Buy then you can mount the top gun without the top turret, the top configuration don't need to research track and have better DPM than IS-3.

Try to elite the tank first.

Did you complain about the IS at tier 7 with the same gun? You expected the stock grind to be better here? At least the side and rear armor on the stock turret is 10mm stronger vs on the IS. So there is that. Then again it has 217 prem pen. And now you know how most IS-6 owners feel.

Try playing the T-54 on tier 9 with 175 pen first. The top guns there were 59K each. As most did when it was linked via the Obj 416. As I did. I suspect this will be a breeze vs it.

44k in KV-4, plus the track. Just stop it there, it's not the worst grind you will have.

Hey, it may have terrible penetration, but at least it has terrible maneuveribility too so that you cannot get to better angles!


 

It sidescrapes like a fiend, though, if you can actually hurt your target.

I preferred the IS with the top gun, difference is that can't face tier 10

Yes, KV-3 is the worst tank on the line, but one of the easyest to grind. The record is ST-I stock grind. That's pesky! ;)

It's pretty dumb as a tank. Its stupidly powerful when top tier - its essentially a Russian Chrysler GF with way better side armor, 390 alpha, more DPM and smaller size for bit worse mobility. 212 pen, terrible accuracy, super bad view range and poor traverse speed makes it just all around awful VS higher tiers.

 

The problem is that it sees mostly higher tier opponents...

 

Im not enjoying very much at all. Very frustrating to play. Will write a full review of it when I research the Object 705.

​But after that you get a better gun. IS-6 is stuck with his for foreeveeeer.

IS-6 has pref mm, and is prem tank so can afford to fire prem rounds. I made my APCR my main ammo, and lost 60k credits for 2k dmg :P

Don't make it easier vs a tier 8 VK 100.01 does it? Or even the a Type 4 on tier 9 with 217 gold pen. As your stock grind would not have been, even as top tier at times.

 

Then again, much of the super heavies that are now. Inc the buffed Maus was not around when I did the stock T-54 grind. Or when the IS-6 was considered "good".

175 mm pen but, still it's 122, it can over-match most tier 8 heavy's turret roof, like the King Tiger or the Is3.
