Bolt Action: Sowjetischer KW 1
Die Bolt Action Sowjetspieler dürfen sich über einen neuen schweren Panzer freuen, den KW 1.
More heavy metal for the Motherland’s brave soldiers! We are expanding our Soviet vehicles ranges as fast as the factories at Tankograd allow – this week we release the KV-1 heavy tank…
Except for the French Char B1, at it’s inception the KV-1 was the only other heavy tank in operational service in the world at that time. Later in the war, because of the impact it had the KV series became a base of development for the Iosef Stalin, or IS series of tanks.
As the war continued, the KV-1 continued to get more armour to compensate for the increasing effectiveness of German weapons. This culminated in the KV-1 model 1942 (German designation KV-1C), which had very heavy armour the requirements for KV-1 were heavily skewed towards a heavy tank that was supposed to dominate the field.
Tankers complained that although they were well-protected, their mobility was poor and they had no firepower advantage over the T-34 medium tank and in response to criticisms, the lighter KV-1S was released, with thinner armour and a smaller, lower turret in order to reclaim some speed. Importantly, the KV-1S also had a commander’s cupola with all-around vision blocks, a first for a Soviet heavy tank.
Es handelt sich um einen Resin- und Zinnbausätz für 22,00 GBP.
