Text in original Preserved Tanks In Poland publication:

The label for this IS-2 reads: “The IS-2 tanks composed the combat equipment of the 4th and 5th Heavy Tank Regiments assigned respectively to the 1st and 2nd Polish Armies of General Berling’s Force. The regiments and their tanks saw battle only in the waning months of WWII. The Polish forces under Russian control received 71 IS-2 heavy tanks in the period of October 1944 – April 1945. After the war’s end the tanks remained in service through the end of 1950s. The tank in display was used during WWII by the 4th Heavy Tank Regiment of the 1st Polish Army.”
