If you like angling, the IS-4 is the way to go. Also, the IS-4 has slightly better rof, accuracy, and pen than the IS-7, so you might like that.

On the other hand, the IS-7 has AMAZING frontal armor when front on, and side armor is also decent. I prefer the IS-7 (test server), but you can choose based on personal preferences.

really download the test server and try both. its a great way to see if a tank you like is worth the grind. as for your question i like the IS-7 better

Same. I tested the IS-7 on server... God, you can bounce a few high tier guns! IS-4 mostly cannot. But IS-4 gun is slightly better. Also, IS-7 is faster (it has better end-speed), but for what I could see, it's not more mobile, quite the opposite.

But bouncing an Object 268, is bouncing an Object 268. I'd go for the IS-7.

I slaughter IS-7's when I run my IS-4.

Problem is people don't like it for clanwars. IS-7's speed is better liked.

Yeah, I wonder about it since they moved IS-4 to tier 10, as I had it elite before patch I have access to IS-7, but on other hand, I have T110 with uber crew trained non stop in T34, best choice for clan wars currently. Once I heard about incoming tank locking, so I prepared myself, 3 tier 10 heavies, 1 tier 9 medium, 1 tier 9 TD, 1 tier 5 scout. And suddenly no tank locking. And thats why due to T110 I never bought IS-7. ( and did whole 8 battles in IS-4 as tier 10 so far )

Play style wise, IS-7 is much like IS-3, where IS-3 is Banner and IS-7 is Hulk. IS-4 reminds me of tier 6 KV-3 - slow piece of armor with scary gun, lost many battles due to inability to relocate.

Got both and the IS-7 suits my playing style better than the IS-4. In fact, I prefer the IS-3 and IS-8 over the IS-4.

Most folks may not not notice but the IS7 has a faster turret rotation which means a lot to me.

Grind wise IS-7 should be first.
IS-8 uses BL-9 from IS-3, then it unlocks M62 - shared top gun between ST-I, IS-8 and IS-4. Everything is fine here.
However, ST-I have no access to tier 9 gun from KV-4, therefore you are stuck with tier 8 gun until you unlock BL-9, then tracks, then turret, then M62. All while both IS-3 and IS-8 can mount top cannon without any other upgrades.

I wanted to write how IS and IS-3 are credit wise self sustainable, but then I noticed you have Type 59.

So here is ultimate IS-3 hint:

Shout to your driver: "Drive me closer! I want to hit them with my sword!" and hope that driver will wobbly your hull like a jelly.

I have both.  I just got the IS-4 yesterday and like it a lot already.  The IS-7 is the easier route to go and a great tank.  It will be easier to go up the IS-4 line after doing the IS-7 line thanks to having most of the guns unlocked.
