      The kv4 is a beast of its tier boasting 150mm of frontal armor, it can be a formidable opponent. But people recently have asked me why I use the stock turret, I mean, since when have stock modules have been better? Well for starters, the stock turret has 2 key advantages for the stock turret. For one, you have a turret that is smaller, it has a bigger gun mantlet to cover more area for the front, and there is no turret on top of the turret. Also the turret is shorter and only has a tiny machine gun turret. Plus the top gun can be fitted into the smaller turret, you may have less ammo, hp, and rate of fire, but in my opinion the trade for a better armor profile is worth it, give me your opinions in the polls.

The top turret is best despite those that are adept at playing "World of Cupola Snipes". Angle it between shots and you'll do great work for the Greens.

I just agree with Bushka on blitz with my point of the argument, but thank you for your feedback

The top turret is better by far

 

The stock turret may have a slightly smaller weakspot, and a larger mantlet, but it's just far weaker. The top turret's "weakspot" is still like 200mm thick, so it's actually difficult to penetrate for most lower tier and same tier opponents without premium ammunition. The stock turret, on the other hand, still has a rather prominent cupola, which is actually larger, and far weaker. Even the lowest pen opponents it can face, like the Comet, will slice through every time with AP shells.

 

Furthermore, the stock turret's mantlet, while large, is also weak, being only 180mm effective, so most tier 8's will penetrate without it issue. Let that sink in. The mantlet on the stock turret is much easier to pen then the "weakspot" on the top turret

 

Why anyone would pick the more weakly armored turret that also lowers your gun stats, view range, and turret traverse is beyond me.

 

 

And Bushka is rarely right on things. His opinion is not an end all

Actually it has produced much more bounces in tournaments, it's just better for me and produces some great games, the other turret was worse for me.

The top turret “weakpoint,” often just bounces everything you throw at it for...well no reason? So honestly the top turret is better in every way. The stock turret means enemies don’t even need a weakpoint, they can just pen your turret front proper.
