As promised in the last post here is the KV2. I think in most games like Bolt Action the KV2 is a great heavy tank option. It’s heavy howitzer is effective in destroying both tank and infantry targets alike. It is also good to put a little tank fear into your opponent. I love their reaction to facing the big Soviet tanks.
The KV2 was developed from the KV1 chassis and its heavy howitzer gun was designed as a bunker and fortification buster.
The large “box” turret was made to accommodate the gun’s size and recoil. The turret was fitted on to the standard KV turret ring.
The KV2’s heavy mass often led to the tank tank sinking into soft surfaces like mud.
Below is a size comparison with a T70. The T70 is from Die Waffenkammer.
The gun’s heavy recoil often led to turret ring damage which resulted in the turret jamming.
