[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.

The VK 72.01 (K) is a German tier 10 premium heavy tank.

A superheavy tank with rear placement of the turret. Developed by the Krupp company. A new vehicle was to have stronger armament and enhanced armor compared to the VK 70.01. Existed only in blueprints.

Also known as the "Failowe", the VK 72.01 (K) was awarded to the 3,000 players who amassed the most Fame Points in the Second Clan Wars Campaign. Notable for its unique appearance, the tank is the most mobile of the German tier 10 heavy tanks, and utilizes the E 100's 15 cm Kw.K. L/38.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:

- Good frontal armor and strong turret face

- The rear-mounted turret makes sidescraping a viable option

- Good ramming tank due to high weight and very good top speed

- High damage-per-shot

- Much faster than the E-100 or Maus


Cons:

- Quite low damage-per-minute

- Somewhat small ammo capacity

- Poor accuracy and aim time

- Slow to turn

- Reloads slower than the comparable E-100, despite using the same gun

- The lack of a second Loader position makes it incompatible with either E-100's or Maus' Crew, making it a troublesome trainer at best.


Performance

As it is decently fast for a German tier 10 Heavy tank its best to utilize this by claiming a choke point and start sidecraping. This tank is a beast when you minimize your total area that's exposed to enemy fire. The VK, like many other tier X heavies, does not have good side/rear protection and is as vulnerable as any to flanking; with its slow turret traverse pushing too far ahead can be very dangerous. The VK works best in a defensive capacity or by working in concert with other tanks while pushing down a lane. With an even slower rate of fire than the other 150mm-armed heavy, the E-100, the VK7201 usually will not win a damage-per-minute contest and probably responds best to peek-a-boom style play.

The gun depression on the VK is not terrible despite being a rear-turreted tank, and with the excellent turret face, the VK can be quite decent at using slight variations in terrain to create impromptu hull-down fighting locations which relocating between areas of better cover.

Historical Accuracy Errata

The following are consensus errors or inconsistencies which have been identified with the configuration of the vehicle in question and conflict with information available on the public record. The causes for these divergences in the game are normally not disclosed and may be rooted in game balance.

According to in-game description, There's no proof that Krupp was redesign the VK 70.01 (Löwe). Since Adolf Hitler and his Generals were more interested in Maus project. So, The tank project is more likely nonexist.
