Hello everyone, what everyone whispered about and hinted at was confirmed by SerB: KV-1S is getting split. KV-1S will be tier 5. KV-85 (KV-1S with a bigger turret), KV-100 and KV-122 (which is basically a KV-1S hull with bigger 1800mm turret ring and IS turret) will stay on tier 6. Therefore, KV-1S will be a faster, but less armored alternative to KV-1, the tier 6 vehicle will not lose its 122mm gun (looks like SerB won the argument).
