Characteristics of VK 72.01 (K) Tank in World of Tanks

This device, which players proudly call "Slipper lion", is one of the gift tanks for the Campaign on the Global Map. VK 72.01 (K) the tank has a so-called "promotional" status, which allows you to quickly pump the crew on this car and transfer tankers here without penalties, but you will not be able to farm on it, since the coefficient of credits received on it is normal.

If we compare this device with something else, we can say that we are looking at a cross between the legendary E 100 and the new top-end cable Pz.Kpfw released in patch VII. On the first one, our unique VK 72.01 (K) World of Tanks is similar in weapon, appearance and armor, but let's take a closer look at the car.

VK 72.01 (K) also has its own unique 3D style "Namenlos".


Characteristics VK 72.01 (K)

According to the already established tradition, we will start with the fact that the safety margin of the VK 72.01 (K) is good, but not record-breaking by the standards of classmates. In addition, the basic viewing range at our disposal is standard and good - 400 meters.


Firepower VK 72.01 (K)

The situation with weapons in our case is no less interesting, because as you all know, the E100 gun is very formidable and it is also installed on this special tank, let's take a closer look at it.

So, the VK 72.01 (K) gun has a very powerful alpha strike by the standards of heavy tanks, but at the same time a low rate of fire. However, the cooldown duration does not prevent us from giving out about 2250 damage units per minute, which can be considered the norm by HT-10 standards.

This weapon has some problems with penetration. This means that the penetration capacity of armor-piercing shells VK 72.01 (K) WoT it is often not enough, which is why it is very comfortable and most effective to play on gold cumulative's. However, this is expensive and not necessary, and you can also do with conventional shells.

As expected, for such a powerful one-time damage, you have to pay for accuracy. Here it is worth saying that the heavy tank VK 72.01 (K) World of Tanks has a really large spread, our gun is reduced slowly and its stabilization is weak.

As for the comfort of shooting, in addition to accuracy, we have quite capricious angles of vertical aiming. VK 72.01 (K) tank it can lower the gun 7 degrees down, but only from the side or stern, because of the rear location of the tower in the front sector, the barrel bends down only 5 degrees and this is bad.


Survivability VK 72.01 (K)

Survival should be a fundamental factor in any tie, and in the case of VK 72.01 (K), booking characteristics can be both surprising and upsetting. Let's start with the tower, as this element of the tank can be considered the strongest. Thanks to various bends, bevels and a massive gun mask, you will not find a turret less than 300 millimeters in the forehead, and in most areas this diameter exceeds the figure of 400, which allows you to tank very efficiently.

The front of the body is a less protected, but still quite strong part of the car. Heavy tank VK 72.01 (K) I have to hide my lower frontal part, because in some places this sheet of armor is about 260 millimeters thick. For the rest, especially if we talk about the Upper Frontal Part, the reservation, taking into account the slopes, here ranges from 270 to 380 millimeters.


As for the side projection, our tank is also strong on this side, if you do not let the enemy into the side and turn the hull correctly, exposing the rhombus at a favorable angle. But due to the fact that the VK 72.01 (K) WoT tank has a narrowed silhouette in front, the wide base of the tower bulges out and the armor is weak at the junction, that is, we can break through here successfully and we need to act carefully.

Like all top German heavyweights, our car does not have high driving parameters. VK 72.01 (K) World of Tanks has the maximum speed for heavy lifting normal, the ratio of horsepower per ton of weight is very low, which is why the dynamics suffer, and there are obvious problems with maneuverability.

Equipment selection VK 72.01 (K)

If there are problems with accuracy, this option fits perfectly into the package, and its benefits are significant.
3 Improved Ventilation

If you still experience a lot of accuracy issues, the last module can be replaced with Усиленные_приводы_наводки.png. And for those who have enough of everything, but an important survival rate, you can put WoT on the German heavy tank VK 72.01 (K) 1488219240_podboy.png, again instead of the third item.

Arriving at the cherished place chosen in advance, where you will not be able to throw artillery at you and there will be a good place to take up a position, we proceed to the main thing. Tank heavy tank VK 72.01 (K) should only forehead, just slightly turning body that increase the given values of armor.
