this replay shows my is3 cant spot tanks and the tanks just appear in the open, every other tank in my garage can spot and doesnt have this problem.
It has happend multiple times only with the is3.

Looks like you discovered the only disadvantage the IS-3 suffers greatly.

OP: take a look at IS-3's view range.

You are generally not going to spot much.

IS3 is a brawler not a sniper

Russian tanks are like Graboids. They don't see what is in front of them, they just sense the vibration of enemy tanks and attack in that general direction.

Indeed.
When you want all four of vents, rammer, GDL and vert stabs, how can you make room for optics?

Until Tier IX, Soviet tanks are blind as a bat. Accept that and work around this limitation by using terrain/obstacles to get closer.

My IS-3s accuracy disagrees.
