The Vk7201 looks sexy to me  :Smile_veryhappy:  Kinda in a same way the VK36 does...

I'd purchase the sh*t out of that tank.

they're made up, modded....you won't find them in game or in future patches

Maybe you are right. But the comment to these pictures was that these are supertest leaks.

I was just wondering if anyone know any more about these, if they are going to get in the game in a future update.

I can see M60 to be the new tier10 med for USA and move down all the line by 1 tier.

For this Löwe I don't know. Where would it fit? Tier8 but from which tree branch?

The VK7201 must be one of the ugliest tanks ever made.

They aren't made up. I posted those pics on my blog, it's screenies from supertest. They are being tested right now.

actually this pics really look faked as their glare and and stuff is identical even though it looks like photographed from a screen... wonder how you can make this identical
despite that: I already have such a M60 like tank in my garage.. in fact it is the m48 with a mod from drongo lab

My three problem with the VK2701 concept:

- It's a fake. There was never such a design. The most info you can dig out on the Lowe lies in Doyle's Panzer Tracts (specifically "Paper panzers" part), which I now have (courtesy of a friend). Basically, there were two Lowe concepts: the "heavy" Lowe and the "light" Lowe - the light one being lighter (obviously) and having the turret in the back (the model used for VK7201). The current ingame T8 Lowe is a fake too, being a mashup of light/heavy characteristics, so that's not realistic either (balance, lol) - but this is a complete fabrication, there was never (unless SerB's court tank faker expert Pasholok made up discovered new evidence of its existence) a light tank model with the properties of the heavy Lowe. But wait, there's more. There was one more Lowe project, created on Hitler's demand (Hitler always loved to stick his ugly mug into tank projects, unfortunately for Germany and fortunately for everyone else), that was even heavier and had a big 150mm gun. Apparently, they used the properties of this "superheavy" Lowe to make this fake tank based on the model of the "light" Lowe. But who cares about realism, right?

- It's crap. Just look at it. The turret-in-the-back concept - there is a REASON the development didn't move this direction. The gun depression will be horrible, from the screenies it's supertested with the E-100 150mm (because that works SO well on the E-100) and according to today's supertester memo, they are focusing their test on the gold shells specifically. Now, I don't know how these tests work usually, but the LAST thing this game needs is a big, ugly box with turret in the back, relying on heavy armor (in the world of lolgoldshells, kinda... meh), probably slow as hell. Ugly too.

- WG is pissing on our heads - you know, lately I've been more and more annoyed. SerB goes like: So, you like German tanks? And you want German TD's and Leopard? Okay, here's another useless heavy (this time ugly as hell - that's a bonus), enjoy!  :Smile_trollface-3:

While I agree that the concept is bad as well as non-existant, I really don't care about the historycal aspect of the game, since WG doesn't either. For all I care they can put the Abrams into the game, or a hovertank, as long as it's fun to play. :Smile_smile:

Am I the only person who digs the look? Maybe I have really bad taste   :Smile_veryhappy:
