KV-VI Behemoth (Soviet Super Heavy Tank)

Share

This is the largest and longest model I have made and the following are missing. It took me 5 weeks.


The KV-VI Behemoth is an invented and UNREAL Soviet fighter car created by Brian Fowler in 1995 and broadcast online. It seems that the modeller gathered several towers in an elongated chassis and as time went by, a small story was added to make it look real.


Features:

-It has 7 towers, which would involve carrying a lot of crew. But I could only use them all if I shot from the side, since I couldn't use them all in the front.

-Its length makes it an impossible vehicle to move through urban areas, to pass through bridges and to move through non-flat areas. That is, it could not move.

-No weight specifications, but if the KV-2 weighed 52 tons, it would weigh more than 150 tons and regardless of how much armor it would carry. With two 600CV engines, its mobility, which in itself would have to be bad for what was said in the second point, would be bad.

The history of this vehicle can be found online (but it is not real, just an invention): According to Manuel, this is what happens when a Russian engineer drinks too much vodka.


This model corresponds to a Soviet tank of about 15 and a half meters in length, 138 tons in weight, 15 crew (plus a political commissioner) and several turrets taken from other tanks such as the KV-I and II, Bt-5, T- 60 and T-38 in which it assembles an armament of 2 guns of 152 mm, 2 of 76.2 mm and one of 45 mm, 2 machine guns of 12.7 mm (ideal as anti-aircraft) other 16 machine guns of 7.62 and 16 rocket launchers (the rails that they are seen on the turret on the left) and two 1933 model tank flamethrowers. It had the capacity to ford rivers up to 3 meters deep (due to its barge average 4.5 meters high).


This monstrous tank was built by the Soviet Union during the Second World War. Before the fact that the trorretas were hindering each other when turning and that the barge also turned slowly, Stalin replied "he doesn't need to turn, he just has to drive to Berlin." Three prototypes were built, the first in service in December 1941 in the defense of Moscow (where the Germans never arrived, even though at that time it was believed that they would arrive) and was completely destroyed during an accidental explosion due to a failure The second prototype went into service in January 1942 on the Leningrad front, during its first confrontation with the Germans, it first broke in half and then one of the flamethrowers exploded, destroying the vehicle and everything else in quite a few meters. the round. Shortly after and also in leningrad the third and last prototype tamboen was destroyed.


After the prototype disasters the project was canceled and many of the design team members spent the rest of their lives in Siberian Gulags.


On a personal note:

Whoever designed this iron monster seems to have gained inspiration in the bosses of the Metal Slug videogame saga

This thing makes Apocalypse tank look like a light assault tank.

If I were to ask... what would be it's stats line? A-la useing 7th ed warhammer rules?

Is this made out of paper? Impressive!

Gaijin should add this tank into the War Thunder, since they're a massive ass joke of a developer studio.

Everyone: "why are you removing the Maus?"
Gaijin: "because its too hard to balance."
Everyone: "did you even try to balance it?"
Gaijin: "uhh... well... you see...uhhh"

your model is pretty close to the supposed "blueprints" of what the vehicle could've possibly looked like, based on what the guy said it "supposedly looked" like.

If you want to do something huge like this again, I remember the Germans developed both a 20-man crewed mega tank that was a rolling battle-station, it even had 2(?) motorbikes on board, essentially making it a dieselpunk version of the Halo Elephant, as well as a train-engine sized artillery piece.
