My tier 5 TD (swedish ikea 103 thing) with 120pen HEAT. is supposed to go threw that? i just shot 100% aimed at kv-1 side 3 f**** times and it did 0 damage track shots. im a TD not a f**** arty, im not made for assistance im suppsoed to have 120mm penetration!!!! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU PLAYING AT WG?

 

Edit: while im at it. why does this tank even exist when tanks like PZ4H is better in every aspect with a turret? not that bright are you WG.

Why did you shoot tracks if you know how HEAT works?

You suppose i shoot the pixel above the tracks at a distance? hmmm? or maybe the tier 6 armored turret that will bounce the 120mm heat because rasha BS armor?

Oh. So weakspots on KV-1 are too small, but that single pixel at the front of O-I is large enough? Or you finally stopped pretending that Jap HTs are unbalanced?

Because I still remember how you called me statpadder when I said that pre-buff Type 5 is OP. Entire line is broken and OP and should have never been added.

That escalated quickly. Meanwhile, Maus is still fair and balanced <3.

KV-1 has the same side armor as it has on the front. Together with the tracks it can quickly exceed 120 against HEAT.

that isnt really the point right ?

 

you just dont shot at tracks or spaced armor if you have a HEAT shell loaded and thats completly unrelated to Kv1 or its tracks or its turrets or frontal armor

The same will happen with pretty much every tank that has large parts of its side covered by tracks because the Ikv 103 has such a high arc of fire & slow flying shells with its howitzer coupled with 0.4 dispersion which doesn't help you much in your pixel sniping efforts. The only difference is that the KV-1 is propably slow enough for you to actually hit in the side at medium range where as others have moved 3-5 tank lenghts forward by the time your shell arrives in its destination, leading shots is also pointless because the howitzer will calculate the distance over the terrain and derp the shot way over your intended trajectory.

 

My favorite part about the Ikv 103 is how you get to curl up in a ball and die against higher tier heavies without having any real chance to fight back. The only place you can pen an O-I is the unangled flat upper side of his hull, since below that it's only spaced armor & tracks and anything else is 150mm while you have 140mm penetration with your premium ammo. But soon enough someone will appear on this topic too to rave abour how having 300alpha on tier V makes this TD a great one, ignoring that SU-85 has a great 85mm gun and can mount a 122mm that has the same 140mm pen with 370alpha HEAT & 450alpha HE shells.

its a bad td i wont argue on this with you still the topic is really stupid

 

nerf tracks ? as long as there are tracks they work like spaced armor  so HEAT wont pen. no nerf gonna change anything

 

as for the HEAT there is still a HE gun ... and why is it the kv1 that need to be nerfed when its the same with every other tank?

Search_Warrant has a point. That HEAT bull**** really handicaps this tank. Long aiming time+HEAT mechanics+low velocity = a recipe for a "masive fun". I think I did OKish in this tank overall but I remember than on more than few occasions I waited for KV-1s or other tanks to show me their front because HEAT. And you can't shoot people through destructible obstacles. Even a lamppost can save your enemy. I guess giving it AP would break this tank, right?

Right out of luck mate. Fertilizer happens. Try one in the turret I guess next time.

Why are you shooting it in the tracks and not in the turret?

 

Cobra 6

Cobra 6

 

Its the IKV 103 - you don't aim with it, you point your gun in the general compass direction of the enemy, fire and hope it lands somewhere in the same postcode. The fact that search_warrant hit something is a miracle.

 

The entire tank baffles me - you have slightly worse armour than a DHL delivery box so "don't get close". But you have a derp gun that has the same accuracy as a first gen GPS.. ...with no satellites working, so "better get close!".

 

I'm on the T4 swede right now and looking forward to this tank about as much as violently inserting a pineapple into an orifice that I won't mention.
