World of Tanks VK 30.01 (H) - 6 Kills 3,3K Damage (1 VS 5)
Medals received: Fadin's Medal, Kolobanov's Medal, Defender, High Caliber, Top Gun
The VK 30.01 (H) is a German tier 5 heavy tank.
An order for developing the vehicle was placed on September 9, 1939. Over the course of its development, Henschel engineers actively used elements of the D.W. II project. The first two prototypes were ready in March 1942; another two were built by October the same year. Hulls of the prototypes underwent trials at the plant proving ground. After the trials, two prototypes were converted into heavy tank destoyers. Six turrets manufactured by the Krupp company were placed at the Atlantic Wall.
This tank is slow for a tier 5 heavy and the rather weak armor doesn't help, giving this tank low survivability in close combat. Also, to be able to mount the 7.5cm Waffe gun, the turret has to be upgraded, but this will decrease the agility and drive-performance of the tank due to the added weight and the slower traverse speed. This tank is recommended for mid-range encounters, as the relatively accurate and highly penetrating 7.5cm Waffe proves extremely effective against even tier 7 tanks. Just make sure you have backup. This tank is a very good for learning more advanced defensive tactics: it has decent hulldown potential (above average gun depression of 8 degrees) and can easily diamond-angle (to the maximum of up to 45 degrees, although it is long).
The VK 30.01 (H) leads to the VK 36.01 (H), and the VK 30.02 (M).
