On January 27th, the lifting of the siege of Leningrad was announced to the entire world, and in honor of this event, a celebratory fireworks display was held.

The KV-2 (ZiS-6) is available for Golden Eagles and is here to stay!

When: From January 26th (11:00 GMT).

Where: USSR > Army > Premium vehicles.

About this tank

  • The KV-2 (ZiS-6) is essentially a KV-2 with a 1940 model turret fitted with a long-barrelled 107 mm ZIS-6 cannon, mounted instead of the 152 mm M-10T howitzer. This newly fitted gun has brilliant armor penetration — combining it with this tank’s decent mobility makes the KV-2 (ZiS-6) in general fun to play when sniping enemies from great distances.
