Got mine about 20 minutes after the patch went up ;)

Nice tank, like an ugly bastard sister of the VK-3002DB :D

Flanking and ramming approved
i immediatly got it after the patch :)

oh well.

IMO the 85mm DT5BM is a better choise then the 122mm U11.

I have some more battles and i must say i like it more :) It is good for trolling tactics. I just let heavy tanks to rotate turrets on me, damage them and escape before they target me :D Always on move.
With second 76mm gun and without premium I gain 50 - 400 exp. If i scout some tanks and damage bit and our team lose, it still earns a bit money. But sometimes it can go minus.

Nice reports, however I think I wont go for the KV13, I'll unlock the T-44 and then the T-54.
And then my WoT grind will end, with all the six Tier VIII-IX mediums.
Good to know that you will have all six Tier VIII-IX mediums. But why you wrote it here????????

Ok, ok, dont get angry. Started making a comparison betwen the KV13 and the T44 choice in the tree .... and ended  off topic.

Apologizes to the OP.

I've gone 1v1 vs a T-20 and an T-43 and lost both times while being fully upgraded. I must admit both times I was in the open and they both had top guns, however I don't thinks it's possible for a KV-13 to win in that situation.

My progress so far.

How's the acceleration and damage on the KV-13? Is it good for its tier, or should I skip it? I'm currently driving a T-44, but It would be nice to have another med to drive around earning credits :)

Acceleration and speed are pretty good. The reverse is insane

THe gun is average. 144mm penetration ,170 damage and 11.39 ROF

I went 1v1 with a T20 and won with half HP left, not sure if it was luck or an off day for the T20. T43 on the other hand has owned me on every occasion lol

Tank_Killer1: i will suggest toolbox for faster repairing tracks and other modules (you can move it to another tanks, after you sold KV-13).

Can the KV13 be played like a T-46 with the 75mm?

i still have yet to see one let alone have a 1v1 with one, but im sticking with my plan of finishing my US and russian med lines (at T20 & T43 atm)then i think ill get a t34-85 again and go for KV13, looks to good to miss

It is magnicficient :D As much fun as the T-46 when you work out how to use it :)

I look forward to the 122 though as it lacks the Derp Im used to in an agile critter :)

I will invest in the 85 though as the speed & and agilty really allows you to dogfight & popshot :)

I think that's the KV's starting gun and remember the Hetzer has 120mm frontal armour.

It's a great tank, and i like it a lot. I tried both guns on it, but i just seem to better like the large HE one (ca't remember size) and drive it like i did my old Sherman tank :)
The smaller gun, just bounce to much for my liking.
But combining the speed, tough armor + HE gun = deadly tank and a lot of fun which surprices a lot of other tanks of all sizes.
