[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

5950

The KV-122 is a Soviet tier 7 premium heavy tank.

Prototype of the KV-122 was created in the spring of 1944 by the Construction Bureau of the Chelyabinsk Kirov Plant on the basis of the KV-85 and differed from the latter in a turret with a 122-mm gun. The turret was copied from the IS-2 designed in 1944. After the production of the IS heavy tanks started, all work on the project was discontinued.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good alpha damage
  • Good speed and mobility for a Russian heavy
  • Better gun handling on its 122 compared to other Russian heavies
  • Surprisingly good traverses, very agile
  • Decent view range for its tier


Cons:


  • Low rate of fire, substandard DPM
  • Weak hull armour, fragile tracks
  • Small health pool for a Russian heavy
  • Slow shell speed, ranged combat is difficult
  • Low ammo supply common to most Russian heavies using a 122mm gun


Performance

Compared to the other Russian Tier 7 premium tank, the IS-2 Berlin the KV-122 trades a lower rate of fire for improved accuracy and gun handling and weaker hull armor for better speed and maneuverability. It is very similar to a KV-85 carrying its 122, except that the KV-122 has notably better rate of fire and gun handling than the KV-85.

The KV-122 is oddly similar to what the KV-1S was ages ago; a surprisingly fast and mobile heavy with a terrifying 122mm gun, trading a slightly weaker armor profile for the privilege of massive alpha damage. While the KV-122 is still a terror to any unfortunate tier 5 vehicle that encounters it, it is far less powerful when placed in a tier 9 matchup.

The KV-122's hull is identical to the KV-85 and inherits that vehicle's weakness, in the form of a flat and thin upper plate that is easy to hit. The 75mm plate can only present roughly 100mm of armor when angled, which is insufficient in a tier 7 battle let alone a tier 9 one. The turret front also suffers from this problem, as while the turret is well rounded, the gun mantlet does not share any coverage with the turret's actual armor. This plus its large cupola demand that the KV-122 be played in a supporting role rather than a brawling one. Lacking the protection to deflect higher-tier enemy fire, it must use its superior mobility to move around enemies and punish them with 390 points of alpha damage per shot, pulling back to reload and punish enemies again. In this way KV-122 is less of a pure heavy tank and more like an oversized medium, thanks to its better-than-average power ratio, traverses, and terrain resistances for a Soviet heavy. Flanking shots also mean that its mediocre penetration is not as much of an issue against weaker side or rear armor.

As a result, this tank is something of a glass cannon and must be supported by its teammates, allowing larger or more resilient allies to absorb shots while it rolls forward and blasts a hole in the enemy. While its gun handling is better than its other peers using a 122 gun, it is still breathtakingly mediocre compared to other members of its tier, requiring care to effectively use its high alpha damage to its advantage.

Equip a gun rammer as soon as possible, as it saves 1.27 seconds of time off the reload. Vents can bring the reload down to just over 11 seconds and provide a DPM of around 2100, while vents plus a gun laying drive will bring the aim time down from a lengthy 3.07 seconds down to a somewhat more tolerable 2.7 seconds. A more support and survival oriented player may elect to equip a toolbox or spall liner, but this choice is uncommon and most KV-122s encountered will be set up to support the gun.

Investment in the Repairs crew skill is highly recommended, as a major weakness of the tank is its tracks. The tracks are weaker and easily broken compared to other heavies in its tier, as it uses the KV-85 tracks instead of the tougher IS tracks. Since this tank relies on its mobility to survive, it cannot afford to remain exposed for long.
