The IS 2 Stalin Tank...how to kill it?
« on: 17-06-2017, 01:06:30 »
G'day gang:

While I have taken my leave of FH2 for the time being, the ONE thing that stuck with me was during Dukla Pass (or was it Arad?)...anyway, I had a hell of a problem with the IS 2 Stalin tank. I would hit it head on and even from the flank with a Panther's main gun & the shot would just ricochet off....so like the Matilda is a problem--how do I kill the Stalin? Do I need to creep around & hit it from the rear or the flank? DO I suicidally run up to it with a satchel charge? Or do I try to lure it in front of a 'handy' 88 flak gun?

All of the above ;)

Trying to kill it frontally is the worst idea in any case. Btw: the IS2 is on Seelow.

Panzerfaust turns the IS-2 too into a heap of scrap.
