The KV is a series of Soviet heavy tanks, named in the memory of Kliment Voroshilov, a Soviet politician.
You already know the KV-1, so let’s have a look at the second part of the new KV branch which will be implemented soon in the Soviet Tech tree.

Both tanks were produced at the same period around 1940. Soon after the start of WWII, in Russia, manufacturers phased out its production as this single-purpose tank was an exorbitant luxury in the initial period of the war.
