For the first time in World of Tanks Mercenaries history, we are announcing the release of a brand-new Tier X German Heavy that you can only purchase by using Free XP! 

The VK 72.01 (K) is our brand-new Heavy tank (starting at 450k) and the first ever Tier X to be purchasable with only Free XP!

Here's how it works:

  • Go to the Tech Tree, find and select the VK 72.01 (K) 

  • Once the player presses the purchase button, they will receive the following confirmation dialogue:

  • The VK 72.01 (K) can only be purchased with Free XP

By the way, we know that we are mentioning the VK 72.01 (K) a lot. But then again, we have three good reasons why:


The VK 72.01 (K) can deal up to 750 dmg per shot! And it has a rate of fire of 3 rounds a minute. That’s 2,250 dmg a minute! We’ll just leave it there.


The VK 72.01 (K) is sure to make the fans of the heavy class feel right at home. It also places its gun in the back, making it super effective at side-scrapping. Speaking of which…


In order to get the right angle of things, the VK 72.01 (K) was designed with its turret at the back. Making it perfect to combine it with your surroundings and easily deflect the enemy's fire.
