I like the buffs a lot! :medal:

 

It is now perfectly viable to play constantly again tier 9 :izmena:

It seems to have some kind of force field surrounding its turret, it looks squishy, but it seems to bend the projectile as soon as it gets close.

 

 

quite a frustrating tank to try and kill

Is KV-5 any good after the buffs?

Nope!

 

Weak gun and unreliable armor on a frontline platform that meets tier 9s quite often.

It's still a great scout.

Yes, it's now funny when you meet tier 6s :teethhappy:

Hmm.. So it should be a more fun & meme tank once the MM improvements are done by WG this year :)

The important question with this tank; How does the radio operator feel about the buff?

They did a poll asking all the radio operators about the buff. Sadly, they couldn't reach any.

 

But seriously, with all the super-heavies these days the KV-5 can't compete. It lacks the pen it needs, even on premium ammo. Just a meme-tank.

lol the power to weight buff sounds like it's own game mode. Next April 1st event perhaps? All KV-5's have that power to weight for a day.

It lacks armour aswell.

Tbh KV-5 is still a big box of hitpoints.

It's totally OP - after all, it's not been available since something like April 2016, which is a longer period than the withdrawal of the Defender, so what other conclusion is there? :hiding:
