IS-3 Isn't very good.

Apart from having very strong frontal Armour the IS-3 gun isn't very good I am using the shell with 230 pen within 100m but you can't pen crap with this tank it's gun is too weak for the tier that it's at. I feel like I just wasted $115 on eagles to get this tank it's **** house.

Let the "Git gud" comments commence.

IS-3 is very good when fights vehicles below its B.R but it is useless when when fights 8.0 - 8.3 vehicles with high pen APDS/HEAT/HESH rounds.

Git gud :P

Well yes.... you did....  I've got over 8000 battles and still don't have it - I can buy it now, but it's too far ahead of my"pack" of tanks - I'll wait a while.

 

Expensive tanks won't improve your game.

 

as a side note, the IS-3 was one of a handful of Airfix 1/72 scale plastic kit models available when I started gaming (way back....) and I still have visceral memories of assembling it and various others (T34 with 76 and 85 turret, M3 h/t, Sherman, etc), the smell of glue, trying to join the rubber tracks together with hot pins, painting, etc....

No not just the IS-3 my main goal was the IS-3 but I unlocked a whole bunch of other stuff I wanted too.

Below it's BR it's a good tank yes above it's BR is a no win agenda and it's same BR it's not going to pen anything from the front only side and rear pens or if you're really close the lower plate pen.

No, it's not. Also they have over-detailized the model to the point where it can both bounce atgms and also get penetrated by guns that in reality would have no chance at all. I wish they'd quit "improving" the model because now its a piece of swiss cheese like the IS-2 and that isn't right.

A 'L2P' comment can be an ignorant statement unless it is extremely obvious the player is horrible with that said vehicle and/or refuses to understand it.

 

The IS-3 still is a enemy that should not be ignored or be treated like a weak tank, even if it does not have the armor to bounce shots it still has the firepower to take down most vehicles within BR range..

 

All i can say is there is really nothing you can do about it and the best way you can do well in it is to be a little more cautious until you feel you can play aggressive with the tank.

Yesterday I saw panther 2 one shotted IS-3 in front, and I thought wtf is this ****?

I've had King Tigers shoot through the hatch over the breach before. 

Sometimes the weird angles of it can lead to interesting deaths. 

 

But it's not a bad tank really. 

If you get into an 8.0 battle, you are of limited use, but it's still pretty nice if you catch out a leopard or an M60 or something like that, cus the 122mm does wonders on them. 

In games where you are top tier, it's great, as you're almost immune to most guns you'll face, baring British guns, meaning you can rack up a lot of points simply for bouncing 88mm shells. 

Just keep working at it and you'll work it out.

Bad modeling. Try to bounce anything off a KTP or Panther's shot trap into his hull, never happens.

  • 250mm turret part is cast so it can get penetrated by long 88 half of the time because it's effectively 235mm

IMO IS-3 should be 7.0, simply because it's has so many weakspots, and because the slow turret traverse, slow reload and the shells not oneshooting doesn't help

I do fine with mine at 7.3. Only been shot trapped a few times the hole is hard to hit if you're moving you're turret around the ring I've been killed at more than anything and even that is hard to hit unless you're up close. The IS3 is one of those tanks that gets screwed if it fights leopards and M60s but does very well when dropped with Tiger 2s, M26E1s M46s and so on. But I still dear the T54 more than the IS3 mostly due to if he doesn't kill me with the first shell he has awhile to reload and that gives me somewhat of a chance.

Gaijin needs to gib the 3BM-7 APDS and 3BK-10 HEAT shells to the IS-3 (IS-4M as well). Those shells are already in the game, but (currently) only usable with the SU-122-54's D-49 cannon. However, both can be used with the D-25T just like how the BR 471 series of shells are able to be fired from the D-49.

Give both apds and heatfs to IS4M and bump it to 8.0

Give apds to IS3 and bump it to 7.7

there was a time when is3 was to good for fight vs 6.7 tanks, but that time was longggggggg ago, after the patch that change the turret ring and make the is3 shot trap the biggest one in game, any long 88mm and 90mm can kill it w/o problem, is3 should be 7.0 indeed, t32 its much harder to kill by apcbc 6.7 tanks and it sit at 7.0

Those shells would not justify any such bumps, at best it might justify their current standings.

It wouldn't be a good idea to bump up their BR's.

But you object to IS-3 (IS-4) to 7.0 and 7.3. So I request to increase the position of mk-10 and T34; T32. From 6.7 and 7.0 to 7.3 7.7. The tanks I listed above have IS-3 armor in the same configuration as the IS-3 armor. MK-10 uses HESH ammunition. M46 Use Heatfts. The US T-34 uses ammunition with IS-3 and IS-4M specifications.
