  1. Wait, this thing didnt have the E100 150mm ?

  2. Brumbarr says:

    is this the CW one or tech tree one?

  3. x says:

    Both is fully fake cancer, both should be removed…

  4. Uuuhhh says:

    A 128mm with only 3.75 rate of fire doesn’t seem right…

  5. thebugmonster says:

    arty is gonna love this things engine deck

  6. Enigmaticmuffin says:

    This thing is gonna be a sidescraping demon

      It’s not. The weakspot under the turret is an easy pen for even tier 8s. All it needs is a vaguely competent player up against it.

    • wremisekrummels says:

      nope… i have the real vk k and i can say it isnt… look at that turrent ring. everyone will shoot there then you are angleing even a lttle bit and cause WG hates us guess what is there? haha, of course the ammo rack!!
      so you will have a heavy, and then you try to sidescrape, everyone will shoot in your ammo rack! deal with it!

    560dmg on the 128mm gun with a 16sec reload? What the fuck? Shouldnt it be 490 dmg same as the other 12.8cm guns?

    • Anonymous says:

      Jagtigers top 128mm has 560 alpha

    • viper_invader_1 says:

      This is the Jagdtiger’s 128, not the E75/VK/Maus 128

      • DeadArashi says:

        That’s a TD gun with 276mm of penetration. This is a HT with 258mm of pen… so why not make the damage that of the other HTs?

        And I have issues with the 12.8cm TD guns having 560dmg while the 130mm on the Obj 263 has 550 dmg… larger caliber gun with less damage… logic out of 10

    • Similar gun to the tier 9 german td’s of 560 alpha with a compromise penetration with the traditional 128. Those who play the jagtiger and wt pz iv will be familiar with the alpha

      • DeadArashi says:

        Yer but normally they keep TD and HT versions of gun stats completely seperate

      • True, especially at higher tiers for +750 alpha guns (E100/VK exception). Medium td’s like the conway, su-122-54, and foch each run a format of their guns on their respective nation’s tier X heavies. They might be shuffling their rules to get more content out or to better frame the VK as a middle man between the E100 and Maus rather than a copy of one or the other. Not sure if it was the best move but it isn’t the first time.

    This shouldn’t happen. There are a lot of people that worked hard to get a unique tank, just to see it introduced as a tech tree tank. Go on wg, fuck with those who play the most. (btw, no I do not own this tank)

  9. Zorin234 says:

    Mmm seems like it’s dpm and accuracy could be a bit better

  10. This post is wrong .. IT has the 15cm GUN… Also it has received a good armour buff over the original CW tank.. But still there is only one tank. This is still a meah.. tank.. Not sure it will be better than the e-100.. about the same i guess.

  11. Cygnus610 says:

    from the post about this on the NA server:

    “IMPORTANT: Following recent feedback about adding a new tier X heavy to the German Tech Tree, similar to the VK 72.01 (K), we decided to keep this Global Map trophy as a unique reward to Clan players. Instead, the Tech Tree will receive a completely new vehicle: the Pz.Kpfw VII. Unlike the VK 72.01 (K), it will mount a 12.8cm Kw. K. 46 L/61 gun, which provides a quite different play style.

    The 72.01 (K) gets a number of improvements including easier gun handling, an increased penetration value for the Pzgr. 42 shell (the 15cm Kw. K. L/38 gun), and a larger ammo load of 35 rounds. In addition, both the maximum forward speed of the VK 72.01(K) and the Pz.Kpfw VII will be set at 33 km/h, plus better hull armor.”

    • Sounds fair, most other clan war tanks are near copies of existing tanks like the obj 907, WZ 121B and whatever the american medium is are almost exact copies from the exterior. Internally from alpha to gun handling or armor there are notable differences.

  12. SpeedyCraft51 says:

    Well thats a german Type4.
    And 16s reload FFS WG what are you trying to make with this tank if you cant add it because of like 5k players out of multiple millions then just say out loud that you dont wanna add it at all and dont do it.

    • Anonymous says:

      WG has to add some tank into the spot previously occupied by the Maus and this is not the final version so judging it now

    • Except the type 4 has a shit turret and can’t sidescrape anywhere close as good as the vk. Type 4 will also have a derp gun that will have to reload for 20 seconds with 75mm of pen. Speedy, you’re not making any sense here, it’s supposed to be a tank inbetween the styles of the Maus and E100. the 560 alpha and 16 sec reload sit reasonably in between 490 and 750 alpha with 14.3 and 19 sec reload respectively to the Maus and E100… What’s your problem?

  13. Albedo's Ahoge says:

    Nice… but would have preferred the 15cm gun.

    • Teknokraatti says:

      I think that the situation is fair. The 128 L/61 is a good gun and the CW guys get to keep a fairly unique and useful tank. You’ve still got the E-100 available as the high-alpha heavy without any special requirements, and it’s a good tank as well.

    DecoNoir, deflection works? Really? 🙂

    720m view range? That’s insane.
