Ya.. if anyone has noticed Relic is the all powerful wizard of history and physics which is a problem because people like me want realism AND balance which may not be as "cool" as Relics way about it and I still do not get why they did not just use a goddamn Bergepanther there were hundreds of those and they could actually do recoveries unlike the weak arm of the Bergetiger.

I HATE that thing haha Pz IV's teamed up with a couple of those and they can take out all of my defensesbetween the constant repairing, Tiger chassis and MG's hah so I think Bergepanther would not be as OP

Agreed with Soldat.  Considering what else has been done in Company of Heroes already, a railway gun is not out of the question. Nor any of the other ideas you refer to as stupid.

railway gun was a good idea for a wehrmacht sub-doctrine in normandie 44 mod. Just a call in artillery strike from off map. shoots slowly but very powerful. DonĀ“t know if there where any railway guns at eastern front except Dora...

not as much as gustav and maus, sturm tiger would make sense there was an ok amount of them but there was only 80 or so jagdtigers and only half made it to combat in the last few months

Actually Dogs have been in large use since WW1, namely as Early Detection and Guard Duty. Saying they where not widely used is wrong, they where rarely used for combat operations IE:  The Russian Tank Hounds, which was a complete failure because the Dogs went for the russian tanks and not the german ones because that is what they trained on :?

they were reffering to the exploding bomb dogs which are sick and stupid.

Apart from your first point the others won't need to be added because they exist on their own level of stupidity that they don't require any mentioning.

I think "rare" should be classified along the lines of one existed for every division, with 20 or so the Sturmtiger etc. counts but not things such as the Maus.

You call 18 an "ok" amount, there were more K5 railway guns than these things, and the Sturmtiger was mainly used in the west so this is a far more stupid idea than an off-map railway gun call-in.

in relics view yes but sturmtigers were around for much longer than a few months but that is not the point it is a comparison.
