    I, too, have been to this museum, where I spent much time admiring the JS3. Ballistically, it is a very fine design, although the curved lower mantlet must have worried crew sitting in the front compartment, of course. I read recently (possibly in this Forum) that it is unlikely that JS3's actually saw service in WW2, other than perhaps against the Japanese. Can anyone confirm/deny this ?
