Yeah, you have no idea what you're talking about. It moves as well as an IS, better armored, with the same top gun. The reload speed with the D-25T is noticeably BETTER than the previous top D-2-5T.
If you loved the upgrade from the KV-3 to the IS in terms of mobility but hated the drop in armor, the tier 7 KV-3 is everything you ever wanted. Don't listen to people that are clearly not playing the same game everyone else is.
There is difference between SPEED and mobility. Mobility is the turning ability of hull and turret. Is-1/2 and Kv-3 may have fairly equal speed, but the Is-1/2 turns alot better. Is-1/2 turns is around 50% or more faster depending on equipment.
and while the RELOAD speed of the two 122mms is noticeable, its still low penetration and really inaccurate, which you are ignoring. he rate of fire of the 122mms mounted on the kv-3 and Is-1/2 are almost the exact same.
Kv-3 is better armored in turret, but thats the only upside. Is-1/2 is smaller, more mobile(same speed overall) with same guns.
