The E-series designs were simpler, cheaper to produce and more efficient than their predecessors, however their design involved only modest improvements in armor and firepower over the designs they were intended to replace, such as the Hetzer, Panther G or Tiger II, and would represent the final standardization of German armored vehicle design where the American M26 Pershing, the British Centurion Mk 3 and Soviet T-44 tanks, which would have been the Entwicklung series" contemporaries and likely opponents.
