part Panzer IV, part Panther. Mixing these two great vehicles is like mixing a Tyrannosaurus and a Velociraptor.....

 

From the depths of Belorussia we bring you this...... comedy special!   :teethhappy::teethhappy::D:D

Could be interesting with this tank in a tier 6 FL mode. Don't feel there are too many maps there carter to it currently.

Used to like this when it was available as a regular hull+turret combination. But would not pay anything for it.

My very first premium tank from way back in the depths of history when the Pz4 was hit with the nerf bat. This is how the regular Pz4 used to be, just much faster.
Still my most played tank as it was my only credit maker. Before gold ammo could be bought for silver that turret meant something. Before the gun dispersion models were changed the gun used to be accurate.

Now it's just a slow, paper turd which gets absolutely nailed by t-34-85m's, type 64's etc

You can have some fun with it in tier 6 SH in a defending position.. But as soon as you meet a team that is half decent and filled with t-34-85M (isn't it always) you are mostly dead meat.

The gun is nice, but the mobility, power-to-weight ratio and turret traverse speed mean you can get circled to death by an enemy TOG II. Which will have reached your cap circle before you managed to drive out of it. This vehicle is best used as a defensive TD. :sceptic:

75L70 gun at tier 6, 1.84 sec aimtime and 0.29 accuracy are good numbers,

 

but ... that's it ... not worth it ...

It did get a HD re-work and it looks very fine now! I haven't played it in a while but I remember using this for MT:12 back in the day!

Looks decent enough but that mobility though: 10hp/t? That's...bad. And what is up with that engine health: 86?!

I rarely say this for premium tanks but..i loved this tank. It may be irrelevant in curent meta but hey, it shots fast, it shots good, it can train very fine germn crew, i think this tank worth the trouble. I loved mine...fine old times :)

I'd rather play something with an engine.This and chinukai have hp/t like superheavy tanks.If it had decent engine and turret traverse i would consider buying it.Better create a VK 3001(P)remium ediition and sell it.Thats a proper t6 german medium
