Two brutal armoured platoons come from this starter set, both with the potential to break entire armies. Forming the main battle line would be the IS-2s, with tough armour, a gargantuan 122mm gun and 3 machine guns, you can send this platoon to clear the path for the follow-up task force. Which would be the T-34 Squadron, who have plenty of armour and firepower to sweep away whatever remains.
The T-34/85 became to be known as the 'ultimate' version of the T-34 series, combining the revolutionary design alongside an 85mm gun turret, this tank became the apex of battle tanks.
