The invading Germans received a major shock when they encountered the KV1 heavy tank in June 1941.

  1. This writing says "Leningrad! For
    Leningrad women to the front!"
    It should be something like
    "За Ленинград! От ленинградских женщин фронту!"

  2. So, did the driver have to operate the MG in the hull ballmount as well as driving the tank? From what I've read about the strain of driving WW2 era Soviet tanks, that seems a little unrealistic!

  3. It’s design really looks the part . Tough , reliable and simple . “ it sort of put us to shame “ was an understatement . What on earth were our designers thinking of at the time ? I’ve never understood how British tank design was so deficient.

  4. Funny things happen in combat. Most WWII fans are familiar with Jagdtiger. A 70+ ton German monster with a 128mm cannon and 8 to 9 inches of armor up front. The Germans bragged that it was impervious to any U.S. tank or anti tank gun. As it so happens, the first one to be killed in combat was killed by a single infantryman with a bazooka. The second to be killed was taken out by a German civilian militiaman with a panzerfaust. It was a case of friendly fire. The man had never seen one and mistook it for some new American tank.

  5. Not sure I agree with the assessment of it being a good tank or even successful.
    Tigers routinely whooped it and it had various problems such as transmission issues, overheating to the point the tank fails after a certain amount of time driving, among other things.
    There is a video detailing "Why it is bad" here on youtube…
    After watching this… check this one out and you be the judge.
