[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Excellent view range
  • 27 tons at 68km/h makes it a nice ramming tank
  • Good mobility and turning overall, very similar/better than T37 and can pivot
  • Front upper glacis plate is decently thick, can have unexpected bounces


Cons:


  • Somewhat large size for a light tank
  • High speed loss when turning comparing to other lights
  • Mediocre base camo


Performance

Originally, the VK28.01 offered a unique gameplay experience thansk to its ability to mount a howitzer, which turned it into a miniature version of the T49. However, with patch 9.18 this option has been removed form the game. What is left is an adequate, but unremarkable light tank with good view range and decent frontal armour.

Historical Info

The VK 28.01 project started in June of 1943 by Gen. Guderian. He wanted a multipurpose tank(mehrweckpanzer) to replace the Panzer IV. The VK 28.01 was to be the basis of light tank destroyers, flak panzers, recon vehicles, and other panzer variants. In particular, Krupp proposed the Mehrzweckpanzer mit Vierling 2cm VK 2801 anti-aircraft tank armed with quad 20mm Flak guns. The VK 28.01 was to weigh approximately 28 tons (hence the VK 28.01). The top speed of the VK 28.01 was to be slightly over the maintainable speed of ~30 km/h. The planned ~550 hp Argus engine would power the VK 28.01 and give it nearly a 20 hp/t ratio(very good p/w ratio).


Krupp envisioned the VK 28.01 with a modified Pz IV turret. The Hull armor of the VK 28.01 was to be 50/30/30. The 50 mm upper front plate was sloped at 55 degrees while the lower plate of the same thickness was sloped at 45 degrees. The turret armor was to be 50/30/30 protection and was nearly identical to the panzer IV turret. The only distinguishing feature was the cupola which was based off the Panther's cupola.

In July of 1943 it was thought that the VK 28.01 Mehrzweckpanzer would not see production until April of 1945. In October of 1943 the Germans cancelled the VK 28.01 project.
