  1. I already saw this video last week I randomly found on youtube. I look so much forward to power grind this baby! I got everything ready, free xp to skip modules so I don’t have to play stock tanks, 5th skill crew, gold to retrain crew, 100 million credits, garage slots.

    It is funny how they test all kind of stuff but don’t test something that will happen most often – direct hit by 120mm, 122mm and 125mm guns (that Russians were using at that time).
    Also whatching this I kinda think like this tests were made specialy for that tank, so it could survie it.

    I think they should have test this tank with direct KV-2 152mm gun hit. If the tank would sorvive this, then eaven atom bomb wont kill it 😀

      nope, from its contemporaries (it entered service in 1967) only T-64 used 125 mm smoothbore, the most common USSR tank at that point would be T54/55 with 100mm gun.

      and it would take another five years before T-72 (basically T64 stripped of its composite armor …) would enter mass production.

      PS: in the video they say tank will not survive direct hit by 150mm artillery HE shell. Thing is, good luck hitting low profile fast MBT that can take you out from 2-3km range with WW2 relic like KV2 in 1960ties … concept of heavy tank was long since dead by the time S-tank rolled into service.

        In realit KV-2 was a relic. It could ony fire when the turret was in certain position. Otherwise the recoil wold jamed the turret.

        In WoT KV-2 can shoot while moving and becouse of RNG it can even hit fast-moving light tanks (while still moving 😀 )
        So hitting small fast moving target (example ELC AMX) is not a problem here 😀 XD

        I i remember correctly the 125mm smoothebore guns would go right through the front and exit out the back leaving the tank wrecked.
