Smaller or bigger?
Smaller or bigger?
Can't tell if its becoming smaller or larger.
You're kidding me...
for the most part all it looks like they've done is shrunk the already-impenetrable turret a bit though
SPGs aside, a proposed adjustment for french tanks:
and the new turret size makes it kinda sexier
KV-5 has a 107mm gun. Yeah. 167mm of penetration or so, although the 300 damage is nice. That's really sub-par for how huge of a tank it is. It can't snipe well, but what it does do is act as a great breakthrough tank if people don't nail the treads. R2D2 turret is only a liability at close range or and idle (stupid) driver.
Type 59 has... what? A slightly bad gun? Really? When it gets thrown against tier Vs sometimes, 230 damage and 175mm pen is amazing. It's frontal armor literally has no weak spots and is so mystically sloped that it's really not even wise to bother unless you have well over 200mm penetration. So yeah, you can track them. Most owners have a repair kit on the ready anyways. The Type made my Slugger grind an absolutely horrible experience because they'd often show up in a tier VI match and I'd have no way to deal with them unless I was on the other side of the map and pegging their side armor.
Of all the premiums, Type 59 seems to be the only one to actually reward players for being stupid and rushing in. The way it's armor loves to work, I've seen some players literally just drive it down a heavily guarded path, get an "easy-kill" or three and die. If you do that in a Lowe, you'll get penned by everything in the glacis and side, not to mention huge frontal engine damage. KV-5 will do great until you stop and every fucking thing under the sun blows up your entire tank through that singular weak spot (which literally has less armor than the ass). So yeah. I hate Type 59s. The only time they're not a huge fucking pain in the side is when I'm rolling in other tier VIIIs. Which is rare. And even then, I hate seeing them and their tier IX (acting) armor.
Fucking KV-1S with the short 122 HE gun knocks out my driver and loader with one shot, then my gun with the next one...
I want to point out KV-5s 107mm has shitty penetration, but 2400DPM. That's only 50DPM less than IS-7 and more than for example Maus and 128mm E-100 and MUCH more than any other T8 heavy.
Sure, you can't utilize that at long range, and you need either a lot of luck, or badly armored targets. One thing KV-5 simply dominates at is facing lower tier mediums. It's armor is often enough to make them incapable of penetrating at all so it can simply rummage through whole group of them, while shooting them to death.
KV-5 can easily take on 4 tier 6 mediums and emerge victorious. Lowe would get set on fire, eat shit, and die.
And that's why crit viewing is so satisfying.
On a related note, blasted a Churchill that was shooting at me, and he suddenly stopped shooting. His gun, gunner and loader were gone.
So exactly like the KV-5?
Re bought my KV just so i could use the 152 you guys are in love with..
Sorry i ever doubted you.
And the Jagdpanzer IV is made of luke warm butter.
Nice, these maps are not nearly as flat as I feared.
That thing has 132 penetration. ZiS-8 has 167. Not exactly shining, but can penetrate all tanks but Maus at least from sides, and can as well reliably penetrate all sub tier9 mediums (except chinese hax), while JpzIV struggles to penetrate a Tiger.
Arizona has a jungle i guess.
From what my friend tells me Arizona only has deserts, scorpions, and racist old people.
It pisses me off when your guns can't hit the broadside of a barn, but somehow the enemy guns are able to hit the smallest possible part of you poking out of a wisecave. DIICEEROOOOLLLSSSSS
My KV3 will hit a womp rat at 500 meters when its like a tier 4 or something.
but god knows if the side of a King Tiger is showing, my gunner becomes a retard.
Me in my 80 health KV. And enemy IS at 60% health comes around a corner to kill me. Before he manages to fire, I blast him with the 152, take him down to 30%, destroy his gun, tracks and optics, and he sits there helpless aiming at me while a friendly jagdpanther finishes him off with two shots in the ass.
I had a game yesterday in my 152 KV. I literally could have killed about 5 people if my gun decided to hit, but nooooo, the piece of shit decides to aim higher than it actually is and miss every target every time.
Finally got IS researched.
Got the Tiger(P) yesterday it's pretty nice
I just saw an SU-152 use AP with the 152.
