I recently played a lot with IS-2 (I still have some X5 missions on the tank), and it is surprinzingly works very good with the new stabilizer equipment (improved rotation mechanism). The tank gun-handling is flat out better, also the turning speed with well-trained crew is around 50. Btw IS-2M is almost the same tank, but it has better armour.

I have IS2S and it's a nice tank and I guess this is just a bit more mobile version. I always liked IS tanks since IS is first tank I played decently back in the noob days. :D

It works so well with that equipment bc its turret turning and aiming speed is abysmal. Which means you cant slap on a turbocharger, bc you have no room for it in your equipment slots.

 unmatched alpha damage of 390!

 

Yeah, unmatched except for the IS, IS-2, IS-2 Berlin, IS-2 shielded, KV-122, ISU-122S, SU-122-44... am I forgetting anything? Aside from SU-152, but that's honestly better off and more fun with the 152mm.

 

If the IS-2M had, say, a 100mm gun, instead of the horribly overrepresented and in all honestly kind of terrible 122mm (aside from TD's, it's only worth using from tier VIII and up), this might be kind of an interesting vehicle. Oh well, one can dream I guess...

2S is a lot stronger than the 2M, since it is basically immune frontal to lower tier tanks, where the 2M is easy to pen.

Sorry not for me

I bought the IS2 Berlin with BIA crew and yes its a nice tank and I won the Shielded variant.

In a game which already has a Standard IS, 2 Premium Versions and a Chinese variant all of which are very similar do we need another.

Whats its unique selling point.

 

I see from W.Ps description it has thinner but better sloped armour and I can see that though it weighs more than the others and has a smaller engine.

It should have a better rof though.

IS-2 model 1944 (sometimes "IS-2m")
1944 improvement with D25-T 122 mm gun, with faster-loading drop breech and new fire control, and improved frontal hull armour using thinner armour with a more efficient shape.
 
IS-2M 1950s modernization of IS-2 tanks.

Yo, so you admit its a copy paste?

 

In the game, this means slightly more HP, bigger ammo capacity, and a slightly faster aim time compared to the classic IS-2.

 

How is it better than IS, IS-2 (Chinese), IS-2 the one with the stripes over it - I guess berlin one, IS-2 Solar panel or the KV-122?

Sometimes I see that tank.

What do you think it is? Is there anything that needs to be changed on that tank?
