1) I thought we all knew the game wasn’t balanced?

B)  how is this unbalanced? Looks like another 122mm pike nosed platform.

Stronger upper plate than the IS-7, stronger sides than the IS-7, very trolly rear armor, 420 alpha, 6 degrees of gun depression, strong turret, faster top speed than is-5 (50 kmph opposed to 42) and the list goes on.

Just what tier 8 needs - another Soviet heavy that is an IS-3 derivative. Not enough of those around yet....

Looks like another T-34-3 type tank.

The T-34-3 was a loser, so I don't see why this one should be any better.

 

A medium tank with the alpha and long reload of a TD, but less penetration.

 

I smell another turkey in a crate.

I suppose they will, if it's a collector. Probably gonna be like the smasher, sell it broken op, then Nerf it. Although this thing is gonna need a much heavier Nerf.

The oddity is the slightly higher alpha (420 vs 400) compared to the other Russian 122s. It's balanced with a slower reload.  Top speed isn't as big of a deal as power-to-weight, and this is heavier with slower acceleration compared to the IS-5 and IS-3.  While the upper plates are drastically angled, the lower plate is ginormous and weak.

What about the M4/FL10: https://blitzhangar.com/en/tank/m4-fl10

 

I don't know what to think of the odd mashup of a Sherman and AMX

You can sidescrape this thing too, despite the pike nose. This is because it has such a strong upper plate that it won't get penned even when angled. Another way to hide the lower plate is using the decent six degrees of gun depression and using cover. 13 seconds reload isn't that bad. IS-3 has a 12 point something second reload as well, with the same DPM.

And yes the title is inaccurate. Balance didn't exist anyways.

The tank can be angled and have all around 240 mm of armor. And this tank is mobile unlike the vk 100. Infact even the rear is tough to pen for some tier 7 meds.
