Ever wanted a rear turreted German heavy tank to practice for the Panzer VII branch? Fear not, as you will soon be able to get your hands on a brand new Tier VIII Premium heavy tank: VK 75.01 (K). A complete fake vehicle, created by the mad basement scientists of Wargaming, just to fit a branch that was missing a Premium vehicle with the same gameplay style.
Yes, gameplay-wise, the vehicle could almost be described as a lower Tier VK 45.02 (P) Ausf. B, featuring excellent 100 mm side armour, a strong front plate with 180 mm and a well-protected turret with 250 mm, the VK 75.01 (K) will be a hard nut to crack.
Gun-wise, the VK 75.01 (K) won’t bring any surprises, armed with a very German 128 mm gun, it will punish any enemy who dares to face him face-to-face with an average of 490 damage per shot, with 226 mm armour penetration standard shell. Like other vehicles of similar gameplay, the VK 75.01 (K) will be most effective at close range and some times at mid-range.
The usual slow German heavy tank with thick armour, so you need to choose carefully your flank to push or defend. The VK 75.01 (K) has a decent turning rate, so don’t get surprised if you are facing one and you can’t quickly circle around it.
Aside from that, the usual rolling out of cover, deal damage, roll back to cover will be applied to the VK 75.01 (K), all you need to do is: block damage and punish your enemies. Last but not least, the VK 75.01 (K) will have a crew of five: Commander, Gunner, Driver, Radio Operator, and a Loader.
Please remember, the vehicle is still in Supertest and any characteristics can be changed without any warning. Do you agree the vehicle will fit the purpose? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section.
