I was wondering if I should get the ISU-152 or the KV-4. I was thinking the ISU-152 because I have been playing the SU-152 lately and have been doing great in it ,but I have been doing great in the KV-3 also so I don't know which one to get.

So you only have credits for one of the two.

I would say whichever one you were most used to. Whether that's the SU152 or the KV-3, I don't know.

Not credits, I want to use the free xp from the free xp vault.

ISU 152 is one of my favorite tanks to play. Before you unlock it though, you need to make sure you have enough free XP to unlock its big gun. That alone is like 80K XP. Well worth it though

Anyone who says KV4 is either bad or is somehow still hungover from Memorial Day. ISU 152 all the way!

I wouldn’t free exp the normal tech tree tank. Save your exp for modules on horrible stock tanks.

 

But ya, go with your preferred play style. Their hard tanks to compare. Apples and oranges.

Absolutely free xp is for modules. Never for a tank. “I’m stock” is the siren call of the nub. But, if you’re intent on it probably 152 at this point in the game. :playing:

I am so close to using free exp for the KV-4 for the first time with the exception of tiers 1 and 2.

If only the traverse speeds were better. I have only used it during events to grind.

Absolutely don't agree with this tank and I know I should learn it but the frustrations with it are real.

I would go SU for sure. It is derp.

Not sure. I'm a heavy tank driver so I'm more biased towards heavy tanks. From what I see, KV-4 is a pain to drive if you haven't mastered it nor have its top modules unlocked, but after you can get rid of the KV-4 and onto the next tank, it'll be well worth it. I don't have the ST-I nor the IS-4 myself, but I know for sure that those two tanks are one of the very best tanks in their respective tiers in the game.

Must. Have. 60%. Winrate. Under. 0.5%. Platoon. Rate!!! (30 day)

The KV-4 is a boring tank to play but it's not bad. I'm 75% in it.

 

I would say that the answer is which line does he want to move up to IX and X in. KV-4 gets you the ST-I and IS-4.
