With Consumables, Equipment, and Provisions, I always try to max out my DPM. Take my IS-6 for example.


Consumables: Adrenaline (+20% reload), Multipurpose Kit, Repair Kit

Provisions: Condensed Milk (+3%), Extra Combat Rations (+10%), Improved Fuel

Ammunition: 14 AP, 12 APCR, 4 HE

Equipment: Large Caliber Gun Rammer, Improved Ventilation Class 3 (+5%), Vertical Stabilizer Mk 2

Crew: All premium tanks come with 100% Crew and Modules


All the underlined consumables/provisions/equipment/crew are going to improve my damage per minute. I included my entire setup to satisfy anyone that was interested. The Condensed Milk, Extra Combat Rations, and Improved Ventilation give a combined 18% to all crew skills. Now, let's take a look at the reload time difference it makes as an example.


A stock IS-6 has 4.98 rounds per minute.

60/4.98=12.0481928, and we round that to 12.05.

Now, add on the Rammer, Vents, and Improved Combat Rations (10%) and I end up with a 10.7 second reload time.


60/10.7=5.60747664, and we round that to 5.61 rate of fire. This is a .64 increase in rate of fire, and this is huge for a tier 8 tank. 

5.61x400=2,244 damage per minute!


By comparison, a stock IS-6: 4.98x400=1,992 damage per minute!

2,244/1,992=1.12650602, rounding that to 1.1265.

With my load out above, I can increase my damage per minute by 12.65%! 5.61 rounds per minute is better than M103's 5.36, and it's nearing the Conqueror at 5.71.


As I see it, the best load out is the one that improves the rate of fire, which means you can fire the gun more and have a better chance of winning 1 v 1 duels when you're isolated (some situations like this can happen, and it's really helpful when you're at the end of the game versus multiple enemies.) I suggest you all try my set up, as it will improve your combat effectiveness. Vents and Rammer only take 2 slots, so if your tank has a module weakness such as ammo racks on Soviet mediums, install a wet ammo rack (I have one with T-44, T-54, Obj 140, and soon T-62A). If not, use vertical stabilizer to improve overall gun handling.


As a last note, by activating adrenaline on an IS-6, you would end up with 20% more damage per minute for 15 seconds.

1.2x5.61=6.732 rounds per minute! That is better than T110E5 at 6.00, and nearing FV215b at 6.90. For 15 seconds, you will have 2692.8 damage per minute. That is insane for a tier 8 tank.


As a fun fact, the IS-6 has a D-30 gun, which is a D-25T with a rammer. By installing a Large Caliber Gun Rammer in Equipment, you're effectively using 2 rammers on 1 gun.

If I have a choice between the gun rammer or vents/VSTAB I'd always take the vents or VSTAB. Accuracy or crew skills have always outweighed a bit of a faster reload. Of course vents VSTAB and gun rammer is optimal.

So GLD+vstab+rammer with using new provisions a good idea? With the addition of provisions seems as if vents can be replaced. But not sure.

Depends on playstyle... and your tank...  Your layout there misses out on optics... which can outweigh the benefits of double quick aiming gun...

Can anyone tell me if added equipment (i.e. shell rammer) increases repair costs?
