KV-1S - A lighter variant of late 1942 with higher speed, but thinner armor. A new, smaller, cast turret and improved rear hull were used. 1370 were built.

In response to criticisms, the lighter KV-1S was released, with thinner armor and a smaller, lower turret in order to reclaim some speed. Importantly, the KV-1S also had a commander's cupola with all-around vision blocks, a first for a Soviet heavy tank. However, the thinning-out of the armor called into question why the tank was being produced at all, when the T-34 could seemingly do everything the KV could do and much more cost efficient. The Soviet heavy tank program was close to cancellation in mid-1943.
