I've gotten quite a hang on the IS already, so no problems there.

 

I'm going to have the IS-M soon, and the stock grind looks really painful. It costs a whopping 42k XP to research the top gun, and even after that's done, you're still stuck with the stock turret which prevents it from going hulldown against higher tiers. Could anyone show me how to survive this tank at stock

 

I'd also appreciate it if someone could show me how the 705/705A tanks are played.

I'd show you but mostly my replays are teams full of 45%ers leaving me up against gold spamming tier 10s.

Learn how to sidescrape, and be prepared to spam HE at those who know how to sidescrape against you.

Rush turret and don't be afraid to spam sprem / HE.

 

Not like the top turret and gun would help it much; you'd still be vulnerable to spremspam and your gun is wonky at best.

Wiggle when sidescraping, or you will have a fast learning experience about the weak point under the edge of the turret - its a 90mm+ autopen if you let people aim at you.

Dude hear this out dude i dont want u to suffer like i did

you gotta be rich to use this tank

 

If u can afford it and u want to skip this tank asap u should use a combination of 6:2 of APCR/HE

(Its APCR is bull*#@% at 240mm pen)

And if you broke use a combination of 3:1 of AP/HE

spam those thick armored suckers with HE

 

Construct some tactics on tanks.gg because I spent 4 hours finding the best

sidescraping position against specific tanks im likely to meet and that reduced the

suffering

 

For the obj705 angle ur gun at 21 degrees left or right for optimum sidescraping position (you

can look on tanks.gg) (just over the edge of hull)

I assure u no tank with prem can penetrate u if u sidescrape at 21 degrees angle and 7 degrees elevation (u're 7 degrees above him) totally no weakspot whatsoever

 

Goodluck dude

Most tanks have that perfect setup where hardly anyone can pen you....

 

And how to you tell the other team to stop while you gt into position now all chat is gone?

Grinding the IS M currently, not fully upgraded yet.


 

Yeah, its a tough grind, basically I just try not to fight the tough tanks.

And if I am forced to, I just try to buy as much time as possible, only side-scrape to draw enemy fire (and hopefully bounce) then return fire (and hopefully hit and pen).


 

And I only do my daily X2s.

Don't think i ever used gold ammo on the ism. AP and lots of HE worked a treat.

Only the stock gun, top gun was pretty workable.
