WG, when are you going to try to sell me back the VK28.01 with the 105mm?

 

Update:

More news on the Auf. Panzer V!

Today the Supertest gets a version with 105-mm gun. We’d like to test the alternative variant of gameplay similar to popular VK 28.01 – big mobile Light tank with excellent gun designed for farming. 
In terms of the Super test there will be two guns available for mounting:  105-mm and previously tested 75-mm, we will test both and see which makes a better fit for the vehicle.

Fans of the tank would want it with 75mm not the 105mm that slowed your tank down...

maybe they'll do what they are doing with the Kanonenjagdpanzer..

sell two different versions with a different gun. (90mm and 105mm in that case)

The problem is it isn't planned to be sold...

That's some pretty high HE penetration values for a 105mm howitzer...

Dez said in a video that it will probably be a reward tank for new personal missions

 

I would love to see this... A new set of personal missions would be awesome.

Meanwhile.... our lovely VK28.01's are STILL missing their 105 derps. :sceptic:

The version with the 105mm is interesting. This would actually be a tier 8 light tank with a respectable level of firepower. But that's what causes a lot of mixed feelings- because it reminds us that most other tier 8 light tanks (and tier 8 mediums for that matter) have completely laughable firepower. For that matter many light tanks in other tiers are in the same boat. They don't have any notable view range advantage for their respective tiers and their guns are a complete disgrace as well. And it should be said that in comparison to their un-nerfed premium counterparts, the status quo for light tanks is especially questionable. Does that make something like a Type 64 or a M41-90 OP? Not at all. It just means their tech tree counterparts were over-nerfed. 

 

So in closing- yes, the 105mm version of the AufkPz would be viable and respectable. Just don't forget the plight of the non-premium light tanks.

The tank is NOT meant to be Bought.. its a reward tank prem.. if you had 1 battle in the tier 7 version Awful panther you get it for free Again its NOT meant for the shop...

''The characteristics of the tank were updated. Apparently it is not intended to appear in the Premium Shop.''

lmbo.. are you actually telling an administrator what their plans could be for this tank?

no one on WG has EVER confirmed that.. not once. You have no idea if that tank is going to be a reward/mission tank or a premium tank you buy.

What you just posted is a third party source and everything from them should be taken with a grain of salt.

WG took it away, now pulling it back as a premium. I say everyone who owned one should get it free.

Just another bait and switch like they did with the Lorraine 40T.I agree, if you had it before you should get it back for free.

Hey Tankers,

The fan favorite German light is back, and with some extensive changes.  This version is uptiered and should play more like a light tank, and less like a second-line support.  Let us know what you think!

 

I had this tank with 100% multi skill crew and WG took it away. I suffered throught the nerfs to the konisch and the endless frag comments about why a "scout isnt at the front" and still I played and like it. In its place I got the SPI C and one of my crew got sent to the useless Leopard 1. Now you want me to buy it? Is that the deal? Or is it going to be some fancy reward tank that I can only get if I take a vacation from work and play in some clan battles for a couple weeks? Or what? Honestly this whole deal stinks. If you yank a tank from people at least keep it gone - this is just jerky. How about you give me back what I had, with my same crew I had and take that SPI C away. I will gladly trade that.
