Yay! One of my favorite tanks in-game!

Pride of the Fatherland! :Smile-izmena:

Very informative, I learned much more from this video, many thanks.

A definite keeper- elite it out and it will never be an option to sell it cause you like it so much.

This kind of thing could be really good for the casual/new players, especially the part where the tank's relative strengths and weaknesses are highlighted. In other words, "no, you cannot play your KT like an IS-3!"

Experienced players can and likely will dispute some things (especially the crew skill advice), but the advice for dealing with flanking fast tanks and facehugging heavies is great for helping players who need to improve in the basics.

All in all, good work (very well put together), looking forward to more! Here's hoping the players who rushed to tier 8 take a look at this...

Do some on tier 10's. Like the Maus because many people have trouble with it and complain.     :Smile_Default:

Because there are people like me who have some experience, but don't know all the nuances to playing some tanks or specific tactics.


Very informative, WG - thank you.

Error in the video regarding penetration. It says the highest is 232, so the KT scores a 9. Forgetting that the Lowe's is 234 and the T34's is 248 average. Unless they weren't taking premiums into account.

Other than that, good video. I really liked the KT back when I climbed the german tree in beta. Lots of changes have come to it since then, though.......

At 2:50 the front hull armor ranked a 5, but was listed on the left as a 6.

In the video, when they say they are comparing the KT to the other T8 heavy tanks, they show the Lowe and the T34 along with the rest.

that Conqueror probably stock, not using top gun, not full HP or controlled by a really bad player. KT stand no chance in a fair 1v1 fight with a elite Conqueror that have a decent player controlling it. as Conqueror have far better damage per shot, RoF, Pen, HP and only lack armor. (KT armor mean nothing to the 120mm L1A1 anyway)

WarGaming.net is hands down the best gaming service ever. These videos are not only highly informative to noobs and even pros, but they are also entertaining and easy to understand.

I can't wait to watch all the videos for WoT, and I especially can't wait to watch all the ship videos for WoWs.

Thanks!

This is a way better video than all the other ones. I would like to see future videos made like this.

the low armour ranking is puzzling. KT has very good armour.
