I think your question would be 'Who doesn't love the King Tiger' ;)

Though I do not use it a lot in the battlefield, it is a very nice made model with a great skin as all of you agree.

SkipsterA "repair pad whore" A "camper" (my personal favorite. I'll be damned if I'm running my tank into a built-up area without inf support) A "brewed-up wreck"

Its just the shit you have to learn to put up with I guess. After I was playing fair and being called that when I started playing this game, I quickly learned that their only pissed off because Im playing effectivly. Quickly I learned how to take adventage of these factors, and now I call myself FH's best tanker, and only a few can compare themselves to me.

USMA2010But thats still a great gun. They are easy targets to spot, but damn, given that most tank battles in FH are at around 500m, and the Sherman VC can penetrate 150mm of armor at that range, It makes Tigers look out for their asses.

Well, actually they are at least as easy targets to spot as normal Shermans, if note easier, as the lod model is lacking the longer gun (or even the whole turret?).

USMA2010lol, i love this. some guy rolled up to my KT's right flank in a churchill, how i didnt see him i dont know. he popped around 12 shots right into my 150mm of side armor without me even knowing it. I saw him finally, put one in the front, and killed him.

"HAX I SAY" "Noob, my side armor is as thick as a tiger's front" "oh"

My sources suggest, that KingTiger does not have any more side armor than the normal Tiger, which has 80mm. But, it still requires some 12 shots to kill for some f*cked up reason, so you got that right.

I'm sure that they've taken into account the slope creating a "relative thickness".

80mm @ 25° = 100 @ 10° (given the crude in-game math).

I love the king tiger, for the simple reason that it's the most fun to blow up with my plane.

King tiger.. never used it online. to heavily camped by self proclaimed "1337 tankers".

One powerfull weapon, just a tank. but just really really powerfull. Doesnt take any special skill to operate tho. I rather drive a stug3.

There is a reason for that, all the tank lod models (included DICE ones) have not gun because it has not separated turret, so we must delete guns to avoid you are thinking the tank is not engaging you with the gun and is really engaging you. I hope you understand what I am trying to say
