Finally!!!!!! Than you WG, I've waited this almost three years! ❤ Last week I wrote they don't read these threads anyway, but I guess I was wrong. Or just Lucky. Anyway, #walletopened already in the morning!

When will the IS-2 be available? On the NA server players can buy it since 10.05.

Oh look, it's pretty much the tank we had for free in the game which was then made a premium :great:

 

Comparing it to it's peers I'd say all-in-all it's a thoroughly underwhelming vehicle.

 

Block Quote

Naturally, as with real Panzers, you will be in for surprisingly good aiming times and dispersion values, complemented with a good viewing range to take the enemy apart at any distance.

 

As you can see from the comparison, there is nothing " suprisingly good" about the airtime or dispersion values, as a matter of fact they are not *THAT* much better than the competition. Especially when you keep in mind that the tank is rather slow and thus the aiming circle will stay smaller then the competition to begin with.

Same with the view range, compared to it's peers it has normal view range.

 

Just for sh@ts and giggles, comparing it to a tank that actually has good airtime/dispersion and view range a whole tier lower.....

@Cobra6

Ouch,the comparison, is nasty. Anything paired against T-34-85M is like a toy. 

And I wanted to get that shmaltrum :(  I guess I'll be getting just a month of prem time to stack it with frontlines.

Cobra 6

 

I agree with this. Was a fan of the "original" OP tier 5 Pz4 which was nerfed to death in 2013 and transformed into the tier 6 Schmalturm as a premium. Even though it was a horrible move by WG, I bought it immediately back then and while the gun handling was at the time very similar (but slightly worse than the original) the tank lost all its mobility. Still was my most played tank and credit grinder back then.

Fast forward to 2018 and the tank is just a ghost of its former self - a very slow one. Yeah it can do well in good matchups and the turret armor is good for trolling people who haven't seen one before but RNG makes the gun handling a joke. A complete joke...

I've got it with a good crew and a 0.28 dispersion but can hardly hit anything reliably at long range. All while the T34-85M snipes like a boss because ... reasons.

I still treasure this tank dearly for what it used to be, but I hardly play it anymore ... a true collector's gem :)

Ah don't worry that was on the NA server, possibly still is, as was the Chrysler K, this was on the Asian server, so i just have a feeling these will come our way very soon.

 

 

 

As for this I think I saw a Jingles vid about it, it don't look like anything to get excited about, as the side skirts don't even act as armour.

Well Cobra 6, tell me where can I buy pz V/IV? This is the only tier 6 German med premium, and the gunhandling is best in its tier. Sure it is not the best tank in tier 6 cos of the op tanks like t-34-85m.

 

And it did receive impressive gunhandling buff about year go.

You can't buy it, I was using it to illustrate a point that the gun handling argument is weird since it doesn't have good gun handling compared to a tank a tier lower of the same nation.

yes, octane was needed since the engine is so weak, at one point I even had additional grousers; I recently traded it for the M56 scorpion... Just like Lorraine 40t, pz IV "narrow turm" was good when it was tier V, 6 years ago. Not worth it and if you want to just have it in the garage you can always look at it via comparison tool.

Well I was comparing it to tier 6. It is weird to compare it to the lower tier vehicle with less alfa, and which isn't even available.
