Just wondering what equipment you folks run in the M4 and/or KV-1 and why?

 

In particular, do you go with the additional armour vs hit points?

Hit points on M4.  KV-1 is debatable.  I go the extra HP on both.

I've really wondered if the small amount of extra armour in either one would be enough to significantly increase the number of bounces.

I run extra armor on my KV-1 and I've been pretty happy. Not as happy as I was before the armor nerf, but still, happy enough.

There have been previous discussions about the armor buff on here.  Maybe try searching for it and see what you can find.  Was some good stuff if I remember.

KV: armor

M4: I only have the credit-purchased equipment on this, and I don't know what I'd run on the second row.

Supercharge and GLD are both viable options at that slot, and I would run the traverse buff on the KV, and Engine Accelerator on the M4.

KV-1 and any other heavy go with the extra armor.  If you bounce 1-2 more shots per game it's easily worth way more than the extra hit points.  If the tank only has a little armor to start with the extra 4% won't do you any good, so get the hit points for meds and lights.

It's a video game. There is no tier that matters.

KV-1 extra armor. I run kamikaze with the 57mm pew pew gun, so every little bit of armor helps when you’re angling up against a tank you’ve fatally permatracked. They can only fire from one spot once you’ve disabled them, so getting a few bounces is critical while you’re whittling away their HP pool!

Doesn't really link with spare parts, did anyone get the legendary camo for the KV-1?? (looks mad)

I run basically the same but increased armor not increased hit points:

My KV-1 currently has Armor and Accelerator.  It’ll eventually get the GLD.  Probably.

 

I don’t play the basic M4.   A fair to middlin’ gun with a solid mantlet are all well and good, I’d just prefer if there was an actually armored vehicle carrying them around.  However my Jumbo is fully kitted up to Vertical Stabilizer.  With GLD, Armor and Accelerator in the 2nd row.


The point of the game is to win.  The purpose of the game is to have fun.  They are not mutually exclusive.
