Now i DON'T know whether this is true or not but rumor has it this tank will be a PREMIUM.

 

First about the tank ARTICLE COPIED FROM: https://www.wot.expr...-16801-mauerbr/

 

Europeans discovered a new tank: VK 168.01 Mauerbrecher

He already knows us, this is the tank, codenamed "Bicycle" . Well, you remember those chic forms. 
Thus, we traditionally get two identical tanks with color and without - VK 168.01 (P) and Mauerbrecher (TTX are completely identical). Crew of 6 people. The tank was added to the client 9.20 WOT, and now has undergone some changes and received a duplicate in the form of a brother with a special. camouflage. What will happen to him next is unmarketable. The first exit to the super test took place in May this year. 

Very interesting description of VK 168.01 Mauerbrecher: The tank was supposed to be used in the defense of Berlin in April-May 1945, but during the movement along the street (due to the large mass) the car fell through the tunnel of the Berlin underground. This subway line was not used in the postwar period, and the tank was forgotten. In the summer of 1989, the tank was discovered during repairs in the territory of West Berlin. At the same time, protest moods were growing in East Germany. West Berliners, tried to help their eastern compatriots, restored the tank to running speed and applied "urban camouflage" to it. Since it did not happen before the armed clashes, the tank was used as a battering ram when it was demolished in November 1989. 

__________________________________
Well, now about the bad. The tank that deserved to buy / receive, from VK 168.01 Mauerbrecher DISCARDED BICYCLE. YES, they just took it and left there a blank space. The machine lost its main attribute, what kind of things are these ?! Therefore, all not indifferent distribute this post and hashtag  # Return to the BicycleTank  ! Let's return to the radio operator his vehicle and a unique part of the view in the World of Tanks.

Its like VK 100 but with...

 

- 4.6 hp/ton, this will have close to the worst mobility in the game as it wont go above 15 like almost never except downhill

- much weaker cupola (tho tbh thats how it probs should be IMO)

- tumor weakspot on UFP

- much weaker inner side armor; in fact, if you angle it more than 30 degrees, tier 6 MTs can shoot its tracks, and then damage the track AND the tank

- weaker rear armor

- worse UFP (tier 10 gold spam actually will work)

- worse turret armor considering the flatness

 

Everything else is the same.

 

As it is now, no thanks. If it had more normal HP/ton, like +8, then I would consider, but even still it would be a significantly worse VK 100. Though VK 100 is too good so it is kinda a bad argument, but still. I think more safe option would be to tone the VK 100 down instead of buffing this further, just to avoid the risk of another powercreep premium.

 

Knowing WG, they either release it on this shitty state or they implement a micropatch day before its release where its overbuffed to oblivion.

we all know WG plays with hp/ton and terrain resistance values for the mobility of tanks... so yeah... it remains to be seen.

Finally, a tank that will make the TOG look like a racecar.

Seriously though, the model looks nice. Unlike the VK100, which looks like it was drawn by a five-year old with a crayon. The problem is, while the VK100P is a pretty good tank on most maps, it's incredibly boring to play. This one will be even worse.

You’re a bit late, we already have topics about this

 

But not with so much hype :D

OP fail.

 

I'm fine with the VK168, looks balanced. Not OP, but not underpowered AT ALL.

The only possible way to accelerate this roadblock is off a cliff...

It "lost" the turret bicycle, but sure kept the one in the back. Don't tell me you missed that...

Sorry to cause disruption in your online gaming forum journalism. - Now that is trolling, before I just made a comment. Don't know where you saw trolling there.
