VK 45.02 (P) Ausf. B
VK 45.02 (P) Ausf. B
Ferdinand Porsche entwickelte zwei Protoypen (Einer mit vorne liegendem Turm, ein weiterer mit hinten liegendem Turm) dieses Fahrzeuges. Keine Serienfertigung.

The VK 45.02 (P) Ausf. B is a German tier 9 heavy tank.

Two designs of this vehicle (one with the forward-mounted turret and the other with the rear-mounted turret) were drawn up by Ferdinand Porsche. The tank never saw mass production.

It has a comparable frontal armor to its brother, the E-75. It carries the same gun ordnance, but the VK 45.02 (P) Ausf. B has a slightly better gun reload and handling accuracy thanks to its' turret stats. The transmission is located in the middle, which prevents fires from frontal hits, but there is a driver port (albeit small) on the front, and thinner sides. Thus, angling the tank is an absolute must in order to survive.

When first acquired, it comes with an insufficient gun, and will only begin to show its powerhouse when equipped with the L/68 105mm Gun, and will change the balance of battles once equipped with the powerful 128mm L/55 gun

Due to the rear-mounted turret, this tank may seem harder to play and more unwieldy than the previous VK 45.02 (P) Ausf. A. Its' maneuverability is similar if not slightly better than an E75, but give it time and get used to its unique playing style and you could easily find yourself playing a part in tipping the battle in your team's favor.

This tank received a significant buff. The upper frontal plating was buffed to 200mm of thickness, giving an effective armour of over 300mm. That is as effective as an E-100's UPPER plating. Unlike its' PC counterpart, the lower plate remains at a thickness of 170mm leaving it vulnerable, though still stronger when angled. The upper plating has a few weakspots but they are tough to pin-point and still not too weak. The top of turret weakspot has also been buffed from a mere 40mm to 60mm, increasing effective armour greatly.

The VK 45.02 (P) Ausf. B leads to the Maus.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons


  • Good frontal armor when angled.

  • Almost no frontal weak spots.

  • Excellent high alpha gun.

  • Very capable side scraper.


  • Rear mounted turret makes playstyle difficult.

  • Slow without engine upgrades.

  • Very vulnerable to flanking and circling.

  • Mediocre lower plate strength.


The VK 45B is an excellent true heavy tank in WoT Blitz. After a recent improvement, its' 200mm of upper frontal armor is exceedingly thick for most encounters. Like all German heavy tanks, the VK 45B benefits greatly from armor angling. When angling, the simplest method for properly angling is to point the cannon at the potential incoming fire, and rotate the hull underneath the barrel so that the front corner is directly beneath the barrel. This will maximize lower plate thickness and take as much advantage of side armor as possible. While higher penetration weapons can still penetrate the lower plate at this attitude, it's still not an easy shot. Further, if a slightly nose-down position can be adopted, this will increase lower plate armor significantly. No other armor is reliable on the VK 45B, so take note to adopt this front-first attitude at all times.

The VK 45B shares a gun with the E75 as a high alpha, long reload weapon. Unlike many of its' peer tier IX tanks however, the top gun is not purely required and the 10.5cm L/62 armament is quite sufficient for this tank. Instead of spending piles of free XP on the 12.8cm gun, owners should consider playing enough battles to earn the normal experience for the module, saving the free for later. The high alpha/penetration 12.8cm gun is the way to go on this tank. Beware, the reload is long, so take care to position yourself properly during reload. Concentrate on armor angling during this time, even if behind cover. Practice the angle to make it second nature. VK 45B drivers rejoiced during the latter half of 2015 when the tank received numerous buffs to gun handling and especially depression. These improvements make the weapon quite accurate and flexible. Like many german tanks, the gun depression is increased over the sides, so if that's needed, wait till a shot is baited, rotate the hull past the gun to get an extra couple degrees of gun depression.

As good as the armor and gun are on the VK 45B, drivers must take care to manage encounters. This tank is far from quick. It had its' ground resistance buffed but it still is slow and turns slow. A VK 45B is very vulnerable to circling or even short flanking maneuvers as the side armor is quite thin. Analyze team compositions before battle and plan to take beneficial positions where the battle is expected to unfold. Plan ahead, keep the battle at medium range, and don't get overwhelmed attempting to maximize armor values and the VK 45B will reward with excellent performance.

Historical Info

Two prototypes of this vehicle (one with the forward-mounted turret and the other with the rear-mounted turret) were designed by Dr. Ferdinand Porsche, but it never entered production.

This tank, named the VK 45.02 (P) Ausf. B in the game, is based on the prototype with the rear-mounted turret. The forward-mounted turret is represented by the VK 45.02 (P) Ausf. A.
