Why do they have no gun depression? I mean, the slightest bump & you cant hit anything on the same level as you. Its the worst thing about these tanks.

for the same reason in certain tank destroyers the gun arch only travels a few degrees from left to right...

 

and that reason is: lack of space inside the turret...  you cant push the gun higher or lower, depending on the design of the turret...

obviously this is a videogame, and WG could even give then -30 degrees of gun depression if they wanted, but thats not the point. 

 

Its completely wrong to rely on the gun depression to play russian heavies, if you do that, your not playing correctly, the KV-1 and the KV-1S (specialy the last) are very good to learn the russian heavy lines, one is an excelent brawler that when well angled melt everything at tier V, the other is a mobile puncher, that teach you how to exploit big alpha guns while not getting hit...

flap maps? Really? The only thing that's flat about WG's maps are WGs sense of humour!

Use the Derp on the KV-1S it gives you -5 gun depression over the -3.5 with the 85mm.

The thing is...
That you are talking about arguably the two most powerful heavies at tier 5!
When I jump in to my KV1 Sport, & am top tier in it!
I scythe through the enemy team!

I did not when I was a noob!
But the KV1 & the sport version are leathal in an experienced players hands!
(Yes I know the S stands for the word medium in Russian, but it will always be the KV1 Sport to me...)

If they had more, they would be even more OP!
