Hello :)

 

Noticed this after i noticed that the T-103 was on sale.

 

Spoiler

 

what i really dont understand is that why does WG make these tanks Premium?

i could forge a new tech tree out of all the Soviet prem TD's

(i dont mind if they are premium as they are way easier to obtain as you can simply open your wallet :coin: ;)  )

my opinion of the tank is that its ugly so im not placing my money on it. 

even if it would turn out to be broken. Looks before Stats is my opinion.:P

 

and you might want to check this one out, if you guys would prefer it over the T-103.

tested it out in the past when i had acces to speshul acc and so far i seen it was pretty horrible, kinda like t28 htc, obvious huge weakspots, armor not that great with bunch "holes" and would only works as top tier, gun arc is pretty awkward, gun not that amazing either. just a turretless kv4 with less armor kinda. needs some buffing i would say if they would be planning to release it "soonTM"

My passion for soviet vehicles was never there to begin with and over time it has been eroded away until all thats left are memes of putin in his underwear.

Looks cool. I want one. I can always use a crew trainer.

It's a KV-4 with 1200 HP and no turret. It looks very bad to me, needs serious buffing to make it even remotely decent.

 

That being said, it's been in-game files for years now, and nothing has been heard about it since then.

how the hell can this thing have -5 gun depression? XD The normal KV-4 even gets only -6 with that huge tower on top.

it's going to be super easy to hit the cupola on top now lol

when?

i've never seen this tank before until today… i thought it must have been brought with the T-103 as the next Marathon tank or something, maybe a mistake when copy pasting files from the RU server. :amazed:

I would say it's in game file by at least 3-4 years. 

Intresting concept, bit my KV-4 is probably superior in every aspect except top speed and DPM.

Still want one...

But the KV-4 TD seems very hard to balance. Has been a T7 prem & a T8 prem in testing. HP also has changed multiple times, along with armor values. Only the gun has been consistent (which shouldn't be a wonder, the KV-4 107mm topgun was its historical gun).

The main reason WG gave when they shelfed it, was that they couldn't balance it well without making the Ferdinand TD obsolete.

 

To be fair, atm most of what we know of the tank can be considered placeholder due to the many changes it went through. Only consistency is that the gun parameters would been similar to the KV-4 topgun, but higher DPM.

I played it a few years ago at an event in London when WG came long with a few computers.

 

At the time when I played it, it was a tier VII. It was horrible given how slow it was. Similar playstyle to the UK tank destroyer line of AT vehicles.

 

You may have only just found it OP, but the basic outline has been in the game files for years.
