After the success of the 1/16 R/C Russian KV-1 tank, Tamiya has released a second Russian Tank, the 1/16 R/C KV-2. In November 1940, mass production of the KV-2 began. The KV-2 tank was part of a series of Soviet tanks named after defense commissar Kilment Voroshilov. The large stature of the KV-2 was needed to house its 3.25m large turret, 24-caliber 1938/40 152mm M-10 howitzer and ammunition. This tank could hold 36 shells of various types of ammunition, including a special armor-piercing shell to attack concrete pillboxes. On June 24th, 1941 the KV tanks faced the German 6th Panzer Division in Lithuania. The massive size of the KV and 75mm thick armor was difficult for the German force to penetrate. German soldiers called the KV tanks "Ungeheuer{" (monster) and "Gigant" (giant) because of their enormous size.
