Some historical stories about IS-2 which i just found.

JS-2 in Comparison to the German Counterparts

Foreword

A comparison of the JS with German heavy tanks of WWII shows the big difference in design and war theories between the USSR and Germany. For example, according to the Soviet classification system, the JS-2 was a heavy tank, while the Panther was a medium tank according to the German classification system. In fact, both tanks were of equal weight. So why the difference of classification? Simply, because Soviet tank designers thought the weight of a vehicle to be the most important parameter by which to define most other parameters like engines, armor, armament, ammunition, fuel capacity, suspension and so on. At the same time, German designers distinguished tanks by their battle capabilities — mostly by armament and armoring. That's why Pz-IV's of the first series were considered

Also i don't know if it was mentioned before: write "greatest tank of WW2" and hit "I'm feeling lucky" in google ;)
:D

Even though Battlefield.ru does downplay the true terror of IS-2, as only thing it required was to show itself on the battlefield and the enemy was already fleeing.

Outstanding stuff.


I mentioned the Council of Uralmash to them, and brought unto them the holy icon of :IS2:. Maybe they'll adopt it too, for its obvious greatness, rather than simply linking the image from here ...

They're already discussing how to further proselytize the true faith, too.
I saw a couple of false altars there... BT-5 for instance.
Do we need to purify them to bring them back towards the true faith?

That submerged IS2 in that pic is only waiting for prey.

They used an :IS2: to fix the oil spill in the gulf of mexico
Which was likely caused by a KT. And look how long it took them to fix it.
Sorry to correct you Kraut, but you are indeed very much wrong there. Sadly the spill was also started by IS2. :IS2: was practising some shooting in Senegal and decided to target the Deepwater Horizon. And we all know what happened then...

You got it wrong

Sorry to inform you, but you are wrong. Sadly the spill was also started by IS2. :IS2: was practising some shooting in Senegal and noticed an enemy KT on the Deepwater Horizon off-shore platform. And we all know what happened then...
Fixed it a little

But yeah, Operation Static-Kill was a big lie, they simply asked the :IS2: to go to the bottom of the sea and stand above the blowout until they find a better solution. (That pic was a simulation before they actually tried it)
