Supertest: K-2 Soviet Tier VIII Premium Heavy Tank

3 min read

To end 2021 in style, Wargaming decided to give us what we had all been waiting for, the one thing that was missing in World of Tanks: another Premium heavy tank! The K-2 is a brand new Soviet heavy tank coming to World of Tanks Supertest, and if you think you’ve might have seen this tank in the game, you are not mistaken.

The K-2 is actually an early Object 701 prototype, also known as IS-4. Featuring the IS-4 hull with the initial IS-4 turret design and gun, Wargaming changed the characteristics to fit Tier VIII and we got a new upcoming Premium vehicle!

The vehicle features reliable armour for its tier. The frontal hull armour reaches 160 mm, while the turret armour reaches 250 mm. Its rear is also protected by relatively thick armour plates. Its good durability of 1,700 HP allows you to emerge victorious from many duels. It has a top forward speed of 30 km/h, and specific power of 13.6 h.p./t.

The tank is equipped with a 122 mm D-25T gun that causes 390 HP of damage per shot. The penetration value of the standard shell is 196 mm, while the special HEAT shell can penetrate 270 mm of armour. It has an aiming time of 2.9 s, dispersion of 0.44 m, and reloading time of 15 s.

The K-2 is a well-protected heavy tank that can initiate attacks. Thanks to its armour, the vehicle can draw enemy fire, allowing fewer armoured allies to advance. However, do not forget about its mediocre mobility. Taking into account the strengths and weaknesses will help unleash the full potential of this vehicle.

All characteristics are with a crew trained to 100% and subject to change before the final release.
