Hello everyone!

Well, I created this topic, to pass on all known data on the VK 36.01 (H)

VK 36.01 chassis

As well as a couple of the turrets, never to be actually fitted to their hulls:

vk3601s10-d28253b2a474d60dd1830064eab8ea

 

 

And why this?
Well, I could create a suggestion with it,

but the suggestion already exists.

 

However the data on the tank is spread across several pages of the topic.
And that makes it very difficult to understand.

Not to mention the fact that this suggestion uses data from Wargaming

Undoing a myth, the VK36.01 never had plans to install the 88mm KwK36 weapon.

 

The weapon options were. 10.5cm

However, Germany had restrictions on the production of tungsten.
And Waffe 0725, which was an adaptation of PaK 41, needed 1kg of tungsten for each shot.

This restriction of Tungsten only left an alternative to the design of the VK36.01
The already tested KwK40 L/48

Perspective:

In a way the VK36.01 (when equipped with the KwK40) would be only a KV-1B 756 (r) with better mobility

You should put all your data onto that thread in a comment, it is unlikely that this thread will be forwarded to the developers.

Due to the bad sources used in the original post.
I am thinking of asking the moderator about the possibility of creating a new post with this suggestion.

@SAUBER_KH7 what your think about ?
