Hello,

Now, the [g-translated, source is here] breaking news on changes in Soviet heavy line:

Spoiler                     

In short,
  • tier10 IS-4 stock gun is ... BL-9 D-25T from IS-2, top gun is 122mm M-62T, same as for IS-8, a tier9 heavy in the other branch. And yes, no S-70. Well done, son, me gusta.
  • KV-2 moved to tier6, as it should have been done long ago.
  • KV-1 gets a new 57mm gun
  • ETA still end of April.
UPD this is how the tree will look like:
Spoiler                     

UPD2 on M62-T2 from veider:
Spoiler                     

UPD3 again on M62-T2 in tier10 IS-4's turret, and now we know that will also fit into ST-I, yay!
Spoiler                     

Cheers!

Thanks for the info mate!
Does someone really expect it to come at the end of April? (no test servers yet as far as I know?)
I'm 50k exp away from IS-4, trying to get it w/o converting :) Will do it in time, my IS-3 is starting to perform better (or is it me :D)

WG 'end of month(t) usually implies 'mid of month(t+1), and thank god if it is the same year', but these changes have been in development for ages, so it might be different this time.

If the tank is "IS-4" has been established gun C-70, then the player gets a new IP-4 with a tool set 122 mm, "M62-T2", otherwise it remains an instrument of "D25-T";

You mean D25-T which is de Top IS-2 gun? not even the BL9, better have your IS4 Elite before the switch.

Very true but it also says

If the tank is installed IP-4 100 mm gun, "D-10T", it is replaced by the 122 mm weapon "BL-9";

So if think that means, if its dead stock you get the D25-T if you have unlocked the D-10T you get the BL-9, and if you have the BL-9 no mention so assume it stays the same, any which way unlocking the top gun is a priority for all new IS4 owners  such as myself

^this. The point is, IS-4 IRL had D-25T, so it should be available as well. How can anyone get to IS-4 w/o unlocking BL-9 I just refuse to understand or, likewise, live with such ppl on the same planet.

I completely agree, even at Tier 9 the BL-9 feels a tad anemic, how it would be with 50mm less pen god knows.
only 75k to grind for the gun and turret  :Smile-izmena:

Am I missing something:
That doesn't make alot of sense. The IS4 stock gun currently IS the top gun from the IS. Why would it keep that when its moved to a tier X?

No S-70 - that's rather disappointing...I hope that's not true.

^D-25T must be on IS-4, since it was there IRL. BL-9 for semi-top, and M-62T (~M58 from T110) for top. No S-70 - 100% sure about that. It's simply too big to fit in the turret, and impossible to load with only 1 loader, so the answer is obvious (and was recently confirmed by Storm).

- for historical reasons, d25t is IS4 historic gun.

I was looking through the kv changes, however I see no mention of a 85mm gun, just a 57mm.

Was this KV change not supposed to happen a year or so ago? It's the only reason I have it. (I took a long break from the game)

Or am I missing the point? http://forum.worldof..._teethhappy.gif

Yep, nothing about that so far. But I'd guess smth similar to S-53 from T-34/85 or F-30 from T-28.

I hope the 122mm M62 T2 is a decent gun. Odd that its also on the IS-8 though, as that will be the only vehicle on that tree with that gun.
