Trundle along the steely Soviet heavy line and snap up great discounts and missions all the way to the versatile IS-4.

I had almost forgotten this tank exists in the game, that is how little I encounter it on the battlefield.

  IS-4 was my first tier X, then it was used for city maps in CW. Now it's a collection tank.

Same here, my first Tier X :) 

Used in the last Ranked events and enjoyed very much!

Now that only tech tree tanks are available in competitive modes, IS-4 is a good contender, even if players would prefer IS-7 and Kranvagn, it allowed more tech tree tanks in. FIeld mods would help too

Holy moly, forgotten I even had this in my garage. Used to enjoy it back in the days, but not played it in the current meta.

That was my last tier 10 Russian tank bought, might  buy back the T150 while its discounted.

Time to add some more Tanks to the game Soviet Wheeled Vehicles bound to be popular ;)

No tanks left to research and just 6 Tier 10 tanks and 5 SPGs left to buy

I bought IS-4 when it was tier 9, and this tank was my first tier 9 tank. When they moved it to tier 10, I had only the D25T (not the fancy D25TS, like nowadays) gun on it and I decided to sell it instead of grinding the usable gun at tier 10. I have never bought it back, maybe now. But the problem is that any other tier 10 tank would be a better investment. 

I would definitely buy it though, if I could buy the Triton style as well.

I sold ST-1 like two weeks ago but I already unlocked IS-4 so I don't care about this line anymore. 

Looks like a month free of WoT for me. 

Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining this time.

IS-4 worse gun handling than the IS-7, worse armour and slower to move around, pen on premium ammo is good but what's it's intended role or niche?

 

It's not really an inbetween tank from Obj 277 & IS-7, just seems a bit of a naff alternative to the IS-7 armour anchor, hmm performance wise it's doing better than IS-7 I guess the better standard pen helps, 277 seems more viable for an allrounder though.

 An excellent all-around tank, this steely Soviet doesn't boast any extraordinary stats, but it has no noteworthy weaknesses, either.

 

It obviously has no noteworthy weaknesses because the tank is not noteworthy at all.

 

 

Claimed by me, an experienced IS-4 user

Maybe it's finally time WG will buff ST-1 gun handling.

0.22/0.22/0.2 with 3.4s aim time is completely out of meta. The worst gun handling in tier apart the Type4 derp (the 14cm is actually better lol).
