This tank is useless. Purpose of premium tank is to earn money not to burn money.

This tank is the reason we got the Fochgate scandal, but its not OP like the Obj 252 (Defender). As reminder the visuals appearance is not in line with the armor model, visual weak point not actual weak point present on the armor model in the front (link to tanks.gg). That standard penetration is garbage. I like to play premium tank for credits and crew, but also for fun, but I don't like to shoot premium ammo all the time.

 

I would like the option to rent the tank onetime per account in order to test it before buying it with real money. Reviews are fine but at the end of the day my play-style is different...

Another one to skip, quite bad unless used in a town.

I have Chrysler g and not enough standard amo 198pp with tier 10 but with gold amo is okay... premium tank should make credit not just milk....

"perfect choice for side-scraping tactics"
Nope! You can't sidescrape with that thin side armor!
To sidescrape enough to protect your front hull and fire you expose your weak side!
The only time this tank is good is when you get to hide the entire hull behind a dead wreck!
And then we complain about it's pen! Just because you can put some paint on won't change it's battle effectiveness!

Again, like others, this tank ain't great unless you want it for the collection!

Oh look, the Pay to Win tank is back on sale.

 

The driver needing to load gold to penetrate anything and the enemy having to load gold to penetrate the Chrysler.

The only one winning when you buy that tank is Wargaming folks, don't fall for it. You are not that naive and stupid.

Easy: Still don't fix it. ;) 

 

But tbh this is just a badly designed tank. If you're thinking about buying this only for dtrobhhost I could understand some of it. I would not play this tank in randoms, especially when you will be facing the 2+ pretty much all the time..

You want to train american heavy tank crews? Buy a SuperPershing and start using it, it's pretty much a heavy tank disguised as a medium and it's crew needs the same skills as a heavy tank. You can train all 5 crew members for it, and you'll only need 500 gold to retrain them for a heavy tank. (on a training discount day, of course, which are plenty a year)

You can farm credits as it's PMM, and is a lot cheaper then american tier 8 premium heavies....and much better too.

So, is this thing good or not? On paper it seems OK, except for the pen, but it's not the worst stat either. I need a good American premium heavy - is this worth buying?

F*ing finally getting rid of that disgusting looking logo in the front ! Anyone that might be interested in this tank, think twice it has 198 standard pen and sees tier X a lot

Ah yes, the Chrysler K... The tank that manages to be disgustingly overpowered and underpowered at the same time. A tank, of the extremes.
You get armor that is filthy OP vs anything up to tier 8, but you will be torn apart by anything above and you get a gun that would work fine for you when you plow through helpless lower tiers yet, will struggle vs even some tier 8s... That is a shining example how NOT to balance a tank, a well balanced tank should feel competitive vs high tiers while not being invulnerable to lower tiers, and the Chrysler K somehow manages to both be a joke vs higher tiers and absolute annoyance vs lower tiers.
I don't have the tank, that are simply my observations from fighting against it, but in any case, if you need US heavy, buy a Patriot, it is much more enjoyable and not completely broken.

I own both the Chrysler K and the Defender .. it is not a Defender. (The polish 50TP is closer to Defender).

I kinda like the K ... but don't expect to make credits. It is gold ammo or no penetration with this tank.

 

I don't play a lot with it lately .. but I like to have it in my garage. It is my batmobile, you know.

 

If WoT fixes the problem with tier 8 been cannon fodder for tier X, then K may actually be a whole lot more fun to play.

 

If you look for a premium to make credits get a Lowe or a Scorpion G.
