I have OCD so I have put (permanent) camo on all my keepers (and rental camo on my non-keepers)...:bush:

Maybe not, but just plucking a few with tank names referenced off the top of my head;


Snow White and the seven ISs = December 21, 1937

The Shaggy BlackDog = March 19, 1959

The Legend of Leopard = November 7, 1962

A Tiger Walks = March 12, 1964

Emil and the Detectives = December 18, 1964

The Great Maus Detective = July 2, 1986

The Lowe King = June 24, 1994

The Boys; The Sherman Brothers' Story = November 30, 2010


I feel sure that with the power of the forum other titles can be found linking Walt Disney films to tanks. I also believe that there might be a Churchill or Cromwell film in there, but cannot for the moment think of one.



The Aristotigers II?


And the Cromwell certainly has some potential... since that's named after Oliver Cromwell and Disney's got Oliver & Co. But I can't think up a cheesy enough name.

Some people in the threads already linked to Kandly's comment (thanks for that!), but just to make sure it is clear for everyone:


The camo not working (not giving bonuses) was a bug and today's micropatch has fixed the issue.

I wouldnt recommend it to anyone, Camo looks nice and thats it, Same pile of crapas the regular KV-2. Only bought it because i like Warhammer :'V


- No armour

- No mobility 

- Terrible view range

- Horrid gun, when you hit you still only do like 300 damage for an 18 sec reload, rarely pen. For every one game where the gun actually behaves there is probably 5 where it does the exact opposite

- Horrid MM, Nearly all games are bottom tier.


All in all, add this all together and you got a tank which isnt fun to play, and will make your blood boil. Just a meme factor tank with a sexy skin





Oops wrong KV-2® thread


But it's fun though. Pack like 6-8 premium AP shells too besides HE and you're golden. I find it good enough and not even completed first set of skills. I run it with EGLD, Vents and Rammer. The "special" crew already has BIA and went on my first skills with the gun handling ones on driver and gunner. Tiers 5-6 are mostly one shot. Snipe a bit at the beginning with HE and later go mid to close with AP or HE if they are low health or have very good armor. Never snapshot, always aim and it's a pretty fun tank.

AP are mainly for overmatching (like KV-85 sloped frontal plate) or for paper tanks with high extensions of spaced armour or track. I carry, IIRC, 25/1/30 with the premium AP just to have the round numbers. I use AP mainly as toptier because it remove the risk of hitting tracks or gun and not oneshotting them, but even when matched against high tier tanks you can still try some overmatching shots.
