i think its not wise to position the IS3 in angle position, since its has the same ammo rack location on IS7. . .

Putting the IS-3 on an angle is suicide, i always keep mine straight since it has build in angled armor. Its really on tanks like the T-34 or Tiger in which angling is 100% necessary

no! bad Wargaming. How dare you mess up your facts.

the T34 turret is not weak on just the sides. like on the IS-3 turret- the top plate leading up to the commanders hatch is easily penetrated by a gun with 220+mm average penetration, and the commander hatch is also a major HP weakness

oops, I swear I will bring this sig back ASAP

I was wondering about that too. I always notice the improvement from vents, same with BIA.

An IS-3 tried to rape me once, I was using KV-1S with 85mm. I shot at his cupola twice and he went <BOOM>. He had almost full HP at that time, we were both like "WTF just happened?".
I just got my IS-3 now and I don't like to angle my tank much because if you do, the tank's armor will only be angled vertically where as from the front its angled both vertically and horizontally. My tank sucks btw stock gun can't even penetrate other tier 7s properly

I put BIA in my first skills on my IS-3. BUt this video makes me think I should have 6th sense and repair...
Anyone else use BiA on heavies?
though I have same modules as they use rammer GLD and vert stab. they works great and yeah I love cities best, too.
