?|InTheGame_pros=+
?* Excellent view range+
?* 27 tons at 68km/h makes it a nice ramming tank+
?* 105mm howitzer can deal damage to all tanks this tank meets, resetting base capture is nearly guaranteed if the HE shell hits+
?* Can blow tracks off with one shot with 105mm HE shells.+
?* Demolish lightly armoured targets easily.+
?* Excellent arty hunter, and is very effective at fighting other scouts.+
?* Good mobility and turning overall, very similar/better than [[T37]] and can pivot+
?* Front upper glacis plate is thick enough to lead to ricochets for most shells fired to it.+
?|InTheGame_cons=+
?* Somewhat large size for a light tank+
?* Slow muzzle velocity, low accuracy on the 105mm and HE shell dependence means lower DPM generally+
?* High speed loss when turning comparing to other lights+
?* Mediocre base camo+

?The VK 28.01 has a unique game play and is very rewarding to drive once mastered. The 28.01 is an excellent anti-scout and passive scout and performs surprisingly well as a sniper. The ability of HE to produce damage at extreme long ranges combines well with its excellent view range, allowing 28.01 drivers to safely combine passive scouting with sniping on many maps. Its ability to kill artillery quickly makes it an outstanding arty hunter in the mid and latter stages of games. Whenever possible, flank enemies to access their weak side and rear armor for full penetrations. Currently, its premium ammo (HEAT) has low penetrative power for the level of its opponents and should be used with care. However, when the situation presents itself, do not be afraid to use it as you can dish very large amounts of damage this way if you can penetrate.+

?Of note is the fact that the gun depression is better on the sides than on the front. On slopes, drive at an angle and point the gun over the side of the hull.+

?|History=+
? +
?In 1943, Germany planned to stop the production of the Panzerkampfwagen IV no later than the fall of 1944, and since it served as the base for numerous conversions, a replacement was planned. In June 1943, Guderian envisioned a new vehicle - Mehrzweckpanzer (multipurpose tank)- to be used as a reconnaissance tank, artillery observation tank, anti-aircraft tank, light tank destroyer, and light self-propelled carriage as well as other specialized vehicles. The new vehicle was to be designed by Krupp and was designated the VK 2801. Plans were made to start production of this 28 ton vehicle in April of 1945, but in October of 1943, the entire project was cancelled and production of the Panzerkampfwagen IV continued. In June of 1943, Krupp proposed the Mehrzweckpanzer mit Vierling 2cm VK 2801 anti-aircraft tank armed with quad 20mm Flak guns, but it also remained only a project and no prototype was ever constructed. +
