The ISU-152 was a Soviet Self-Propelled gun produced in 1943 and nicknamed "Zverboy (The Beast)". It had no turret making it necessary to maneuver the entire tank. One of the best uses for it was as a Tank Destroyer waiting to ambush German vehicles. The ISU-152 was also used in fire support as long as it was accompanied by heavily armored vehicles. The BL-10 main gun wasn't always accurate and slow to aim but it did cause terrific damage if its shell hit the target.
In the East Prussian city of Konigsberg the German forces had devised a formidable stronghold. Beginning on January 9, 1945 until April 6, 1945 the German forces held out even though they had been surrounded and cut off from any help from out side the city. For 10 long weeks Soviet aircraft roamed the skies unopposed and Soviet tanks and troops slowly fought their way into the city. ISU-152 #65 with the inscription "Liberated Kirovskiy" was one of the Assault Guns used to destroy enemy fortifications and armor.
