JS-3 Heavy Tank


Heavy tank developed form the JS-2 incorporating strikingly modern and improved armour and the “frying pan” turret that came to be used on many Soviet tanks designs over the next 50 years. There is still debate on whether this tank saw action in WW2, the general opinion is it missed action in Europe only arriving in time for the victory parades. It was used by Egypt during the 1967  6 day war where it performed disapointingly against more agile modern MBTs
