Historical Reference

The Thunder is a special version of the KV-1S heavy tank, designed for Operation Onslaught. While it received improved frontal armor, it is less maneuverable. The Thunder's other parameters, including its notorious 122-mm gun, are inherited directly from its forerunner. With a glowing star on the turret’s side, the Thunder is notable for its unique appearance and movement animation.
