Got mine the last time around, sold it the other day, don't miss it at all, mobility is nice but the gun is rubbish.

Looks in Premium Shop.

 

Shop says only available for 1 day.

 

So Wargaming, pray tell me how it can be a Gem of the Week for just 1 day.

 

Dont want it anyway.

i have this one, i cant penetrate tiers above without gold ammo. and it's strugling even with stock ammo. It penetrates... sometimes

 

But in the other hand it is excellent crew trainer and money maker.

Don't trust you anymore so still #walletclosed.

 

Come back in like six months, and then IF you've actually made changes I'll consider spending $$$ again.

 

3:5:7 template, "balanced" Bobject v4, superheavies without weakspots but with gold derp HE, stun/damage/rof on middle tier arty, "closed maps" due to corridors, .....guess all in all for you to do actual balancing making this good game great!?...instead of just trying to grab money or introduce new in-game shop :facepalm:

I really never was able to properly make this potato gun work for me, not on the Chinese IS-2 and not on the IS when I played it recently. There is something annoying about missing point blank range snapshots in the majority of cases while having none functional armor to take the return fire.

 

I won't ever be picking this one up, it's just not for me. I prefer reliable guns that can take snapshots.

You can wait for the upcoming IS-2M that, if unchanged, will have better gun handling and soft stats at the cost of marginally worse mobility.

These 100% Brother in Arms crews always confuse me. Is this one 0 skill BIAS like with the girls crew, or its like regular 1 st skill trained to 100% .

Yeah they confuse me too at times you have to get with wargamings descriptions.

100% trained crew means just that no extras thats what they call the crews primary skill

 

The Berlin crews like this one on the IS2 come as a 100% crew + BIA trained to 100% and its a zero skill so whatever you start training next  counts as your first skill.

 

The Female crews from the personal missions are a Berlin crew with enough additional xp to get your first skill to 100%.

So 100% + BIA as a zero skill and then whatever you pick is immediately at 100% and is your first skill
