Not really, they have inaccurate guns and poor depression.  Sure they have good armor, but that is not everything that makes a tank good

Not all of them are overpowered. Personally I think the IS7 deserves a huge nerf. It's too mobile, and the armor is too good. Like E-100 but faster and with a smaller lower plate.

IS 7 also has good mobility.

The guns are absolutely horrid, they are by FAR the least comfortable out of all the various tank groups.

I voted yes but only because you’re probaly running into kv1’s, a20’s and getting derped by unicums in kv2’s...I’d argue lower tiers they’re a better beginner tank as they are forgiving in armor profile.

I’m saying no, but that’s largely because I’m meeting the tier 7s and up. The op heavies are, like Boris said, the KV-1, and KV-2. Most others are easily exploitable, due to their low rof, and low dpm. The tier 6-8 Soviet tanks reload in like 12-15 seconds, thus rendering it possible for lower caliber guns to get 2, or even 3 shots off on them for like 600 damage vs their 400 on you

Nah fam, the new chinese line is horrendous. It's like water down soviet tanks. Their guns have even worse accuracy and take slightly longer to aim.

Not many battles for me but I really like the KV1, KV1S, and the T150, I am a older guy and they suit me. lol  I hope they don't change them in any way. Right now don't play much else except the German DW2. Please leave them alone.

No. Their guns couldn't hit the broadside of a barn from the inside, takes between 13-20 seconds to reload, and people know this. They will be able to fire 2-3 shot, or in the case of the Churchill 7/Black Prince, closer to 4-5, for every one you fire. Russian heavies force you to use hard cover, and pick your shots. You do a lot more damage per single shot, which can be very helpful in deterring a pursuit. "Do I shoot the low health (>300) t6 heavy that could be killed by one of our mediums easy enough, or do I shoot the full health t8 heavy that's holding up a flank simply by being there?" Things along those lines. I like them, but each to his own.

^^^^

There is nothing like that warm and comfortable feeling you get when your shot shanks into the dirt missing the red tank at 50m.

Or manages to bounce off the side of a M41 or AMX 13 75 at 50m as well.

The Heavies?  Nope.

 

The high Tier Mediums on the other hand...

Pffft.  That’s a summer cold compared to the raging virus identified as t-62A. It keeps mutating and becoming stronger.  Very deadly.

Longer aim time?  The aim time is exrtremly fast on the 122mm guns.
