Trumpeter 1:35 - Soviet JS-2M Heavy Tank Early - Plastic model kit #05589

After it became clear that the JS-1 was incapable of destroying the German Tiger and Panther tanks, the Soviet engineers came up with an upgraded model of the JS series - the JS-2 heavy tank. The production of its early version began in 1943 in Chelyabinsk. The JS-2 was equipped with the A-19 gun, also known as the 122 mm gun, with higher armour-piercing qualities. In addition, compared to the JS-1 and its prototype models of the KV series, the JS-2 had thicker front armour and a muzzle recoil compensator. Besides, it was much lighter and faster.

In 1944, the model was modernised once again and renamed the JS-2M. The changes mainly transformed the chassis construction; the transmission and fighting compartments were relocated to the back of the tank. Later the same modifications were made to almost all JS-2 tanks remaining after the war.
