Soviet IS-2 tanks were exported to China in the early 1950s and were used during the Korean War from 1950 through 1953. According to American reconnaissance data, at least four Chinese tank companies deployed in Korea had the IS-2 tanks, with five tanks in each company. The IS-2 tank was in service until the late 1950s. The production was discontinued due to a shortage of spare parts and the launch of the Type 59 project. A few IS-2 tanks were exported to Vietnam, where they fought in the final stage of the Indochina War of 1946–1954.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • 50 more hitpoints than the Soviet IS
  • Ability to fire HEAT rounds
  • High mobility and low terrain resistance for a heavy tank
  • 37km/hr top speed which can be easily achieved on flat terrain
  • 90mm frontal armor sloped at a 55 degree angle gives the IS-2 good protection


Cons:


  • Sluggish when going uphill compared to soviet IS due to low engine power
  • Research of top gun is not carried over from Soviet tree as some might believe
  • Poor gun depression; results in difficulty cresting and using cover
  • Poor gun accuracy at medium to long range
  • Long aim time even when equipped with a gun laying drive


Performance

It should be noted that the IS and the IS-2 share a lot of characteristics and should be played similarly. In comparison, the IS-2's frontal armor is much better, has slightly worse gun depression, and can be angled similarly to German heavies. Furthermore, the IS-2 is very quick and nimble for a heavy.
