Hello,

 

I would like to buy Mauerbrecher but I like the tanks without any custom camo, I would like to have on them normal historic camo.

I noticed that this tank Mauerbrecher have also a version without that Ein Berlin camo which is VK 168.01 P and can be found also in game in compare section and preview if you click on it.

My question is that I was away from the game for a period, was VK 168.01 P on sale every ? And if not, when it will be on sale at a later time will Wargaming give the option to switch Mauerbrecher for VK 168.01 P?

 

Thanks

Hello,

 

I have the very same question. The Mauerbrecher clown camo is the one I dislike the most. I will never buy it as it is. On the other hand, I would definitely buy the VK168.01 (even though it is not a good tank) because I am collector.

WG, please do not make us wait two years to get this tank without the ahistorical ugly camo ! :confused:

 

@simiid: the VK168.01 has not been on sale yet

@mike_ba64

Can you make a guess if when it will appear in shop the non-camo version, will we have an option for swap as with amx 13 57 ?

And second, also pz there is pz58 mutz, pz58 black and pz58 normal. I saw that mutz and black were sold but pz58 normal was ever on sale ?

Same goes for the M41 90F, Skorpion G and Primo Victoria. I am waiting for the regular non-skinned versions AND the option to trade my skinned for the non-skinned like they did with the AMX 13 57GF -> AMX 13 57.

Basically only WG (Paris) knows if or when non-skinned version will be available in the future, and if and under which conditions a trade between variants will be possible.

Pz 58 normal was never ever on sale, which sadly means that all existing modeled tanks are not aimed at being sold. This may be the case for the VK168.01 as well. It would be a pity, because it is quite elaborated (new 3D model, not just new camo). But we need to know.

In game if you try to compare 2 tanks, that balance icon, and search for tier 8 heavy german, you will see both mauerbrecher and vk 168.01 P. If you place both in compare to compare them and then if you click on vk 168.01 P picture it will open it in your garage to preview it. Same goes for all other tanks, like pz mutz and pz normal. So the 3D model is made.

In this case the VK 168.01 (P) is clearly the superior choice, because it has a friggin bike on its turret!!!

 

(Which means you can get back to your garage faster when blown up ;) )

Nah, it counts as a spotter, you can sent one crew member out to scout on the bike :)

If the VK 168.01 P was not on sale, it will be in the near future as it had a T25 Pilot kind of marathon on the RU servers.
