Any chance of selling it on the store instead of only giving us the chance in loot boxes? I have all the other tanks in the loot boxes and this would be the only reason for me buying them......

 

On a side note, it's nice to see this thing getting the autoreloader as it truly should've had from the start

When will IS5 be updated with the same mechanism?, they both share the same gun.

If you own the IS3A you should be able to trade it in for free to get this.

So, which of these two will be your favourite? The good ol' reliable IS-3 with its perfect blend of survivability, mobility, and firepower, or the all-new IS-3A with its burst potential? If you like both of them, make sure to keep some space for these two in your garage!

 

Roll out!

 

 The Defender will be the favorite for SH and it allready has made them unplayable!  :teethhappy:

If you already have IS-3A then you have this.

I like how you faked the dpm in the stats to make it look like less op....

it have higher dpm than regular is3 on single shoot.

A little bit more hp just in case, oh, and let's fix that annoying big gun aim time, so he can pen all the shoots of the first clip and after become a better heavy than the opponent.

IS-3A cannot mount a gun rammer where as the IS-3 can, meaning that the IS-3 will still have better DPM when single shooting

If you fire all 3 shells, you will be out of action for a significant amount of time..

How DPM presentation should be:

 

IS3A appears fully loaded in front of you. For 6s he has a DPM of 7800, afterwards he ha a sustained DPM of 2407 and a reload of 9.72s. (Perks and food)

 

This looks dramatically OP

It is an inverse loader. There is no significant amount of time. Empty it loads fastest. And on Tanks.gg it can fit a rammer, so i don't know. There are 3 other autoloaders in game who can fit a rammer. Like T7 jap medium.

It's about time something was done about the 3A.

 

I've always felt sorry for the poor sods who wasted their money and this pos.  Now it might actually get taken out occasionally.

Did you read the article?

 

Note that, unlike the Italian autoreloaders, the new IS-3A cannot mount a Tank Gun Rammer to lower its reloading time.

 

I don't think you also understand how DPM works - Damage Per Minute - This means that for the IS-3A, if you want to do that incredible burst damage, you have to give up over 44 seconds to reload the extra 2 shells, essentially removing the tank from battle

No tank can do 7800 DPM

The IS-3 will still have the better DPM if equipped with perks and food, and if the IS-3A driver has perks and food - The IS-3A just has the ability to dump 2 extra shells if needed

FInally we are getting some good russian heavy tanks in the game.

The prayers of the players have been answered !!!

 

Thank you WG for giving a good boost to the overlooked russian tech tree !

 

PS: It can do close to 3100 dpm if it loads full clip, unloads it, and keeps firing.

Thank you for clarifying that. By "make sure you have them BOTH in your garage" I thought it meant the old IS3A and this, not the IS3 and the IS3A. 

 

Cheers gents.

"Just has the ability to dump 2 extra shells if needed" *edited*   i mean you certainly are, 2 extra shells meaning like 780 HP in burst?! u know that u're not constantly fighting during a battle, u can easily get some breaks of 30 seconds between fights/trades to get that 1170 burst potential which is [edited]OP,

i bet in your opinion, defender isn't op as it has a crapgun, right? :)))) or the 268 4 isn't op as it doesn't have great DPM.... 

 

it's not about being TOXIC,           BUT          ANYONE who thinks this version of IS-3A isn't *edited*

Okay, my tanks.gg allowed me to put a rammer in. But even without, the sustained DPM is far from the documented 1327! I know how DPM works, but Wargaming seems to not being able to do so.

 

The italiens have a drawback for not holding back your fire. In the worst case you end up in a 1vs.1 with the long reload time of the last shot. But here you have a bit less DPM then an IS3 but with the addition of 2 shots more fired already. in the worst case scenario your DPM difference is: 2127 DPM IS3A to 2222 DPM of the IS3.

is-3a and defenders? 

Tech tree tanks powercreeped to oblivion!
