In game its front armor is the same as the later designs like the T-55, M48 and Centurion with a higher side armor. What really hurts this brute is the Hen and Chicks rule along with its rate of fire one weapon. The lack of stabilizers really kills its ability to fight any kind of mobile battle, but neither could its historical version.
But I have found that a heavy Egyptian force is very difficult for any Israeli force to tackle.
|1||T-54 or T-55 with Stabiliser and Searchlight||65|
|5||T-54 or T-55 with Stabiliser and Searchlight||335|
|10||T-54 or T-55 with Stabiliser and Searchlight||545|
|3||Sporadic Air Support MiG-17||155|

Most Israeli forces just can't cope with that many high front armor, high AT tanks. In a mission with reserves I can place 22 front armor 12 tanks on the board.
But without further ado, here are the pictures.
|The big nastiest!|
|Historically the IS-3m's backed up infantry alongside T-34/85s.|
|But I couldn't help but add them into my T-55 lists.|
|These things look intimidating.|
|With the cat killer special rule, the SU-100s can be a terror.|
|Especially with dozens of other tanks charging straight at the enemy.|
|It then gets difficult for the Israeli player to pick which platoon to target.|
