Not what you were looking for? Were you looking for the KV-2 (R)?

The KV-2 is a Tier VI Soviet Heavy Tank.

This tank features an extremely large turret, and is able to mount the 152mm M-10 howitzer. But this gun, while powerful, is immensely inaccurate and has a long reload time. It's armor remains unchanged from the KV-1, meaning bounces are rare against this tank

The KV-2 features 2 of the greatest and most powerful guns in the game. The infamous feature of the tank is its 152mm M-10 Howitzer. Equipped with this gun the KV-2 can one-shot every tier 4 in-game and some tier 5's. Using HE, this tank can do devastating amounts of damage, with an average damage of 900 odd HP, and it will attempt to do damage regardless on where the HE shell lands on the tank. The tank can also mount the 107mm ZiS-6, which sacrifices damage while increasing accuracy and decreasing reload time. However, many players will discourage the usage the 107mm, as the T-150 can use it more effectively, making the KV-2 a more inferior platform to use. Rather, players would research this gun for cross-advancements, such as the T-150 and IS line.

The tank however lacks speed, and will struggle to reach top speed on rough ground. It also has a slow turret traverse speed, allowing light tanks, fast mediums and even some heavy tanks to outflank it.

The following is spoilers and historical inaccuracy about this vehicle! Do not open unless you are prepared for the spoilers! The reason Wargaming did this is due to game balancing in most cases!

  • This tank was actually an SPG
  • The 122 mm U-11 was never used by the KV-2 as the gun was developed after most were destroyed, captured or phased out.
    • However, some early KV-2's were equipped with the 122 mm, though they were upgunned to the 152 mm.
  • The KV-2's turret could only traverse on relatively flat ground.
    • Although there were plans for a new turret that featured -7°, it was never built and the second turret featured -5° just like the first
  • The top speed of the KV-2 was only 25 km/h on road and 12 km/h off road.
