I have SEVEN kolovanov :B, in these days I think is harder to get the Tarczay's medal because of the consumables(I have one Billote luckily).

 

I still have my best kolovanov and maybe the best game I ever won.

1 Kolobanov in my E100 but was defending the cap in a 1 v 6 match-up. Feels a little cheap as they ran out of time and if they took the time to aim, I should have been dead as I was fully surrounded. I have 3 pools medals with my max kills in a game at 11. Sometimes it is right place at the right time as I know one of mine was just always getting 1 shot in for the kill shot versus dominating the game. If I remember correctly my damage in one of the pools game was under 3K so definitely nothing special. I did have a Cromwell Pools though that was a total domination. I think it was a 2 vs 7 situation where I got the last 7 kills or something like that.

I don't think you can watch old replays but I remember thinking this was a situation where I carried the game but since someone else was still alive there was no kolobanov for me.

Raider is more rare and harder than kolobanov's I guess.

Got 2 dunno how I did it. ( You must be undetected during the whole battle and capture the enemy base alone).

Kolobanovs should not be awarded for capping (or worse yet, running out the clock on the defending team in an Assault mission).  It cheapens the truly epic Kolobanov, which is awarded for standing alone against 5 enemies and killing them all.  I've got 5 Kolobanov medals, but only 2 of them were the epic variety.

 

And yet the Kolobanov medal is termed as standing alone against at least 5 enemies and winning.  Nothing more, nothing less. 

Perhaps a Kolobanov Class 1 (standing alone against and destroying all remaining enemies numbering at least 5 and winning) and a Kolobanov Class 2 (which uses the current Kolobanov medal standard) would be a way to include your criteria.

Mine was an 11 kill battle where I killed the last 7 alone.

It was the glacier map, I was north in my kv1 and they came 1 at a time...Think it was a 107 on the old kv1

I've never received a Kolobanov but I did win a 5vs1 battle in a tier 6 strongholds once which was a bunch of fun. The closest other than that was in my T95 (which I hate) vs 5 including an arty. I managed to kill 4 of them and had ACPR loaded and decided to reload HE about 2 seconds before I spotted the arty relocating. He screamed across in front of me at about 200m out and disappeared behind a building and then into some bushes before I was loaded. I missed the prefect side shot to save a few credits. Anyway he out spotted me from his bush and killed me. That was before the stun mechanism and robbed me of the Kolobanov's I did however finish TD-15.3 on that battle so I was pretty happy anyway.

One Pool and One Kolobanov was received in the Churchhill 1 in the same match.

 

One Pool was in the M4

 

and One Kolobanov was in the E2.

My win rate is only 48%, but I have one Kolobanov that I got by killing off the other 5 guys.   It was in my RHM.  I barely survived, but I did.   However my favourite Epic medal is Fadins.   That is where you kill the last enemy tank with your last shell.  More pure luck than anything else, but I have two of them.

Fadin's or Invincible are both pretty hard to get, especially in 'regular' play.

 

The thing about Kolobanov's, is that I consider it a big middle finger to the "Don't cap, kill all" crowd. Given how often I see the latter, it does not surprise me that so many Kolobanovs are awarded.

Harder but at that point it's also excessively RNG.  Personally I consider that to be more stars-aligned-RNG than actually hard (as in skill-difficult) to get.  Just as how a Kolobanov via 1v5 assault and time running out is relatively "easy" but a proper 1v5 where you kill everyone is far harder and generally comes down more to skill.

I have one of each but I think the Kolobanov's was a bit harder. My Pool's Medal was simply enemies getting in front of my T26E5 Patriot and I got like 2nd or 3rd place in damage. At least I had to kill a lot of stuff under pressure to get the Kolobanov's but it was still easy. I've been in battles where I feel I did much more but got no fancy rewards. But I'm glad I got those anyway.

Fadin's Medal is also a hard one to get.

 

Destroy the last enemy vehicle with your last shell.
