Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • A simply apocalyptic 152 mm howitzer can obliterate tier 6,7 and some tier 8 tanks.
  • Unmatched fear factor, can cause pause to even tier 7 and 8 enemies.
  • 107 mm is arguably the best gun, with a ridiculous fire rate for its damage.
  • Almost guaranteed to have a positive credit payout


Cons:


  • Horrible stock grind.
  • Weak armor, huge turret is an easy target.
  • Atrocious reload on the 152 mm.
  • AP and Premium ammo are not as good with the 152mm howitzer.
  • Ridiculously slow


Performance

In multiple ways, the KV 2 is both an overpowered and balanced tank. Its 152 mm gun can one shot equal and lower tier tanks with ease, should it penetrate with HE. However, it is advisable to not use the other two forms of ammunition, as their terrible penetration and lower alpha are not useful with the long reload. However the AP ammo is more than capable for dealing with enemy lights, medium or TDs that are equal and possible lower tier heavy tanks as well. For a more adaptable play, it is better to use the 107 mm as it has a brutal fire rate and amazing penetration in comparison. When using the 152, it is better to press forward and take your shot, then fall back to reload. It is extremely important to stay close to allies, as this tank is defenseless while reloading. When using this gun, it is best to play more of a support role, as you can quickly become a prime target on the front lines, leading to a quick death.
