The KV-2B was an upgraded design compared to the KV-1A. It has an asymmetric gun mantlet, and 35mm of applique armour added to the front of the turret. It also changed it's armament again to a 152mm howitzer. Rarely, these models were fitted with flamethrowers.

GABTU requested in 1940 a KV tank to be equipped with 107 mm gun with a muzzle velocity of 730-750m/s in order to penetrate 100-110mm of armour at 1000m range. The gun must fire quickly, have high penetration, and have sufficient stock of ammunition. Must have an armour piercing shell and a high explosive grenade. At the time, the most suitable gun was the 107mm M-60.
