KV-1C-Soviet heavy tank of the great Patriotic war. The abbreviation KV means "Klim Voroshilov" - the official name of serial Soviet heavy tanks produced in 1940—1943. Index 1C means "rapid" modification of the first production model. This combat vehicle was developed by the design Bureau of the Chelyabinsk tractor plant (CHTZ) in may-July 1942 in connection with complaints from commanders of the Workers 'and peasants' red army (RKKA) about the low mobility and reliability of the original version of the KV-1 heavy tank. In order to reduce the overall weight of the tank, its dimensions were slightly reduced and its onboard reservation was weakened. As a result of these measures, the average and maximum speed of the tank increased, along with the introduction of a new transmission, it was possible to slightly improve the overall reliability of the machine during its operation in the troops. Compared with the KV-1, the armament remained the same, but its effectiveness increased — the tank commander's seat was equipped with an observation tower, which improved the field of view.
