Is suspect they have not buffed or removed any of the weakspots either? As the last time I saw it. It had a paper lower plate. MG port weakspot and a paper cupola that is about the size of a house to. And were not the side windows weak to? Now I know people have been ragining about tanks with no weakspot. But.. this had a bit to many of them head on tbh to even work hulldown. And with those stats. I suspect it won't be "valid" either tbh. It has enough pen to deal with a VK 100.01's weak spots only on an above average roll. And forget the other super heavies it will face.

It´s kinda cool they´re thinking about a German equivalent of the Defender, Liberte, Patriot and Co. The "historical" text is still hair-pullingly bad and the tank is just awful. It has the firepower of a Defender, but none (!) of the mobility and worse armor. Unleyy this tank has Leviathan levels of HP it´s just not worth it.

Except the weakspot in the frontal upper plate...it looks balanced to me...not like that stupid op AF vk100.01p aka mini maus...if they remove that weakspot from the ufp...it will be balanced...because you simply can't put a weakspot in the ufp of a superheavy tank...

Why not? they did it to Super Pershing.... and they finally tried saying it was a heavy tank at one point. but you know.. leave the small details out.

SP it's classified as a medium...and it plays as a heavy...plus it goes 40 and it's still mobile enough...this thing is a SUPERHEAVY...it goes 20KPH and it has a 4.64 HP/T...so it barely even drags across the floor...

British TD's go 20 and they have nowhere near this level of armor.. nor gun power ether sadly.

Ok then...pls go ahead and play with your tier 8 superheavy that goes 20, if it will even ever achieve that speed even on hard flat ground with those 4.64 hp/t while you have a weak cupola, cheese lowerplate and a huge hole with 140mm of armour in your upper plate...like really?...

That "historical" description tells me that this tank is 100% WG made.

Honestly I don't see it being a massive issue.

The only real difference between this and the VK 100p is mobility (in which it is far worse) and the armour. And here again it's far worse. It actually has weakspots! I know right!? Weakspots on a new superheavy!!! In other words, you'll be able to pen it in a same-tier tank with standard ammo!!!!!! REJOICE!

I don't know what those guy at WG HQ are drinking, but I got a sneaking suspicion it is not vodka.

 

My bet is a strong kind of absinthe.

The tank itself is real; its just a alternative design of Mäuschen with front turret and never went beyond blueprints, but it existed. Camo and descroption are made up, ofc

Stats are unchanged, very odd. I dont see the point of this thing;  it seems like significantly worse VK 100 with no unique niche over it. Why it still has that retarded HP/ton is beyond questionable. VK 100 does need a nerf but they should still give this thing "something" over the VK 100.

It's not the first time we have seen "in house WG humor" in a super test tank. So IDK why so many care about it. Sure it's BS. But... do anyone really care? Oh god now a WG made up tank..... oh wait.

This tank has the mobility of the current british heavy tank destroyers and it has the same armor. In other words, it doesn't go anywhere and even if it somehow finally arrives where it wants to be, the enemy tanks can't miss the weakspots, making the armor and the mobility that derives from the armor pointless. In short: It's useless.

 

Giving a tank weakspots is alright and fair, but this tank has so many weakspots that you can not even miss them if you tried.

Aim for the weakspot in the upper plate, it misses and either hits the cupola above or the lower plate bellow :) balance, DA. It's like someone from their department thought...comrades...we made the chrysler with 0 weakspots...and they are complaining...we need to do something...no problem ivan, sergey has a solution, weakspot down, weakspot up and weakspot in the middle, so even if it misses where they aim it will still hit another weakspot, DA? DA! *drinks vodka*

Historical.... wait wat????

 

They used this tank to demolish the Berlin wall????

I watched the opening of the wall live on TV.

They must have kept this a secret, with a few million Berliners in the streets at the time.
