I ask this cause there is a sale and i can get it for cheaper than usual but i would have to use about 130k exp just to get to the tank then i would have to get tracks engine and turret and gun which would be another 120k Free exp just not sure if its worth it. But on the other hand i am having a hard grind in the VK4202a i cant do well barely do 1k damage a game in it always seeing tier 9 and 10 its sucking the life out of the grind for me and i dont want to continue it after a few game im like im done no more not anymore. I cant play it well. But on the other hand i am only 70ishk free exp k away from JPE100 so could free exp that and have another tier ten. But i Enjoy my JT alot have some great games in it so far. So grinding it out will be easy.  

 

I have about 330k free exp to use. but only about 6 mill credits so i can only choose one.

That would have been good to do when the Maus line was recently On Track and you could have got the tier IX for 30% off.

The VK45.02A is much more medium-like than heavy. Its fun to play in my opinion, and the grind isn't too terrible once you have the top engine. Just have to think and act like a medium driver, and stay in a pack. Works much better for me than the Tiger P ever did

 

I'd say get the JPE

I free-xp'd about 60k of the B, just to be done with the A. Just never liked it. With the B you finally feel like your driving a real HT. The 15% off ends today I think, and WG hasnt been real generous or frequent with the sales lately.  I'd consider it.

Some tanks won't work for you or your playstyle...still, as a general rule, grind tanks and free XP modules.

If you do XP the tank, get the modules, it's pretty bad stock

If you are talking about the VK 45.02B not the 42.02 whatever then yes exp through the 45.02A, what a POS.

 

I went straight from the Tiger P to the VK 45.02B and have no regrets.  The 45.02A is a terrible tank, under gunned wonder that it is.

 

I made the jump during the On Track to the Maus.  So it was cheaper to purchase.

 

Remember Rudedog's rule of tanking #1:  Never ever ever operate a tank that is not fully upgraded.............EVER.

I've never heard good things about the JPE100 and I know the VKB is ridiculously good frontally. If you feel compelled to free xp it, then go for it, but I'd rather save the xp for module unlocking as a rule of thumb.

Dont free xp the VK45.02B just dont go all out brawler on the VK45.02A

Use the precise gun and manage your HP u should be fine, this is a support heavy not first line but that doesnt mean staying with the TDs. Any free xp is better used to upgrade stock tanks

If the 45A isnt elited yet, use ur free exp for the modules. Then platoon grind the 45A with boosters on, save free experience to elite the 45B modules to help with the maus grind.

 

With boosters u can finish 45A in about 100 games if u average 1500 damage per game (which is only about 2 shots more per game than what u r doing now) and 800+ exp per game.

Still can't believe the 45.02 B has the same crappy dpm as the E75; I thought the reload was faster for the 128mm L/55, but nope.

the VKB is freaking epic if you free xp anything just do the modules..the tank is really fun to play great armor ( when played properly )..the grind is not bad just the VKA sucked overall

VK45A is playable as long as you use it as a flanking medium, because the armor sucks. Save your FreeX for modules.

So i did unlock the top gun on Vka and engine and it was a bit better and i did start to have more DPG to about 1200 to 1700 but its still not as fun as id like it to be. So i free exped to the the VKB and unlocked almost all the modules besides the top 10.5 gun. I do have the Big gun and turret unlocked and its fun and u can have some insane bounces if people dont spam prem ammo at u. I do find people hit the weak spot cupola on a snap shot like way pretty easy even when wiggling the turret. Also its smart to never go alone anywhere since u are too slow to defend yourself against a med unlike the T110E5 or T57 Heavy. I will keep the VKB sell the VKA thanks for all tips and replies.

I'd say you need the free exp for the turret and 128, as playing the vk B stock is one of the more awful things in the game.

I hated the A at first but once it is fully upgraded its a pretty decent tank.

Free xp the modules and grind the tank.

 

Like others have said, play it like a medium unless you are top tier, then play like a heavy.

 

The B is almost the same, pretty crappy stock but fully upgraded its pretty good.
