No armour, terrible manoeuvrability, pitiful gun (as in terrible pen and load time) the lkv 103 has more in common with an SPG than a Tank Destroyer.
Seriously WG, can't you show it just a little love? The grind I've made through all the other nations TD trees combined weren't as painful as trying to level this to the next tier!

lol - the gun is mounted so low, it can't see over the wall in any of the city sniping spots!

You always have a choice not to grind the bushwanking ebola TDs....

Am I the only one around here who actually enjoyed the damn thing???

 

Nothing is more satisfying than derping a big ol' 105mm HEAT shell into the front of a KV-1 at over 300 meters, with a parabolic arch even the Alps would fear.

The lack of a HE shell on the top gun makes it very inflexible.

 

If that would be added i think it would be quite a fun tank.

I made my own hate thread regarding this tank a while ago and yes as backmania mentioned above having HE on the top gun would have been so much better, sadly I didn't find the following tank especially fun either but that's more down to it's RoF and gun handling than anything else.

Idk. I fancied the IKV 103. Not as much as the 65. Not bad at all. Worth it he grind.

Tried top gun on mine but stock is better, as you say no HE on top gun...

Yeh I also not particularly like it atm. still I will grind lines the old way s as there lies no fun in opening up lines either. The goal in the end of course is one of them flat triangular ufo's that comes at t8 I believe. 

 

lkv reminds me of some creature like some vehicles here do but you can't specifically say what creature. a beatle? an anteater?

Are we talking about the same tank?

 

You get MT mobility and tier 6/7 HT alpha.

It's pretty hilarious. It's not great, but it is a ton of fun. Just don't try to play it like a traditional td. I played it hanging around the more city-like parts of maps, waiting for someone to shoot an ally, then pop round, blast someone in the face and pop back again. The thing is mobile enough for that, and fast enough to just relocate to a new corner every once in a while so it doesn't get predictable.
