So, continuing my theme of shit-tank gifting via Wargaming, the first tank I noticed in my garage was the KV-122. And, despite me knowing its shit I've committed myself to playing the KV-122, Krupp Steyr (review/updates here) and the Fury for 25 battles each at least. So, what can I tell you about the KV-122? Well, 1st: Its another needless, pointless, unworthy clone yet again for the Russian Heavy tank Premiums. This gives them, and its not limited to: IS2B Church III IS6 IS6B KV4K KV-5 Obj260 KV-220 IS3A IS-5 And meanwhile, the US TDs continue to have nothing worthwhile. But, I digress. So, wtf do I have going for me in this tank right now? 5 battles, 4 wins, 2587 DPG What? Current equipment Vents, Rammer... Optics? Yes, optics. Why? Cause I didnt want to spend 500k credits on a GLD. Current Consumables Small Med/Rep, Auto Ext The Good: Its another freaking 122mm bias freaking gun. Mobility: I frequently get up to 40kph (Which is like, twice the speed of the fucking Krupp Steyr) The Average Gun handling is what you expect and know by now for a Rasha 122mm Turret Face can troll DPM doesnt feel terrible The Bad You're an up-tired tier 6 with your hull armor, so dont expect bounces from the front of your tank at all Repair times felt underwhelming, even with a nearly 5 skill crew So, knowing what I could see about the tank, I decided to play it differently than all my other Rusha HTs: Bully MTs. Thats my ONLY goal in life, is to bully MTs while playing this. And, its making this tank really work for me. The armor will not allow it to heads up other HTs in a 1v1, but its just fast enough to get into a good enough position to start bullying MTs. Heres two replays featuring a lot of just that mentality
