Seems that KV-13 is better than IS, but what's your opinion about this?
The IS armor are great against noobs, but it can "easily" be destroyed, like to my vk45.02, but I don't remember any time that I faced an KV-13.
And yes, I  already searched about this question, but the posts are old ~2015~

Do everyone a favor and when you get to tier 8 on the KV13 don't use the 100mm on the Is3 be decent and get the top gear on the IS

In all honesty, the KV-13 is garbage. It's slow, and it's armor is very situational. There are so many better tanks out there. The IS leads to some great tanks later on, and it has a huge dose of alpha at tier 7. So, I'd go IS.


I'll get around to changing my name eventually...

I think the KV-13 is garbage.


It doesn't have the mobility of a true med, and the armor isn't even that great.


The IS on the other hand, for a heavy, has pretty good mobility, and the 122 packs quite the punch, whereas KV-13's 85mm is fairly weak and can't compete with the guns on the T43 and the Dragon

Armor isn't for sitting still like a tard - it's for forcing your opponent to aim longer and costing them time and focus.  Drive the KV-13 normally like any medium and you'll bounce more shots than you can shake a stick at.


KV-13 is the most op tank in the game.

I have both. My only tier 7 tanks. I do much better in the KV13 than the IS. The irony of that is I am a much better heavy driver than Medium. The KV13 is the first medium above tier 4 that I have above 50%WR(57%). Some call it a heavium. 


The IS is raved by many but I struggle in it.  I have almost 300 battles in it and still have my share of failed battles. One battle I dominate with 2000+ dmg the next I'll only do 400. The armor is similar between the two. I bounce a lot of shots in the KV. It has a fast reload and can dish out some dmg. Of course the IS can to. 


I would try them both. 



Above is a link to a thread I started on KV-13 vs T-43. It may help.
