The IS-2 (Object 240) is a Soviet heavy tank from the WWII period. The
IS, standing for Joseph Stalin, was the official name for Soviet
mass-produced heavy tanks produced in 1943-1953. The IS-2 was the most
powerful and most heavily armored Soviet tank during the war. After the
war ended, IS-2 tanks were modernized and were in service in the
Soviet/Russian Armed Forces until 1995.
