The project of N. L. Dukhov developed in April 1941. A prototype was to be produced by November 1941. However, the work was discontinued due to the outbreak of the Soviet–German war.

The KV-4 is the soviet tier 8 heavy tank, the alternative to the IS-3. The KV-4 is an armored behemoth, sporting insane armor for its tier while being really slow. The top gun has good penetration and standard DPM. Overall, sidescraping in this tank is almost always extremely profitable if done correctly.

Performance

Remind that this tank is really slow. Don't rush too fast. Wait for your teammates. Never try to be a hero and go alone. If you enter high-tier match, just follow your teammates and support them.
