The IS-6 is a high-power breakthrough tank which was created during 1943-1944 to fight new German heavy tanks and self-propelled guns. Despite the fact that after a series of tests this tank was not been adopted by the army, many components and solutions of it were used during development of other Soviet tanks, including the IS-7 heavy tank.



It is a premium tank with magnificent armour, a powerful gun (122mm D-30T) and good dynamics for a heavy tank. This tank is equally good for aggressive breakthrough and holding important points. The IS-6 - one of the best tanks on the battlefield. It imposes its own rules on the enemy during a duel and encourages allies to take decisive action.
