This group is for everyone who like tanks, sci-fi tanks, real tanks, funny tanks, you can put here tank mods, tank maps, simply everything with straps, armor and gun :D
did it work?
No, it's fake.
I heared it was produced, and broke in half, and that was in a science/history paper. On the other hand that was a popular science paper.
The first prototype was completed in December 1941 and was rushed into the defense of Moscow. In its first action during a dense winter fog, the rear turret accidentally fired into the center turret. The resulting explosion completely destroyed the vehicle. The second prototype was completed in January 1942, and was sent to the Leningrad front. This one had indicators installed to show whe another turret was in the line of fire. In its initial attack on the Germans, the tank broke in half when crossing a ravine. A spark ignited the leaking flamethrower fuel and the resulting explosion completely destroyed the vehicle. The third prototype, shown here, had a reinforced hull and was also sent to the Leningrad front in early 1942. It did manage to shoot down three German aircraft. In its first ground engagement, the KV-VI was firing on German positions when coincidentally all of the guns fired from the 3 O'Clock position a the same time. The tremendous recoil tipped the tank into a ditch and the severe jostling set off the 152mm ammunition, which completely destroyed the vehicle. After these failures, Stalin cancelled the project, and many of the design team members spent the rest of their lives in the Gulags of Sibera. The KV-VI was nicknamed "Stalin's Orchestra" by the few Germans that encountered it because of the variety of weapons it deployed.
there we go
ComeradeStalin, he gave the details of this before, where is he when we need him, Xmb.stuffucanuse.com this is the only picture of the actual tank (the bottom right) that can be found, but yeah, there were 3 prototypes, they all are gone though /\ /\ /\ /\ /\ /\
that thing on the photo is a T-28 limo. Not a KV-limo. And to be fair, it can be a shoop.
As I said, it's fake, this thing never existed. Shot down 3 aircraft? Yeah right, what did it shoot at them, AA missiles? How does that small turret above ammunition storage rotate? I mean really, it's just a joke someone made.
ediko911 says the truth! The tank in this picture is only phantasy and photoshop, nothing historical about it.
Please STOP rating up EAFSAgamemnon's comment, the story is fantasy and fake.
It's like the same with german E-100 tank family, not all of the tanks are historical. Many people believe the E-100 Jagdpanzer "Krokodil" or the E-90 or the E-100 flakpanzer "Alligator" are real, but these are all phantasy and fake (made up by Sebastian nast a german fanboy).
Be careful when reading those stories about "top secret prototypes", not everything what you see on the internet is true!
Indeed. The most realiable sources are books generally. Though there is some good info on the internet.
i wasnt saying it was real jest that it was cool but hers a link Forum.worldoftanks.com
I remember reading a quote a while back (Probably made up) In which stalin said 'It will drive straight to berlin".
Though i've really not seen enough evidence to be convinced it existed.
a shity prototype
GEZ-UZ! hey, its like the german tank the lzaurizar
top speed and mpg? haha
i dunno but i just don't see this thing as a practical solution for a land-based heavy weapons platform.
landcruser translated from german, heres link:https://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/299/ratteqs3.jpg/sr=1
you can see the weapon mentality during those times that bigger meant better. the bigger and longer the ****, the better it performs! lol!
