Chrysler K

The usual American heavy tank always follows the same concept: a fairly weak hull, compensated by a strong turret mounted frontally and very good gun depression angles. Looking at the Chrysler K, however, it doesn't give that impression at all. Instead of hull-down, this vehicle's strength is side-scraping.

Gameplay

Let's take a look at the armour scheme of this big boy. Frontally, it boasts strong, sloped armour, allowing you to endure a ton of fire from same-tier vehicles. Angle your vehicle to further amplify it. Tier IX and Tier X vehicles will penetrate the frontal plate most of the time though, no matter how much you angle it. Here's when side-scraping comes into play. Done properly, its side is capable of deflecting even more than its front but be careful of overangling, else you'll quickly end up in your garage.

Don't get fooled by its size! It boasts an extremely powerful engine under its hood, and while the top speed might not look that great, its acceleration is definitely on the same level as a medium tank. This will help you get to positions quickly, and should be of great use if other vehicles try to get to your sides – they are in for a nasty surprise!

Unlike other vehicles, the gun is not the highlight of the Chrysler K. Overall, it is reliable enough to do its job: good damage per shot, good rate of fire, good accuracy, good aiming time... everything indicates towards it being a good gun. However, that's pretty much it. Also, the penetration value is fair but it will be difficult punching through tougher targets, so a couple of APCR shells are definitely recommended for those.
