So, having stumbled over this topic so many a time lately, I offer ye, fellow tankers, an experiment.

Imagine that there is some really benevolent person in the tanks world, and he is finally hired by WG. And in the next patch you see, that against expectaions the wonderful tier10 gun from T-10 does not disappear in the IS-7 technology cluster, and now you can choose which exactly gun you mount on your IS-7. Moreover, just to give a 3d option, I thought that a sister-gun of the original S70 (but a much better one, in my opinion) would have also been a better option, than the only option given to us bt WG atm. So, tell me please - which would have been thy weapon of choice?

 

upd poll updated due to massdislike of the s30a

How am I supposed to choose when I have no clue about their stats? Just Googling doesn't make sense.

First one is the cannon of IS7

Second one is the cannon of T-10, IS4 and ST1
Third one is the cannon of Obj.263
I had really thought that the ones who have a preference in this regard, do already know these guns)

S70A is just the IS-7 gun with tweaked stats to make it more appropriate for a tier X TD, it's not a different gun.

 

And if you give the IS-7 a TD gun stats then what do you give the TD to compensate for lack of a turret?  You are just manufacturing powercreep.

 

And I don't want that pea shooter they gave the IS-4 either.  I want it's S70 back (and putting back at tier 9 where it belongs).

I'm honoured. Then please do pick a likewise proper name for the bloke who is dropping (already not such a great) pen on a step to the last tier w/o alternatives?

It's bad enough they put the T-10's gun on the IS-4, putting it on the IS-7 too would be stupid.  At that point you may as well give both tanks completely made up guns.

Thanks for posting, I never look at the gun types, so I never recognize any =p

why would you put the 263 gun on it? way too OP.

T-10 gun is way better then the current. I'd rather have a gun that hits, then 50 more alpha on a missing shot.

IS-7 gun is ok for the platform. Both M62T2 and S70A would make the tank OP. It already has noobproof armour, medium tank agility and no weackspot on the turret. After all the buff it had, there still people complaining about it? :amazed:

:facepalm:

You want to put a tier 10 TD gun on one of the best tier 10 heavies, yeh that is balanced.

 

IS7 needs no changing, it's borderline OP after the recent buffs and it's current gun is the historical and only gun it ever had.

 

If you want use a 122m on tier 10 that is like the T-10 get yourself the IS4 or 113 or 121.

I would love if IS-7 had a choice of two guns: The current 130mm and the 122mm on T-10. Why not.

 

The gun stats are made up anyway, it's not like DPM and alpha of any guns in WoT is historical.

IS7 OP looooooooooool

 

besides that, your last sentence makes no sense, as there are several tanks on tier 9 that share the same guns as tier 10's on that line.

1. You mean a tank that's fast, has one of the best if not the best frontal armor in the game and has a gun that has great soft stats is bad or average?

 

2. Yeah they do but that's not what he meant.
