D-25T gun is there only to reduce "tank stats" on start
for soviet tanks drivers: so they reduce player whines on forum
for other: so they can point on "how bad stats it has" and buff it over the roof in next patch

It now has the worst front hull armor of all tier 10 tanks, not a brawler anymore but weak sniper. 440 damage with no autoloader.  4% more penetration value isn't a buff when gun itself deals 10% less damage. It also makes even lesser money since every shell deals less damage. Terrible for peek-a-boo fights which the game is all about.

And they think they reimburse me by giving wet tissue paper IS-8, good thing I had a KT to continue on to E-75.

Yeah, worst frontal armour with the best sloping/angling and no weakspots.  How about a nice hot cup of l2p?

I don't like the new is-4 (and i played 1000+ games with 54% winrate when it was tier 9). I rarely did any sniping with this tank cause i like to be at the front but the damage it does now is just a joke compared to the s70. And no, i don't care if i it has better acc now. And it reloads maybe 1.2 seconds faster... WOW (compared to the s70 on my is7)

Maybe i change my mind after 100 more games...

Edit: 3 Tanks with the new gun? and only my is7 left with s70? dafuq! I don't like this at all.

I even were able to do reasonable damage with the tier 8 gun. Many tier 9 tanks have rather bad side armor, or just use HE

The new gun is really unreliable at penetrating. The shots bounce a lot!

My first battle with new T10 IS-4 and I am impressed with the new gun. I hit 12 out of 16 at long distance, only one has bounced. But the credit receive is very poor ... 36K for 4229 damage and win?

New IS-4 is decent, feels like the old one pretty much, keep forgetting it's a tierX.

Also, too many noobs (sry hate that word) driving them today, same goes for IS-8 a bit, wrecking the match for their teammates. 1 or 2 noobs a team is ok, but not 5 or 6 when they're in the biggest tanks. Randoms really earning their name today.

I'm complaining about its weakness. Braindead or just pretending to be?

By the why the thingy on the rear right of the new model(probably fuel tank) looks like some piece of wood ...

Aim at lower plate....sigh. Shoot only at the drivers hatch at close ranges if you have 200+ penetration gun, otherwise just shoot at the front hull, especially lower part and lower plate. IS-4 is easy to kill if you are against less skilled player, do not exchange shots with it from long distances, get in closer(not facehugging), then aim your shots and the damage will roll. After some time you will figure out where to shoot and where not to shoot the IS-4.

PS. Use the also (in the settings you can change it) a crosshair that shows your chances to penetrate roughly (green = penetrable , orange = in between red and green, red = not penetrable) or get a modded crosshair & reticle.
