World of Tanks Supertest: Aufklärungspanzer V Details

Aufklärungspanzer V ‘Rotfuchs is making a return as a Tier VIII Premium Light Tank. But the strangest thing about its the fact that it only has one type of shell: APRC. I’m not sure if this is intentional, or just because the vehicle is not complete yet. More details once they are known.

  1. Erm, I am not so sure how I feel about adding this tank back to the game as a Tier VIII Light Tank. I’m my opinion, I really think it should be a medium tank. First of all, it has some actual armor, 85mm at the front is a lot for a light tank. Secondly, the tank is much to large. It is even bigger than some of the Tier VIII mediums which I find surprising. Thirdly, the concealment is relatively low for a light tank, only 16.9%? I get the tank is large, but still. Fourthly, the weight is too much, this can ram better than quite a lot of Tier VIII Mediums and some Heavies like the Emil. This it self should make wargaming realize this is not suited to be a light tank. Finally, this gun is great, but the alpha damage is terrible. It is the lowest alpha damage at tier 8.

    While I am somewhat glad Wargaming have balanced out his tank and are planning to add it back to the game, it still needs some works which I am confident they will do during super test and onwards to come.

    1. It’s not like this isn’t same tank,in regards to armor and weight,as it was before it was removed,
      This is why people liked this tank,because it’s very good at wrecking other ligh tanks by ramming them,and even heavy tanks in some occasions(seen one ramkilling an IS-3 with quite a bit of HP and surviving).
      The only worry I have about this is the reload of the gun,given its low alpha,it should be about .5-1 sec faster tbh.

    2. The Russian lights with 90mm front armour on the lttb, 80mm on the t54 lt and 180 on it’s turret say otherwise.

      Class of tank in this game is largely irrelevant. What matters is it’s role on the battlefield. For example the Maus 113 and 50b are all tier 10 heavies. Yet no one would say they are alike.

      1. Ya, but those russian tanks are much lighter than this one. This tank is 41 Tons, the LTTB is 22 tons, even the T-54 Lightweight is only 34 Tons.

  2. This must be a joke right.Its got the same pen and damage as the tier 5 VK3001H Waffe gun and they expect it to compete in tier 8.I prefer the old Aufklaringspanzer as it was.Ive taken out tier 7 Japanese heavy’s with my VK3001H and I love that tank due to its awesome gun and sniping capability.But put this tank against the latest op premium tanks and it fails miserably especially against the Defender.Id rather keep my VK3001H with 2 marks on the barrel than buy this crap and Im a german tank lover.If they put a better gun on it I might consider it

    1. It is the same as it was only better. A lot better actually. Only thing which is worse that it has 10 meters less viewrange than it had after the buffs. I believe you are ignoring that old Aufklärungpanzer Panther had tier 8 mm.

    2. What are you saying? It has 221 mm of pen, pretty good for a light, a heavy like the IS-3 has 226 mm of pen and no one says the IS-3 is underpowered, even the most OP tank a tier 8, the Patriot, has like 230, not much difference. Also, this is still super test, so it can change. 😉

  3. well I have kept the HWK, and already have the worst tierX LT, so I might get this one. It might also be good in CW, having populated crew means more skills to be enabled. ^^
