I bought it last Christmas, along with some others.

And have only done 128 battles. Played a bit more recently with it.

Holy crap it's fun..!

Bounces loads, great gun, quite agile.  ..or is it me..!

Have I finally found a heavy I can play..!

When was the last time you played the tech tree IS?

I tell you something better, try the Chinese one. Almost the same but with 250 mm heat pen instead of 217 mm APCR.

 

The premium IS-2 and the tech tree IS is pretty much the same except for a little more hull armor.

The Chinese IS-2 is pretty fun, but I have never found out how to use it's armor and used it to just blast other tanks open when I had the opportunity :P

Because it doesn't have any, it's a big fat medium with 390 alpha. Its redeeming factor though is that it doesn't suck as much as the IS in a +2 battle. With 250 heat you can hurt tier 9s too. :)

The Chinese one fully upgraded loses a degree of gun depression, and 10 mm of frontal armour, for generally better mobility.

A word of warning on the Chinese IS2, frontal fires are an issue. Haven't played mine often and it is still stock which may be part of the problem but already had 2 games where I was set alight twice in the game in quick succession. Stock gun is decent enough but could do with DPM increase.

 

I've enjoyed playing all of the IS variants, particularly the Russian premium (rental!) one because in that case I had a decent crew in it and no stock grind so the results were instant,

I got the IS-2M from the advent calendar, pretty good tank but also kinda boring to play. Still a much better pic than IS-6.
