Seriously, I looked up the IS-7 in Wikipedia and this article came up

A heavy machine gun variant of the Slostin also existed, chambered in the 14.5 x 114 mm calibre. This variant had somewhat different action and was intended as an Anti Aircraft armament of the IS-7 heavy tank, but rejected on the grounds of complexity as well as they felt it had no advantages over the DShK and KPV which could perform this role well. Only a handful of prototypes were built.

I'm not suggesting that it should be shootable but it would look really cool while being historically accurate.

Well since there's no infantry in the game maybe there isn't any use of this gun, but if you mean this to be like the flak gun which shoots a barrage at the target seems a bit unfair to me.  ;)

I'm not suggesting that the gun should be shootable, none of the machineguns currently are, I just want them to change the model so it looks cooler.

The DshK machine gun of the IS-7 is capable of turning many of the paper-thin vehicles into swiss cheese.

"The Slostin gun was tested and worked well but not adopted by the Soviet Government as they found it was overcomplicated and had no advantage over the existing PM 1910's, SG-43 Goryunov and RP-46 machine guns."

If you really trust wikipedia, then you will find that this is historically accurate.
