World of Tanks Supertest 9.21: VK 168.01 Mauerbrecher

Yet another surprise tank has emerged on Common Test 9.21, meaning its ready for final stages of Supertest and we might see this vehicle in the upcoming future. VK 168.01 received a special skin and a very unique description.

VK 168.01 Mauerbrecher

The tank was supposed to be used to defend Berlin in April-My 1945, but during transportation along the street (because of the large mass), the tank fell though the ground into a tunnel of the berlin underground. This subway line was not used in the postwar period and the tank was forgotten, In the summer of 1989, the tank was discovered during repair work in Western Berlin. At the same time, unrest was growing in East Germany. West Berliners, trying to help their eastern compatriots, restored the tank to running speed and applied “urban camouflage to it. Since this took place before the armed clashes, the tank was used as a ram when the wall was demolished in November 1989.

*The story in the description is fictitious.

    1. HI, legitimate tank historian here. This is 90% nonsense. If it’s German but isn’t documented by Tom Jentz, Spielberger or HIlary Doyle it doesn’t exist. This was probably some early sketches for the E series they plopped on a Maus.

    1. it is a blueprint, even in Warthunder video (Warthunder Shooting Range Episode 68) describe this prototype design by the Porsche company.

      ~I wasnt promoting warthunder but the information on the video really gud~

    1. Cupola -150mm, MG port – 140mm, LFP (slight slope) and sides (flat) 130mm…..if you need prem rounds at tier 8 to deal with that then you’d be doing something way WAAAAAAY wrong.

      I can’t wait for this to be released. XP pinata anyone?

      1. I don’t know what tier 8s you may be talkin about but considering that 220ish pen is the average for tier 8’s, especially when it comes to other heavies, most likely anything that isn’t a TD is gonna need a few prem rounds to deal with one of these angled correctly. The hatch is the best chance of going through with standard and even then you gotta hit it flat cause it is very rounded. The hatch pretty much is the only thing standard ammo can pen on this. Think about it realistically.

        1. I do think about it realistically hence my comment. I always keep in mind that I will never be fighting a particular tank in only one single orientation. There are times when that 130 mm wall (the dead flat sides) will be square on, there will be times the mg port will be the likely option and there’ll be times the the cupola is the only thing worth shooting at.
          Time and again I have read people on the forums bitch and moan that they can’t pen a certain tank from the front and therefore one absolutely MUST automatically use prem rounds without question. You can be sure of one thing with those people though – they are terminally blinkered and short-sighted.
          The front is by no means the be all and end all of a tank. Use tactics not brute force.

    1. Srsly man? I think it’s quite obvious the commander hatch you can see on the pictures gonna be one of them -.-

      1. You haven’t been around for a long time, have you ?
        Can’t you see it’s sarcasm ?
        Chrysler K, no frontal weakspots ?
        Defender, Tier 10 armour at Tier 8 ?
        Maus, frontal armour buff ? (completely unnecessary but hey)
        Type 5 heavy frontal “weakspots” ? (270 instead of 280, such weak much wow)

  1. This tank would be a good addition and on par with other t8 heavies (as it should be) if it didn’t have by the far the worst hp/ton in the game, with an ABYSMALLY

    1. low hp.ton of 4.64, nearly 3 hp/ton lower than even the TOG! Worse armor than the VK 100.01 P and MUCH slower? This tank seems unbearably slow, is all.

  2. Tbh the weak spots really does not fit the current meta. It Will face tier 9/10 almost every time and the only plus it has is the armor. Releasing it is at its current state would just make it like another kv5. A forgotten tank + slot rotting away in the garage. While having options as defender or even the Chrysler with less frontal weakspots.

  3. This tank is an absolut joke. You can pen it with 150mm pen gun, tier 6 meds can do this. Worst 8 tier premium tank ever? Hp/t 4 lol.

    1. Player moan WG doesn’t put frontal weak spots… WG does it, player moans it’s a piece of rushing because it has weakspots… lol

      1. This is simply bad balancing, with such a slow tank you shouldn’t have that kind of weakspots. Compare this tank to vk 100.01 you realize whats wrong with it.

  4. Im not sure if im nuts or whats happening here? Why would anyone want to buy tank that is worse in every scenario comparing to standard non-premium VK 100? I mean tank have 4.5 hp with maximum 20 km/h which will make it boring after just some games. What can make tanks like this intresting? Some real armor..but no this tank have multiple weakspots on its frontal armor. Middle of front armor/cancer kupola/Quite weak midd turet or down plate for insane amount of higher tiers. The tank have same matchmaking like maus and pleasee..comparing that 2 tanks :)) Even prefered mm wont save this tank in currrent state.

  5. All Tanks should have weakspots like that Machinegunport. And i remember a time where this was a case, where weakspot knowledge was very important and where you even as a toptier could not simply rush in a pile of lower tier tanks (cough defender etc. cough). Well that was also the time where standardammo and armor was not outclassed by premium ammunition and only very few used it.
