I feel like this tank is underpowered when comparing to other tier 6 heavy's like the german heavy or the tank of which every one knows it is overpowered, the O-I

 

The standard tier 6 gun is just plain crap, can't say anything else about it.

 

Tho, I have the upgraded gun; Gun 122mm D-2-5T

 

This gun does good damage, but it still sucks.

The reload time is by far too high, 21 sec with 90% crew.

With this reload time it is pretty much useless in a close combat 1v1 fight, tho, it is a heavy thank so that's what it is made for, to push.

You hit another heavy, or medium/light even, you do quite a bit of damage, 390, but those 20 seconds are enough to get killed by that same tank.

 

Also the dispersion of this gun is terrible, 0.58 if I am correct?

Even at a relative close distance, when I am certain to hit, I have a 50% chance of missing?

 

So the dispersion and the aiming time (3,6s?) also indicate that this tank is supposedly used in close range, but then again, the reload time counter acts this.

 

This all considering it is a very expensive tier 6 tank, you have to get the KV-1 and afterwards the KV-1S which is also T5 and only then you can get this underpowered tank.

+ the gun costing an additional 17K experience, this is also higher than the exp required for most gun upgrades on other tanks.

 

The other gun was out of choice for me, since the follow up T7 tank also starts with the same shitty T6 gun (At T7?) and the D-2-5T gun is available on the T7, the other gun not meaning you would have to spend even more exp to make the tank at least useful.

 

 

If you agree with me please like this post, so the devs might notice it and possibly re-balance the KV-85

Problem with the 100mm is that when you go to the tier 7 you start of with the shitty tier 6 gun again, and the D-2-5T gun is available on that tank while the 100mm gun is not.

Aka a waste of alot of hard earned experience

Dude, the 100mm is one of the best guns of its tier. If you can't make it work you better ask if the problem is between the computer and the chair rather than in the game.

Just mount the top 100 mm. Not being able to mount it anywhere else is no excuse.

i fail to see your logic here? yes you should unlock the D-2-5t on the KV-85 doesnt mean you should mount it, even if you dont use it it still carriesbover to the IS so i fail to see the problem, 100mm gun is the better choice and carries over to other tanks aswell i think so its not entirely a waste.

The KV-85 has bad stats on the 122mm exactly because it was balanced. I don't have it but as soon as my buddy switched to the 100mm he got better games in it.

THE 100MM IS INSANE. 2k DPM is great at tier 6 and 170 pen is good. I ran the 100mm to get the 122 which I'm running on the IS right now. The Kv85 is actually very good. It has good everything, good mobility, good armor, good gun, only thing bad is the gundepression (-3!?!?!?) If they had to buff the KV85 (which might be a good idea, but maybe not...) they should make the 100mm of the IS thesame gun as the 100mm of the KV85. That makes a better stock gun on the IS and a better upgrade option.

Sure!
Let's bring the old tier 6 KV-1S back and have it terrorizing tier 6 battles again!

In my opinion, the changes in patch 9.3 were well deserved.

Expect it doesnt. For some reason its KV-85 exlusive gun. Its not the typical D-10T.

 

You should still research and use it, though.

Repeat: NEVER GET THE 122 IT SUCKS HARD. I mean it.  And hate me for doing so: 100mm on IS>good 122 on IS. Same/better pen,  better accuracy and similar dpm. As said before buff IS by making the 100mm carry over plz!!!

The tank is good but the 3 degrees of gun depression is just horrible the is not really useful in any other map besides city maps because you can`t point your gun to anything. It needs a gun depression buff a little one (to 5) and and it would be so much more useful on other maps aswell.

I sold my kv-85 because catastrophic gun depression tank is no longer flexible it was his only flaw and  WG can not excerpts to her historical facts because it is not cases such at 80% tenkava to be historically accurate
