The KV-1 (known in Poland as the KW-1) was a Soviet heavy tank that surpassed the German designs at the beginning of the war. It was produced from 1940-1943 at the Leningrad Kirov Plants and the Chelyabinsk Tractor Plant. 4,786 units of all versions were produced. The name of the tank comes from the Soviet Defense Commissar, Kliment Voroshilov.
The tank was characterized by strong armor up to 82mm, impossible to penetrate for most German equipment, and a heavy weight of up to 45 tons. The main armament was a 76mm gun. The tank's disadvantages were slowness, steerability, unreliable engine, lack of ergonomics and poor visibility of the battlefield. Despite this the tank was a difficult opponent. The successor of the KW-1 equipped with the same gun was the legendary T-34 tank.
You can build a model of the famous Soviet KV-1 tank from 656 COBI blocks. Movable track traction, rotating turret, opening engine compartments and hatches, prints, Soviet markings and a figure of a tanker and a soldier make the set not only an exhibition model, but also a toy for everyone. The figures come with accessories such as a rifle, binoculars, cape and headgear.
The set includes a stylized historic Soviet road sign with the words “Stalingrad, Volga River.” Clear and intuitive instructions easily guide the builder through the stages of assembling the vehicle. The whole set is complemented by a plate with the name of the vehicle printed on it. Build history, piece by piece.
