2-4 shots is how many i usually take most of the time if i fire uninterrupted. As i play almost like a medium, the 5.6s reload or whatever is enough time to sneak that 2nd shot in or if they've really screwed up and are ripe for farming, 3-4.

 

Really, the main advantage is how often you can get that sneaky 2nd shot in as opposed to 1 and reloading too slow for the 2nd.

As a crew trainer this tank is a much better and cheaper alternative to the T8 Lowe and will match all of the German T5 and above crew layout unlike the German B2.

And also its a tier lower. True the SU 122-44 is a good tank but it's a TD, the Berlin IS2 is better but it's Russian.

The Tiger I sure fires alot faster and the Tiger P has more frontal armor. But you can't train your E75 crew w/o penalty or any other German HT crew in them for that matter.

It also has better gun handling, ground resistance values and tank/turret traverse than either T7 German HTs.

And you don't get to meet T10 unlike the Lowe.

Would they even release that tank?

Since we already have the Japanese HT no.6 and that's just basically the same tank just different nations.

 

They just might...

i want a historical Tiger I of German, not "Green Tiger under the sea", the real Tiger fight against E8/Firefly/T-34-85 in real life, not against Tiger's killer T29, IS-2 or the Jpanese Tiger never made it to Japan...

 

Block Quote

 Well, knowing WG we already have the Chinese IS2 and British Cromwell yet they still released the improved Berlin IS2 and the somewhat improved Cromwell B.

 

remember count rudy and isu122s in too

Make it Mid-Production Tiger since HT no.VI representing early Production and tier 7 Tiger I can be passed as late variant. This way it won't be THAT redundant.


Back to World of Tanks for now.

I want real life M4 sherman firing Phosphorus shells into King Tigers and then the Tigers vent sucking the Phosphorus into the crew compartment killing the entire crew.

Because you know real life.
 


Shad0: You know that time when there was a King Tiger on 2 HP and another King Tiger on Full life ? And the King Tiger rammed uphill in slow motion, for 1 HP and then kept fail ramming until he was killed by the a 1 Hit point tank. Was the stupidest tank ever
Shad0: You are now that Noob KingTiger

WG should make this available for purchase with gold in-game since it's going to be out for a month since some people have a lot of gold that they may have no real need of spending on anything, and considering that it's $46 AUD  seems a little too pricey for a tier 7.

Personally i liked the idea of big effort month long missions to win tanks like this for free (like fv201, wz-111)

 

and even the token system was pretty cool

Theyll still sell plenty and the only players rewarded with a freebie are dedicated to the game so win-win

But profit.......

Seconded this. Tho it will be only available for the 75mm M3, not for the 76mm M1. Didn't recall WP shells being used on that gun

Gotta agree with the current price of it right now for a tier 7 is expensive as balls.

What's there to buff?

German tanks are not known for their armor or tough turrets specially at T7.

Its all about the gun. The long 88 that is equipped on this tank is adequate for the tanks that it will most likely meet.

Though like most T7 tanks when it gets to meet T9 tanks it is highly outclassed premium or not.

As a T7 German tank it has advantages in comparison to its brethren, it is much more mobile than either Tiger I or Tiger P

it has the best gun handling of its class bordering T8 gun handling and bloom though it fires slower than the Tiger I.

But it makes it up in its armor layout when compared to the Tiger I.

With its short aim time, decent mobility and -8 of gun depression (better than its contemporaries) this tank can work the ridges decently.

Well if you want armor, then this is the wrong nation for you.

The MM for this tank is shocking im getting about 90% tier 9 games and trust me its not pretty in a Tier 9 game in this tank.

Unless they give this preferential MM I would save your money and buy a Tier 8 premium.

What do you expect? This is a Tier VII premium tank and naturally does not enjoy the same credit potential as ANY Tier VIII premium.

If you just want to grind for money there are better tanks out there (JagdT 8.8 is pretty good in earning credits).

This tank is just basically a Tiger I which also sees Tier IX (which can be a welcome anytime in comparison with the alternative)

This also has better gun handling, earns better credits than any regular Tier VII tanks while doing it  and an also alternative of the Lowe which sees Tier X.

So you choose either with the Lowe (max Tier X) or VK 45.03 (max Tier IX) for your german crew trainer.

And if you're hoping for pref.MM, that's not going to happen anymore with the current trend WG is going with every new release of a premium tank.

I figure , I should comment about the VK4503 after playing it . It is a hidden gem , the gun is absolutely the best part of the tank . The armour will only save you from low tier tanks or with careful side scraping you could potentially bounce off some shells and lastly the speed of this HT is good enough to keep up behind MT . All in all , it has the balance of fire power , armour and mobility . Also this tank being in tier 9 means that you get to stay back and use the lazer accuracy of this gun to support your team . No tank is useless at any tier , its how you use it . Fine you may lose a couple of top tier games because you are the bottom of the food chain but this is a 15v15 battle . What a tanker should look at , is his performance in the battle he participated .

Bit of a thread necro here....

 

Got the VK45.03 rental with the challenge this weekend.

 

I'm impressed! I enjoy my IV-H and to a slightly lesser extent my Tiger 1 and this beastie seems to be a combination of the best of both.

To me it feels like a combo of Medium-Heavy. Heavium perhaps? lol.

 

Love the gun handling and the armour does work as long as you angle it.

Oh, and the gun depression is great too, use that right on a ridge and its bounce city while you pick everything off.

 

Nice little earner, made a profit over 100k in my best game which is very rare for me. 

Will probably snap it up if it comes back on sale again.
