>>>canine prints have claw marks, yet "mans best friend" camo does not; it would seem then that mans best friend is a cat... probably a leopard.

Viewed from a med or light tank, the best armor profile is is6.

the slightest lean back and it can’t be shot from anywhere. Even sides, even the back are treacherous.

 

all other IS u can shoot high in the tracks and reliable deal dmg or vpeven fire.

is5 rear is big and wide, and it is a HE heaven if u have circa 100mm pen, and insta pen for any other ammo.

is-3 back is quite soft as well as all the other clones. 

 

is6 is all based on angles. You have to think twice and seriously consider prammo, which reduces even further ur firepwer.

On the contrary, I would much rather have to deal with the sides and rear of IS-6 thanthan IS-3 and IS-5. It may be a bit stronger behind the tracks, but it lacks the strong and trolly spaced section those other two have. It's pretty slow and easy to circle, because of its poor traverse. Sidehugging IS-6s in mediums isn't nearly as difficult as IS-3s and 5s. 

IS-5 has a much stronger rear, because of the 120mm side plates which may troll. IS-3 also has 40 degrees of traverse, so it's very fast.

The IS-6 has a higher skill floor, and remarkably higher skill ceiling than the other IS-X tier 8 tanks.

   It can be angled like no other IS-X in 8.

 

If I was going to see a Unicum on Red, I'd rather have them in any other IS-X than a -6, but the -6 isn't as forgiving in the hands of the average Blitz player

I think 5.5 was good for the game - But I also want my Kenny OP nerfed. 
Sorry I haven’t aced the Smasher yet - So I’m still ruining tier 6-8

I agree with this. There is a lot you can do with the extra DPM, but only if you know how to use it. IS-5 and IS-3 have much more inaccurate guns, which really lowers the skill cieling. IS-3 is a bit better.

This is a great point really. Some good players wiggle in it and get a lot of bounces. But the numerous weak points a lot of people talk of can be nullified to a point by constantly changing your angles, shifting as much as possible. You give people different views quickly, and its very hard for them to hit a weakspot, especially in another Russian heavy. You constantly shift and change your angle, give them different facets of the armor and its more effective.
