The KV series of Soviet tanks were named after Kliment Voroshilov and were very effective against German armor during the early stage of WWII. A single KV-2 and infantry could hold off a German offensive. The Germans referred to the huge KV-2 as the "Russischer Koloss" - "Russian Colossus". Eventually the German 88 millimeter gun was used with success against the KV-2. The KV-2 had a very high silhouette and because of its size was very awkward. When used as a pill box buster or infantry support this machine was great.

KV-2 Heavy Artillery Tank

Designed to replace the disappointing multi-turreted T-35 heavy tank, the Soviet KV was in service from 1939 to 1945. The primary goal of the KV's designers was to build a tank with impenetrable armor, and they succeeded-any tank in service at the time of the KV's introduction would have had to attack at point blank range in order to breach its hull. It also had good firepower and traction, but was unfortunately slow and difficult to steer. By 1942, with the introduction of 50 and 75 mm guns and the high-velocity MK 10, the KV had lost its armor advantage, though it remained in service through the end of the war.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale KV heavy tank is constructed using an intelligent mix of diecast metal and plastic, which provides for a heavy feel with maximum scale replication. The top portion of the hull is made from plastic and the bottom from diecast metal. Fine details include rivets and bolts, separately-applied equipment such as boxes and tow cables, a 360 degree rotating turret, road wheels and torsion bar suspension. The series includes the KV1 variant - featuring a diecast metal turret with separately applied plastic side armor plates - and the KV2, featuring an unusually tall turret constructed from diecast metal with a pivoting metal cannon.
