Supertest: VK 65.01 (H) Tier V German Heavy Tank

2 min read

The VK 65.01 (H) is not a new vehicle, but you might never heard of it before. The German Tier V Premium heavy tank first went to test back in April, 2016, was changed again in September 2016 and was never released.

The vehicle received a few changes with the new Supertest iteration and is being prepared for release, most likely a reward tank of some sort. The tank had a problem in the first iterations of Supertest: it was very slow! The ground resistances were also very poor, making it a frustrating vehicle to play. Here’s the list of changes compared to the last iteration:

  • Dispersion tank traverse changed from 0.23 (7.20) to 0.23 (8.40)
  • Rate of Fire changed from 14.22 to 16.91
  • Reload Time changed from 4.22 to 3.55
  • Average Damage per Minute changed from 1,565 to 1,860
  • AP Shell velocity changed from 685 to 800
  • APCR Shell velocity changed from 850 to 900
  • HE Shell velocity changed from 685 to 800
  • Engine Power changed from 600 to 900
  • Specific Power changed from 9.23 to 13.85
  • Traverse Speed changed from 31.29 to 36.51

All characteristics are with a crew trained to 100% and subject to change before the final release.

  1. Well actually…
    It had received some of the buffs mentioned back in 1.9.0 and 1.13.0.
    The first buffed the shells and hitpoints due to global lowtier rebalancing, the latter one gave it more engine power.
    Haven’t checked when the shell velocity was changed, so it might’ve been with one of those two updates as well.

    I wonder what their plans for the vehicle are, though, considering the past… six years of not being released.

  2. This is one of those tanks I would like to see in game for it’s historical relevance.

  3. Makes more sense to make a wirbelwind in tier 3 or 4
