OKB Grigorov has released its fourth KV-4 kit that models another one of the proposed designs.
As part of the Kliment Voroshilov tank design series, the KV-4 was a project to address the need for a super heavy tank. Several tank designers were engaged to prepare concept drawings and there were about 20 different submissions. Weight varied between 85 and 100 tons, armor by as much as 190mm thick. All had proposed the 107mm ZiS-6 as the main gun, and all had secondary guns, except for one design. The project did not go beyond this and was eventually cancelled.

OKB Grigorovís Soviet Heavy Tank KV-4, Kruchenykh's Proposal (72060) is offered in 1/72 scale, and contains 141 resin, and 10 metal parts.

Just as well that the Soviets never pursued this silly elephant as it would have set back armour by a decade. What a silly-looking turret & cupula.
