Tanksgg doesn't show BIA crew effect unless you put it there. IS-2M trades mobility for a little bit of gun handling and bit better armor.

Dude, Tiger 2 is not part of the game. Tiger 2 is a part of our dreams, the tank we use to imagine ourselves commanding and ordering the gunner to blow the soviet hoarde away. And wg is not the company to fulfill our dreams. *edited*

Comparing the IS, IS2 and IS2M I just don't see much difference.

Thing is I never considered the IS resilient the KV line is the one that sacrifices mobility for armour the IS line is the mobility over armour.

Its only later tiers that the IS line gets some seriously good protection.

 

The T45-85M has much better hull armour than the standard T23-85 I would have expected the ISM to have a similar upgrade over the IS

Maybe making a new premium that's different to the current ones, clones only work if they have another selling point like Rudy or Tiger131

Still enjoy playing my IS and IS2 so its still a good tank if you don't already have one of its brothers.

WG will help you with your dreams only if they include commanding glorius motherland tanks which all know can hardly be destroyed

It clearly isn't modernized. All modern premiums are flat out better than the tech tree counterpart.

 

The IS-2M isn't.

 

Perhaps WG should give it an autoloader or 10 degrees of gun depression in order to make it more viable.

I've not seen a single one since the last time they sold it. As it died out a few days after it's first appearance. Not a single one. I suspect there is a reason for that. And I also suspect most got the other Russian HT crew trainer you sold a few days ago to care about this.
