The typical configuration, KVS-2-125, is armed with long-range weapons but can fend off enemies in close quarters.
The KVS-2 is my new-and-improved version of Soviet object 225 (the KV-5). KVS stands for "Krepostovyj Voennyj Samochod," which means "Fortified Fighting Vehicle," as this is the second multi-turret tank to see service in the SRA, the first being the TVS-86 or KVS-1 (I'm not counting the JN-129, since that was an Imperial tank, not a Union tank). The differences between the KV-5 and KVS-2 are quite subtle; I suggest ordering one of each to see what I mean. The most obvious are the weapons: KV-5 is armed with either a 107-mm or 122-mm main gun; KVS-2 is armed with either a 125-mm cannon or 180-mm howitzer, both of which are included in this print. In addition, some K-2s had a sniper's turret mounted atop the main turret, and the tank acted as a mobile sniper's nest. For this reason, I have included two machine gun turrets and one sniper turret, distinguishable by the additional viewport and longer barrel. Unlike KV-5, KVS-2 has evenly-spaced road wheels, as the weight of the tank is more evenly distributed, and therefore the ground pressure is much lower, even though both tanks weigh 100 tonnes. The KVS-2 also has a pointed prow, a feature seen on modern tanks that first appeared on the IS-3, the Rhunnish version of which is designated TSS-20. In short, KVS-2 is my effort to take a real-world experiment that never left the drawing board into a formidable fighting force in my fantasy world.
