I picked up the container collection for 10k gold and pulled a WZ-112-2. I'm not thrilled about yet another IS type of tier 8 heavy but it's winrate according to blitzstars is 58%, which is quite a bit better than the WZ-111 and WZ-110.

 

What is your experience with the tank? Is it a decent tank? Do you have any tips on how to play it?

 

I already have an Obj 252U. How does it compare to that?

It's one of my favorite tanks!  It is an IS clone but with one big giant honking difference:  no stupid pike nose!  This means it has the IS advantages [low profile, troll armor] but angling and side scraping still work.  The lower front plate is pennable, but if you're good at angling it's no problem, it does well out in the open as long as you've got your heavy skills on point.  As with most IS tanks, esp the 252, when hull down it's really hard to pen, and it scrapes decently.  The bad parts:  it's slow as molasses, I highly recommend running engine boost.  It's got a typical IS gun, it's pretty troll, not great for long distance shots, and low DPM, so I also recommend running adrenaline.  Also, the armor on the top deck is nonexistent, and it's slow, so like every tier 8 heavy, it's susceptible to missiles if it's low tier.

 

I love heavies, and one of the things I love the most about them is bouncing shells, and this is one of the very best in the whole game at getting bounces, if you know what you're doing.  Enjoy it!

The best heavy of the IS clone heavies in 8. 
  Run CS, DPM is bad, but pen is too.  
As Cletus says it’s a solid bouncer, angle and laugh.

Great review by Cletus, what he said. I'd add that it has (proportionally) an exceptionally high reverse speed, so it also excels at peek and boom. Got this on the cheap in winter fair and have thoroughly enjoyed it. 

 

Recommend this video review as Pantoufleee is quite a fan of it.

All the good things that were mentioned are true. It’s my fave IS clone and probably the best of all IMO. The biggest negative for me is the shell velocity. It is not unbearable, but it can hinder the occasional peek a boom.

Thanks guys! Looks like I will actually play this one, unlike my WZ-111 that is just collecting dust.

Pikenose tanks can still sidescrape - reverse sidescrape, which is for more.. em.. advanced players.. but still.. 252U is op!

I sure do love when red IS-whatever tanks try to sidescrape, even backwards.
