Is there any real point in keeping the t150? Is there any real advantage on it over the KV-2? Because i'd rather sell the t150 and keep the KV-2.

Any input is appreciated! :Smile_honoring:

KV-2
- Faster firing 107mm
- More HP
- More Hull Traverse Speed
- 152mm Option
- Less Armor
- Less Turret Traverse Speed
- Giant Box Turret / Giant Target
- Less HP Engine
- 6 Crew Members (Can be a plus or minus depending on opinion.)

T-150
- More Armor
- Lower Profile
- Greater HP Engine
- Faster Turret Traverse Speed
- Slower Hull Traverse Speed
- Slower firing 107mm
- Less HP
- 5 Crew Members (Can be a plus or minus depending on opinion.)


Basically boils down to whether you think 50 more HP and .58 RPM more is worth being a slightly less armored, giant slow moving box. Personally I'm probably going to keep the T-150 over the KV-2.

T-150 if you wanna 107 people in teh face.
KV-2 if you wanna lob 152mm coconuts around.

Forgot about the 152mm. Updated my post.

I'm keeping both, since they have different purposes in my opinion. T-150 is a better skirmisher and medium range brawler. The 107 is a good fit for the tank, albiet I'd like to have seen a faster reload.

The 152 derp on the KV-2 is a death sentance when shots are well placed, even to higher-tier tanks. But its a specialist tank and gun in that configuration. Best to have these in a team with a skirmisher tank, or other KV-2's. 152 reload is abysmal.

I love the 107 but despise the monster box turret (which is why I love the su-85 so much) so I decided to try the T-150. Only took it out for a few rounds today and really was surprised, I like it. So, I ended up selling the KV-1 and KV-2. Keeping the T-150.

I sold simply because i don't think it would be worth upgrading. The fact that the M6 has more armor really dealt the finishing blow, id rather use my KV-2 derping monster and just get the free creds and tank slot from selling it.

Honstly the KV-2 is quit uesless but you might want to keep it if you want to go for the S-51. And if you have the KV-3 already you can completly skip the T-150 cause the KV-3 can use a tier 7 and 8 gun. The reload time is long but you get a nice penetration ( you have a fair chance against anything below tier 10 ) and a very nice damage, nice damage = nice sliver.

I sold the T-150, keeping the kv-1 for now because ive got 40k unused xp on it and it can unlock the S-51 maybe one day. Kept the Kv-2 because of the derp and kept the KV-3 so I unlock Kv-4 one day.

Yeah i used some free xp on the t150 to upgrade it and try it out with the 107, first match bottom of the list tier 10 match..... FML so i gave up on it for the night we'll see yet. I have about 45K in xp on my kv-2 yet which i kinda wish was on my kv-1 cus then i would sell my kv-2 because the only reason i kept it before was to try and elite it well the kv-1 is now so i don't need the kv-2 lol and i need the creds more lol i have too many tanks anyway :lol:

KV-2 useless? Its a non-premium ATM, every 30 seconds something dies...sometimes its them..sometimes, its you.
I've made as little as 2K after repairs and as much as 30K after repairs...all the same tank. Its a hoot with derp!

I'm going to wait a week to see just how valuable the KV-3 remains while I grump they gave my old 300% crew to the T-150 not the KV-3 before I probably sell both the T150 and KV3

Don't forget about the KV-1S, the other tier VI Russian heavy

Pros -
- Gets similar turret armor
- Has much greater top speed and traverse speed
- 122mm alpha is trollolol fun

Cons -
- Hull armor similar and slightly worse in the side compared to kv-2
- 122mm shells are $$$ and fires relatively slow (great for a point blank surprise though
- Power to weight ratio still similar to to kv-2 / t-150, i.e. you accelerate slowly

Im keeping both for now. The T150 is the better tank in my opinion but the KV2 with Derp is good for LOLs once in a while.

See http://forum.worldof...f-the-kv-2-now/ KV2/T150 both useless in their current tier.

My personal opinion is that the KV2 is a more well rounded tank than the T150 for its tier.

I'm keeping T-150 and selling KV2.  I never use the 152 gun, and T-150 is better armoured.

Of the updated KV line I think the T-150 has impressed me the most.  It's definitely a completely upgraded KV-1 in every way.  It's my favorite so far.  I'm running it elited with the 85mm.

I was never a big fan of the KV-152 anyway.
