    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.

    Prior to the battle for Berlin the ISU-152 had proven extremely successful in the capturing of Budapest and Konigsberg. One use for the ISU-152 was to support other armored vehicles and had the ability to destroy German Tigers and Panthers. The ISU-152 had no turret and was slow to turn the entire vehicle and slow to reload but if it got the first shot there was never a need for a second. The ISU-152 occasionally was used as self-propelled artillery but its starring role in Berlin was destroying buildings and reinforced defenses.
