KV-1C with MH (USSR, TT-5, gift box, magazine for 6 shells with recharging)
Changes relative to the first iteration of the supertest.
- Added historical background:
Beginning in 1941, G. V. Barabash, a teacher at the Red Army’s Military Academy of Mechanization and Motorization, developed at least 5 variants of mechanized loading for Soviet combat vehicles. The most perfect scheme of shells feeding, providing 12-18 shots per minute, was suggested in July 1943. The basis for the development was KV-1C. The tank received a modified turret with two hatches in the wall for loading shells and a developed aft niche for ammunition. Also the shells were in mechanized stowage on the floor of the fighting compartment, under the gun. Since the mechanism did not involve full automation of the process, the crew kept a loader. Representatives of the SABTU of the Red Army, not trying to carry out experiments, opposed the engineer’s proposals, and by early 1944 the mechanism for 76.2 mm guns had already lost relevance. After the war G.V. Barabash managed to obtain copyright certificates for several of his proposals. Probably later they were considered by the design teams which designed the loading mechanisms for Soviet tanks of 1950-1960s.
- A detailed description of the tank has been added:
V level Soviet heavy tank. The machine is the only one at its level equipped with a multiple-round recharge mechanism. The unique feature allows you to show incredible efficiency when you need to quickly inflict damage on the enemy or support fire allies.

Reverse recharge mechanism, good rate of fire
- Ammunition: c 100 to 90
