Tamiya Military 1/35 JS2 Mod 1944 Heavy Tank Kit
Designed as a breakthrough tank with armor that could withstand the fearsome German 88mm gun and an armament that could take on the Tiger and Panther tanks, the JS-2 (named after Joseph Stalin, IS-2 Josif Stalin in the original Russian) entered service in 1944. Armed with a massive A-19 122mm main gun and up to 120mm of armor in vital areas, the JS-2 was a very formidable weapon that was better in every way than its predecessor, the KV-1. The Model 1944 is easily distinguished by its unique muzzle brake and sloped front glacis armor.
- Powerful form of the heavy tank is accurately reproduced.
- Thorough research have resulted in precise reproductions of the muzzle brake, sloped front glacis, and other parts unique to the Model 1944.
- Photo-etched parts included to depict engine intake grille for added detail.
- Both belt-type and assembly-type tracks included to provide more build options for modelers.
- 1 commander figure and 1 loader torso figure included.
- The perfect addition to a display of Tamiya 1/35 scale Russian tanks or line it up against some of Tamiya's 1/35 scale German AFVs.
