The Iosef super-heavy tank is armed with an efficient combination of weapons, each of which has been proven on other tanks. Its main weapon is a 183mm (7.2”) D-47T gun. Although not designed to destroy vehicles, the mass of this weapon’s round can knock out any tank, no matter how heavy. Its powerful explosive shell is overkill against infantry, but is death to bunkers. The secondary weapon is an ATO-45B flamethrower mounted alongside the main gun. It is ideal for destroying infantry in buildings and strongpoints. That’s if there are still some in range when the Iosef gets there. Usually there’s only wreckage left, or the enemy has fled.
The vehicle is presented here in its Zverograd pattern camouflage, as observed around the Doomed City circa 1947.
