Hey guys when I put up my camo net it still lets the shells through. Are the holes too big? Can I get a camo blanket instead, maybe with gold?

I even trained my KV4 crew in camo and bia but it does not seem to make a difference. The status bar at the bottom of the screen shows it being active but still other players shoot me. And mostly I can not see them. Should I use binoculars? Thanks in advance.

Surely this is a troll post. But in the evident that it’s not, let’s do some maffs:

In the garage when you select the tank there will be a camouflage rating. Because the KV-4 is yuuge it’s got a shit camo rating.

Let’s assume the base camo rating is 5% stationary. This means that a tank with 400m view will spot you at 380m (400-5%)

If you have all crew members trained in camo I think this improves you camo skill by 100% (I may be wrong), so your camo now increases to 10%. (5% +100% - Spotted at 360m). Add in a net with adds 25% to camo when activated, your camo rating is 12.5%. (Spotted at 350m)

However, at tier 8 many lights and meds will have a spotting range of 450m+, meaning that you’ll be spotted at 393m (450-12.5%)

Compare this to your view range, and the assumption that lights have a 30% camo rating (many are higher). If you have a 400m range you’ll spot them at 280m, and at 315m even if you had 450m view range.

Hence you’ll always be outspotted by a light or med with a decent crew.

Hiding behind bushes adds a further 25% to your camo rating if you’re within 15m of a bushes and you can remain unspotted further, so always uses bushes as cover when advancing.

Note: when you fire or move, this will further reduce your camo rating.

If you buy a net through bonds this will have smaller holes.  It also acts as spaced Armour to protect against HE and HEAT.

What i mean is Kv4 is a heavy tank not a td or a light tank .kv4 is huge tank its pretty useless for camo skills and camo net. Save that camo skills to the last and demount that camo net

camo net is just to keep your tank cool in the sun and warm in the snow. it helps so your crew don't get uncomfortable and unhappy.

 

camo paint works better, but be careful, your team might not be able to see you and shoot you accidentally, luckily WG sorted this out and you cant TK anymore, WG really care for us !

I don’t know if I’ve been whooshed or I’ve done the whooshing.  I suspect it may be a bit of both?

Nice one bro gj. last time i checked, my KV-4 with 100% crew (without camo skill)

had a legendary camo rating of somewhere between 4.00 - 5.00 i looked once when i got it a while a go

and decided its not worth looking at again and that was it
