[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.

AnnoCz17_Vz_55.png

6100000

The Vz. 55 is a Czechoslovakian tier 10 heavy tank.

A blueprint project for a heavy tank from the late 1950s to the early 1960s. It combined concepts of the Soviet and Czechoslovakian tank-building schools with original solutions. The project was discontinued due to the unification of armament of Warsaw Pact countries. No prototypes were built.

The Vz. 55 marks the end of its Czechoslovakian heavy line.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:

+Insane burst potential at 980 average

+Great base 260 AP penetration

+Very good mobility and decent gun depression

+Ludicrously fast reload and intraclip with great gun handling

+Reasonable armor


Cons:

-Low 306 APCR penetration

-Low 2100 HP

-Actually weak weakspots (sizable lower plate and commander's cupola)

-Fairly long aim time

-Higher than usual penetration dropoff at range


Performance

More or less an example of a jack-of-all-trades. The VZ 55 features high alpha damage, incredibly quick clip and intraclip reload, great gun handling, great mobility, decent gun depression and reasonable armor. Both 1 and 2 shot guns are good in their own right, as the 2-shot gun enables for a rapid-damaging support role, while the single shot gun gives better "dpm fight" capabilities.

Much like the T95/FV4201, it can be played in both heavy lanes and medium flanks. The VZ has a decent P/W ratio and top speed (50km stock, can be boosted by field mods and equipment). With its -8 degrees of gun depression, hull-down tactics significantly bolster the effectiveness of the armor. Be sure to wiggle or hide your cupola though, since it is relatively weak compared to the rest of the turret armor and most tier 10s can penetrate it with standard ammo.


Early Research

The top gun is what makes the VZ very powerful.
