High-tier German heavy tank lines changed in a big way recently in Update 9.17.1. Three new heavy tanks were added to the bunch, and others moved around the tech tree. For German week, all tier VI-VII German vehicles are on discount, but today we’ll focus more on those heavy tanks.
Top of the Heavy Tank Line (Tiers VIII-X)
If you’re interested in getting to a tier X German heavy tank, there are quite a few of them compared to other nations. Since 9.17.1, you have a choice of three tier X heavy tanks: the new Pz. VII, Maus and E 100. Each of them has their strengths, so it’s up to you where you want to go.
Climbing at Tier VII
Get to both the Pz. VII and Maus through the tier VII Tiger (P) (currently on sale!). From there, tier VIII branches off towards the Pz. VII and Maus.
The Tiger (P) is often played as a sniper to take advantage of its good accuracy and penetration. But its great frontal armor and high hit points also allow it to be on the front lines, if needed. Keep in mind that its armor is super thick, but not in terms of slopes. So, be sure to angle your hull effectively to ensure experienced enemies can’t find a way through.
You actually have two different ways to get to the E 100. Either continuing up the heavy tank line, or switching from the medium tank line with the Panther.
