well the thing is: they used he rounds against all enemy tanks because it would crack the armor and fragment inside the tank but the surefire way of winning is good anti tank rounds leading to the kt's superiority

The Russian 122mm didnt have the high velocity of the 88mm and the rounds of the 122mm werent as "high tech" as the 88mm.

Hmm what about add upgrade for KT gun. It has 88mm normally but it can be eq. with 10,5cm gun which can be even much better :-)(WoT source)
Well its true IS-2 gun is less powerfull but is-2 is nothing more than IS with 122mm gun :-) Add IS-7 and KT will be nothing more than crap :-D
