Its OP against same and lower tiers. Works against some of the t9s, absolute trash against t10 like every single t8.

They are usually further back, so as long as you angle properly there's high chance you'll bounce. Of course their prem rounds gonna be bigger problem than say, basic t44s.

Beautiful heavy with 2 viable gun options.

 

10.5cm for more DPM, better accuracy and gun handling but less penetration and alpha. 12.8cm for more alpha and penetration, makes short work of same and lower tier tanks and more opportunities to overmatch stuff.

 

The armor is the best among tier 8 tanks i guess, defender's armor looks crappy compared to this monster!

Now I'm not a good VK OP player by any metric, but here's what helped me during my time in the damn box.

-try to lumber along with teammates. More targets means distraction, helps with bouncing.
-carry premium ammo. Both stock gun and top gun are pretty much useless with AP against tX, unless you can shoot overmatch area with 128.
-keep in your mind that the flaktower at the top is on one side only, so try to sidescrape with keeping that side in cover. Sadly Mauschen has it on other side, so you need to relearn good spots at t9.
-never ever go to open areas, arty or not. The Titanic can't turn swiftly enough to counter lts and mts, and some more faster hts can easily circle you.
-don't bother sidescraping against sumo tanks, just try to head on against them and pray that they don't aim under you, or at the shot trap under your turret front. I bought spall liner bc [edited]HE. Was fun driving head on vs OHos and looking at those absorbed HEs.

Don't get cocky, bc as good as VK is, it gets easily focused.

My Tiger 2 bounces off them all day long, so seems a good bet for blocking damage.

I like it. Weakness is that it has large weak point at top and low pen gun

Maybe aim on the lower plate? XD easy pen most of the time. if you have no other option, go for commander hatch on top, but that one isn't really a weakspot.

I think it's one of the best tanks for the bouncing missions. Not joking !

VK 100 is the ultimate non-tier 10 superheavy, nothing else can keep up. Unless its vs. tier 10s gold ammo actually doesnt necessarily autopen it, because the pennable parts of turret front and cupola are fairly small and still 230+ effective.

On the right map and situation as well as MM it's downright OP, if that ain't the case it's pretty meh, it's one of those tanks that you either have a great match or a crap one with nothing in between.

I repurchased it for some of the campaign blocking missions, it seemed to do the job for some of them. A big plus is that it's a lot smaller than the Mauerbrecker, so it's lower front plate is a much more difficult target.

But Defender has near impenetrable upper plate, Russian turret with tiny cupolas and T8s still need to load gold to even consider shooting the lower plate. Any 200 pen can go through the lower plate of VK. And Defender is way faster with the same alpha.

I love tanks that can't be frontally penetrated by tanks in the same class and tier, let alone lower tiers. Great design, fun gameplay, blissfully balanced. :sceptic:

Lower plate of the VK...

 

 

Lower plate of the Defender...

 

 

The upper plates of both tanks are very different because the Defender's pike nose, both are very strong. Also the VK got a reliable gun, can't say the same about the Defender!

the vk1001P is a big sluggish tank.

 

if you like that, go ahead it's good enough.

if you don't, get something else, there are many tanks that are far more able and still have good armor.
