Hello, as the topic header states...HOW IN THE BLOODY HELL DO YOU PEN THE 100.01P????? In my Defender I've tried shooting APCR, HE, and AP arounds at every point I think could be a weak spot and absolutely nothing pens the big dumb thing. It's like WG put it in the game just to troll people who don't have it or have no interest in going for it. Now that being said, I'm not talking about the back because obviously that's a obvious weak spot, I'm talking about when you can't get around behind it, where should I aim, because even on the lower front plate not even my APCR rounds went through it's armor.

Try get it to point its front at you while you sit at lower ground. It helps with the angle of the LFP.

At least you guys have the VK 100.01 P... :(

 

I'm at only 1.3 million credits, only half of what's needed to purchase it...

Its viewport (which is gigantic) can be penetrated by any gun with 235+ average penetration.

 

its lower glacis when facing you head-on is also penetrable very easily (190 effective armor).

 

The Turret cheeks are only 230mm effective.

 

The fat, flat section under the gun (the turret ring) is only 230mm effective.

 

Otherwise, you can flank this tank, as it has incredibly poor hull and turret traverse. Your best bet when fighting german superheavies is to circle around them as their gun cannot keep on sight to you due to its poor traverse speed.

 

A defender should be able to penetrate the lower glacis reliably if he is frontally engaging the VK-P. Otherwise, use your superior mobility to get to the tanks sides and rear to have easy shots. You should never try to brawl a superheavy frontally, as that is their strongest advantage.

Press that magic 2 button.

 

But seriously, most efficient ways are flanking, LFP, and flanking. Did I mention flanking? It's a big f**king tank that's really slow.

Killed 3 so far with my UDES alone.

IDK.. My STOCK VK100 seems to just attract enemy fire like bugs to a windshield.

I know I suck, but it has the worst WR of all my tanks and always gets T10 matches.

Trying to grind the 50,000XP for the 128 gun, but it is tedious and expensive.

Maybe it will perform better when the 98% crew gets to 100%.

 

Ps.. Aim for the Coppola.

Good Luck!

 

Cupola is 250+mm effective that is not a viable shot

 

To the op Lower plate with a fairly high penetration gun. If you arent sure load gold...if you still dont pen. Run. I'ts probably gonna eat you.

 

I've found that guns around 220ish pen pen the lower plate with few issues. You need about 280+mm heat to pen there tho, if you have heat for gold and its over 250mm of pen THEN shoot the cupola as its flat armor, or shoot his turret cheeks.

 

Be careful shooting him in the sides, aim HIGH on the hull, do not shoot low near the tracks as thats probably dam near 280+mm spaced armor, it will eat anything.

You don't
Lower plate, cheeks and cupola are penetrable by gold but barely at angle and 252 is not accurate enough for presize shots
If you can't outmaneuver it fall back and lure it in TD killing fields

I know. Seems like the only way to kill it is with gold ammo in the lower front plate.:justwait:

 

Basically, spam the hell out of it, gang up on it (for the love of God, don't go 1v1), and maybe it'll die. :confused:

 

It's like the Germans cracked the formula for Captain America's shield and made the damn tank out of it. :amazed:

 

I mean, look at the thing. It does look like it came out of a comic book.

Hahaha. I've racked up 8k blocked in tier 10 games, ISU doesn't phase me. 

Getting a hackuzation from a Jag E100 after one of the games was the best laugh I had in a while. 

Good times.

Imagine my horror when I encounter one of these in my Chaffee. It is nightmarish I literally can not penetrate the tank at the front, sides, or rear. :bush:

Use this site to find weakspots and good angles for attack on tanks you have a hard time with.

 

Here's the Mammut:

http://tanks.gg/tank...p/model?vm=live

 

If you hit sides or rear flat on or close to it you should be able to pen easily.  If he is angled it will be a lot harder.  Straight on in the front you need 190+ pen, if angled you need much more.  To hit that cupola on top you need about 220+ pen and to hit near the center of it.  

 

If you are a Tier 6 or 7 facing this thing you likely won't have the pen needed to attack frontally at all, you'll have to find a way to flank.

I resorted to shooting one in the cupola with HE in my IS-6. It only did 150-250 damage or so, but in combination with some other tanks that actually could pen the thing I eventually got the kill. I have switched the ammo load in my IS-6 from 18/10/2 AP/APCR/HE to 15/10/5 AP/APCR/HE thanks to all the new tier 8 and 9 armor.
