I only play FL, so in the FL mode, IS-3A is okay, but nothing amazing or game-breaking (which is good). It hasn't been sold in ages though, so its cool if people will get a chance to buy it. FAR BETTER than that clown car sale!!!

Got this in the Christmas lootboxes two years ago, played a few matches and saw how broken it was compared to regular free Tier 8 heavies.

 

Haven't played it since, don't add to the ever growing list of issues this game has.

It is a really strong heavy, perhaps a bit too strong vs lower tiers, but it is not gamebreaking. I like it.
The gun is pure RNG(more so than usual), that is the balancing factor, sometimes you will hit 3 out of 3 on a long range target and sometimes the gun just says "Nyet!" and slams fully aimed close range shots into the ground, oh and it fires APCR as standard ammo, which means really good shell velocity for such a big shell(1400m/s) but also less normalization which can result in bulls*it bounces sometimes.
For example if a 53TP shoots a 218mm pen AP shell in the upper plate of a Tiger II that shell has to pen 205mm of armor, if the IS-3A shoots its 221mm pen APCR at the same spot it has to penetrate 215mm of armor due to the lower angle normalization the shell gets. This means that the 53TP has 62% pen chance and the IS-3A gets 55% despite having 3mm better pen nominally.

As Minister of Defense i have proposed buying this pinnacle of Soviet engineering to the Executive Committee of our Supreme Soviet. The Secretary General sadly said 'NJET' while ramming her shoe on the kitchen table….Since i don't want to be banned to the Gulag (again) i have to pass....

Contrary to popular belief, this tank is bad. I have it and I hate playing it. Extremely bad gun (handling, accuracy, penetration, aim time), bad mobility, bad frontal armor, bad gun depression, inverse auto-reloader is worse compared to normal auto-reloader, because if you want to keep your clip potential you have to wait 16s for reload. Also you only have 3 crew members (no loader).

lol, inverse autoreloader is worse compared to normal auto reloader... good one :D . This worse inverse autoreloader IS what makes is3 a OP:teethhappy:. Also, in what universe is 221 pen at tier 8 bad? Oh, and the mobility is not bad, i say is good for a heavy tank :) the only thing bad on is3 a is accuracy and the gun handling, but i use food, and also have purple vents and vstabs. and regarding the loader , you don't really need to train one, because the only useful skills on loader are bia safe stowage and repairs and maybe the forth one the fire fighting skill

Jolly font.

 

From your comments I expected a higher price. 44 € is almost a usual price.

Still I won't buy it and too think the 703 is a better beast for stat padders.
