Good enough I thought it worth posting, and a fairly rare tank.

 

KV-2

They even had to put a chain around it to keep that beast contained.

I found it on a Radio Free Europe web page.

 

'Soviet Paradise' On Show During Nazi Nightmare

 

Pic was taken in Prague. Much more info at the link, pic is about 2/3rds the way down the page.

 

Caption for the pic is:

 

A Soviet KV-2 tank being transported to the exhibition.

Gerbeev says this formidable “fortress on wheels” created a sensation when it arrived in Prague and gave hope to many Czechoslovaks that the Nazis -- who had recently faced their first major setback in the battle for Moscow -- would soon be defeated.
