same IS2 gun right?
Garbage tank. All its armor is in the front, and no real side armor. Its gun is weak and really low velocity compared to other tanks that the era it was in.(Post WW II, what it was designed for) The Egyptians(I think) really thought it was a pill box (As seen here: 3.bp.blogspot.com ) and got owned by Patton and Centurtion Tanks that simply just out flanked it and destroyed it. It also only had a 150 mile range and had a terrible gun loading system from its previous brother, the IS-2. Good tank for WWII, but not for the Cold War Battlefields.
