RUSSIAN KV-5 SUPER HEAVY TANK: Did you know another version of the KV tank was being planned. Object 225 was designed but was never to see active service, the project was later cancelled and no prototype was developed. DEATH TO THE FASCISTS! If the KV-5 was put into production it would have been powered by 1 x 1,200hp engine, but later changed to two-parallel mounted engines. Main armament 1 x 107mm main gun that was mounted in a large turret and its secondary armament up to 6 x DT 7.62mm machine guns. Its weight would have been up to 100 tons! with armor protection between 150- to 180mm. The KV-5 would have been longer than a standard KV Tank.
