Another German caricature.

 

Stay away from this tank.

I own Chrysler K to and I gurantee Crysler is much better tank because its faster.

 

Summary.

1.To slow,cant take position in time,cant retreat.

2 .Frontal armor works only against tier 7,which.

 means one in 10 games.When you are spotted,enemy loads gold and you are disposed quickly.You can angle it like champ it doesnt matter.

3.Gun cant hit anything over 100 m.

 

This combination of features makes it very frustrating to play.

 

The way how VK 75 01.k is made shows that developer does not understand current mechanics of their own game because this tank has no compensating features while amor is almost useless.

Looks great, but it is a pretty poor machine. It can be easily outplayed by lower-Tier tanks.

They know only too well; there's method in their madness. Since this tank is pure fantasy, they had all the liberty in the world to make it competetive, but they chose not to because they are catering to their main audience. The Russian community needs German cannon fodder for their Defenders so they can feel good about themselves, and Wargaming is happy to oblige. Buyers are deliberately fooled by the great looks of the tank, the misleading visual resemblance to the VK 45.02 B (which has reliable armour, unlike this thing), and the promise of the highest alpha on a Tier VIII premium heavy (which really isn't worth anything given the lousy DPM and the miserable gun stats). And unlike with Russian tanks, the gun performance really is as bad as the stats say.

Yeah... everybody is waiting for actual special,

I was hoping to have at least discount for consumables, but...but, but...

Every month same fake specials, it was only for crew good one (always useful to retrain and so on).

This is a very bad tank. I just cant make it work. 
No depression, rear mounted gun means you cant peak corners, you cant peak ridges, very slow...
Only sidescrapping, but then its too slow and even sidescrapping doesnt always work (arty, HE, weakspots etc). 

After all dozens of other tanks cant sidescrape without these huge disadvantages...

Again personal reserves as reward, we have tones of them.

How about discounts on tech tree tanks sometimes?

Yes you can 

It makes the tank around 25€.

I was considering it also but... Everyone seems to think this tank is trash, and it's true that you don't see them very often on the battlefield...

it is trash, you think it would be a good sidescraper looking at it but it has a very weak turret so that option is out, coupled with bad accuracy bad aimtime and glacial reload time no gun depression and bad mobilty this thing really has nothing going for it.

no wait thats not true, it looks very good.....

 

i got it first time it got out, traded it in first time i got the oppurtunity

The big, dumb brother of the Panther 8.8. I got this when it first launched, I thought it was a bargain at the time, little did I know that it both sucks, and swallows!

 

  • Dispersion is terrible, soft stats even worse, you'll struggle to hit a fully exposed, stationary Skorpion G at 250m
  • Mobility and vehicle/turret traverse is horrible, even medium tanks can outmaneuver your gun with ease
  • Reload takes forever, and even high alpha heavies like the IS-3 can out trade you 2 for 1
  • Already poor DPM is much lower than the stated value, as you will struggle to hit and pen your targets, on a good day you'll pen 2 out of 3 shots
  • Armor is deceiving and very unreliable, the turret sides can easily be penned from a 65% angle (If you look left or right they shoot you in the turret overhang)
  • Upper deck is only 40mm, and you're basically a big juicy bullseye for arties to feast on.

 

Please do not buy this tank, the price seem low for a tier 8 heavy but there's a very good reason, as ToodlePips already mentioned, I think this tank was released as a bait tank to make other tanks seem better. For the price you're far better off buying a decent medium tank. I think even the T-54 first prototype will bounce more shots than this turd on tracks.

seeing how WG does things recently, the 10k XP rewarded are actually the ones you earned, meaning you get 10k in total, not 10k+10k extra XD

 

what's next? Unlock a tier 8 tech tree tank to earn the ability to purchase that tier 8 tank for credits as a "reward"? :P
