Hey, so I was looking through the Chinese HT line in the tech tree as that's the line I plan to grind next after I finish the T-57H line and something struck me.  The IS-2 has two turrets, and their armour thickness and profiles are identical, it's the same turret bar the fact it has a cool looking machine gun on top for the commander to use when out the tank and the hand grips are in a slightly different place.

 

Am I missing something here? The armour is the same, the traverse is the same, the view range is the same the weight is the same.  At first I thought it must be required to mount one of the guns, but no it's not a prerequisite for anything bar eliting the tank.  Is this really just a 12,500XP aesthetic upgrade?

It also comes with a whooping 50 extra health.

The stock IS-2 turret, is basically the top Russian IS one. You have the same HP etc stock, as the elited IS. So upgrading will only boost your HP. As the reload etc is the same with the stock as with the elite turret.

 

Is it worth it? If you plan to keep it. You won't get accelerated crew XP if you don't. If you just gonna go for the 110. Then no.. not really.

Can't remember, but it might also make the gun handle better.

It's necessary to research & buy if you want the 50 extra hitpoints and if you want to elite the tank (and gain access to accelerated crew training)

Going by tanks.gg with the upgraded turret the gun depression when pointing backwards is actually a little bit worse.

 

Perhaps turret ring and/or observation devices modules have more hp at least? Tanks.gg wouldn't tell.
