SU-152* not 182. In the ISU 152 article in the first paragraph. Either than that, interesting articles.

ISU-152 was such a successful tank in the history, and yet, in the game, in some games it has become almost impossible to play it.

It lacks armor unlike what they said in the article, it doesn't do well for long distances, and even though the armor isn't that good, it is still with mild camo rating.
And I only ask, WHY?

Was looking for any link to 'Guard Lieutenant S. A. Stychinsky' and his actions against that entire German tank group in July 1944.....but can find absolutely nothing about it online.

Anyone find out more about this engagement?

Good read, and people, don't forget that the ISU-152 would be matched vs panthers and tigers at worst IRL. No wonder its armour doesn't hold in game.

 

ISU-130 sale when :P

I heard that whenever Tiger I got hit from the front either by the Soviet 122, or the 152, the entire frontal hull plate would fall off.

In game history of ISU 152 is the following:

- great tank at the beginning of time

- people started to hate it

- was nerfed

- now everybody hates it 

- end :)

Read about BL10 and you will understand why it was removed.

Already got a hard cover book on the SU's and so on i bought from the Wargaming store. Looks like it cant be bought anymore? Why is that. You guys should do more books on the history of the vehicles in the game. I'm sure people would snatch up books on Tigers, Panthers, etc
