Overpowered, seeing that it gets APCR prem rounds.

Give it HEAT of similar pen and it'll be balanced.


I play artillery because I like to promote dynamic gameplay.

Armor buffs all around but no gun changes?

 

Look forward to the IS-6 version of this vid being made soon.

That was the entire point?

The armor buff makes it a better SP, that is faster, has more reliable armor, an APCR round that does more damage. Only has worse bloom and aim.

That was absolutely fantastic :D

 

Nice to see the IS-6 getting a buff, it seriously sucks against current tanks. If only they had increased AP pen... even to just 200mm :(

Maybe because I find it quite decent as it is with some use of premium shells.

Serious :P

 

Ever faced a competent IS-3 driver in an IS-6? There's just no competition there. IS-3 wins hands down every time - 225 AP pen on the IS-3 completely rips apart IS-6's. If you're really lazy just load gold and it's an insta-win :P

I was thinking of keeping it's mm +1 and buffing the pen just a bit. Heck, the FCM has 212 pen and that only gets +1...

lel, but it's a pretty common tank to face in an IS-6. Tiger 2's are easy to kill in the IS-6, of course. I should have known, the only thing that is more stronk than a Russian tank is another stronker Russian tank.

There, you said it yourself. IS6 is better than Tiger II but still gets pref mm, by that logic, it should be nerfed LOL :D

But anyway, I think you get the point.
