World of Tanks KV-1 – 11 Kills 4,1K Damage (1 VS 6)
Medals received: Kolobanov’s Medal, Pool’s Medal, Steel Wall, High Caliber, Top Gun
The KV-1 is a Soviet tier 5 heavy tank.
Development started at the end of 1938. A prototype was produced in August 1939. The vehicle first saw combat in December 1939 at the Mannerheim Line. The tank was mass-produced from March 1940 through August 1942, with a total of 2,769 vehicles manufactured.
Most novice players will find the KV-1’s playing style significantly different from what they are used to, having just come out of the T-28 medium tank. At stock, armed with the adequate 76mm ZiS-5, it is very slow, and certainly not agile. Consider mounting the 57mm 413 if you enjoy a fast fire rate with decent penetration. The KV-1 with the 122mm U-11 gun firing HE shells can be a surprisingly fun tank to play, but don’t expect to be doing much when you get thrown in with the big boys battles.
It’s one of the tanks new players should definitely learn to kill as the same weak spots are shared with other tanks in the KV family. Frontal weak-spots include the flat plate directly below the turret and the lower plate below the heavily sloped mid section, and shots to the side and rear will penetrate the flat 60mm armoring fairly consistently.
This tank used to be combined with the KV-2 in the removed KV tank.
The KV-1 leads to the T-150, the KV-2, and the KV-1S.
