Hello, I am planning on going for a tier 10 heavy tank after I get my E 50 and my 212, I the beginning when i played the 7.3 test server I was amazed by the power of the IS 4, I liked the gun it had, even though I haven't played it I thought it's characteristic's were very good, and anyways I always have would wanted a Russian heavy tank as a tank that I'd go to till tier 10, but my play style is sniping, and I know that people usually say that Russian heavies are brawler tanks, but most of the time that I have played WoT I just like sniping, even though on some of my other games I tried brawling and I was good at it for my opinion, but why I would what the T110 is because it's said that it is a sniping mostly tank, and besides I have realized that it's not as bad as it it when, when I played the 7.2 test server I had a bad impression on it, but now I like it's low profile and it gun with good pent, by the way I basically like tanks with good pent cause I hate being put in a battle were I have trouble penetrating other tanks, and it's accuracy is good at .35, just commenting by it'd have an elite tier 10 gun with about .30 accuracy in my opinion, so yeah, I actually really want the T110, but also I want a tank with decent armor, for a brawler in my opinion the IS 4 doesn't have good armor vs high tier tanks. So please recommend me what I should get.

In my opinion the T110 has the better frontal armor but the IS-4 offers much better side and rear armor.

The guns are excellent on both tanks.  These guys are made for brawling, not sniping.  If you want to sit back and snipe with them prepare to get flamed hard by your team mates.

I'd give the edge to the T110 but you really can't go wrong either way.

depends on your playstyle really. T110 is best at long range where its harder to snipe its weakspots, and your making use of your gun accuracy.
at close range your armor becomes rather ineffective since you have weakspots which are easy to hit.

IS4 on the other hand is great at brawling, the armor isnt that great vs the new t10 guns, but it'll still bounce the occasional shots (i bounced its driverplate in my t110 just yesterday :s)

Then again the T110 can also brawl very well if u drive around and make use of your mobility, so i'd say the t110 is more versatile, because an is4 cant outsnipe a t110, but a t110 can brawl almost as well as an IS-4.

I would suggest watching some replays of both tanks and deciding which you like better.
I own both, and I'd personally suggest the T110 to you, its the funnest tank to play!

You crazy? Better dpm, better accu stationay and on the move, better aim time, better movement dispersion, better frontal armour, way better movement speed, IS4 dont even have a chance here.
ATM the only viable tier 10 HT are IS7, T110, Maus and E100 if you have spare gold all the time.

Sadly, my IS-4 is out matched by the T110. The T110 has only 2 real weakness from close to mid range. Any farther means it's not penetrable.

However, the IS-4 is a very well balanced tank. It's like... a jack of trade tank. The T110 is more geared towards frontal combat. Pray you don't get hit from the rear and sides are it's side and rear armor is tremendously weak for it's tier.

the only thing is IS4 only got 120mm for its side armour, and the lowest tier tank you will see in tier 10 is the 5s which mean they already have over 140mm pen gun for the most part.
They never fixed or mentioned the ninjanerfed side armour in 7.2 to the IS4.

Meh, that stinks. Could prove that Russian tanks aren't bias at all. See, IS-4 can be penned by tier 5 tanks from the side XD

I have both, and each requires a different gameplay. The T110 is like a heavy medium with good mobility, decent frontal armour, a very good gun. The IS-4 is like a brick sh*thouse on tracks. It's mobility is improved from 7.2 but it is still a slower tank, good armour all the way around, and a very good gun. Both guns are quite accurate and do similar damage on average. Get both if you can, but overall I find the T110 to be a more diverse tank.

From a clan war perspective:

T110's in the Attack are excellent, IS-4 on Defense is excellent.

i like my IS-4. it can brawl very easy and if you angle your tank right you can bounce any shots that come at you. only people that know how to shoot you (happens every now and then who know how to shoot) can pen you. sure the T110 has good reload rate but its an easy target for me in my IS-4 because it cant brawl very well.

This. T110 has that HUGE weak spot tumor hatch. Was eaten by a IS-4 yesterday having a peekaboo battle. I asked and all he did was "I just shot your hatch". Which as bad luck would have it, was the first thing to show in that situation.

The t110 is probably a better 1vs1 tank but the is4 def wins when you are attacked by 2+ tanks. In battle yesterday held off a m103 and a vka without taking any dmg from either by rotating front to deal with each. An m103 snuck in behind me and I still bounced a few of those shots too. I was on a red and yellow team so the other team capped before I could kill and of the three but I did end up with steel wall having shrugged off 6shots from the 2 frontal tanks and bouncing 2 and getting penned by 2 from the skulker. I'm pretty damn sure same situation in a t110 I would have died rather than ending the battle with just 2 hits penning out of 16 shots recieved.

I have IS-4 and can confirm it is not a reliable sniper tank.

If you like sniping, no doubt T110 will do better than IS-4. With that much Damage over time, gun depression, accuracy and superior frontal armor, you get a good spot and it will be hard to damage you at distance. TT110 work incredibly well with enemy at 90 degree (Im generous) in front of you, the remaining 270 suck big time. Making this tank powerful when things goes as planned but getting down quickly when surrounded by anything you will encounter.

Also people might be mad at you if you keep getting far behind the line sniping with a T110. Since it can push and hold frontaly better than a lot of tank.

Have fun !

Speaking of the t110 being nerfed, I've been told it won't. I'm running a thread similar to this (t110e5, is it worth it? and is4 vs is7) sooo yeah.

Well i only want the T110 if it won't be nerfed, cause I think it's a great tank and I wouldn't want it getting nerfed otherwise then the IS 4. Point is please keep the T110 the way it is, and overall I think it's all working out good.

IS-4 vs T110

T110 wins every match that doesn't include a opponent who can see/shoot the "tumor"

i dont have the t110 yet but im close, i do however have the IS4 and i must say it is a beast.  Whenever i see a t110 i normaly just charge at it in my is4 and face hug it and blast its tummor to bits while he bounces shot after shot off my impenetrable turret.  I must say i find the t110 a disapointing prey when in my IS4.  I have found when being attacked frontaly in my is4 if i go in revers and wigle my haul back and forth it GREATLY increases the chance of bouncing the enemy shell. (i go in reveres becuase the tank does not have neutral turning and revers seems to make wigling easier and more controlled)
