VK 168.01 (P) – German Premium Heavy Tank – Initial Stats & Pictures

Hello everyone,

Today Supertest will receive a new German Premium Heavy Tank to test, VK 168.01 (P). This vehicle will be available (for testing) in two versions:

  • With a 12,8cm gun – this version will have a better aiming time and mobility;
  • With a 15,0 cm gun – this version will have a high alpha damage, but less accuracy and mobility.

Based on the test results, Wargaming will decide which version will make it to the Live Server.

    1. It takes almost as much as an arty to reload with that gun. Plus the fv at tier 10 one shots most tier 8’s why not a tier 8 against tier 6’s. Plus it will probably have low shell count. This thing isn’t even out yet and people are bitching.

      1. Why not? Because we don’t need more high alpha shit in the game, we already have enough of it.

      2. The FV at least costs an arm and both legs to load a shell, while this VK is a premium tank, and as such the shells are not expensive af.

      3. It’s a German superheavy. If the other ones are anything to go by, this thing carries more ammo than it can fire during the match even if it fired literally nonstop from start to finish.

        Still, 750 alpha is kind of silly at T8. That gun has reasonable penetration and can basically 2-shot same tier heavies. I hope you realise why that is not a good thing.

        There are only 2 contenders at T8 in terms of alpha if this thing ends up with a 150mm gun: ISU-152 and RHM. I won’t include arties or O-Ho, because they don’t have excellent penetration and rely on splashing more than direct penetrations.

        I’d say that they’d do well to release the 128mm version as a premium and utilise another 150mm-wielding German superheavy as a T9 or T10 PM reward.
