Description Extended Information
 
Hobby Master HG1106 Russian JS-II Heavy Tank - 27th Guards Separate Heavy Tank Regiment, 21st Army, Viipuri, Finland, June 1944 (1:48 Scale) "By powerful artillery fire, air strikes, and a wave of attacking tanks, we're supposed to swiftly crush the enemy."
- Marshal Georgi K. Zhukov

The JS-II (Josef Stalin) was a development of the earlier KV series of Russian tanks. It was a lighter tank than the KVs with an improved transmission and suspension and a re-designed hull and turret. The first examples appeared in 1944, helping to exploit the strategic initiative which the Red Army had achieved by that stage of WWII on the eastern front. A massive vehicle, the tank was well-armed and armored, the only drawback of the early versions was a slow rate of fire using separate charges and shells. This was remedied by the time the JS-III entered production. Symbolically, Josef Stalin tanks were at the head of the advance to Berlin in 1945, and remained in production after the war being the world's most powerful tank for well over a decade.

Pictured here is a 1:48 scale Russian-built JS-II tank attached to the 27th Guards Separate Heavy Tank Regiment, 21st Army, then deployed to Viipuri, Finland, during June 1944. Only 450 pieces produced. Sold Out!
