Soviet Heavy Tank Characteristics

0
0
The following table compares the prospective post-war heavy tanks of the USSR (the T-34 is included for completeness' sake, but they seem to have merged the T-34 and T-34-85 into one tank). The table was approved fairly quickly after the war, since the IS-3 and IS-7 already have its index, but the IS-7 still has characteristics of the Object 257 rather than a later model, and the IS-4 is still referred to as Object 701.
