Two new plastic sets have been added to the range of Soviet forces available as they storm into Berlin for Flames Of War at the tail end of World War II. With that in mind check out both the IS-2 Heavy Tank Company and Heavy Assault Gun Company…
Blasting Through Armour
Making a mockery of most armour towards the end of the war the Soviet’s IS-2 Heavy Tank was able to smash apart even Tiger tanks on the battlefield. Even gun emplacements were shivering at the prospect of having to face these armour behemoths…
This tank also sported a machine gun in the back of the tanks turret. While this can’t ‘fire’ in game it acts as a defensive weapon stopping troops from clambering around on the back of the tank and keeping the crew that little bit safer.
Matching the IS-2 we also have a look at the ISU-152 assault guns which were basically used as siege weapons. Buildings, bunkers, outposts and more were ground under-track by these vehicles.
These vehicles would normally be found on the flanks of an attacking force dealing with enemy Panzers and anti-tank guns. They were perfect at supporting infantry and were a pain to deal with for the German defenders.
What do you think of these new options?
