This tank epitomizes the basic approach of the Red Army: overwhelming firepower. They are stronger than the allied tanks but more expensive to produce, and slower. Soviet commanders can even the odds by constructing more than one War Factory in order to produce Heavy tanks faster, thus allowing them to overwhelm allied tanks (this of course requires a lot of resources).
The basic tank of the Soviet, this tank is equipped with twin 105mm cannons, giving it twice the punch of the nearest Allied equivalent, the Medium tank. It sacrifices speed for this bonus, but the net result still makes it a formidable opponent on the battlefield.
In one of the expansion missions a malfunctioning Chronosphere altered the weapons of units, causing its guns to discharge lightning instead.
While it is a double-barreled tank, some cutscenes show it as having only a single barrel. It's likely that the single-barreled versions were earlier models, or that they were developed as lower-cost variants of the double-barreled Heavy Tank.
