The BL-10 is the reason to get the tank. You should be using that. And also a tip: Don't play stock tanks. Most of the really good players free xp all the modules. Now, you don't have to do that, but you should always try to free xp the top gun at least.

Playing stock crew is already bad enough on a td. Try to use free xp on your way to top gun.  Takes like 2 weeks to build some 20k free xp for me.

pro tip: Take Deep Breaths Often.

Played 8 battles in this crap, made 0 damage in each match due to the stupid penetration, lost all match and have 100% loses in it.I just put it aside and played my Rhm, which I found was better that the ISU.

I used the 152 stock while grinding BL-10. Hated it. Got BL-10. Still hate it... Good luck!

The price for carrying the BL-10 at tier 8 is enormous - the gun handling is just horrible. One battle you will hit everything and mount like 4-5k damage, the next 3 - you will hit 2 out of 7 and only one pen.

ISU is one of the most amazing tanks in the game. Had 2 full hp ammo racks in a game yesterday. Full hp tiger 1 and an is3.  It's all about that bl10. That gun is devastating! It has amazing stopping power. My tip is camp for the first part of the game and once your team has the upper hand then go in for the kills. Don't lead the pack and don't get spotted.  Always make sure you have some kind of hard cover to use in case you get cod. If your not good w TD's. It will be a challenge. But once you get the hang of it you will dominate.

If you're stock, don't use the 122mm, use the 152mm ML-20. You can't pen anything with the 122mm.

Truth.  The 152 is what makes the SU-152 and ISU-152 a threat to be avoided by those nasty, horrible little hobbitses, errr... light tanks.  Any other gun just makes you a less mobile, underarmored, easier to CoD target.


The point of the game is to win.  The purpose of the game is to have fun.  They are not mutually exclusive.

If you don’t freaking love this tank once it has the BL-10, you’re doing it wrong. That gun would be good on a T10 TD! Better ROF than the American T10 TDs and similar gun handling, plus amazing 286mm of penetration makes that gun, by far, the best gun a tank can mount at tier 8, and some would argue, at tier nine. The chassis is also not bad. It’s relatively quick, and has a massive troll mantlet in addition to the standard Soviet cloaking device. You need to play it as a relatively close support tank to dodge your bad gun handling. It’s not a great sniper. Just wait for reloads and peek-a-boom. Sit behind the heavies and wait for some poor, overconfident SOB to rush out there and then you [edited]slap them to next week! Great fun, but remember, the troll cannon trolls all. Including you.

0 damage? I think it’s the player inside the tank, not the tank itself. Maybe watch some how to TD videos from Bushka.

Agree with the comments that the 122mm d-25 is pretty useless. I'm going with the stock 152 loaded with HE. Two mediocre outings with the 122mm convinced me. I'll grind with the 152.

The top guns is the ONLY choice for the ISU. Before I got the BL-10 I was doing really really bad.. after BL-10 I managed around 1.9k-2.2k average damage.

Don't play the game anymore. If you see me online, it is most likely someone else playing.

I’m grinding this tank now as well and it makes me want to scream!!!

 

It’s too dependent on a spotter to be of any use without a decent team.   So some games you get a goose egg because you just can’t get a target to actually hit before the enemy team is bearing down on you.   You can’t chase so you literally are waiting for targets for you team to show.   Finally if you get impatient and chase out of frustration, you’re screwed.   Lol.  

 

As mentioned the gun handling will drive you nuts.  

 

The games are hot and cold.   Some games you’ll get off only 3 shots and have great stats.  

 

Update:  Let look at today’s frustrating results.

Anyone got a map guide for the ISU-152?

 

On some maps, I just don’t know where the optimal positions are for this tanks.  

 

Thanks!
