I know the st1 grind is really bad, but i can free xp at least the gun.

 

I'm kinda leaning towards the is4, because of the gun and good sidescraping ability.

 

Also which makes more credits?

 

Thanks for all the feedback

You can compare and contrast the stats of the IS4 v IS7 using Tank Compare on blitzstars. 

 

I was a bit surprised by the stat comparison myself. I thought the IS7 was clear and away the better tank, but they are both strong in their own ways.

I thought the ST1 was a way better tank than the IS 8, but that was a while ago, before all sorts of buffs and nerfs And i still have my ST1 and IS4. I didn't keep the IS8 or IS7. I found that were way too many IS7 on the field and everyone knew how to play against them. The IS 4 is more of a rarity. Probably flawed logic, but that's the route I took.

You will play neither tank for damage. You will play both tanks to block damage.

IS-7 can block shots facing forward. 

IS-4 can block shots facing forward, heavily angled, from the rear, from above, and when lagging.

 

Get the IS-4.

Whichever one is cheaper to research because both are excellent.

is7 in a nutshell is an is4 that can go 50km/h, not to mention that the IS7 has -6 degrees of depression while the IS4 I believe only has -5.

Research the IS-7 first because both lines share guns, and IMHO the IS-7 line has easier grinds.

IS-4 has better DPM and accuracy, IS-7 has better alpha (460 vs 420).

In my opinion, the is7 is only good when hulldown, facing you dead on, or dead sideways (curse you tricky is7 designers). I dont have the tank, so dont take my work for it. Is4 is able to do what the is7 does, but can sidescrape. They are basically opposites I think. One is dead on, or sidewayes, while the other is an angler. Pros and cons

IS-7 is faster, has an excellent armor profile and a terrible gun. Also its traverse was nerfed to death, really. 

IS-4 is slower (but still mobile), has an great armor as well (but it is very different from IS-7). It has a decent traverse that will allow to deal with most COD attempts. Its has an ok gun: not like E5, but much better than IS-7 so you can use it with some success at mid-range engagements as well as against heavily armoured targets - this is where IS-4 is clearly superior to IS-7 (and they both have -6 gun depression btw)

Basically they are close in potential as true heavy tanks, but quite different in playstyle...

 

Credits wise: IS-7 bleeds less credits than IS-4.

A lot of unis have been saying is4>is7. Both have been pretty evenly played in recent tournaments. They are selected based on maps and team composition. I have grinded both lines to tier 9 and prefer is4 line better. Speed tends to get me in trouble so I prefer armor>speed.

Anyone who is good at IS-4 makes it a tank to be feared.  It's the Russian Maus.  IS-7s are all the same.  There is no versatility to it - you drive toward the enemy and hope they bounce.  Also you can't rely on the gun.  

 

IS-4 is betterer
