I just got the Is-6 Soviet Heavy Tank from the bond shop, it is overall fun to play (except for long ranges) but i do have some questions about it, and i thought maybe some of you can answer them.

 

What equipment should i be running on it (at the moment i run Modified Configuration on primary, Vents and Gun Rammer on the rest of the slots)?

 

I've also added a Poll so you guys can check what equipment you use or recommend to use given the tank's characteristics.

Although it is tempting, the spall liner probably doesn't do what you think it does and should probably be avoided. Also, if you want my general thoughts on the IS-6 and have the time/inclination, full recent review below (yes, I got frustrated in this and used a spall liner for a while but I wouldn't advise it).

Much appreciated, thank you guys !

@lord_chipmonk i'm viewing your video and taking into consideration every bit of info.

@Gruff_ i was thinking about that myself but i do think that the repair is a must on the IS series.

A real certificate of poverty that HE ammo is a better gaming experience than basic ammunition!

122mm HE can be effective, though I wouldn't load it exclusively.
