The lack of health is killer since it has lost its mobility.

The IS7?

Take a blank slate...

Advertise it as a powerful Russian vehicle. Give it the Russian downsides, disregard adding the upsides.

Advertise it as a brawling tank. Give it horrible brawling movement.

Advertise it as well armored. Give everyone gold ammo.

Advertise it as well gunned. Add a bunch of better equipped tier 10s.

Yea, that's the IS7. It's better then the IS4, though. The IS4 is like the IS7 but slower, with less alpha, and without any decent frontal armor. I always feel bad penning those frontally in my KT.

+1.

And if I could, I'd give you more.

no one loads gold for the IS-7 so it still has the armor advantage. E4 gold rounds bounce off the turret.

IS-7 feels like a pile now, thus why I haven't used it in a long time.

a couple weeks ago I finished the grind to my IS-7.

I think you guys are exaggerating, it's still a fun/competitive tank, and my stats aren't even as good in it as some of you guys.

That being said, I do agree that it is missing a little something. My buddy got his T110E5 around the same time I got my IS-7, and I must say, platooning with him and seeing that his tank turns quicker, has similar armor (if not a bit better), the gun has better pen, reloads much faster, aims much faster and is much more accurate, I do get a bit jealous. The only thing I have on him is alpha and a bit of speed. It bugs me that his 120mm gun with 2 loaders reloads in like, 8-9 seconds IIRC, and my 130mm gun with 2 loaders takes 11-12 seconds IIRC.

It's not the tank that used to be anymore since 8.0 (armor wise). Thats even before the gold rounds for credits. Got penned by tanks that never were able to pen me frontally.

Only used it in x5. Other than that i stopped playing it for good.

since the armor isn't impressive, give us more mobility like the IS-8, the same or a little better mobility, and less aim time, keep the trash armor, but give us speed and mobility.

Just waiting for SerB to be like 'oh f**k it' and make the IS-7 historically accurate. It went 60 km/h and had an autoloader. That'd fix it good.

People who say never angle have no idea what they talking about. Depending on the distance, elevation and where you getting shot at (pay attention to their guns) you have to face them straight on or slightly angle, wiggle your hull and/or turret.

I have to agree with the OP, after testing E5 on the test server, IS-7 feels extremely clunky. I have no problem with its armor but buff to accuracy, aim time, gun depression or maneuverability would be nice.

The IS-7 is perfectly fine, really don't know what u guys mean, I just had a game in mine where arty took me down to 1300hp from the beginning and I finished the match with 100hp 4 kills and winning the match with only me and 1 arty left. All it needs is a minor hp buff that's all

Actually SerB hates it. No jokes.

And it really went 60 km/h at roads and had autoloader with 7-8 RPM.

Anyway buffing/nerfing was Zlobny field of work, SerB have no time for this.

I only play my 4 and 7 for DD's for crew xp so the off chance whoever is calling a clan battle asks me to drive one it's ready...other than that they both suck. Yea it's nice to bounce (sometimes) shots from high damage tier X's but the straight up shit accuracy, and slow reload of both is just too frustrating with the higher ROF tanks out there. Just too damn frustrating to have several shots hit the dirt 20m away when the target is 25m

Honestly all I think it needs is an aim time buff. The time it takes for that reticule to close is annoying
