On June 22, 1941, Nazi Germany launched a sudden offensive against the Soviet Union, which led to the tragic Soviet-German War during WW II (known as the Great Patriotic War in Soviet history). The bloody battle of Stalingrad in Sudder became a turning point in WW II. , The Soviet Union began to switch to a strategic counteroffensive, and in the summer of 1943, the famous Kursk tank battle in the history of WW II broke out in the Kursk region of the Soviet Union. After that, the Soviet Union urgently needed more powerful tanks to deal with the German Tigers and Leopards, so the Central Design Bureau immediately adopted the KV-1S chassis and replaced it with a new turret (and this turret laid the foundation for the future Stalin tank turret). The excessive model is the KV-85 tank. In order to deploy heavy tanks as soon as possible and meet the needs of the front line, Joseph Yakovlevich Kotin (Joseph Yakovlevich Kotin) improved the firepower of the KV-85 by the Central Design Bureau under his leadership. After some tests, the IS-2 heavy tank 122mm/D-25T artillery was finally used instead of the original artillery. This is the prototype of the KV-122 heavy tank, but this tank has not been approved for production because the Soviet army has developed it. Another heavy tank with 122mm artillery was proposed-the IS-2 heavy tank, which will be known later.
