On September 7th 1945, the allied nations were staggered by Russia's disclosure of their JS-3 heavy tank at a victory parade in Berlin. Although coded a JS (Josef Stalin) tank, it had a totally different appearance from its preceding models. The one-piece cast turret had a simple flattened hemispherical shape. The maximum thickness of the turret armour reached 250mm. The front hull was constructed by welding three 120mm thick armour plates, forming a shape like a ship's bow. The main armament used the same L/43 122mm gun as the JS-2. The 520 horsepower diesel engine provided 40km/h of maximum speed. Paint colours needed: TS-28 Olive Drab, X-10 Gun Metal, X-18 Semi Gloss Black, X-2 White, XF-1 Flat Black, XF-10 Flat Brown, XF-15 Flat Flesh, XF-56 Metallic Grey, and XF-64 Red Brown.
