The IS (Iosef Stalin) heavy tanks were the ultimate heavy tanks developed by the Soviet Union. They evolved from the earlier KV series and were some of the most widely used tanks ever produced by the USSR. First developed in 1942 and entering combat in 1944, this series of heavy tanks saw action in World War II, going head-to-head with German tanks such as the Panther. Tiger and King Tiger. Post war IS-2s and IS-3s were exported to China, Cuba and North Korea. With numerous kits available of almost every variant across a broad range of scales, plus accessories and upgrades galore, this title makes for a fascinating and packed modelling treatment.
