As part of the late-war German effort to standardize their tank production and maximize the production of cheaper, more reliable tanks the Entwicklung series was comprised of six different tank weight classes, from which several specialized variants were developed. Orders had also been given, from as early as 1942, to commence the development of the Geschützwagen (german for Artillery Wagon) series which converted existing chassis to mount greater artillery guns. These two projects combined at the end of 1943 to yield the Geschützwagen Type Entwicklung (GW Type E for short) artillery. Even though the GW Type E never got past the drawing board, it was nonetheless planned to have been based on the chassis of the Heavy Tank E-100. The design would have potentially been armed with a varying choice of high-caliber guns, ranging from the 70mm K 72 L/50 gun to the Skoda 305mm GrW L/16, and, like its earlier variants, would've had its armament mounted on the rail platform inside the hull, allowing it to be dismounted anytime. It would be operated by a crew of eight (Commander, Driver, Gunner, Radio operator and four Loaders) had it even seen service. The typical slopped armor layout from late-war German tanks was included, with a front-mounted transmission and reduced armor in comparison to the E-100. After World War 2, the idea of mounting high-caliber guns on tanks was abandoned, with 155mm howitzers being the usual caliber for Self-Propelled Artillery Guns.

It is generally agreed the GW E as it exists in the game is considered to be a fabrication based on liberties taken with various program proposals.

So I did a thing this time... The tank is open topped, I obviously can't leave it empty can I?



Of course this one also can take off her skirt as well (Send the children away when she does)


Something important enough to point out with paint: You will notice how the gun has an outer barrel, and an inner one that split somewhere above the 3rd roadwheel... I was not going to recreate this but I was trying to shorten the barrel and realized LDD has these 1 hole lift arms, which are basically half-tubes that I use, only problem (Or so I thought) was that they had a smaller diameter than the normal tubes... This allowed me to create the Inner and Outer barrels of the gun...

Model Features

- Rolling Track
- Elevating(40 degrees) main gun
- Interior: Elevating gun, Ammo Rack, 4 seats for the crew (2 on each side of the gun)
- Removable skirts
- Opening rear doors
- Bogie Roadwheel mounts for higher ground clearance and ease of repair
- Sturdy enough for some play

*Builders Notes*

- I finally figured out why LDD wouldn't let me elevate/depress my gun on the GW: When you use the connector plate that has 2 holes across and use 2 pins to secure each side, yet allow it to elevate/depress that is all fine and good, but if you actually want to elevate/depress the gun in LDD you have to remove a pin from on side so LDD doesn't confuse itself and refuse to elevate/depress a gun...

- Unlike the in World of Tanks version this only has 40 degrees of elevation versus 45...

* Real life dimensions:

* Hull *
- Length: 9 3/8 Inches
- Width: 4 1/3 Inches
- Height: 2 1/8 Inches

* Superstructure *
- Unknown




- The superstructure was 1 stud too far forward...
- The gun was mounted 1 plate too high...
- The second to last overhead "Crossbar" was mounted 1 plate too low..

LDD has been updated to reflect these fixes... Now the SPG better mimics the "Left side view" 3D Render which means it is in proportion...
