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't most of the schools that compete in Sensha-do on giant, government-funded floating cities? I'd imagine that's the only realistic way that a school would be able to obtain tanks, as military surplus from world governments, which would also explain the fairly specific rules in place for vehicle qualification. (Plot Spoilers) Isn't the threat of losing their funding and being closed down the entire motivation for Oorari to win the tournament?

However, the Germans fighting the KV-2 were terrified of the massive box turret's signature silouhette because, when it was used, the Germans had nothing to fight it with, so it could sit there, menacingly, and shell away with impunity as the 5cm and low-velocity 7.5cm guns bounced harmlessly off of the KV-2's armor, which is thicker than you might think.
User avatar
#108 - AllYourBase (02/08/2015) [-]
Yeah, the KV-2 is scary, if you're using a low-velocity 5cm or 7.5cm gun, like what you'd find on Panzer IIIs and Panzer IVs before the F2, but both the Tiger I and II are equipped with high-velocity 8.8cm guns, the PaK 36 L/56 and the PaK 43 L/71 respectively, which are more than capable of actually punching straight through the turret of the KV-2 (which isn't exactly optimal, but it's better than a non-pen.
