I say, its the KV1. Because:

 

☑ NO MOBILITY

☑ NO ARMOR

☑ NO GUN HANDLING

☑ SHAME ON RUSSIAN TECH LINE

 

This tank needs to be BUFFED or REMOVED from the game all together. The KV1 on other similar games, even the PC version is a way more powerful tank.

Seriously?!

It has reliable Mobility, reliable armour, good gun handling, and a star of the USSR tech tree.

I will ignore your comment. I hate this tank. Get this tank out and join me in platoon to see for yourself.

Enjoy the game.

KV-1 is good enough for controlling and carrying the battle alone!

I will platoon with you soon! I love this tank! Half of my victories are due to KV-1 and Matilda. :izmena:

All I can say is that T1 Heavy was probably the worst tier 5 heavy since WG needed to buff it twice! :bajan:

In my opinion the KV 1 is honestly NOT a bad tank and is far more powerful than the REAL [edited] tank which is the Churchill 1 which although it has a decent gun has utterly horrid mobility and the most lacklustre armour that I have ever seen in tier five. The KV 1 has its faults and is by no means perfect but it is a DECENT tank. I do not understand why you have to insult people if they do not agree with you.

I agree with Captain India to some extent.  The KV-1's hull armour isn't what it used to be, and its dispersion is horrendous.

 

How's this for a proposal?

 

  1. Buff the KV-1's hull armour to near the level of the T-150's - (90/75/75)
  2. Remove the top 85 mm F-30 gun
  3. New top gun - the 76 mm S-54 (KV-1S stock gun)
    • (better AP pen, worse APCR & HE pen, 160 damage, better DPM, much better dispersion)
  4. Remove the top M17F engine (the middle V-2K engine has the same 500 horsepower as the top engine anyway, but is more prone to engine fires)

 

This will restore the KV-1's reputation as a very heavily armoured tank - but it will still be balanced, because it won't be OP anymore without its big 200 alpha gun.  It will feel very much like the KV-220 (better gun, worse hull armour).

 

And it will be much more historically accurate!  ;)

Perfect!

I have shown them the stats of how bad this tank is. Still they tend to believe that the KV1 is a good tank. 

I can just laugh at their ignorance and I better ignore them :)

I have one of my Raseiniai’s in the KV1. I thought it was a monster pretty much. Actually, what other heavies are there at T5, aside from the T1?

Nope bro, its still better than the KV1. Its frontal armor is hard to pen at similar tiers. But, Kv1? tier 4s just pen your frontal armor easily.

Perhaps back then when there were not so good tanks in the game. These days, the Kv1 is an easy target for almost anything any everything. I am surprised, tier 4s could pen me easily without any issues :O

I cant pen easy targets, DISPERSION value is so much, cant fire from long range, slow reload (tier 8 tiger has lower reload than this), cant drive fast to help team mates. I have taken down many KV1s' in my T1 Heavy.


Few others are:

 

1. BDR G1

2. Churchill ( both Tech Tree and Premium)

3. T1 Heavy

4. T14 Premium

5. Excelsior Premium

5. Some others ( I dont remember all)

 

I saw the analysis, in recent times Kv 1 perhaps is not as good as it looks on paper. Please look at the images i posted few replies above.

If armour if all that there is to a good heavy, then the boulders on Rockfield are better than any tier X. So why they don't win battles?

The T14 has a pew-pew gun with even less penetration than the Sherman. If they're both poking out with their turrets - as if on hill in Mines - the T14 driver will be the one taking an early shower.

KV-1 used to be stronger, but there was never a time when you could sit still in the mid of the map. I know T1 has been buffed but I seldom play it anymore. The other heavies are worse - KV-1 can be angled some, the others don't, their sides are too weak and their tracks don't help. The only one you're missing is the VK 30.01 which is worse than both Duck and 36.01, tier-for-tier.

Kv-1 used to be a stronk tenk but it’s not a patch on the T1 Heavy these days but realistically none of the other tier v heavies are except maybe bdr...

I’d say Churchill I & III are worse than KV-1 though...

if you wanna play a tier v heavy just play T1 Heavy - they must be gonna nerf it soon

Go to equipment:-

Row 1:

  • Equip Gun Rammer for making reload a bit more faster.
  • Equip DefenseSystem+ for making tank a bit safe.
  • Equip Camouflage Net or Improved Optics for Spotting, Hiding etc. 

Row 2:

  • Equip your choice.
  • Equip Enhanced Armor for making armor a bit more heavier
  • Equip your choice

Row 3: 

  • Equip your choice
  • Equip your choice
  • Equip your choice

Kv1 is trash...gun is horrible except for the alpha.
Mobility is horrible and armour is ok but it takes a lot to make it work...and against prammo, you can't make it work no matter what you do.
It needs a armour buff
