They were used to eliminate or flush out German forces by destroy entire buildings using their HE rounds. Most JS-2s were assigned to groups of 5 along with a company of infantry comprised of flame throwers and sappers. About sixty seven JS-2s were lost during the battle, most victims of “Faustniks (panzerfausts)”.
