The Elefant in War Thunder is finally here. This German Heavy Tank Destroyer has been long awaited to War Thunder and for what is an up armoured Ferdinand it’s quite the beast!
The Elefant is available as the top tier reward for the latest War Thunder Battle Pass Armored Elephant but at Battle Rating 6.7 it’s a pretty difficult tank to play.
The Elefant will face ATGM’s, HEAT-FS and of course APDS and APFSDS from vehicles as low as 4.7 all the way up to 7.7 making it pretty weak to most opponents. However, on the flip side it can be almost impenetrable to vehicles whose armament is limited to APHE and some solid shot.
Overall, this is a pretty pathetic vehicle for Battle Rating 6.7 and on top of this it’s extremely slow too. The Elefant should excel at long range due to its 200mm of frontal armour but it’s often late to the battle meaning enemies are already flanking. On top of that, it’s slow to react due to its case mate design meaning its a sitting duck for ATGM vehicles and laser range finders with APDS and HEAT-FS.
It’s my belief this vehicle is over-br’d and would be much more suited to 6.3!
Today, I play 5 games in total to see how I can do. It was a struggle!
