Flames of War SU: IS-2 Guards Heavy Tank Company (Plastic!)

IS-2 Guards Heavy Tank Company
(SBX36)
Includes five plastic IS-2 obr 1943 or IS-2 obr 1944 tanks, six tank commander figures and one decal sheet.

When the IS-2 heavy tank entered service with the Guards Heavy Tank Companies of the Red Army, they were the most powerful tanks in the world. Better armoured than the German Tiger, they mounted a 122mm gun capable of destroying any tank in service or smashing an anti-tank gun nest in a single hit.

IS-2 obr 1943
The IS (Iosif Stalin) heavy tank in often referred to as the “tank of victory” in Soviet sources. The development of the IS series of tanks started in late 1942, but only really gained momentum in 1943 as a response to the performance of the German Panther and Tiger tanks at the battle of Kursk. Its main disadvantage of the gun was its huge, two-part ammunition, which was difficult and slow to load, and only allowed 28 rounds to be carried. But it proved slightly lighter and faster than the heaviest KV model 1942 tank, with thicker front armour and an improved turret design.

IS-2 obr 1944
The definitive and most numerous variant of the IS-2, the 1944 model is sometimes referred to as the 'IS-2m' - note the lower-case 'm', not to be confused with the IS-2M, which was the modernised version used in the 1950s. It carried the same D-25T 122mm gun, but with an improved breech mechanism for slightly faster loading. However, with its unweildy two-part ammunition, it was still fairly slow, so it retains ROF 1. Its main difference was a simpler cast hull front, which was easier to produce and replaced the stepped front with a smooth, sloping glacis. The result is the IS-2 obr 1944 has 11 front armour in Flames Of War.

Turret-rear MG
While not very practical for long-range shooting, a machine-gun mounted in the back of the turret is perfect for discouraging boarders in an assault.

A Turret-rear MG may not shoot, it is purely defensive.

In assault combat, if a hit from an Infantry or Gun team is allocated to a Tank team armed with a Turret-rear MG, the team that scored the hit must take another Skill Test.


No Saves from Big Guns
Some weapons are just so powerful that there is no chance of surviving a hit from them. These heavy guns are often mounted in tanks and self-propelled guns designed to break through enemy defensive lines.

If they pass the second Skill Test, the assaulting team gets past the machine-gun to hit the tank and the tank must take an Armour Save as normal.
If they fail the second Skill Test, the machine-gunner managed to keep the infantry at bay and protect the tank, and the assaulting team fails to score a hit.

Bailed Out Tank teams do not benefit from their Turret-rear MG.

Infantry teams, Gun teams, Passengers, and Unarmoured vehicles automatically fail their Saves when hit by a Breakthrough Gun or a Bunker Buster. This does not apply to Artillery Bombardments.


IS-85
A third option which this box allows you to build is the IS-85, also known as the IS-1. It was created as a temporary stop-gap measure, using the 1943 model armed with an 85 mm gun. Many IS-85s were re-fitted with 122mm guns before they saw service. The IS-85 first featured in Mid-war Monsters as an experimental tank, but it did see service during the first half of 1944. You can field it in Red Bear as an option in the Gvardeyskiy Tyazhelyy Tankovy Polk.
