I fully support the ISBlue as being the greatest maritime fighting vessel of the century. Why they never used it at the DDay landings I will never know.

The IS2 was without a doubt the best vessel at sea during WW2. Not only did its quad barrel 122mm turret seed destruction to any fleets it came up against, it could also submerge itself much like that of a U-Boat.

Its heavy armor rendered air attacks useless and it also contained a small aircraft bay. Coincidentally, its bays consisted of flying IS2, clearly the best aircraft of WW2 thus allowing it to take on even the best of the Luftwaffe. The flying IS2 packed plenty of firepower to take out any target, superior armor and its rear firing MG could take care of any pursuing aircraft. :IS2:

but they were used! the submerged IS2s were used to clear mines so that other inferior fighting ships were not damaged during the landings :IS2:

Don't forget the 20 glorious rear mounted 50 cal machine guns mounted on the ISBLUE's stern as well, able to down the largest of enemy air threats and even useful against most naval vessels. :IS2:

The US military scrapped repeated attempts to copy the IS2 and ISBLUE for its own arsenal in 1946 after the war, citing the unfortunate truth that it is impossible to play God.

Careful, fellow IS-2 comrade. That would imply that there was a contraption capable of damaging the mighty IS-2. And we all know that, with the possible exception of another IS-2, no such machine has ever existed. :IS2:
