Bazookas seem to bounce off it as well (which makes sense since the 17pdr has low penetration chance on it as well) so you have to "outplay" it with point and click?
That is the funny part that is arround in Bk since i can remember. Such tanks (I count to those KT, JT but also "lighter" types such as jagdpanther) are very hard to kill by normal combat units. It usually cost you a lot of units. Just sometimes people are extremely stupid with these kind of tanks.
But their general firepower and armor makes them to be very though targets. So allis usually throw planes and arty at them which in turn cause all these complains like "Allis kill KT with planes and arty". Like when you play as american and there comes an JT you can perhaps stop it by throwing like 18 stickies on it (or with some luck just one). But even if it stopped there is no weapon that goes through. I had games in which i killed them literally just with stickies but it was in a game that was won anyway. It took mins to do so. So usually it ends up in immobilizing the target somehow and then finish it before it gets repaired. And thats what axis can do very good. The entire PE faction as well as def doc has very good repair capabilties.
Its in my opinion i vicious cycle. On the one hand normal weapons will barely kill it. And even if you make one of these "1%" pen shots... these tanks have a shitload of HP as well as huge damage reduction from arty due to the tt´s(approx 50%) or in case of def doc Zimmerit (all taken damage reduced by 25%).
So at the end the entire allied team throws everything they have and whats left once a KT has a damaged engine or damaged tracks. That results in "allied have so many easy click to kill beast killer abilites". They have them and need them and they use them carefully. Unlike terror doc which can throw tons of various weapons on immobilized churchills and pershings. Guns, hendheld AT´s (even volks), rocket arty or whatever.
As i said: Never ending vicious cylce.
