IT is for balance, Sure give the gun those stats then up the tier of the Tank to 9.

Balance, schmalance. 

 

The US T-34  Tier 8 has a Tier 9 120mm gun and it has better penetration with similar damage.  The VK75.01 gun should have nearly identical penetration stats.

 

I say WG dropped the ball on this.

Lowe is still far better. This VK has too many weakspots. The paper lower plate, the giant cupla, the overmatchable turret roof, the shot trap on the bottom slanted parts of the turret..., and it gives up too much for this hole ridded armor. Looking forward to the E75 TS though, now that looks like a good german heavy tank.

I can at least confirm its good at bullying lower tiers.

i think its going to be like most Tier VIII tanks, pretty great in FL but not so hot in reg battles. For instance my JPII is fantastic in FL but in a reg match not so much. i bought it last night with a coupon for $33, i had fun in it

Doesn't anyone at WG understand antitank guns and armor?  They certainly don't understand German guns or effective armor thickness.  They put a 128 mm KwK 44 L61 on this, which should have better PEN numbers than the 44 L55 on the Ferdinand or the 43 L55 on the Skorp G.  Instead, the numbers are barely better than the 88mm on the Tiger II.

 

In real life the, KwK 44 series was renowned for it's penetration especially with discarding sabot rounds, called APCR, by WG.  The 128 KwK 44 could pen over 300 mm angled at 30 deg at 1000m.  Certainly not the dismal 263mm PEN they gave that ammo on the VK 75.01 K.

 

Come on WG.  Don't any of you pay attention to our comments here?  Are we just writing to see ourselves talk?

Facing them so far they are easy pens on the cupola and lower plate vs the normal players but if its driven by a gud then its hard to root out of a good side scrape with turret wiggle. Sucks to get shot by them but at least it has a stupidly long reload. I'll stick with my chrysler k if I want a premium rear turret side scraper but also with a strong lower plate and near impenetrable turret. The ap pen is a bit low but the gun handling and dpm are great and makes hitting weak spots easy and the apcr is good enough for all but the thickest super heavies and even then you can pen the weak spots fairly often.

How in the world did you get a lower tier game in that tank?  I am only seeing tier 8 and higher.

I like clicking them with sky cancer and farming them with 9s and 10s is a breeze, the video that Claus did is pretty much the normal player experience for average and lower players with exceptions. The sLowe is always the default choice and wish battlecruiser still made meme videos playing it.

Experience might vary from one person to another, but so far:

VK > Lowe at bullying lower tiers

Lowe > VK when on -1/-2 tier matches (even spamming APCR makes fighting some tanks pretty iffy when on the VK)

The 252, along with the KV2 are the best snipers in the game.....every time I use the EBR in Frontline....the 252......SNAP!!!!...hits me while I dodge at 70 km/hr....no aim, while on the move....SNAP!!!!.......it supposed to have bad ....SNAP!!!!!.....gun, with bad accuracy and SNAP!!!! aim time, but it always SNAP!!!

The fact that WoT can even allow the KV2 to be used as a sniper is ridiculous, but hey its a Russian tank and in WoT Russian tanks can do every thing well.
