Bob,Here is a couple more items for the Secret Weapons of WWII:JS-4: 1944 design, in competition against the IS-3. Longer hull and thicker armour than IS-2. About 250 were built, after the war. JS-7: 1946 prototype, only three built. All new design, weight 68 metric tons, with 130 mm naval cannon (7020 mm long barrel) with autoloader and stabilizer, infrared night scopes, 8 machineguns, armour from 220 to 300 mm thickness and 60 km/h roadspeed. Crew of five. BTR-40 (1947) - The original prototype with a faceted rear hull had two variants. The first was armed with twin ZPTU-2 14.5 mm KPV heavy machine guns placed in a rotary platform with armour protection at the front and sides. The second version had no permanent armament but later became the BTR-40.Harlan
