IS-3 Defender is my go to Tank to generate credits. The last 8 days in a row I have generated over 1 million credits a night, almost exclusively in Defender. Win or Lose it prints credits. Make me feel like Kind Midas. I went from 12 Million credits and change to 20.7 Million credits in 8 days.
The only downside to this vehicle is the 25 second reload to get 3 more shells in the magazine. After that you get 3 shots with about 7 seconds reload. I try to time my reloads so I don't get caught empty, but it happens. Always best to be with other tanks and I always notify that I'm reloading and not afraid to ask for help if caught empty.
It is a Defender so it does play better as a standoff vehicle rather than trying to mix it up at close range, but I've nailed a few RU251's in close quarters combat (and they have killed me too often due to reload).
