The VK 28.01 used to be a DERP scout at Combat Tier 7, able to mount the same 105mm howitzer used on the Hetzer and Pz4H...  This made the tank incredibly fun, being able to deal insane damage on soft targets and always able to dent even the hardest foes.  Also in spite of being a little on the slow side, the VK was fairly heavy and so epic at ramming enemy LTs for extra LOLs.  In WoT version 9.18 the 105mm gun option was removed, a very very sad day...we'll always remember our good times together my friend, O7.

Can we also add the 59-16 to the list?

 

The 85mm auto-loader made this tank unique and deadly in the right hands ^^

 

But it's gone ;-;

Ok, so some of the nerfs they at least tried to justify by saying they didn't want lights to be able to compete with meds... but did anyone catch any of the reasoning for this?

I find WG reasoning is often: You asked so we delivered!

After coming back to tanks after a while and jumping back to plat with my mates on what was my favourite tier 6 tank, I discovered at first "Oh my camo is gone, wasn't it permanent?", then, "Anyway, readd ammo, must have unloaded when the new LTs came in", so we jump into battle, I set up in my old spot, see a puny damaged T67 drive by and think "Oh, this is perfect".
I fire 1 shot expecting a big red fire, instead I see only 100 damage dealt and am now being rapid fired down. Get back to garage and realise... There's no freaking top gun on my tank! 

 

We need to change it back, the 59-16 as well, that tank was hilarious with it's low pen magazine. Why remove all the defining characteristics of these tanks? It's almost as though there can be no viable alternative to the tanks that have the highest dpm of their tier.

I loved my VK 28.  Was my most played tank until they took the 105 from it :(   Even before that though they nerfed it and increased the dispersion on the move (ok that might have been needed :p )
I havn't sold it though.  Too many fond memories and all the ramming lols.  Gotta love racking up scout and kamikaze badges ;)

Keep your fingers crossed, the new German Tier 8 LT may be a Super VK Derp tank...

105mm gun IMO should be added again with some nerf to make its gameplay more logical from Leopard.

Also, buff dat Rhm-Pzw.

This was actually the first LT I did okay in. Mind you this was the tank where I started learning to play LTs properly. I do miss the derp on it though; it's one of the tank's defining characteristics, much like the autoloader on the Sp. 1C.

I think it is time to remember the 2801 and how enjoyable it was due to how different it was to the it's same tier equivalents, the time when derp ramming was a viable way to counter scout (in honour of the Aufk panther, also lost). Now we are left with an array same same tier 6 scouts with no real difference between them aside from how "competitive" they are, which is really sad, as some of us don't give a damn about that and just want a fun tank to play. Add to that the new light armoured tds entering the game and how virulent they are in the MM, should there not be a specialist tank to combat the new threat? Return the 105, nerf its reload or dispersion on the move if you need to, just bring it back. For the greater good.
