Yes, i know. But again, the issue is, that in game APCR is absolutely trash. It is also “not APCR”, because after the squeeze bore shell leaves the barrel, it looks like a solidshot, those “sticking out fins” are going to be pressed to the “core”. So it is more aerodynamic, than APCR. It is like APDS.
But if you want to play with ta tank, that is
a, has no armor
c, can’t do anything, because it uses a uesless ammo
Then this tank is going to be your favourite.
The other reason is taht, knowing Gaijin, they will go for the APCR anyway.
I am in a different discussion about the VK 3001, and i was mistaken, i though i was on that forum.
Yes, you are right.
However, i would like to oint out, that you are talking about a KV-1. That KV-1 is just better armored, than the Tiger 1.
Vith the VK’s armor, the problem is the very weak side, turret, and cupola armor. You can angle a Tiger, but you just can’t angle this VK in way to make the front effective, while the side being effective too.
80mm turret front, with a Panther style mantlet is just bad. It is flat, and the mantlet is effective 70-75mm, since it is probably cast armor, and not a black hole mess, like on the Tiger.
50mm cupola? Yes, soviet 45mm go brrrrrrrrrr.
