World of Tanks Löwe – 9 Kills 7K Damage
Medals received: Radley-Walter’s Medal, Steel Wall, High Caliber, Top Gun
The Löwe is a German tier 8 premium heavy tank.
Development of this 70-ton super-heavy tank started on November 1, 1941. In February 1942, the Krupp company suggested the VK 70.01 avant project, later designated the Löwe („Lion“). Several designs varying in configuration, armament, and armor, were drafted. However, the project was canceled after the Führer made the decision to develop even heavier tanks. No prototypes were ever built.
Designed for sniping, the Löwe is armed with the very accurate 10.5 cm KwK L/70, and is paired with a rather decent hull. While not quite as heavily armored as the Pz.Kpfw. Tiger II, it’s sufficient to protect it from tier 7 guns. The turret however is heavily sloped allowing it to bounce even high tier guns . The performance of this tank is quite good for its tier, provided that it does not engage in close quarter combat, which is almost certain death for this tank. It has poor acceleration, so any reversal in direction will take some time. As a premium tank, it produces a significantly higher credit income than a typical tier 8 tank. The Löwe was added in the 0.6.4. patch, along with the KV-5 heavy tank.
