By November 1941, German engineers had already developed a number of high-profile tanks, such as the Tiger I. But they needed something a little… heavier. Some time and a few light bulb moments later, the mighty
was put to paper. Weighing in at 70 tons, it would have been the biggest German tank at the time by far. However, interest dwindled, and heads and preferences turned shortly thereafter towards the even larger Maus.
Nevertheless, the Löwe smashed its way into the virtual world. Its armor and sheer might have made it a player favorite and a formidable opponent over the past 10 years. Ideal for side-scraping and hull-down positions, the Löwe's strong side armor and rounded turretwill shrug off brutal attacks and frustrate most enemies it comes face-to-face with. On the offensive, the 105 mm gun boasts excellent accuracy, shell velocity, and penetration that will make short work of dawdling enemies and help you strike through well-defended lines.
