Tested a few of these out on the servers and kind of interested, there's not a lot about

Been an is6 weirdo stalker for a week or so...

 

The Turret is superb

Tried to pen it with a scorpion 275 Heat a few times with 100% failures and have had bounces from various acpr

Pen it on the body plumb lines only or on the lower crossline region, square on hits only

 

Gimme a discount coupon wot, I'm interested

You bounce shots coming your way. But your shots will bounce as much tbh. 186 AP pen is not much to write home about .

you better get 112. It has better armor and better premium shells.

Got the 112

There's something about the IS6

More skill needed, and potentially very rewarding

 

Just feel its a bit overpriced

 

...just need a wee 20% nudge...

 

come on wot, its only a digital thingy mabob

Defender was even cheaper when sold here last. So yeah, it def is. But I got mine for free "first tier 8 marathon they had", and I still can't recommend it. 112 has 250 HEAT pen. IS-6 has 217 gold pen, that can go as low as 162 iirc on a low low roll. And when you have Defenders and VK 100.01's around with their effective armor on the lower plate. Then you wish you had that 250 HEAT.

IS-6 is kind of outdated like the T34 unfortunately.

The IS-6 does boast excellent armour, but just like the KV-5, its gun is lacking in penetration (though it's much better, thanks to the larger caliber and better special shells). The new match maker might make it pretty relevant again, however, if my games in tier 8 preferential match making tanks today were any indication...

If you play Frontlines for a while, finish 6 times, you can get a WZ-111 which is a more mobile IS-6, with better gold shell, better gun handling.

Also, it's got pref MM, like the IS-6.

Not the same type of gameplay.

IS6 has better gun handling of the two, but WZ is faster and has worse armor.
