I bought the Verzilla personal offer last week. Only played a few games in it, but I really do not think I will ever like it. I thought it would play similarly to the KV-4, since it has "KV-4" in the name. The gun is fine, but the armor seems less reliable compared to the TT KV-4. Also has fewer hit points than the KV-4, which doesn't help. I have situational success in city maps, if I'm able to get into a fight around a corner. More often though I'm a big target. Looking forward to making this thing disappear from my garage and get something else!

The Armour is more effective than the regular KV-4. People massively overestimate the effectiveness of the KV-4s Armour profile.

I know the KV-4 is a pretty easy target when I am firing at it. For instance, the cupola is massive and sticks out like a sore thumb. But the KV-4 felt better, for lack of a more articulate description, when I was driving it compared to the experience I have so far in the Verzilla.  I liked the KV-4. I didn't keep it in my garage, but I enjoyed it while I was leveling up that tree.

The Verzilla handles just a bit differently from the standard KV-4 so that could be one issue you're having too, since the turret is in a slightly different spot on the hull and it's a bit longer. Side scraping would be one of your best bets, even with the regular KV-4 it's advised to side scrape more than anything else. Peek a boom and don't let the enemy aim in too long on your low plate and cupola.

If I only had a Baneblade....

Yep, pretty flat armour profile all round.

 

Pretty much only made for sidescraping, the cupola isn't the only weakspot.

 

Upper lip on the hull close to the turret as well as lower plate, flat turret...

That’s what I’ve said in the Verzilla thread:

I have it. Its armor is mostly useless against the T-X it gets constantly. They don’t have to aim for weak spots and just auto aim and pen every time. And it’s pretty slow. But - OK it’s good reverse side scraper on right hand corners... and not good in anything else. 

 

... so I’ve warned the tank is pretty meh. :hiding:

I like my KV-4 by K (same tank). I also loved my KV-4. I did sell it once I was done with it but I really did like it. It gave me several Ace Tankers and a Radley's (although that came with a loss).

It's decent hull down and is a very good side scraper. The gun is also excellent both with standard ammo and premium ammo. It's speed is about average for the heavies in the tier.

I quite like it as an alternative to the plethora of is3 clones.. It's great at sidescraping, but it is big and slow, so getting into position can be awkward. I enjoyed it in ranked battles.

  • Demi-accurate gun with good penetration and shell velocity
  • Decent at hull-down; has huge thick gun mantlet and 7° gun depression
  • High ammo capacity
  • Respectable weight, pretty resistant to ramming
  • Can side scrape (preferably on left hand side)

 

... extremely rare sight on the battlefield it is, but the Kreslavskiy could actually prove more than its own worth in the right hands.

 

...playstyle: find proper cover, go hull down or side-scrape and support the pushing teammates by dishing out damage steadily. The large ammo reserve might appear abundant and forgiving,

 

...Yet its unique playstyle among USSR tanks and rare status still grants considerable collection value.

The KV-4 KTTS is an entirely different machine to the KV-4K/Verzilla. The KTTS is a turret less tank destroyer.

 

I don't think the KTTS has been made available on console yet.

Fact, there are three premium KV-4

KV-4 K Kreslayskiy

KV-4 K Albino "Verzila"

And something new & fresh & uniqe like legendary White Crow

 

KV-4 KTTS a next batch of soviet power steel

I thought the KTTS was never released on PC either? It kind of reminds me of the T28 HTC but with a weird gun arc
