Am I the only one who thinks this tank looks more cool than the IS-10?

There is no IS tank designated IS-10, the right one is the T-10 tank or the IS-8, the IS-10 designation is wrong.

And i thought that the IS-6 is still better than this.

If those had entered the Korean war... omg! The Korean war would have become WW3. It's a good thing the Soviets didn't enter the war. Back then in the mid 50 USSR was so much more militarized than the US, I mean, they had the AK-47 mass production for the infantry and various tanks that were somewhat ahead of their time.

I pray we never get to see the horrors of WW3...

Aye. Only about 200 were built, but they certainly outclassed the Pershings/early Pattons that were stationed there. The Americans had caught up by the late 50s though.

Korea is mostly mountainous and not at all ideal for tank combat, let alone heavy ones, so I wouldn't overestimate the IS-4's usefulness. The Pershing was withdrawn from combat in Korea rather quickly due to being to heavy to properly traverse the terrain, and since the IS-4 was a heavy tank that was dropped primarily due to mobility issues I can't imagine it would have fared any better.

They could've been of use during the initial North Korean offensive, when most of the tank battles took place.

Well it may have been king on the ground, but well air superiority would make up for that.

And how would you suggest achieving that? If the USSR had entered the Korean War air superiority would have been nigh impossible for either side to successfully achieve.

Description

Originally developed in competition with the IS-3, the IS-4 (Object 245) was similarly an extensive redesign of the IS-2. The hull was lengthened, with an extra set of road wheels added and an improved engine. Both the hull and turret were uparmoured. Several alternative armaments were explored in paper studies, although ultimately the IS-2's original 122mm gun was retained. An effort was also made to make use of technical data derived from study of the German wartime Panzer V Panther tank, which influenced the layout of the IS-4's engine cooling system. The tank was approved for mass production in 1948 but due to disappointing speed and mobility only 200 were build. Most of these were transferred to the Russian Far East in 1950 in preparation for the planned Soviet intervention in the Korean War. When this operation was aborted the tanks nevertheless remained stationed in the region until their decommissioning in the 1960s.
