So I wanted to try something new in my VK3001P. The default configuration is: Hardening, Modified configuration, Gun rammer.
So for this battle, I switched the rammer for a turbo to see what difference, if any it made. Apparently, imho, it did.
The old girl was able to move around like a heavy medium, and was pretty nimble on her tracks.
Add in a full BIA crew, with a driver that has; Clutch Braking, Off-road driving (@51) trained.

gg.  The VK seems to ram pretty good.

It was much better as a medium.

Wait, it was a medium at one point?

Yup. IMO when they changed it they needed to buff the armor. A slow, paper heavy is not a good combination.

Interesting. I tend to love it, and it's my goto when I need a pick me up. Doesn't always win, or have a good game, it have fun.

I loved it as a medium. Not a big fan as a heavy.

It was a medium prior to patch 1.9

 

Previously, it had +15 kph (+33%) forward and +8 kph (+67%) reverse speed and +26% horsepower/ton compared to the current values, but -350 (-32%) health. The p/w advantage was not due to higher horsepower, but due to weighing 10,000 kg less, despite having the same armor. The weapons were not changed.

The VK 30.01 (P) was classified as a medium tank not long ago; https://tanks.gg/v10800/tank/vk-3001-p  In patch 1.9 it was sadly reclassified as a heavy tank; https://tanks.gg/v10900/tank/vk-3001-p

 

It's speed both forward and reverse was drastically reduced, it's weight was increased by 10,000 kg., even though the armor thickness was not increased.  A very good medium tank was ruined.

 

The outstanding speed and maneuvering capabilities of the FCM 50 t heavy tank is what you're looking for  :)  Here is the link to the FCM 50 t in the Premium Shop.  This tank is rarely available, so if you'd like a one of a kind, fast, long view range, accurate, high penetration gun heavy tank, get it now while you can;  https://na.wargaming.net/shop/wot/tothestars/tothestars_special_offer_006/
