The second question is off and/or misleading; the VK3001 (P) is the fastest tier VI German medium at 60km/h while the VK3001(H) is the most agile with a faster traverse of 38 deg/s. And it is based on the Henschel hull. So neighter of them is the correct answer..

Hi freggelz,

Thanks for the post.
This is not misleading at all! The VK3001 (P) tank doesn't have much in common with The VK 3001 (H) - it is not as fast and agile as (P)
and additionally it is not based on the Henschel hull

Yes it is, check your own wiki.

The VK3001 (P) has a top speed of 60km/h whereas the VK3001 (H) has a top speed of 55km/h. Now according to my pre-school lessons 55km/h is slower then 60km/h. Hence the VK3001 (P) is the fastest.

The VK3001 (H) has a traverse of 38 deg/s whereas the VK3001 (P) has a traverse of 28 deg/s. Hence, the VK3001 (H) has the fastest traverse.

The VK3001 (H) is based on the Henschel hull.

How can the VK3001 (H) be the fastest when it has a lower top speed?!? It cannot, but that was one of the criteria in the question, which is the fastest and the most agile and is based on the Henschel hull?

So if I count the rights and wrongs the VK3001 (H) gets 2 right out of 3 and the VK3001 (P) gets 1 right out of 3. That makes the VK3001 (H) the one with the most rights, but almost right (by not getting 3 right) is still wrong!

Just because it has the higher topseepd doesn't mean it's the fastest [under normal circumstances].
The part about the "fastest" might have been a bit misleading - but the "based on the henschel hull" made it pretty clear which answer the wanted to hear. Plus, in the description of the VK3001(H)  in the wiki it says: "This tank is the fastest and most agile of the three German tier 6 mediums..." which should've cleared out any last doubts about the correct answer.

Throki, to be honest.. saying 'fastest' is not based on speed than what is. Thats kinda weird.. fastest always means speed.

"but the "based on the henschel hull" made it pretty clear which answer the wanted to hear." - Why? They both have that hull? So thats not helping

Anyways, my awnser was VK3001(H).. I guess we have to let WG sort this out :)

It's not going to be the right answer just because you say it is. If you let the part about it being the fastest out of the question you'd have had a point. But now it's wrong all around. Your argument about the Wiki saying "it's the fastest etc." doesn't make it right. It only says "the Wiki is wrong". Furthermore, your arguments only lead to 1 answer: there is no right answer to the question. Only one that is slightly less wrong.

Slightly less wrong is still wrong, no matter how many times you say it's right.

Oh, and adding your post, you would have been right when the top speeds of the (P) and the (H) were the same. But they are not, not even close.

This vehicle is the fastest and most agile of the three German tier 6 mediums and its prototype was based on the Henschel hull

Seriously? Why don't you ask one of the russian mediums? :Smile_trollface-3:  Lol, everybody could answer this question immediately...

Ok, one more thing:

Quote

This American WW2 tank destroyer was the fastest tracked armored fighting machine during the war with a top speed up to 60 mph

Answer:

Quote

The 76 mm Gun Motor Carriage (GMC) M18; M18 Hellcat

Then why is this on YOUR OFFICIAL wiki?

Quote

However historically it could go as fast as 92 kph,

It's almost right. 60mp/h is approximately 96km/h. And, very confusing, at the historical info part of the article it states 60mp/h at the top, but further down it states that "Team Desobry's high speed highway journey to reach the blocking position is one of the few documented cases wherein the legendary top speed of the M18 Hellcat (55 miles per hour (89 km/h)". But that can be their average speed from A to B. Still, it's very confusing and the question is, what or who is right.

Another source in the internet states that the topspeed is 55mp/h (http://www.militaryf...sp?armor_id=250).


They should stick with more solid questions such as stock reload speeds and alike.
