KV-5 is up for sale. Wondering how folks like it. I liked my KV-4 a lot and am wondering if it's just a bigger version.

At first I was a bit skeptical, but I was surprised to read this statistic someone posted in a discord server I'm in:

The KV-5 is the best performing tank at tier 8 relative to the tier 8 winrate of people playing it.  It's actually received several buffs and the armor is quite strong now, despite the R2-D2 spot on the front.  Pretty tricky to pen without using gold and aiming precisely.  Of course, you still have to deal with how slow the tank is, but it seems you already like the KV-4 so I'm sure you'd do fine.

KV-5 got buffed and is a pretty good tank these days. I played it to burn off my x5s and have garaged it at the moment as Heavy tanks seem to wait longer in the MM queue.  But I had fun with it when I played it. Probably will drag it out for some special modes. I would recommend it.

One of 1st premium tanks I ever purchased. The recent buff has not only made it much more competitive, it’s a beast now armor wise, esp if you can angle properly. Very, very fun tank in special game modes where it’s speed/mobility is increased and with its very healthy hp pool, very effective.

It's reasonably fast for a heavy when it gets there, but takes a while.  It is very heavy, so if you can run into something at speed, do so - it's a great ramming machine which often catches people off guard.

the kv 5 icon is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY to big. smaller than the JagdPanzer E 100, but bigger than the grille 15 so yes, it is a bigger version of the kv4. but if you wanna good speed, excellent ramming, and a chonky boi, then buy it.

Wow, what insight from someone who doesn't own the tank.:rolleyes:

People are saying good things about the KV-5? Maybe I did miss something while I was gone.
