IS-4 tank??
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Looks about right - here's the Kubinka one. There was also one reported at Zabaykal'sk.

There is a ''Memorial of military and Labor glory'' at N52 03.004 E113 28.416 with a T-34 and other hardware. No pic of a IS-4..

Here:

IS-4 – Zabaykalsk, Zabaykalsky Krai (Russia)
www.reibert.info/forum...07&page=12

with the IS-4:
Exhibition in park ODORA SibVo, Chita, Chita Oblast (Russia)
Kubinka tank Museum (Russia)

That makes 3 surviving IS-4 heavy tanks a small numer compeare to IS-2 and IS-3 Sad

If you work on the theory that nearly 4,000 JS2 &2,500 JS3 with a mere 250 JS4 being built, with no active service anywhere for the JS4, it's not unsurprising that there are few preserved.
Impressive looking beast.

These are not the last IS-4.
They were used to make a pillboxes at the USSR-China border, and some tanks can still stay there.

anyway, these are the known survivors, and only known by us. One can never suspect what is preserved, hidden or simply mis-identified, and we could find more IS-4 tanks all around Russia and Eastern Europe.

Great site there, pity there's so many "red crosses" where photo links are now broken.
