The IS-7 was a prototype design tank which was started in 1946 by the Soviet Union. All in all 3 prototype were built and tested. In 1948 it had reached a weight of 68 tons while being armored with 220 to 300m thick plates. The armament consists of a 130mm cannon adapted from a naval gun with a 7.02m long barrel. Additionally 8 MGs were installed and Slostin MG as anti aircraft MG.
The IS-7 had very innovative design and featured new technologies like an automated loader, IR sight and cannon stabilizer. Anyhow this tank never went into series production.
