Hi Guy,s

I bought the german vk 75.01 k a german tier 8 tank, in the discriptian in the shop they was talking of a beast of a tank but it isn,t it,s sucks.

I paid to much for this tank..it,s slow(artie)...slow reloud  time..and poor protection on side and rare even on the front the most tier 7,8 tanks pen you.

is this my fold and do i play this tank wrong or not,now my money is gone with this awefull tank.

Caveat emptor.  Online research can save disappointment.

I like it,  completed so many Heavy 260 missions with it. Saying it as poor protection on its side is sooo wrong.

Well, I guess now you learned your mistake?


Never ever buy a Premium tank just like that.


Watch some gameplay videos or look for full review of that vehicle which you are thinking to buy...

While I am sorry that the tank did not live up to your expectations, I really don't know what to say. I mean, the E75 is supposed to have "great armor and devastating weaponry" according to the Wiki, but mine had paper armour and a peashooter for main armament. I hated almost every minute with it. I guess that is experience for you.


On the one hand, you don't have that experience. While your account has been registered for a long time, you only have 4453 battles at this time.


Your highest average damage in any vehicle is only 632 HP. This is despite the fact that this is a tier VIII tank destroyer, and you have a tier IX as well- although this is probably not upgraded yet. I can beat your Skorpion G's average damage with my tier VI Nashorn with 888 HP damage. But these are TDs and we are talking about your heavies.


Oh dear.


Your tier VIII IS-3 has 501 HP average damage. Several of my tier IV TDs can beat that. My tier V Churchill III with a 57mm/6pdr gun has 505 HP average damage. You have three more tier VIII HTs, and while one has to allow for upgrading these regular vehicles, I am not thinking that you are exactly making these work either.


So you have bought a tier VIII HT on the back of some blurb that suggests that it is invincible. This despite the fact that your track record in this game is unimpressive. You have found out that you can't play it, and now you want to cry about it on the forum.


Sorry, but while I do appreciate that these experiences are unpleasant, look at my garage and ask yourself why it isn't full of tier VIII Premium tanks after seven years of playing. There is a reason. Can you guess what it is?

 Never believe what WG says/writes about their tanks, because they make description from stats "on paper" and information they got from sandbox litter box.. they don't play their own tanks, just hire some paid actors to play them on events :)


Ask here in forums before you buy ;)

Tbh, the VK75 isn't as awefull as some people make it out to be.

First a vid where we see skill going ham at it, trying to see what it can and can not do:

And a follow-up video from him:


Now mind you, skill really doesn't like this tank. I can see why he doesn't like it.
