This is the Trumpeter 05553 kit in 1/35 scale, of the ‘KV-220 Super Heavy Tank’.
KV-220 (Object 220) Experimental tank based on KV-1. Longer chassis (7 rollers per side). Armor – 100mm. New 850 hp V-2SN engine with turbocharging.
New diamond-shaped turret. 85mm F-30 cannon. One prototype was constructed in 1941. The tank was lost in battle.
The KV-220-2 had its turret removed (The turret and KV-220-2 were both used in the defense of Leningrad) it was fitted with a KV-1 turret and F-32 cannon. The tank was lost in battle, supposedly later repaired, and sent to a training unit.
Where I got it
This is the Trumpeter 09542 kit in 1/35 scale, of the ‘German Super Heavy StuG E-100’.
What if Germany’s plans for a new series of tanks late in WWII had materialized?
The super heavy end of the Entwicklung (from German Entwicklung, “development”) E-series may have been represented by the E-100 tank chassis with ‘Maus’ type turret and two optional artillery guns, 15cm/L46 or 17cm PaK46.
Work on E-tanks was abandoned before the end of WWII.
Where I got it
This is the Trumpeter 05552 kit in 1/35 scale, of the ‘Russian KV-5 Super Heavy Tank’.
KV-5 (Object 225) – A cancelled project for a super-heavy tank. Armament was to be a 107mm ZiS-6 gun in a large turret and machine-gun in a small secondary turret.
Weight was projected as about 100 tons, and the tank was to have 150-180mm of armor. Project development began in June 1941, however was cancelled due to the Siege of Leningrad, in which all developmental operations at the Kirov Plant were halted.
The project fell out of favour from the more advanced heavy tank designs, and no prototype was built.
