    Looking at the KV-2 now one might say "what were they thinking". But at the beginning of
    WWII this monster of a tank was a fearsome sight on the early battlefields. There was
    nothing else like it and the heavy armor made it almost impenetrable by any tank the
    Germans had at the time. As the war progressed, the Germans developed better tanks
    with greater firepower. The large KV-2 became an easy target and because of it being
    under powered for its size it was slow moving. Another drawback was it was designed as
    a break-through tank and was deployed in small units. One of the most costly factors for
    the KV-2 was the inability of the Soviets to keep these machines supplied with fuel and
    ammunition. As a result many were just abandoned by their crew when they realized re-
    supply wasn�t coming.

    The KV series of Soviet tanks were named after Kliment Voroshilov and were very
    effective against German armor during the early stage of WWII. A single KV-2 and infantry
    could hold off a German offensive. The Germans referred to the huge KV-2 as the
    "Russischer Koloss" - Russian Colossus. Eventually the German 88 millimeter gun was
    used with success against the KV-2. The KV-2 had a very high silhouette and because of
    its size was very awkward. When used as a pill box buster or infantry support this
    machine was great.
