Just got the troll cannon after getting sick of the long 76mm - was saving the exp for the 107mm - and I have got to say for the first time since I started playing with the KV that it generally put a smile on my face, first match ambushed a PZIV killed it in one shot, killed a IS that was circle-jerking me from 87% - 0% in the blink of an eye and dealt 73% damage to a KV that was hiding behind a rock with a small portion of its hull out.

This set-up has to be tried atleast once, its just great to put a smile on your face after having to put up with the fail match-making.

P.S. does the gun rammer help with the reload speed of the cannon any?

P.P.S Attached is the first game with the KV+troll cannon.

I too must admit that I have become addicted to the Derp gun. The KV has become my favorite tank!!

I tried this today without the Rammer. First tank I hit was an IS 4 frontal shot, took it down to 77% in one. Ended up taking the last shots on an IS3 and IS4.

Incredibly fun. Actually more fun in higher tiers because people do seem to ignore you. Probably be even more fun on city maps.
Just got the troll texture too :P

Yes, the KV rocks even more on city maps, no arty to get you, good cover to hide while reloading, even terrain and asphalt make you less slow, you can setup ambushes in corners, it's almost impossible to get circled ...

I just got my 152mm "DerpKannon" today, and I love it!

First time using it: Got a 77% Panther down to 5% and caught him on fire.  2 seconds later, he exploded.

Second time using it: Got placed as the high-tier in a lower-tier battle.  6 shots.  6 Kills.

It's ridiculously fun!  Anyone who passes up the 152 while grinding the Soviet Heavy tier is going to regret it...

Nothing anywhere else in any tank tree has such massive spike damage so low in the tier.

For every shot it's as good as SU-152 or ISU-152 firing a HE round.

Except it's got a turret  :)

My favourite is when I miss a scout but the splash damage still tracks him and he gets super-destroyed in a couple of seconds.

I've killed dozens of Tigers, too, mainly firing from cover. Is there a "Tiger Tamer" medal or something ?

There is Beast Slayer (ish) medal for killing 100 tanks with a beastly name (Tiger, Panther etc) but I'm not sure it's in yet.

Still working on getting the big cannon for KV. The 76mm gun makes me want to cry.

  I hited all 6 of those on VK 45,with 15-25% dmg each shoot,one of that 2 guys was shooted at 40% and burned to death. Hummel was miss and left him at 5%, and after brilliant performance i missed clean shoot on SU 85 (dont be suprised how bad it can miss) and died. Still 2x VK 45 is not a bad bounty  :Smile_great:  152mm gun is one of most fun to play and with crew on 100% ,and when u master the style of play u can do some rly great damage to enemy.

rebought the kv because i needed something to make me money during my is-4 grind (fully upgraded and 150k xp to is-7)

had already unlocked the turret and 152mm when i 1st had the tank, but didn't like it because i preferred quicker firing guns.

now, having done over 400 battles in is-3 and is-4 with the bl9 (and about 100 with the s70) i'm not bothered at all with long reload times.. i forgot how much the ammo cost was (same as bl9 he), but also realised how much fun it was

1st time out, on pagorki, got a few hits from mediums, 1 shot any medium i saw, ended the round with 5 kills, 2600 xp (doubled) and 55k cr

loads of fun, especially the kv that shot me with the 107, he was on 50% and couldn't run fast enough...bye bye :D

We need to put together some KV Trollcannon platoons.  Can you imagine three of us all with our 152mm's moving around together.  We could gank a T10 in a few seconds.

You know where to find me J-Lo.

PS: My biggest LOLgame today - first, I shoot 74% off a T-44, killing it. Then, I sneak up behind a Tiger and insert a 152mm shell into his ass at nearly point blank: from 100% to 37%, and he burned the rest of the way. Awesome. :Smile-izmena:

I love my KV with 152 it's a real money maker. Last week I didn't have a premium and we lost. But I got 20k credits because I killed a Tiger with 2 shots and a vk3601 with 1 shot.
