have improved almost all the tanks even those who were good, bringing new lines are not bad but some of the old tanks just forgot them and this is one of them nothing is done for its improvement neither the movement nor the cannon nor the armor, players are playing with him. You are asking why too slow to reach a goal before they are ahead of him when he turns a light and middle tank that can not turn, and the cannon in some case has become inaccurate and does not break through because they made the other tanks stronger than the other s almost everyone already drilled navsyakade..mislya it's time to think about whether it will improve or replace it with another that has a chance among the other

this tank needs buff immedately, its so much underpowered these days. i would improve: ammo capacity (30 rounds is just terrible), aim time and accuracy, mobilty and gun depression.

Definitely needs a buff, if not in the gun maybe the mobility of the tank or its gun depression. Backward side scraping works really well though which is nice

Hopefully we'll get object is4, new meta.

 

I'd prefer - 15 gun depression, v shaped hull, 705a turret and obj140 dpm. Heat 360pen and hesh as prem munitions and apcr 290 pen Standart. 

 

Downside could be something like cupolar with 320mm armor. 

 

 

 

If ever nerfed after a year like 2684.

No, if and when the dubbel barreled tanks come into the game, WG have already stated that they will form a mini branch of their own (I would assume starting from either the KV3 or KV4).

I remember way back when IS4 was at tier 9, playing it on Ensk one day and a frontal arty hit killed all the crew. There was still 75%+ HP left on the tank.

 

That's the only time that ever happened to me lol.

Just check this 440 damage heavy tank comparison and you will see how bad the IS-4 is right now. It's not even funny anymore.

Wot has apparently itself admitted this needs a proper buff ..

but keeps delaying, who knows why..

Maybe if we keep reminding them...

Has this been tott recently , or chance it could be soonish?
