So I'm loving the KV-3 so far with the 107, but I was wondering if anyone had gone with the 100mm gun and preferred it. The damage difference is less than 10% a minute in favor of the 107, but the 100mm has slightly better penetration. Any one have really strong opinions one way or the other?

I think everything important about different guns for KV-3 is said in "To all KV drivers"-thread.

The 100 is also more accurate and has faster targeting.
I've only just got my 100, after reading the thread that SgtBudde is talking about.
My first impression of the 100 is it's not so great in comparison to the 107, but most people seem to prefer the 100 so I'm going to give it some time.
I also tried the 122 and found that the slower reload with such a slow moving tank doesn't work out well - So much goes into each shot that you have to get close to maximise your chances of hitting, charging in a KV-3 doesn't end well. Of course, I could have tried camping/ambushing more, but I don't find that to be fun.

SgtBudde is correct. This has been covered in depth in the thread To all KV drivers. Please refer to that thread (all 10 pages of it) and ask any further questions in that thread.

To answer the OP's specific question please refer to this post (tooting my own horn a bit here): 107mm vs 100mm


Closing this thread for now.
