With the release of the Update 1.1 Common Test, a new (and previously unannounced) vehicle was added to the game files -- a tier VII Soviet heavy tank, the IS-2M. Read on for the stats of this vehicle as they currently stand, as well as some images of the vehicle (all courtesy of Rykoszet.info).
In-Game Description: The vehicle is a modification of the IS-2 developed from the early 1950s through the early 1960s. Before the T-10 development, the IS-2 was the main U.S.S.R. heavy tank. It remained in service until the mid 1990s. The tank chassis, power unit, and turret were significantly changed. Some chassis components were adopted from the IS-3, as well as splash shields and spare parts kit. The rear machinegun was removed from the turret. It was replaced with an additional fan for the fighting compartment. All gun embrasures were sealed. In addition, the standard engine was replaced with the V-54K-IS engine. The tank ammo capacity was increased to 34–35 shells, while the standard gun (the 122 mm D-25 gun) remained unchanged. However, the gun elevation mechanism was improved. Some vehicles were equipped with the TVN-2 night-vision devices. Besides this, the new R-113 radio was equipped instead of the standard one. In addition, the driver's observation devices were improved.
