    As my son and I are both fans of "what if" wargaming, we've often discussed the idea of introducing prototype tanks into the game.  So, for your consideration, here is my first attempt.  Comments are welcomed.

    Hmmm, did it have heavier armour than a Tiger II (not Konigs Tiger I mean)? It looks that way from the 3 defense dice compared to a Tiger which has only 2. Black Prince had 152 mm, that's for sure, however, frontal armor of a Tiger II was 185 mm. So am I missing something here, I mean was there effectively more protection to the Black Prince, or was it planned in such a way that even if a penetration was made, it was still less probable to knock it out when compared to a Tiger II?
