I’m thinking I might get a bit of crap for saying this but I got my is7 before all the buffs were given in 4.6 now the is7 kinda fells left behind especially being the is4 got its upper plate buffed but I’m feeling the my is7 gets penned frontally no matter what I do and yes you get some lucky bounces but normally I get sent back to the garage not to long after the battle starts I will point the nose at an enemy then someone 10 feet to the side of him goes straight through the plate closest to him and this pattern continues till I’m back in the garage, and you should’ve been there when I 1v1ed one in my e5 he face hugged me as he should but I had the gun depression to get to the upper plates and went through every time he lost quite badly to say the least,I’m thinking maybe with a buff of 25mm to each upper plate would make quite the difference on the battlefield

You don’t sound like you play mediums.

I may have a few too many tanks. I think I was over 150 in garage by last count.

Yes - Lets just keep buffing all the tier 10 heavies until we never see a medium tank in the game again.

The upper plates should be just fine. You need to constantly wiggle your tank a tiny bit to bait the shots of your enemies. You should never have a flush upper plate for the enemy to shoot at. 

 

A 25MM buff to each upper plate will return the IS-7 to a superheavy which the title belongs to the IS-4.

Well I’m saying that at least before the is4s upper plate buff the is7 was the go to for frontal armor and the is4 if you wanted to side scrape a Russian tank, now I don’t see a reason to get the is7 since you can’t angle it like the is4 to get more effective armor

So many replies I want to quote, but that would take too much a. space and b. time.  

 

 

 

My answer is no, most meds bounce off the sides of the IS-7, heaven forbid the front.

The IS-7 is also too slow.  It should go 65 km/h

Why is the T-62a getting all the accuracy buffs??  The IS-7 needs those too.  It should be a mobile sniper with that armor profile.

Many of the IS-7's I see played are snipers so yeah I guess they need that accuracy buff as well. Maybe add another 500 meters per second to the shell velocity as well.

Let's get real. IRL, the IS-7 was "only" able to go up to 60. I would be ok with that.

yes it’s alpha is way outclassed by the 183 and needs to be buffed.

With a 183 mm too, obviously.

Be creative there are other ways to “balance” the IS-7.
