IS 5
Heavy tank

IS-5 (Object 248) was one of two prototypes tested in 1944, the other was IS-4. In IS-5 the loader was placed to the left of the cannon, and the gunner -to the right, and this required re-arranging the whole fighting compartment. The tests of the tanks proceeded into the autumn 1944. But in November 1944 the test were stopped and the project was closed.
