KV Tank Company (SBX40)

KV Tank Company (Plastic) (SBX40)
includes five plastic KV-1,KV-1S or KV-8 tanks, one plastic Tank Commander sprue, one Decal sheet and six Unit Cards.

The KV-1 heavy tank is one of the most heavily-armoured tanks in the world, with up to 120mm (4.7 inches) of cast steel armour on the turret. Few enemy tanks (or even anti-tank guns) have any chance of penetrating its thick hide.

Enemy at the Gates
Despite being thrown back from the gates of Moscow in the winter offensive, the Germans were back on the attack in the summer of 1942. The Red Army launched offensive after offensive to throw the invaders back, but nothing could stop them from overrunning the southern Russia and reaching the Volga at Stalingrad. In the bitter street fighting of autumn, the Red Army bled the Germans dry. Then, as winter set in, they launched another round of offensives that regained all they had lost.

While it proved to be tough, the low speed of the KV-1 prevented it from operating effectively with other tank types. The KV-1s (s for skorostnoy, or high-speed) reduced the tank's armour and used a better transmission to make this heavy tank faster than most medium tanks.

The Red Army developed flame-tanks before the war to assist their infantry to overrun and destroy enemy positions. The KV-8 was the latest and toughest in this long lineage. It mounted an ATO-41 flame-thrower in the turret in place of the machine-gun, with a smaller 45mm gun replacing the 76mm gun to make space.
