Front Lower Hull Armor Thickness on IS-2

Recommended Posts

Quite a few folks have e-mailed me over a several month period regarding the subject armor thickness, which is 127mm in British documents but alot less in many Russian sources.

We had Vasiliy Fofanov search out current Russian figures for Model 1944 IS-2 lower front hull armor (30 degrees from vertical), and he found 90mm rolled homogeneous or 100mm cast homogeneous.

The Russian Battlefield shows several drawings with 100mm at 30 degrees from vertical cast armor for IS-2 Model 1944.

The thickness of the 60 degree glacis armor could also stand another close look.

This subject is important and may be worth some additional study before we close the door on future CMBB patches.
