Happy Supertest, IS-2S screened!

 

Hey, tankers!

 

Do you hear that sound? It’s the IS-2S screened, a tier VII Soviet heavy, rolling (no, it’s literally paving its way) onto this year’s first Supertest!

 

Spoiler

 

As you can presume, the vehicle is akin to the IS-2 featuring a flat glacis plate, but with a major difference, namely screens providing extra protection against HEAT and HE rounds. Yet you have to pay for good things, and in case of the IS-2S screened, the trade-off is its slightly decreased dynamics.

 

When in battle, the IS-2S screened shows the classic approaches characteristic of a regular researchable IS. The increased protection allows for better resistance to enemy attacks, while the lowered dynamics will hardly affect the overall performance. Also, don’t forget the heavy’s gun with its noteworthy alpha while its unique appearance will undoubtfully make your IS-2S screened stand out in the battlefield.

Considering how well the IS-2M (the latest IS clone before this) sold...ehh, they could find way better ways to get money.

Wow, what a completely pointless premium. IS-2 Berlin at least has a BiA crew to sweeten the deal, this looks as though it could have been sold as a 3D skin for all the good the extra panels will do. Who loads HEAT for an IS-2?

What is wrong with premium tanks?

I mean, if they are balanced, like this one is, i don't see the problem.

It's better to make money on balanced premiums than on LeFH arta and other OP crap they used to make.

At least premiums are far more balanced than they used to be in 2016 and 2017. Why you moan?

 

I would love to see premium versions of many tanks. If people enjoy it - why not.

I would also like to have option to turn standard into premium for some ammount of gold... Would be way more interesting. :)

I think I just about got enough IS-2's in my garage, WG.

 

Seriously, can you guys think of something else for a change? Please?

The thing is, now that we have the IS-2S along with the T-34S, we also need the T-34-85S; that would be this completely-historical, awesome-looking thing:

This way we would have the complete collection of up-armored historical Soviet tanks.

Oh fricking hell yeah, another russian premium heavy tank!

 

Man I'm soo glad they bring this tank, this looks like the most special thing ever and I always wanted a new premium tank in the game.

Sad it is not a Tier VIII. But yeah, russian heavy, what a rarity!

 

I really really hope they will bring every single tank in the game as a premium variant with additional spaced armor, that is such a

creative idea!

 

I'm really sick and tired of playing tech tree tanks, nobody wants these, good that are barely coming any new innovative things in there!

Oh boy oh boy oh boy this game is getting better and better with every little update!

Hmm sorry to say but that thing looks ugly man.

I would be interested in an IS-2M or the Berlin Special IS with the white markings instead. Wonder if one of those returns to the ship/for gold

That thing looks like a joke, like someone just slapped on some solar panels, painted them green and called it a day. Also the screens fail to cover the weakest frontal part, the gun mantlet and turret front.
