The KV-1 (named by a famous Russian general Kliment Voroshilov) naturally had a high profile and was easy to spot and recognize if out of cover from camouflage. It was a slow moving, lumbering giant of a tank but, consequently could hit back 3x harder than what if would receive on the battle field. I'm not trying to butcher your work ProgV but your KV-9 design has serious drawbacks but is a nice concept. :meow:

In fact, the KV line of tanks has always been considered a bit lacking on the gun department. KV-1's had the same 75 mm. gun of T-34's, which was enough to knock down the lightly armored German tanks of the initial stages of the war, but uncapable of taking on heavier designs who came into battle later on. The one great advantage it had was it's massive armor. The KV was invulnerable to any German guns save the 8.8, and remained almost invincible until 1942. Once that advantage was lost, the days of the KV were counted.

There were later models, which improved its firepower with a 85mm gun, but this was simply too weak for a heavy tank (by that time T-34's were already armed with 85 mm).

If this is a KV walker, then I don't even want to know how an IS walker would look like... it would be the stuff of nightmares!

I wanna know, the IS is a good tank (based on it's history and some game play on world of tanks), though I doubt having a really high profile would benefit the tank.

ImmanuelWolf Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2012
You have a valid point, but remember these ain't tanks, they're walkers/mechs/whathever you wanna call them. They're meant to be high profiled and easily noticeable. Rule of Cool at its finest.

Sure, in real life, they would suck big time due to several flaws, such as more complex crew training requirements, higher maintenance costs, and blatant, easily exploitable weak spots (the legs), but hey, who doesn't want to drive a giant killer robot into the battlfield on its fantasies XD

Well, since 1/35 scale tanks are pretty common, it can be scrath-builded or semi-scratch-builded from other kits. But i think your design will be much bigger than actual KV tanks, so model of it, made of 1/35 parts and even some 1/100 parts (15 mm wargame scale), sould be about 1/87 at least, or in even smaller scales. Anyway, i don`t offer my hands to make it - it`s just an idea that there is nothing impossible for a good scratch-builders out there. So, ProgV, it`s just a question of a proper scale. ;)

yeah scrath-builded is a great idea! although it must be a huge model but i still want to make a 1/35 scale, i mean a 40cm tall mecha sit on your desk...wow. maybe it will be too expensive to build it all by kits so i think use material like pitch foam to make those blocky parts, then add kits as details is a better way.
