Hey peeps,
I noticed something when going through German techtree and checking those modules:
Radio 10WSc
Compatible Vehicles:
Maus, G.W. E 100, E-100, JagdPz E-100, E-50 Ausf. M, VK 72.01 (K)
So, VK 72.01 (K). Is this the Failöwe which will probably be a reward for a CW campaign in the future?
I don't know, so please, discuss.

EDIT: when I tried to edit this post, the "editor" removed the space between the lines which makes it look stupid, but I guess you can still get the point.

You sure it's got side weakspots ? Because that model above doesn't show any

maaan, that is going to be such a good tank... who at WG had the idea of adding those side "things" just to make it incapable of proper sidescraping?

I would like that tank but don't think I will ever get my hands on one. Only if I can get in one of those really good clans like kazna, ideal, Unica for example.

Take a look at its speed and armament, it looks quiet interesting.

look at the back.. not only does it has crappy angles (that negate your side scraper slope) on the sides, the back of the vehicle is rounded, so you can't sidescrape at all, you will present the enemy a nice spot to shot you if you do so. Its only 160mm, so basically nothing at T10.
Not to mention the front is also pretty weak, while the upper glacis might be 200mm sloped nicely, the lower plate is also only 200m but pretty much no slope at all, basically maus weak spot.
Also the turret only has 160mm and is basically a löwe turret, which means beside the gun mantle every gun will penetrate at will.

Its rate of fire will be inferior to the e100, 2.73 isnt that great.

And 1200 hp compared to nearly 120 tons is also nothing special.

It all doesnt matter as its already save to say that we will see plenty of "vk7201 is op" as soon as some clans archieved it. As we just had this topics on the m60.

Wait till its out on the public server before deciding whether it is good or not. The M60 is better than the M48 in every way except vehicle height.

i played both m48 and m60...same tanks for me.....but looking at how this vk looks and as i heard and read about it, e-100 will be way better than it..
