    I don't think I've ever seen a present day clip of a KV-1 running.

    No idea where this one is but it looks really good:

    Nice renovation but the tank in service I believe was not so successful.

    I wonder if that was taken at the really big Russian tank museum... Kubinka?

    The cyrillics at the start of the video read "Museum of the Battle of Leningrad".

    Seeing what one really looks like 'in the wild' suggests a late war design to me. Hard to believe this brute was on the battlefield in 1939 against the Finns.

    Must have yielded a lot of 'uh oh' thoughts from Panzer III and IV crewmen.
