The "IS-2 late" turret seems to have exactly the same stats as the "IS-2 early turret" and it's not needed to get to the 110.

 

So other than eliting the IS-2 and being able to activate ACT, what it the point ?

 

Does it have a smaller profile/copula ?

Are the details in tech tree screen wrong ?

You have 50 more HP, BUT less gun dep at the back as well. 3 at the back on upgraded, 4 on the back on the stock, so seems abit silly. Looks the same size and everything on tanks.gg model, only stat that changes is rear gun dep and HP

Isn't it good that not every russian tank gets an impenetrable bowl turret?

No, I'll continue to post anything I like.

 

The 5 year old post you linked is less than useless.

I read the link & it contains some false & confusing info, especially as back then the shape of the early & late IS-2 turret & gun mantlet was different (this is no longer the case, turret shapes are identical now)

 

So OP was correct in asking again. Old info can get outdated.

 

To answer OP, only that changes now is 50 extra Hp & 1 less degree gun depression when pointing the gun to the rear. Rest is identical to stock turret.

well, sites like Tanks.gg or others can answer that.

I was wrong, but i just took first google answer and gave you the link(i was even on my phone then), to show how easy it to find something.

We are getting lots of question you can already find answers, and there is no need to ask again if you can find them yourself(if you cant, then sure, post it)

You can also compare two Is-2 in World of tanks, i tested it and it says that there is slightly more hp, and slightly better concealment.
