Trumpeter 1:35 -  Soviet JS-1 Heavy Tank - Plastic model kit #05587

The Soviet heavy tank JS-1, a modernised version of the KV-1 and KV-2 series, was put into service in the midst of the Second World War. High production rates and quick testing of the JS-1 resulted from the appearance of the newer German Panther and Tiger I tanks and the lack of adequate military equipment to fight against them. However, even after several modifications of its design, the JS-1 proved to be unsuccessful in combat because of its armament that was not strong enough to defeat German tanks. The JS-1 was soon replaced by the improved JS-2.

During the war, the JS-1 was also known as the JS-85, where "85" stood for the calibre of the tank gun, and "JS" - for Joseph Stalin (Russian: ИС - Иосиф Сталин). The JS-1 marked the beginning of the well-known "Joseph Stalin" tank line.
