    Let's see

    2x Bison for well, being motherfucking Bisons
    1x BT-2 for scouting and general annoying guy
    6x Pz 38H/T18/Pz II

    How about that?


    I'd swap the BT-2 for a M2 Light for its radio, the BT-2 has absolutely no range.
    Fuck the BT-2. Get a T2 light. I never get less than 6 kills with those in a tier 2 only match. Also, they go 72km/h.

    You do realize that it's going to be H38/H35 land right? and a T2 Light can't even come close to killing ether of those right?

    True, but any other tank will be slaughtered. Arty will be their main objective. Once those are down, the H38s will be safe.

    How about some tetrarchs?
    Those could easily fuck up anything thats hard to penetrate.

    T18s and other Tier 2 TDs would far surpass tetrarchs though in general

    Especially considering the T18 is a Tetrarch with 50mm of front armor and the AT-1 / PzJgI have god cannons

    KV-5 getting removed from the shop in 7.5.



    Commanders!

    One of the changes coming with the version 7.5 release is that the Tier 8 Soviet Premium Heavy Tank KV-5 will be removed from the in game store and the gift shop.

    All the players who already own the tank or are planning to buy it before the 7.5 release will keep their tank and will still be able to play it. However, once the update has been released you will no longer be able to purchase this vehicle by any method.

    As a result, the clock is now ticking down! If you were considering purchasing the KV-5 but decided not to - you still have a chance to enrich your collection before it is too late to get one.

    Please note: After the release of 7.5, there is a chance that the tank may be revived for special events or other activities held by Wargaming.net. Any such opportunities will be announced in the news on our website.

    The exact time and date of the 7.5 release are still yet to be announced. Stay tuned for more information

    Personally I think if they were to extract money from the KV-5, they could have just buffed the gun to 107 mm ZiS-24 levels, toughened up the R2D2 a bit, normalized the matchmaking and see the money fly

    God damn.

    That means they gave up balancing it properly.

    Oh well, I still enjoy it greatly as it is. I hope it will hold up against tier 9 mediums at least decently.


    Or, actually, as Orkel says, they quite possibly did it because IS-6 isn't selling well, while being much more expensive with KV-5 being better.

    I love the KV-5 to death, but I would be cautious.

    It's getting buffed, but it's also going to face tier 9 mediums now.

    Also, if the tier span gets thinned and it faces majority of tier 8s, it's going to to get fucked up massively.

    I think something's wrong with me because I'm starting to like T49. Or it's probably because I have yet to get slaughtered with one shot by an IS-3 today.
    Also according to the XVM, my rating rose by 80 during last week. Which is surprising because I have been doing badly most of the time because of the 57mm gun of the TD mentioned before.

    That would be a massive kick in the balls for KV-5 drivers.

    I really don't think the AMX 40 is bad. Most people spend more time bitching about it then actually learning to play it. It doesn't earn much experience(too slow to get anywhere in time), but the grind won't be as bad as some of the other tanks I have done.(Looking at you, paper armor T-28 and PzIII)

    Also, in the Skirmish if we are going to do it I could play AT-1 or M2 Light. I got mastery badges in both, and was pretty good with the AT-1. M2 Light is fun because it has radio range and the ability to move like hell

    I hope not. I really enjoy the KV-5. Saying that, I seem to do very well against anything but T10's. I guess it's cause I generally aim for the lowest plate on the hull on most tanks T8 and upwards and it seems to always penetrate and do damage.

    The DPM went from around 2600 to 2400. Less than the Ferdinand.

    kinda ok with that because it doesn't have ANY armor at all but not ok with it because it reenforces Russian bias.

    I'd like to remind you the Glorious Russian TD also gets no fucking armor at all while the camo is actually worse than the 704. All that while still being slower than the foching Foch.

    It also costs 90k XP more to research for some reason.

    No, I disliked the Pz III. I could never get the hang of it, and didn't do well until I got rid of that stupid derp gun(which didn't happen until shortly before the III/IV). And while it was great fun in Tier IV and lower matches, I always seemed to get high tiers

    Just be glad that you never had to grind the stock bdr without premium, tier 3 gun that cant pen tier 4s in tier 9 matches all day long.
    Worst grind ever.

    I say, don't give KV-5 more pen. Give it more accuracy and do something with the darn RD2D. Either buff the armor on it or make it half the height or something.

    It's quite ridiculous to have highly armored tank and an obvious "SHOOT THE WEAK SPOT FOR MASSIVE DAMAGE".
