Kv2 1940 model

The KV2 “Dreadnought“ mounted a 152mm gun in its heavy turret and its armour made it invulnerable to most German anti tank weapons. A single KV2 managed to hold up the advance of the 6th Panzer division for 2 days in June 1941 until it was finally destroyed by an 88mm flak gun moved up to close range. The factories producing these tanks were overrun in 1941 when it ceased to be produced. A German unit employing captured examples was said to be earmarked for the proposed assault on Malta.
