IS-6 was OP AF back in the day, I don't think the KV-5 ever reached the same power level.

 

You used to be able to drive in the IS-6 into a bunch of tier 6 and 7s, and even surrounded they would struggle to pen reliably whilst you chewed them up with 390 alpha hits at a very decent DPM rate. 

 

Don't know. In my tier 6-7 tanks I usually prefere to face an IS-6 than a KV-5. Comparable pen, but KV-5 can ram you to death, has better DPM, better side armour and don't have a 20mm engine deck that can be overmatched by any tank it meets.

People on tier 6 and 7 don't know about overmatch (plus you have to be taller or higher up to see the engine deck), the KV-5 is just easier to deal with because of that R2D2, most tier 6s can pen that fairly reliably and it's easy to hit over and over.

 

The IS-6 is pretty much frontally immune to sub 200 pen guns and then even the overangled sides could easily bounce 170-180 pen guns. 

 

DPM difference is 105, whilst the IS-6 is able to two shot most tier 6s. 

 

Personally I have never had much trouble dealing with KV-5s, but the IS-6s are always troll.

As long as you haven't done it before, IIRC you can ask support for a one time restoration of a previously sold premium tank, you must have the credits in your account. 

 

I am pretty sure this is still the case and you don't lose anything asking them.

If WG will buff that KV 5 with specialmatch it would be great but. they will not they will destroy the specialmatchmaking? If Wg do that i will never spent money again in that game. U destroyed that game anyway in the last 1 year.
