I like the tank. Slow but sturdy (with weakspots), and the guns rate of fire is low but it's a pleasure to fire it. It's just the game around it that's messed up.

Don't buy the VK. It's one of the most boring tanks in the game. On average a game is like this: shoot twice and you're finished. Extremely unreliable armor, very long reload. The only thing that works with this tank is sidescraping.

If you want proper reliable german steel, go get the VK 100.01 P. Superb tank!

 

And it doesnt cost money :)

Lowe or E75TS if you need to grind credits and crew XP.

VK100.01P if you need a tough as nails machine for blocking missions.

VK75.01 if you are feeling generous and love to sponsor the enemy team some XP and credits.

Then you should watch skill4ltu's video if you didnt watch it already and if you did, I think you have to watch it again :). The tank is garbage,any other tier 8 tank is outplaying it.Other premium heavies like IS-3A or defender just rape this german heavy. I outplayed this VK with IS-2S. WITH TIER 7 DERPY AND SLOW RUSSIAN HEAVY. Just think about it.

For some weird reason, this tank is extremely good in Frontline mode, at least for me.
People use less gold ammo plus the distance is a bit longer. 


With the gun though, I can trust this gun more then a Defender gun and much more than IS-3A gun which is a pile of sh*t. But you need to fully aim, no snapshots whatsoever.

 

I like this tank, not my favourite tank in the game but I like it. I like it more than Defender and more than IS-3A.
Due to its rear mounted turret it's a different type of play and this can be fun to get away from "usual" tanks and their type of play.

If you have money it won't be wasted, if you don't have it and you need to calculate your purchase... just skip it.

Funny, same here. Managed to outplay a VK in an IS-2. Really isn't that hard with the VK, it is a poor tank. Still, the Mauerbrecher is even worse.

 

If you look at the fact that the Russians have the Defender and the Object 703 II while the Germans have the VK 75.01 and the Mauerbrecher, you know everything there is to know about Wargaming's idea of balancing. 

 

The sad thing is, both tanks are more or less fantasy tanks, especially the VK, which means Wargaming would not have had to consider the specs of tanks that acutally existed; they had all the creative freedom in the world to make them competetive ... and yet they designed them to be absolute crap. It's hard not to suspect that there is some underlying agenda behind it.
