he calls it mediocre... for some reason, when it has better DPM than Caernarvon, and much better side armor and mobility than most T8 heavies. If a KV-5 rams you, you can't possibly be humiliated any harder. UrQuan knows best and I agree with that creature.

 Most love it for the ramming alone. It's a meme tank, and it has a fairly large fanbase still. Tho I suspect it's not a super effective all-rounder vs most Russian prem HTs of late. Pen was one of the reasons I did not get it "back when it was 167".

Caernarvon has 500 better DPM than KV-5.

Better dpm than Caernarvon? Caernarvon's dpm is over 20% higher. With 220 vs 186 penetration. And a stronger turret, 50 more view range and 50% better (effective) traverse speeds.

TIL The KV-5 Has "better DPM" (this is with the same set-up of Rammer+BiA Only):

 

 

Not sure how to treat this thread btw, since it kinda feels like a name and shame when it's calling out someone directly. I think I'll check on it now and again between games of DRG And see where it goes before making a call though.

Only one way, in this world of rightful forum crusaders, impervious of the 2nd degree humour.

I'll help you : it's a "sexy" tank.

Oh ... wait ... too few ladies on the forums ;)

I don't see any malice behind it...just a conversation starter with a particular person. (or several)


 

Infernal? Why'd you reverse your name? What happened? Your profile post seems to indicate something bad went down with you and the mods on the forum?...

Even though I am a person who is regularly demonized by politicans, sometimes whole governments, I still envy tajj7. Referring to him in a forum topic title to debate about a tank is some next level fame.

I don't think it's supposed to matter whether there's malice intended or not, but that's also why I don't just want to go "Bam!" and lock it like that y'know.

Now I compared them both, cran vs kv-5.

I used everything I used on my CAX HT for cran, and kv-5 to be fair, and.............wait, whaaaaaaaat?

 

Caernarvon:

Different tools for different jobs, and our Urquan is a kv-4 driver not kv-5

WG really need to give some love to these forgotten tanks. When I started watching replays of WOT back in 2015. KV5 was very iconic tank. It doesn't have to be a new defender with buffs. But just to be good enough to have decent chance to survive until the match is over.

You missed a couple of screenshot from UrQuan. KV-4 is his flag tank, but he's really good with KV-5 too. :)

No it's the one you kinda drive backwards so that the R2D2 weakspots are kinda "in the back" and not in the front, works better that way.

I think if you say things like this, you cannot possibly humiliate yourself harder.

Lanrefni probably just had a good string of games in the kv5 and wants everyone to know by creating this controversial topic. Well here is your moment of internet fame, enjoy it while it last.

I won't call this a "fan" tho. :P

And yup, since he mentioned a name on his thread topic.

Just wondering why moderators haven't close it yet. :D
