i think that you should add the battle that the IS-3 Have fought aginst the japnese...and also add ammo types...such as...SAbot and He for tanks... cuz most of the ammo for the IS-3 was Sabot(i think..or AP shells)

The IS-3 was a thorn in the side of allied tank designers until the early sixties, to counter it the British developed the Conqueror to supplement the Centurion, while the Americans developed the M103, what chance would the Japanese, with Ha-Go's and Chi-Ha's, have against it?

here you go: the participation of IS-3's in Far Eastern Far Eastern Front battles (in August 1945) At least One tank Regiment of IS-3 tanks Was sent .and this was the load of ammo in IS-2,IS-3 Tanks: Like its Predecessor,the IS-2,the IS-3 Normaly Carried 28 shells eighteen HE Rounds and Ten AP Rounds the Ammuntion distribution suggests that infantry and other "soft" targets were intended as the targets of the IS-3

Actually it says one tank regiment of IS-3's was sent but combat usage is unverified.

"The participation of IS-3's in Far Eastern Front battles (in August 1945) is still unverified: at least one tank regiment of IS-3 tanks was sent, but Soviet combat records don't confirm any actual combat."
