Supertest: VK 75.01 (K) – German Tier VIII Premium

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.

  1. I kinda like it, but im not so sure about the 490 alpha damage on a tier 8 heavy. The tiger 2 wont enjoy this… as long as wg make this appropriate and not just a defender 2.0, give the tank weak spots, and not a VK 100.01 P cupola weakspot, more like a mauerbrecher.

    1. You have to know that the German tanks will be change next patch so I think the tiger 2 gets a massive patch so it can compete with this new tank but I hope like you that it has the same weakspots like the tier 9

  2. A fake tank created to be the crew trainer for the Pz.Kpfw. VII line…which is also a fake tank.

    1. Nope not fake here’s The reason. why I this is not fake is because this is most likely based off of the rear turreted Löwe project, and there was a real proposal to put the vk100.01P Turret on it’s hull (not specified if rear or front turreted) for it to be able to mount a bigger gun ando have more armor. Also the Pz. VII is NOT fake but incorrectly named. What it should be named is either the VK72.01K (which I know is another tank but they’re literally the same thing with only different guns) or VK70.01K. Here’s a link about their history.
      http://tankarchives.blogspot.com/2017/10/pzkpfw-lowe-german-lion.html (the info is near the end of the article)
      (Also I do realize the hull is still incorrect though on the VK75.01K)

  3. Alpha too high. Even 440 is too much but for 128mm on tier 8 heavy is okay.
    ALPHA OF 440 IS ENOUGH, WG, YOU DUMB IDIOTS!

    1. The gun is of longer calibers, so thats why its 490 instead of 440… But yeah, maybe have 440 with a smaller reload time would be better.

  4. Well, whether do you like it or not, this tank is 100% coming to the stores, since this tank represents the Pz VII tree of rear turreted tanks of germany, and they needed this to represent the trees in their Monthly Top of the tree events, as they will let ppl play this as a retal in the missions. so maybe if everyone hates it, the best we could do is that this tank will be slightly rebalenced but WG will 100% release it sooner or later.

    1. Nop, not even close. Its inspired by it, but thats it. WG used other designs to create this one themselves.

  5. Overall it SEEMS quite juicy… i like the VKB … and i would have got Mauer if it wasn’t a laughingstock.
    Ugh, reminds me… i really need to get rid of Chrysler K …… no idea what i was thinking getting it<.<

    That’s how you know if a tank is decent: if you still see one a week after release…

    1. HA … nach Berlin and SCHNAPS (alcohol) … yeah ok thats a nice touch.
