With the top engine Tanks.gg says its supposed to do 38kph but I haven't been able to get it to do more than 17 kph.  Its slower than my tortoise.

Simply put your engine isn't strong enough to bring you to top speed. Top speed is a speed cap. If you went downhill, the Jagdtiger can only travel a maximum of 38kph, no faster.

 

A worse culprit is the AMX 40.

You have to consider the power-to-weight (p/w) ratio. All that engine power is encumbered by the weight of the tank and terrain, something like a Jagdtiger would take forever to accelerate up to 20 kph on the flat. Unless you can get some downhill momentum and drive mostly straight, it's not going to get anywhere quick.

I found it surprisingly mobile considering its armor. A rather fun tank to play even in the current meta.

Sure, but slower than my Tortoise on the same map and terrain?
