The KV-5 is a Tier VIII heavy from the Soviet tech tree. It has a strong hull and turret armor. This makes the KV-5 a good choice for ramming strategies. If taking down an opponent's tank like a heavy-weight wrestling champion is your idea of fun, send this metal monster to your garage!

Although the KV-5 can run up to 40km/h, it needs space to execute ramming techniques. Also, beware of vehicles from higher tiers as the KV-5 cannot penetrate armor beyond 125-209mm.

Get the KV-5 if you strongly value a good defence and a tank's credit-earning capability.

  • Strong hull and turret armor
  • Can take a lot of damage
  • Decent speed for a heavy tank
  • High HP
  • Earns a high amount of credits
  • Good rate of fire
  • Large size makes it a challenge to find proper hiding spots
  • Low penetration for its tier
  • Slow turret traverse
