I thought the Chrysler K was a gold magnet trash tank until I saw this vid;

 

 

Ironically, Leopard's message is that the vehicle is not OP and is actually a way for WG to increase prem ammo usage and as an extension increase profitability.  I notice that towards the end of the clip, Leopard is brawling one on one, and the Chrysler has great P/W and traverse rates.   Notice he is able to bait shots and switch angles easily.  This looks like fun.  I figure that the well armored vehicles you face and Leopard states you will need prem ammo to pen frontally should be at a major mobility disadvantage.

 

What I want to know is; is this tank an awesome brawler?  I don't brawl in any of the bush kemping redline sniping tanks I favour, and I think this might actually be a fresh and fun change of pace.

I don't remember ever seeing any decent Chrysler performances in battles. It's bad, it does not bring fear to the battlefield and it's just "there" in battle.

Same, but there it is in the clip looking damn good!  I am wondering if it just being overplayed by noobs.

People always mention the patriot and the Libertie, neither of them are overpower either, still like the idea of it, and what one streamer thinks of it is of little regard to most players, if you have it, you have to make it work, you cannot emulate others as each battle is different.

Chrysler is an awesome brawler, frontal armor is great, gun is responsive and got enough gold pen to be effective in tier 10 battles.

 

Rear mounted turret makes it a bit situational like every other vehicle like this. Hilly maps are not that good for this tank.

 

P/W ratio makes it very agile although the top speed is limited.

 

The only major problem with the Chrysler is that it doesn't make credits because it rely heavily on shooting gold. When top tier, which is rare these days, the AP pen is enough for most targets.

Compare it to most t8 tanks and it for sure is OP as hell.

Besides the fact it's a gold magnet and requires prem ammo spam by the player, it looks freaking ugly. Would not play this thing.

Playing Frontline I found out how good the Chrysler K is, it was the only tank that made me retreat when 1 vs. 1. No way to damage it frontally with tier 8 tanks when it is used properly. Will probably buy one if it becomes available in the shop again.

Chrysler has good armor but the same bad gun is T32. 198 pen in T9 and 10 is never enough and it always has to fire gold. On the other hand the armor is strong and other people have to shoot gold at it. So Win-Win for WG

The point was you need premium ammo to damage it and when using it need to fire premium ammo to damage everyone else.

When Frontline was on, which was all Tier 8's, I didnt see very many and they were not OP.

Players dump every heavy that has relatively weak armour into the viable 'heavium' category, so why can't a heavy tank with relatively weak pen but the great mobility of a medium be categorised the same way?  I would try it that way before a 50t.

I know brawling against one in a Ripper Patton is not! :teethhappy:

Look at it this way...

 

"Heaviums" have poor armor but usually good penetration. Chrysler using gold ammo have both.

 

Would be a waste not to use that armor against the enemy heavies.

My point is that the mobility and angled well armoured characteristics of the tanks seem to make it capable against low pen AP and high pen HEAT when manoeuvred well during brawling.  I figure that you would meet that opposition most when facing mediums.  When facing heavies and just mindlessly scraping against them, you are likely to face a mix of ammo, including HE from some heavies and arty focusing the heavy chokepoint.

That's true and definitely worth a try.

Also, I forgot; the crappy low pen AP would have more pen potential.

I bought this tank when it was first released and despite being a good tank, it was a painful experience. The hate was real because of the fochgate thing, team damage/kill was literally every other battle. I had to leave it for a while till things cool down a bit! :)

I've seen them ingame a few times and Im not especially impressed. The only thing it had going for it is the armour, and armour is mostly useless*

 

 

*higher tier tanks can just shoot straight through it, while same and lower tier tanks just dab the 2 key and THEN shoot right through it.

I find that interesting and a little disappointing.  I don't know why I am still surprised by player behaviour in this game.

That is why I am curious if anybody has experience mitigating HEAT by baiting and manoeuvring the armour.

Its not OP in money income. 

Its OP in performance if you have money for gold ammo. 

How hard can it be to separate this? *edited*
