Heyo :)

 

i probably should have done this thread ages ago when i was looking into buying these tanks as everyone told me a different opinion on which one is actually the best. but i did not.

but perhaps some one else can use this information, and i too get to know which one is actually the best and which one is not.

 

i think KV-122 is the Best as it has better mobility and gun handling than the others.

IS-2M would be on 2nd spot.

 

and KV-3 would be at the bottom imo.

KV-3 and IS-2 shielded are the worst. 

 

I remember attempting to grind the KV-3 many years ago. I rage sold it because it was so trash stock (I was a F2P orange noob back in the day so I couldn't free xp through it)

IS hands down the best. Mobility, useable armor, good dpm.
Sold it once i got my hands on a prem is2, lovely piece of machinery.
But then again, i have fond memories of the kv3.

If we talk about the gun, IS-2S is the best. Top DPM and top soft stats.

Then we have the tech tree IS, with same DPM but a bit worst soft stat.

Then IS-2 Berlin, IS-2M and KV-3, with soft stats another bit worst.

Finally the KV-122, which has lower DPM and soft stat equal to IS.

I've been enjoying the Chinese one, for all round use though I think the standard IS tech tree is the best if you discount being able to use crew and gain credits from the premiums.

IS is the best.

KV-3 is the worst.

Why?

I have not play the others so I don't know about them. :)

I like IS a lot because I can switch between 100mm & 122mm.

 

I remember KV-3 were painless grind. 107mm RoF surprised enemy many times when they tought to be lucky and only receive 300dmg and then charged when I was reloading.

It was not great or bad tank. It was solid HT then.

I sold it because it was a boring tank.

I'd say that IS-2 Ekranami is the best.

I'd also say that the KV-122 is the worst.

Based on personal experience with the IS, IS-2 (China), KV-3 and IS-2 Erkanami.

Spoiler

Played only KV-3, IS and IS-2 Shielded, and my experience is like the next:

  1. IS
  2. IS-2S
  3. KV-3

KV-3 gun was a big trolling joke that was missing more than usual. But IS was a beautiful piece of Stailniom. Even the snap shots were actually hitting! :D

Never played the Chinese IS but I'm interested to try it out.

I dont like the 122mm guns.They are too unreliable for my taste...propably because i cant make them work.I prefer the IS with the 100mm tbh.Though the IS-2 with HEAT does have its moments.

KV-122 is terrible. It trades it's armor for I have no clue what. You say better gun handling? That thing doesn't hit even a barn right in front of the tank.

The other IS tanks have some armor that works occasionally, especially to side-scrape. No matter how good I played when I had it as rental, I only lost in it (0% winrate with the 10 battles I played, with average damage of 1200 and max 2k damage)

I think IS is the best choice of those I played (IS, IS-2, IS-2S and KV-122)

(superior IS-2 in pretty much every way)

 

 

Worst:

Chinese IS-2

(too many drawbacks)

i much more prefer to getting to places fast and or faster than the opposite heavy.

and the IS/-2's armour is not that much better at stopping your 122mm shell than the KV-122's

with the KV-122 i get better mobility than the IS so i can get to places faster, rotate and keep up with the flow of the game, more view Ranger than the IS that matter a lot more than a tiny bit of DPM that does not matter on a Trading tank, tiny bit of armour that does not matter and 30hp that is nothing.

That mobility didn't help me much, as you need people with you that take 'your' hits or distract enemies. If you have important positions, but can't fight, because your allies are still behind or suddenly they decide to not move up with you to that position and hide behind you, it won't help much. The tank felt like it's a light tank with 122mm gun instead of a heavy or at least heavium.
