Loving the IS-3 Defender and making a long list of tanks to buy with all the credits I am earning now. Looks like I am going to have to buy extra garage slots now. Lol

 

By the way anyone know if the IS-3 Defender gets Preferential Matching or will it be seeing tier X after the Update?

I've seen gameplay of Defender on one of the other servers. Poor guys got in tier 10 matches ;-;

Defender is an awesome tank though and is good credit earner, you just have to manage the very long clip reload.

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).

This tank is a turd.  

Premium ammo magnet.  

Everything pens it.  

Ridiculous reload is a guaranteed loss if your team dissipates.

The Defender is a grate tank. A gun laying drive with vertical stabilizer a big plus. Reloading time not the best, still an enjoyable tank for a good game

Too bad it is only for a few people. From what I have seen, the IS-3D is head and shoulders over the IS-3 and most everything else in that tier.

The IS-3D hates me.  So, IMHO, you aren’t missing much.

1. Don't Necro old threads.

 

2. There is no such thing as posting a "forum" you are currently on the forums.

 

3. Go back to the forums Homepage, click on categories you are gonna post about and any sub categories.
