Only if you don't compare it to the clearly superior tech tree VK 100.01 P. :hiding:

Superheavy with weakspots pennable by standard ammo. What gold-ammo-complainers wish for in all (super)HT premiums.

This tank is one of the most useful  and most democratic  tanks in the game.

Slowly moving target practice and Xp pinata.

It offers  even to people who dont know how  to play and aim  a hughe box-like slowly moving target to earn xp..

I guess its ok.

Tech tree variany significantly better than premium. Sooooo, pay to lose then? Right? Everybody seem to be crying about pay to win. This must be the perfect tank for them :)

In my opinion possibly the worst premium tank Tier for Tier. Sluggish like the superheavy that it is, but with none of the survivability because of the ludicrous weakspots. The gun is also thoroughly underwhelming. All in all a total stinker of a tank - the price tag is a complete joke. 

 

Btw, this thing was released in 2017, same year as the Defender. That's all you need to know about Wargaming's concept of fairness and game balance.

good morning everyone, just to make your day nice and stress-free: avoid this tank by any means, unless it's at enemy lines on the battlefield, then just enjoy xp piniata.

 

you're totally welcome, enjoy the day!

Out of meta , many weak spots , slow , first arty target, you want more ?

If you want similar tank its free on tech tree and it's better , just take vk 100.01p

Not worth to give even 1 cent for this hit point piniata .

You will thank me later .

This tank was created like old premium tanks, when they were worst than their tech tree comparison. I think Wargaming should buff this tank just slightly and give it preferential matchmaking, and it will be fine. Until then, I do not recommend to purchase this tank (or it's skinned version the Mauerbrecher). I actually don't own it, but I tried Mauerbrecher as a rental.

 

What is actually good:

 

  • big alpha (440 dmg)
  • premium and standard penetration (220-260 mm)
  • gun handling is also OK.
  • viewrange is nice (400 m)

 

What is bad in the tank:

 

  • It mean to be a "superheavy", but armor has significant weakspots, the tier 9-10-s can pen it everywhere, without a big problem.
  • Lack of mobily, it is really slow, hard to reposition.
  • The shell velocity of the standard ammunition is also slow (810 m/s).
