Prove me wrong. If I do not use gold with him, I suddenly cannot hit or pen anything, the gun starts trolling... etc.

Even gold is trash. 303mm apcr is joke. Although I guess if it had 340mm heat it would just beat the other t10 heavies

Train Snap Shot and Smooth Ride on the crew.

 

Equip food instead of a fire extinguisher.

 

Equip the fire extinguisher Directive.

I remember it having a trollish gun but last time i played it was either 2014 or 16. Guess it received buffs since then?

That is not me being incapable of shooting but the gun being much worse in terms of handling than, for example, WZ-111 5A.

Already all of these, except for the directive, because I never use that one. At least, since they don't drop in FL anymore.

It had buffs, yes, but I don't think those were for the gun. Wouldn't like to lie here, but I am not sure.

Then fit a VertStab, preferably the bond version, and use the corresponding directive to boost it further.

 

Or do the same with the vents.

 

I dunno, I'm just trying to help.

Why would you anyone even play IS-7 without gold for anyway?

250mm is what most Heavy Tanks already have as effective (sometimes nominal) armour and this vehicle faces plenty of them.

I doubt anyone with at least a basic understanding of the game runs it with anything but vstabs/ rammer/vents(optics may work to).

So recommending to fit vstabs is like telling someone to chew before swallowing.

Tbh, I used GLD instead of optics. I also tend to think there's little use for a rammer on the IS-7, as its' DPM is already quite terrible.

is-7 is fine, its not like 277 or 430u doesnt have troll moments as well, none off them are supposed to be snipers, have you tried 705a? i did and i sold it because its gun is just beyond unreliable.

The tank guns with longest reloads benefit the most from rammers.

You do realise that we can see your tier X stats, don't you?


And the OP's?

Except IS-7 has better gun handling than 5A

0.16/0.16/0.06 for IS-7 Vs 0.18/0.18/0.08 for 5A

Respectfully disagree. If the tank already has great DPM, as in the case of WZ-111 5A, then I will try to add more to it. Otherwise, I will try to improvise something. There's hardly reason to reload faster, if you cannot aim fast enough or if you can't hit anything, at least, that is how I take it.

0.16/0.16/0.06 for IS-7 Vs 0.18/0.18/0.08 for 5A

Marginal difference. Either way, I have 1% higher hit ratio with IS-7 than with WZ.

I need not evidence that anyone who even claims nonsense like this, is always wrong.
