I've only got 11 battles in a KV-2 and my performance has not been great. I'm wondering what's the best equipment load-out. I currently have Rammer, optics, tool box. I'm wondering if I should swap out optics for GLD?

 

Also:

commander 100% +6th sense +52% Mentor

all other crew 89% primary with no other skills

Gun: 152 & carry 10 bunker busters, remainder all HE

stock suspension, V-2k (2nd line motor), top radio and turret

All you need is the 152 and Stalin will do the rest.

You want to get the reload as fast as possible so rammer, vents are a must. GLD for the slow aim time. Get BIA as your 2nd full crew skill. You can even do it as 1st since 6th sense in a hvy isn't as important as in the other classes. 3rd is repairs. Food if you have the credits.

If you want to be able to snap shot at max distance consistently, I'd go with a 50% crew and no equipment.  Bit of chore putting in a fresh crew each match, but the results speak for itself.

Vents, GLD and Rammer per the others.  Food isn't a bad choice either if you can afford it.

 

I like repairs/sixth first then BIA.  But BIA isn't a bad first choice either, especially with directives if you have them.

 

BIA, vents and food.  :great:

 

I do carry two prem AP rounds for overmatch.  And I've used them on occasion.

 

But the reload time is a big consideration as there's been more times when I would or could have used them, but didn't because of it or tbh I had a reload opportunity and just plain forgot. :P

The derp machine gets better as your crew improves. With BiA, snap shot, and smooth ride the gun is actually pretty reliable. GLD, vents, rammer as everyone else says. I switched my HE to ammo slot 1 for this one. I do carry a couple of the premium AP as heavy metal refers to. They come in handy when you find yourself at the end of a game alone or nearly alone and you know a medium with decent armor and 600 HP is attacking you expecting to tank 350 from your HE and finish you off. I have caught a couple of them by surprise that way. 

 

When Stalin helps you out you’ll pull off absolutely ridiculous shots in this thing. When he goes to lunch, you’ll spend entire battles derping the rock next to your enemy at 50m. One of my favorite tanks. Have fun!

 

Extra: when you meet another KV-2 or KV-2R, aim just below the gun if he’s looking at you. HE splash is a thing. This is the only tank I’ve ever gotten 2 kills with a single shot in.

HE.  And I guess 2 shots each of the others if for some reason you need them as a last resort.

Play style is hilarious since enemies just don't want to go around the corner to face you.  Basically lobbing atomic basketballs of doom.
Every game you blow things up and usually get blown up - no two games are the same and it's loads of fun.
