I decided to lower my blood pressure and hop over to level seven,messed with the Tiger 1 but I wanted more damage so I hunted around and came back to the old KV3.

 

Thing is I'm liking the 100mm cannon over the 122mm,better load time,cheaper ammo,better APCR pen,decent damage.

 

Anybody else like the non-derp gun?

This is a good example of where the new crew skill "Precision Fire" created an opportunity for people to use faster firing guns on heavies and TDs. I maxed that crew skill out; it's awesome.

I can't play it with the 122mm. The reload takes an eternity, and then when it's FINALLY loaded, you will more than likely miss if the target is farther than 50 meters away. The 100mm has a really nice RoF and good gun handling. It makes the KV-3 a lot more bearable for me to play.

100mm on Kv3 is probably the best gun choice. Run traverse buff also. I do more damage with the 100mm

I have actually never tried the 100mm gun. As for the 122 I have managed to do alright with it. Gotten 3k games once or twice, just gotta play close range.

now, yes, the 100mm does have a bit more APCR pen but 175mm of pen on AP isn't the worst. and 122 has more HE pen and its pretty funny to hit a SP 1 c or paper tank for 500 flat. and if u side scrape u can trade pretty hard and the reload is pretty slow, but that just means more time for steel walls >:3 and the shell cost. ok ill give u that one, it is literally 4 times more expensive, but i would chose the 100mm if i was grinding creds , not exp. its like the KV-2, it can suck at times but other times it dominates. like, people still use the 152mm on KV-2 because it funny and the shells do cost a lot. i guess its what ever u want, face smacker or the efficient credit earner.
