In 1956–1957, students of the Military Armored Forces Academy designed their diploma project: installing loading mechanisms on the IS-3 and T-10 heavy tanks. The IS-3 version featured a two-row loading mechanism and its crew was cut down to just three members: a commander, a gunner, and a driver. According to official reports, this tank was only a prototype. However, U.K. reconnaissance reported the production of several thousand of these tanks, preserved in a secret depot.
