This time around, The Chieftain checks out the Soviet IS-4, a rather interesting heavy tank.

I actually find it quite funny that people always -rep ContentWG even when the post and/or news is good.

Good video :) Just a small addition: the tank rider praxis in Soviet army had quite a tradition, to the point of having a special term for such troops: "Tankodesantniki" ("tank-desant troops").

Because Content_WG represents evil and lame gift shop deals. Even The_Chieftain, in all his glory, can't help Content_WG now.

Enjoyed the video. I'd love to see the inside.

Great work Chieftain...love these videos.  Its really cool for non-tankers like me to get to see so much about the real versions of these vehicles we drive & blow up in the game.

very impressed by the DSHK and how fast/easily it can get to ~90 degrees.

You always bring awesome content but was it just that there wasn't a while lot you could do to interact with this particular vehicle? You almost look... bored?

1. There's no link to this thread in the article, bad! bad!

2. Chieftan mentioned use of the gun travel lock for movements by rail - my question(s) is, would the gun travel lock be used when conducting road marches as well?  Say, if it was a long-distance road march in a 'safe' area.  Which brings me to the secondary question, did Soviet heavies of this era actually have the mechanical reliability and durability to do long-distance road movements?

3. Business trips... to Kubinka.  The mind boggles.
