An IS-2 tank passing by Sherman Firefly. Shermans and Stalins almost met in Korea, but the Chinese regiment armed with the IS tanks was ultimately not deployed.

You don't see IS-2s these days anymore, just T-34/85 models.

Actually T-34/85s are quite common tanks here. The earlier version, the T-34/76 is a problem though - but only the ones in running order, static ones in museums and on monuments are more popular. In Poznan alone, there are four T-34s in Armoured Warfare Museum (one T-34/76, one running T-34/85, one as a gate guardian and one which was damaged in 1945 and used as a film prop to film scenes inside the tank) and two in Armament Museum (one T-34/76 and one T-34/85 which is occasionaly open for visitors to go inside). And perhaps some wrecks in Biedrusko shooting range, but they do not count.

IS tanks, especially IS-3, look so enormous until you put them next to a different tank...

That would have been a nasty fight for the Shermans...they'd have gotten their teeth kicked in on the tank v tank fights against these things.

Brilliant photo! I don't think the British deployed Fireflies to Korea, the Centurion and the Churchill were deployed there though.

I kinda messed up here. I ment Sherman tanks in general, not Fireflies. And the IS tanks were at that time aviable in Chinese army, but were not deployed.
