KV-1s were produced in Leningrad and aided in the defense of the city, as far as pushing the Germans to Berlin, tank types changed, certain weapons were fazed out and replaced, and different pieces of equipment took on multiple variations. I would suppose the biggest revolution to take place within the Red Army would be how much their command structure evolved and became more adept at planning and maintaining large offensive operations. The bottom line is that, in my opinion, the thing which allowed the Soviets to win over the Nazis was their increasing command flexibility, industry, and having support from the western allies. (The Soviets could have fought a war alone, but it would have been much longer and bloodier). Your question would be answerable if it was simply "what weapons did the Soviets use to win against the Nazis in the battle for Stalingrad and Leningrad"
