This is why I disliked the KV-13 so much.

Though the other day on Mountain Pass I held off 6 vehicles with my M4, because I was playing Peek-a-Boo while hull down.

One would be amazed at how many players that should read this, dont even log in to the forums or read the newsy stuff on the main page. *sigh* Good read tho, Reinforces what I already do know. ^w^
Who know..maybe there should be a mandatory day in each week to read the forums to all nooblets that have a sub 50% overall WR
Wow razzi, you are really full of yourself. I have a 47% win rate, and play exclusively random battle, no clans, no companies, no platoons. Does that still qualify me as a noob? Not that I care what you call me, just taken back by your clannish remark.

Chieftain, if you haven't already, link it right back to the Hull Down article you wrote ...

It should be obvious here, but that article is in a different pigeon hole ...

The result of this is that T-54 will only depress to 4 degrees (5 in the game)

So you're saying you will nerf the T-54 to have 4 degrees in the near future?

lol, some of u may heard of the Depression Angle Limitator, hereinafter referred to as the DAL, whoes purpose is to make sure the backlashing gun breech and cartridge case wont hit the turret ceiling when recoil.........its like a toothed wedge in the gun elevating machnism, and u will have a decent depression angle if have the“devilish gadget”temporarily removed :trollface:  .
  Doubtfully thought if its true, i consulted some ex-crews who fought in type59 (a chinese variant of T-54) during the 1979 border skirmish with vietnam if there any DALs were removed for depressionangle buff. The answers were instantly and firmly given as " yes, almost all crewteams did it; and the only thing u needed was just a wrench.....once u have done, the type59's max d-angle would be at negative 9-11°, which was better adaptive in karst terrain " :playing: " and plus there wanst any case like gun breech hit the ceiling when recoil cuz the it was still far from ceiling  :teethhappy: "
  lol, i wondor if we can have that DAL removed with a comsumable repairkit, just temporarily for a better d-angle :trollface:

Not a bad idea - for that model, and others which are pegged by a similar device.

I am doubtful that removing the peg would achieve anything. Tank designers aren't stupid

Now, if only there was a way to give the KV-1S a gun depression buff with that giant upgraded turret :popcorn:

And, of course, ones where removing the device doesn't cause the breech to impact the turret, as some may be placed at the lower most depression angle.
