As the title says which gun do you use on your KV-13? The best 85mm penetration gun or the HE 122mm gun? I must say that I like them both, 85mm is excellent for flanking an enemy, but the 122mm is good for making some damage to even higher tiers. And with the current matchmaking you face higher tiered tanks a lot.

I honestly like the 122mm a bit more since it can one-shot-kill smaller tanks and is capable of doing damage to higher tiered tanks. The thing is that I'm always playing with my friend so the 85mm should be optimal for us since we can easily choose a target and flank it together. I'd say we are doing "quite well" with both guns, but my friend prefers the 85mm a lot more...

So am I the only one here who likes to use the both guns or is the 122mm actually "garbage"?

i only used the 85mm, and it was fine for me, i dont like slow firing guns on medium tanks, and derp guns are mweah aswell.

the only tank`s for which HE is usefull are KV-152, Su-152, and m4 with 105, all other tanks are (imo) better off with normal guns

I see. Thank you for the reply. I think I shall continue to use the 85mm and occasionally switch to the 122mm if I feel like it >_>

122mm Derp can derp some herp at very very close range only, and can only herp once every few derps. Herpaderp.

The 85mm lacks penetration but apart from that, it can do pretty much everything, at any range, absolutely derp free.
