Historical:

The IS Tank (IS in Cyrillic "_Ìá_́", meaning the Joseph Stalin or Iosif Stalin in Cyrillic "_Ìá__Ì_ååãå_Ì_åãÌ£ _́åãÌ¢_åÁÌ_å_Ìö_Ì___") was a series of heavy tanks developed as a successor to the KV-series by the Soviet Union during World War II. It was named after Soviet leader Joseph Stalin. The heavy tank was designed with thick armour to counter theGerman 88 mm guns, and carried a main gun that was capable of defeating the German Tiger and Panther tanks. It was mainly a breakthrough tank, firing a heavy high-explosive shell that was useful against entrenchments and bunkers. The IS-2 was put into service in April 1944, and was used as a spearhead by the Red Army in the final stage of the Battle of Berlin.
