Awesome vehicle - one of, if not my actual, favourites.

Just needs a teensy weensy speed boost.

Mobility in general is pretty good, just needs that extra 5kph to make it an absolute beast.

They destroyed it's viewrange, which killed it for me.

Never worried about it's speed though...

Removed the 5+ skills/perk crew

I think nowadays vk1602 is OP at tier V. Only in hands of a very skilled player, because that terrible pen and dpm.

 

I would only reduce its size (was increased years ago), and improve the mobility to match that of the luchs.

The size, it is all about the size. No matter what they say.

This tank, like many others in this game are not to scale at all.

 

A Leopard as big as an IS tank.

WTF WG?!

Wake UP!

 

This was the tank I started my LTing carreer on. Back hten it was at tier 4 and received a 4+ MM all day long.

There was no Sixth Sense. The indicator of being spotted was, when you got hit one shoted.

Depending on if you got "Tip99" or not, getting spotted usually meant getting a "Steelwall" award...   :playing:

I think that they should give it the 105 mm derp gun...

I would really really like that...  :popcorn:

it just gets too many engine knock-outs from the front..... 1 out of 3 games I get fucked in it because of this, take one shot, loose engine and track, die, cry

 

Maybe they could fix the engine taking damage from the front

I think it is fine as it is. They did change the play style of it a bit when they reduced the view range (and HP if I remember correctly) and instead added the vert stab. Now it is a complete beast in close combat, and if used properly for aggressive scouting/damage dealing I think there is no equal on T5. Partly because of the size and lack of speed, it doesn't really play like a regular LT (if there is such a thing...).

My 200th battle with VK 1602, when standard spot on Malinovka turned into a total massacre.

12 spotted tanks and 3500 assist damage in tier 5 battle.

The new garage really shows that the current size is simply wrong.

Current Leopard is the size of a school bus.

So, which gun is the best option nowadays? I did not know the penetration of the 50mm cannon got better. I do think I have had more success with the 30mm autocannon, but could well be I have not just learned how to best employ the heavier gun.

 

I run optics, vents, and vertical stabilizer. (Seems I cannot equip a gun rammer, which, kinda, speaks for the autocannon, if one wants to min-max.)

 

EDIT: Better thread would have been the "Leopard, tier 5 powerhouse", but I guess I blinded out before writing this. Sorry for that.

Now go check the actual size in the game..... another fail from Wargaming.
