KV-3 to be replaced by the T-150

The KV-3 moves one tier up (from tier 6 to tier 7). The T-150 substitutes it as a tier 6 heavy tank. Thus, the Soviet tech tree from tier 5 to 8 will look like this (disregarding KV-1S): KV-1 tier 5 -> T-150 tier 6 -> KV-3 tier 7 -> KV-4 tier 8.

Case 1. KV-3 isn’t in the garage at the time of substitution (update release), but is fully researched:
  1. If engine “V-2IS” was researched in the research tree of KV-3 as tier 6 heavy tank, then it will be available in the research tree of KV-3 as tier 7 heavy. Same goes for the radio “10RK”;
  2. If the turret of KV-3 was researched in the research tree of KV-3 as tier 6, then it will be available as a KV-3 turret in the research tree of KV-3 as tier 7;
