World of Tanks KV-1S – 8 Kills 4,1K Damage
Medals received: Radley-Walter’s Medal, High Caliber, Top Gun
The KV-1S is a Soviet tier 5 heavy tank.
A further modification of the KV-1 heavy tank series developed in the summer of 1942. It passed into Red Army service on August 20, 1942. Compared to its predecessors, KV-1S had several design features which allowed for the tank’s weight to be reduced to 42.3 tons. Also, the KV-1S had increased top speed, maneuverability, and durability. However, the 76-mm ZIS-5 gun remained. This, coupled with reduced and inefficient armoring, made the new vehicle basically equal to the Т-34 in terms of battle performance. A total of 1,083 vehicles of this modification were manufactured. This tank was widely used on all fronts of the Great Patriotic War.
Being the only way to access the IS from the heavy line since the 0.7.3 patch, then replaced in 0.9.3 by the KV-85, this tank has become a more common sight in battles. It is the antithesis to its counterpart, the KV-1, as this tank trades in its armor for excellent mobility. This tank can lead an assault and it can either be immediately behind the heavier tanks or try to flank the enemy and hit hard with the 122mm howitzer, or penetrate them to death with your high rate of fire . Despite only having 75mm of frontal armor, the KV-1S is a hard nut to crack, keep in mind though that most shots planted behind the turret will result in a fire. A fire extinguisher is highly recommended for this tank, as well as a medkit.
The KV-85 took place of the KV-1S at tier 6 in 0.9.3.
The KV-1S leads to the KV-85.
