The JS-2 had a 122mm D-25T main gun and 6 road wheels to improve soft ground track performance. In 1944 new specifications included new armour tempering, a 60-degree glacis replaced the 30-degree and the driver’s front hatch was removed. Also a relocated wider porthole, improved mantlet, increased lower hull side armor and a new periscope sight. The commander’s cupola moved to the left and a 12.7mm anti-aircraft machine gun attached. In 1944 2,250 JS-2’s wereproduced and no further improvements were made until 1954. In late April 1945 Soviet forces began their assault on Berlin capturing the city on May 2, 1945. As part of the operations JS-2 Heavy tanks were called in whenever Soviet forces needed a German tank or building destroyed. The use of HE (High Explosive) incendiary ammunition made the JS-2 very deadly. Regular Guard units had 3 regiments of 65 JS-2s per regiment but the Independent Guard units had far fewer. The 88th Independent Guards Heavy Tank Brigade was part of the 1st Belorussian Front.
