Same as any german superheavy.  LFP, flank it, or press 2.  Or 3 if Japanese.

Just faced this tank yesterday night in Redshire and killed it so leaving a response. I roll in O Ho and only shoot HEs so my response might not be relevant to everyone. I was almost face hugging him with a poor AT7 stuck in between me and him. I shot VK close range in the cupola and took off app 500 HP. I will be honest though my other shots didn't connect as I wanted but they still did on average 250 to 300 dmg. In all I shot him 4 times. There was help from one other tank not sure which one. Not the AT though as his shells were bouncing and VK made a mince meat out of him.

Being in a OHo, shooting at cupolas when close range comes naturally to me with good success often. 

On a side note, VK 100 is a beast and I am always fascinated by it. Too bad I went down the Tiger line.

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.

Did you try shooting the massive cupola that makes the Liberte's look normal? Or the lower plate? Or the turret cheeks? Because it's basically a guaranteed pen on all those spots...

My ISU would like a word with you sir.

 

lol. I got a kick out of this. In the same redshire battle I described above, after my sad demise, I followed a friendly VK. He had 75% health and he still got one shotted by an ISU. Got ammo racked. We won the game with difficulty. 

 

ISU is a good tank. I loved playing with it. But once u start taking fire, u r pretty much done.

Play Tier 9 or 10 tanks. Any tanks of those tiers can pen this tank from any angle with ease. Speaking from experience as I just got this tank and it is seeing nothing but tier 9 and 10 gameplay. Rare is the tier 8 game. Very, very, very rare.

Either flank it or kill all its friends then deal with it, super heavies are broken right now and a lot of the time I just ignore them and leave them there

Almost all heavy or any tanks that nothing pens . HE to the lower glacis , view ports , copulas . The old E100 and Maus fire HE under them and the blast came up through the floor . But that's the way it used to be and I'm unsure if they have changed any of the week spots . Some of them shoot next to the final drive and hull was a week point on many German tanks . American Tanks the Final drive is on the rear of the tank . Good luck .

Here's a 3D model you can rotate to any angle you want and see how to pen it from different positions.  It's not that hard.  Commander's hatch, turret "cheeks", and lower front plate are it if you are shooting at this guy frontally (and even then they are almost a 50/50 pen or bounce).  But he is slow and turns slowly, so if you can get around to his side or rear, then he is toast.

Just load gold when you see it and be done with it...   

I drive the defender too, and I always have a problem penning the lower plate if not using gold..  People cry about people using gold but drive all SUPER HEAVY"S... 

And some times I got gold loaded about to fight a super heavy and a dang Skorpion G or Light pops out of no where so it catches what is loaded..  Not that i needed it, they just wanted it more than the other tank.

Top hatch in the VK if they don' know what they are doing and they stay still. Best to try to flank and not bounce a million shots from the front. I once went afk at the start of a round to let me great dane out. Came back and had 6800 blocked damage and was still alive.

Press 2 or cupola snipe. Welcome to WoT 2017 where there are no frontal weak points anymore.

This made me laugh more than it should have. I am a terrible person though....

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.

 

I solved the weak gun problem on the IS-6 by trading it for a Lowe.
