World of Tanks IS – 8 Kills 6,3K Damage
Medals received: Radley-Walters’ Medal, Dumitru’s Medal, Steel Wall, High Caliber, Top Gun
The IS is a Soviet tier 7 heavy tank.
The IS-1 (IS-85) heavy tank was a thorough modernization of the KV-1. The tank featured the 85-mm D-5T gun. The IS-1 entered mass production in October 1943, but work was discontinued at the beginning of 1944, as the IS-2 (IS-122) tank entered mass production in December 1943. A total of 107 vehicles were manufactured.
It is the first of the Iosef Stalin class tanks available to the player. The IS represents both the IS-1 and the early model IS-2. The IS can be researched from the KV-85 or from the KV-13, which is sometimes is used as an easy grind bridge. The stock tank is the IS-1, equipped with the 85mm gun also available on the KV-85. The IS is a continuation of the KV-85 and will thus feel very similar in terms of agility and speed. When equipped with a 122mm gun, it technically becomes an IS-2, which will feel much more potent when engaging other heavies. Like most Soviet heavy tanks, the IS fares much better engaging enemies at close range where the IS can hug cover and back off when it is reloading. Thus, the IS is better for maps such as Himmelsdorf where there are mostly close-quarters fighting and no big open areas. The frontal armor on the IS is decent enough to bounce a lot of shots from lower tiers and is surprisingly bouncy even towards other tier 7 tanks and higher tier tanks if you angle the tank properly. Play this tank smartly, hit your enemy, pull back to reload and hit your enemy again. You will find yourself doing massive amounts of damage to the enemy and if you play this tank properly, you can really help your team a lot.
The IS leads to the IS-3.
