    As a KV-5 owner, it's only good with aligned stars and heaps of know-how.

    When you know how to utilize the beast correctly: You will annihilate anything with weak spots or poor armor due to the RoF of your 107mm.

    If you get unlucky, frisky or do something wrong: You get fucking wrecked due to maneuvering like a shit bucket and having 1/4th of your frontal profile being a weak spot.



    To be honest, I enjoy it more than my Lowe. Faster, better damage-per-minute (if you can pen) and it makes a hilarious rammer. Not saying the Lowe is bad, but mine is just cursed with the absolute worst teams.

    The KV-5 at least can enjoy the hilarity of 400-700 damage rams, and killing a tracked scout or AMX 13 series outright.

    The QaA mentioned side skirts.

    I wonder if I could buy side skirts for my R2D2 exclusively.

    [SUB][SUB][SUB] KV-5 has better winratio among top players than Lowe and generally is very high, for example just under E-100. It's not bad tank at all, just hard to master, but don't tell them, I need people to think it's really underpowered so it gets buffed more[/SUB][/SUB][/SUB]

    I will tell you what. It would fall through the ceiling of the superstructure which is not built for that.

    If you added necessary reinforcements, there would be no space for the Ferdinand's gun.

    And even then, the suspension would just break.

    Edited:

    Realize the KV-2 turret with 152mm weights over 12 tons.

    Now you got yourself another abomination of underengined T95, but without the armor.

    Edited:

    (it's hilarious, tho)

    Edited:

    I hope you don't mind I join you



    I expanded the superstructure over whole length of the hull so there is enough of proper space for Ferdi's gun and perhaps a bit bigger engine after a bit of module shifting.

    Decided to buy the Pz III, grind to the next tank, then grind to the Hummel, instead of use the Grille. That's how bad I hate the Grille.

    Anyway, the Pz III just blew me away, I don't remember it being so good

    Victory!
    Battle: Fjords Saturday, May 12, 2012 3:30:03 AM
    Vehicle: PzKpfw III
    Experience received: 1,794 (x2 for the first victory each day)
    Credits received: 15,558
    Battle Achievements: Mastery Badge: II Class, Sharpshooter, Scout, Steel Wall

    I took 47 Hits and still survived.



    Got tracked and just sat there with about 6 guys shooting me non stop. Shame really, I equipped the lighter turret and the lightest gun for speed, and spent basically the entire match tracked

    PZIII is pure bliss after PZIIIA.

    I have 63% winrate on it. It's T-54 of tier 4 matches.

    If you get fucked badly by matchmaking you can always at least scout.

    If you end up in tier 4 match, you ding everyone's shells and blast them to nothing.

    Just scouted since It was a pretty bad MM for me just now. Came up to their Priest with the 10 round Semi Auto gun and just melted his health. I'm giggling like a school girl

    Ferdi's hull with doubled pornsche transmission and expanded superstructure, E-100 glacis and side skirts, two 105mm guns in the superstructure, two Panther turrets on sides of it armed with probably 75mm or something and one KV2/152 on top.

    Made a logo for the FP EU clan. Mixed the german panzer division shield with the FP logo, which fits a tank better than the current plastic badge imo. Small details will get lost anyway so i kept it simple. I will pay for the 500 gold if we decide to change it too, although im not sure if i can change the logo with my rank in the clan?

    Logo on a green metal background:


    Logo shooped on a tank:


    The image that should be uploaded:


    The white has 70% opacity so it will blend with the tanks metal better.

    The major flaw with this design is the Porsche engine/transmission.
