Very nice video. Hopefully I'll someday get the is-7 to work for me, lol.

Bar the T34 and Panther 2, IS-7 is the biggest "POS on tracks" (MorphmanMVP 1) I have ever played. The gun is absolutely atrocious in both handling and DPM. How well you do in the IS-7 depends on how well RNG treats you. You either roll 500+ every shot in one game or waste 6 shells before even dealing a single hit, that is, if you can even hit the target. Don't even get me started on the APCR. Only 303mm??? There's literally no difference between 260mm and 303mm when shooting hull down E100s, JgPzE100s, etc. This deprives the IS-7 of a valuable damage dealing asset. Armor? There're so many holes in the IS-7. Lower plate, upper plate, and underneath the tracks are all hazards. World famous facehug? Let me just back up at an angle in my E5 and shoot down on your upper plate with AP. Sidescrape? You're asking to get raped ammoracked there. Hull down? Viable if only you have more than -6° of gun depression. Mobility is trash. You're really shooting yourself in the foot for not having provisions. IS-7 can at least go above 40km/h with fuel, but without fuel you're like a beached whale with that terrain resistance.
