High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Kliment Voroshilov
(KV) tanks were a series of Soviet heavy tanks, named after the
Soviet defense commissar and politician Kliment Voroshilov. The KV
series were known for their extremely heavy armour protection
during the early war, especially during the first year of the
invasion of the Soviet Union in World War II. Almost completely
immune to the 7.5 cm KwK 37 and 3.7 cm KwK 36 guns mounted on the
early Panzer III and Panzer IV tanks, until better guns were
developed often the only way to defeat a KV-1 was a point-blank
shot to the rear. Prior to the invasion, about 500 of the over
22,000 tanks in Soviet service at the time were of the KV-1 type.
