I dont know how to play this tank because i make a mistake to buy it. This tank tier to tier is trash. My advice for u guys is not buy this garbage. Why? on paper sound good on field he is trash.

He has 490 avg damage but he reload at 14.9 sec with vents and 5 skills crew, so its too much (dpm need big improve).  Guys if u thinking to go in front with this tank? u are totaly wrong , this tank has no armour. Side scrap no dont think about this. Meet tier 10 ? u will be smashed by any tier 10 tank. Sniper no dont think like this is heavy u should go in front and fight but how?

My rental worked fine. You have the alpha to trade well on tier 8 and even on tier 9, and armour worked fine, even against higher tier. Are you sure you're sidescraping correctly, angling the turret too? 

Are you taking advantage of your mobility too?

I won mine via WG streams, so I did not buy it. But I still don't hate it. If a long reload is something you hate. You could have seen that before you bought it, even with crew skills via the in-game comparison tool. But vs the Lowe higher pen gun and 320 alpha. My VK still has more DPM vs the Lowe.

 

As for armor? Well much like the Lowe, it's not great in the open. Nor is it a brawler vs equal tier guns to push a lane. As it's no VK B. Most can smack that cupola and lower plate with ease then. But holding a corner, just make sure to take a left-sided corner so you can hide the cupola behind the wall. Vs having it exposed when hugging the wall on the right side out. Then like the Lowe, you can hold it all day.

It's a very well balanced premium. Good trade ability with usable armour that still has enough weakpoints to make you think about your play.

 

Just because it isn't a Defender doesn't make it bad.

I think this tank is really one of the better premiums you can buy. If you fail in this one then maybe high tiers aren't for you.

Absolutely, but it's certainly amongst the most idiot friendly tanks in the game.

 

Point being WG release strong premiums and everyone complains. Then they releaase the VK 75 01k  which, IMO, is a finely balanced tank which is capable of fighting on a good standing vs higher tiers (if you're not a complete fool) and still people complain.

the tank is seems trash, but hey... you bought a heavy with rear mounted turret. What did you expect? You go sidescrap and that's pretty much it.

 

Armor is not horrid, but ain't great either. And pray you don't get an open map which requires gun depression.

 

anyway, it writes on the tag; you like vkb? Buy. You don't. Don't.

Isn't this a poor German version of the Chrysler?

 

Granted it has high alpha but has to live with weak spots and a far lower power to weight ratio.

 

When angled correctly the US tank is almost an invincible lump of steel...

I picked it up for two reasons, 1) I hadn't bought anything for ages and 2) had a voucher that made it reletively cheap.

 

The VK has completed at least 6 of my HT missions for the 260, it claimed back orders from the T55a

 

Its my first rear mounted tank and i quiet like it.

I would say the opposite. The Chrysler K is the poor version of the VK75.01k. The latter has better alpha, pen (on both rounds), comparable frontal armour, same side armour. But because alpha is king, it can actually hold corners very well while Chrysler will likely fail, especially if the opponent can pen your lower plate.

How much better is the pen on the VK compared to the Chrysler K? Just curious...

 

I kinda like the Chrysler ( i suck in it tho...in fact, i suck in every tank but whetever) the only thing that annoys me is the fact that this tank was made to spam premium ammo, which makes it very difficult for a noob like me to damage higher tier tanks. 

 

Unless i win the lottery, i'm not gonna by the VK or any other tank in the shop atm, but the EBR might end up in my Garage.

226/263 mm on the VK vs. 198/263 mm on the Chrysler.

Let's just say I like the VK and I DON'T Like the Chisler....      I have the Chisler Rental with Battles still on it, Sitting Unused, in Reserve, for Barracks Space....      I Bought the 75.01K....

 

I can count on the Gun on the VK far more Often than I can on the Chisler...      Chisler is just Mildly OK, that's about it....      The VK is far and above more Comfortable to Drive, and that Damage Output makes Short Work of alot of Tanks....

 

And Frankly, just between You and Me, the Model just looks Nicer too....
