The IS-2 and its variants are among the most iconic heavy tanks of all time. Developed and produced in the 1940s, these tough and reliable brawlers remained in service way past the Second World War and even received an overhaul in the 1950s. The modernized
received external fuel tanks on the rear hull, stowage bins on both sides of the hull, and protective skirting along the top edges of the tracks. In the game, this means slightly more HP, bigger ammo capacity, and a slightly faster aim time compared to the classic IS-2. Unfortunately, this comes at the cost of some added weight, which makes the modernized version a little more sluggish, but by no means slow. The IS-2M is one of the best brawlers in the game, especially for Tier VII, with tough armor and unmatched alpha damage of 390!
