Most likely the 2nd one is what we have, here. Not entirely made up, but.... kinda crusty.

Stats in the link above.  It's pretty much a watered down IS that is a little more mobile.

KV-122 is pretty much old KV-1S with less depression but more health, view range, and better gun stats tier higher.

Compared to IS and its variants it has less armor and little less DPM but its more mobile (almost medium levels), has better view range and gun handling.

These are the gun stats between the IS-2 and the KV-122 from wiki. They're identical. What am I missing? I don't see the improved gun handling.

Soft stats. AKA WG hidden balancing stats that actually matter

So the KV-1S is coming back as a premium?

i am not surprised. 

Almost every single tank they removed, came back as a premium. Only exceptions are WTF and T-50-2. And as far as I know, these are the only ones. The 4202 has returned. The AFK panther came back on console, and I can only imagine it is a matter of time for the PC version.Then, after that, the Lorraine will return.

The 4202 didn't really come back. The 4202 was fun becuase of HESH lols and now it has a 17 pounder. It looks the same and bears the same name but isn't at all the same tank.
