BFMMM17 Miniatures Box Set

Soviet heavy tanks were a thorn in the side of the German Army throughout the war. Their armor was almost invulnerable to most German anti-tank weapons and their guns were more than adequate to deal with most German tanks.

GABTU (Main Directorate of Armored Forces) was determined to maintain this state of affairs. The SKB 2 heavy tank design bureau in Chelyabinsk started the KV 13 program to build a heavy tank with both sufficient mobility and heavier armor.

N V Tseits, recently released from a Gulag concentration camp, headed the project with his old colleague K I Kuzmin working on the hull design. Using castings to get a better shaped tank, his team delivered a tank ten tons lighter than the KV, despite having better armor. Unfortunately its performance was lacking and the project was cancelled.
