Ok, so many of you honor the KV-4 with fabulous armor...

 

That suggests that I should learn how to hurt it.

 

Please fill me in on frontal weakspots plz

I had a weird shot at one yesterday with the JagdTiger 88.  My shell hit on the joint of the UG and the track wheel, in the picture above on the UG right above the L in LFP right where the track and the plate marked "Immune" intersect, I was shooting from the front right side of the above tank as you are looking at the picture.  It did the damage and tracked him, I did not think it was possible to shoot through the plates into the track but it somehow worked.

 

Is this possible or just a fluke?

Sigh....don't give out my only weakness...its all i have since i still use the 122....

Track the devil out of it...use at least 2-3 player to flank...they will go down quick.

First shot through drivers slit...they are already slow...but kill the driver and it takes over a min to fully traverse....

Lol same here.

 

All you people who are having problems with the KV-4 look away from this. I need my gun first!

I fought against one in my T28 (with the 120mm gun) earlier.... 4 shots at point blank range, no angling, hit the driver`s port and machine gun port... ALL bounced.

 

RNG just sucks sometimes

if the kv-4 is properly side scrapped there isnt alot to fire at that will cause damage. You will sit there and just knock the tracks off. If he has his turret slightly angled He can bounce alot of shots off of that as well. Making him a block of landscape with a teir 9 gun plugging back.

 

If you find one alone in the open field and you are faster great get behind him, the turret speed is to slow to catch you and you can dance around plugging holes in him,  If the frontal lower plate is exposed its always best to aim for that. I have also had shots fired at me and not pin the captains visor so it could have been do to some angle.  But one match i took over 13k potential damage in one of these.

 

dont travel by your self and side scrap when you can. Hide the front of your tank.

UFP or from the sides and back will hurt it. If it is sidescrapign properly, you will battle, but many drivers, including me in the beginning, would move too far back and expose the UFP. get around it and its toast. It is extremely slow.. so its not too difficult.

i tend to adopt the E-100 / Maus stance with my kv 4 and angle my armor. Very funny watching gold plink away and the ragers get more and more upset and stick there sides out to my fantastic gun.

You mean LFP? The UFP is pretty tough.

Had the funniest thing happen the other day I wont soon forget. I was in my KV-4 angled nicely and an E 25 was shooting at me. I lulz because I could see him progress through his shell types. Started off with AP about 10 times then switched to gold at least 15 shots then switched to HE. He couldn't pen me for nothing.
