The armor on the beta gift tank is pretty impressive for a Tier 5 medium, but good lord is the accuracy on its gun atrocious.

That KV-5 looks pretty tasty.  I don't know if 167mm of penetration will still be acceptable on a tier 7, though.  My IS's 175mm penetration works pretty well, so I guess it would still work.  My only other misgiving would be that incredible height.  Looks like it's not much higher than the KV-2 turret, but it's even broader and longer than that.  Hmmm... If I *am* going to get it, it'd be best to preorder some gold, but I don't want to shell out for a giant dud!

Same as the 122mm gun on the IS. It's something I can live with as long as the damage / penetration is good  :)

KV-5 looks crazy. So much armour at T7, if it is ever the top tier... T6 and below will find it very hard. Basically like a Maus.

At least its as slow as a Maus too though... 16 degrees for both tracks and turret, is that a record or something? 8 HP per ton.

Because its kinda weird that the French tanks were announced for quite a while now and we havent seen a single picture of the French tanks (Except for German Premiums)

Nice I'm going to enjoy having that M4A2E4 in my garage.

Is the KV-5 going to be the equivalent of the Lowe and M6A2E1, or will there be a Tier 8 Russian(Premium) heavy as well?

The french tank will be released after the US td line, so not before a couple month.

Yeah but the official recognition of implementing French tanks into the game was from October 12 2010 in this post http://forum.worldof... been revealed:

Apparently 6 months later and NOT a SINGLE in game photo of a French Tank (Except for German premiums)
