KV-1's Ehkranami
General Background
In 1939 the Red Army Command requested for a heavy breakthrough tank and the two-turret SMK was selected. After a radical re-design, the new tank was marked as the KV-1 heavy tank with one turret and it was armed with the higher velocity 76 . 2mm main gun.

In July 1941, the KV-1 underwent an upgrade of armor protection with “ appliqued armor panels ” applied . It was designated as the KV-1E ( Ekranami" means appliqued armor]. This modification along with a few others features brought the weight from 43 ton n es to 50 tonnes .

This particular tank has the patriotic slogan “ Bey fashistkuyu gabinu! ” painted on the turret which means “Crush the Fascist Vipers” .There are no official records with the exact number of KV-1Es produced.
