Description

This 1/35 scale assembly kit recreates the Russian Heavy Tank KV-2, a heavier variant of the KV-1 (Item 35372).

The Russian Heavy Tank KV-2 was developed and produced at the same time as the KV-1 chassis, but it incorporated a massive, boxy turret equipped with a 152mm howitzer.

Although its weight caused frequent machinery failure during the early part of the German-Soviet War from June, 1941, it’s also recorded that one KV-2 single handedly held up one German division, for a few days.

The KV-2 concept also played a role in the development of heavy self-propelled guns such as the JSU-152.
