Hi everyone

 

I need some advices on the VK 45.02 (P) Ausf. A. On paper it seems to be a so so Heavium tank, but in practice I find that it inherits the bad of both lines. Barely any armor for a HT and bad soft stats for MTs. The armor needs to be in an extreme angle to bounce anything off, and the gun can't accurately target weakspots unless fully aimed, which exposes your hull to damage. 

So how do you make the VK 45.02 (P) Ausf. A work? There's barely any recent video tutorial/replays to watch so any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

WASD moves the tank to start with, moving your mouse around aims your turret. Right button to fire.

You go brawl with mediums and hide your lfp as much as possible.
The standard ammo is pretty meh plus the gun is wonky so feel free to use premium ammo if you can afford it.
try to preaim as much as possible, and also run food if you can, it really helps.

Basically, go to most MT lines too? With MT against enemy MTs?

Pretty much Heavium but Bigger , just use your speed. 

Unless you talking the B version that's the different thing

It's a tank that has been powercept almost as much as the Tiger II.

 

Like others said, you have to go with the mediums, especially when mid and bottom tier, since WG decided to reverse the frontal armor so that the ufp is the stronger one and the lfp is now the weak one, you can tank hits from equal tier meds and occasionally HT's with a touch of angling. Unfortunately it does share the same shitty turret that the Tiger II gets, so the roof is an overmatch for 122mm+ guns, the turret face is 185, and the turret sides may be an autobounce directly front on, as soon as you turn it 2° or more the autobounce angle is gone and it is now an autopen for tier 7+.

 

The height of the tank + lack of gun depression compared to said height + cheese turret makes hulldown worthless so don't bother.

 

When top tier, so long as they don't have something like a Defender you can go with the HT's and bait shots with the ufp, so long as they aren't using gold that is. 

When it comes to the gun you will have to apply liberal use of gold in tier 10 games, and sometimes in tier 9, but usually 200 pen is actually enough for the typical places like lfp's and cupolas (of course there are exceptions to this *looks at the 430U's 300mm cupolas*) 

When it comes to using the gold ammo, it is still quite poor, being 244 compared to the Tiger II's 285, but that is also 2mm less than the base pen for the tier 10 German HT's, so it is enough for 90% of the tanks.

 

Just experiment with your playstyle in it and do what works best for you, I still have mine and play it once every 300 or so games.

That explains it..... So just bully meds if possible and leave the actual HTs to the true HTs unless I'm alone.
