T-34 - WW II Russian main battle tank. The second most produced tank in the world - number one spot is held by T-55.
T-34 saw action throughout the war between Soviet Union and Germany, and participated in large numbers in the
biggest tank battle in history - Battle of Kursk. Estimates put the total number of tanks (both Soviet and German)
at over 6000.
IS-2 - Iosef Stalin 2 - WW II Russian heavy tank. With 160 mm (6.3 inches) front armor, and a 122 mm main cannon
IS 2 was Soviet Union's answer to German King Tiger. Shells from the 122 mm canon could penetrate front armor of the German Panther.
Explosive shells were very effective against bunkers and dug in guns. IS-2 bunker busting capabilities were used in the last battle of World War II
in Europe - Battle of Berlin
