for me its the tiger 2. it can take a beating it can also bounce all the other tier 8s almost all the time and it has a hard hitting gun and can move pretty good too. but people like the is3 more because it can bounce more lower tier guns. when I mean by that anything with more then 200 can pen the upper plate of the is3 everywhere.

The IS-3 and the Tiger II are really good.

is-3 and 110 for DPM and Alpha, Tiger2 for armour, T32 for gun depression and turret armour 50-100 for its auto loader.

First of all, the WZ 111 is a tier 9 heavy tank.

Secondly, if I had to pick the best tier 8 heavy tank in the game, I would personally go with the IS-3. It has a very good gun with a very good alpha strike for its tier. It has decent accuracy at range, but not the greatest. It is pretty quick and maneuverable for a heavy tank, but still maintains a solid amount of armor, and is just overall a very well rounded vehicle.

Depends on your playstyle. I heavily favour the T32 due to it's superior gun depression and super turret.

IS-3 was a decent machine high alpha, good agility, great bouncy armour.

Tiger 2 would have been great if the stock turret didn't make me rage sell it. Over all would have been a great tank.

AMX 50 100 that autoloader + 232 mm pen is a great support tank ... needs a damn good team though to support you as well

I stand by the T32. It is much less "noob-proof" than the IS3 or the Tiger II, however. It does take some getting used to, but if you spent any amount of time in the T29 and other American hull-down monsters, you will be well prepared.

Sure, the gun leaves a bit to be desired... But it is agile, has great depression, great view range, the turret bounces like a rubber ball...

It really does depend so much on your play style. I spent a ton of time in mediums before trying out the American heavy line. I like some flexibility in my tanks. While the Soviet line is (in)famous, fun, and great for head-to-head slug-fests, I don't like having to expose my entire machine to shoot down a hill. The lack of depression on those things really limits where I can be useful...

Just food for thought.

Tiger 2 takes a lot of practice in order to get good in. T29, T32, T34 have great depression, great alpha and all you gotta remember is hull down...(hide the front plate)...For those reasons T32 is more noob friendly than the Tiger 2, but IS3 is the most noob friendly due to bouncy armour and its low silouette.
This is an American Heavy Tanks forum so probably people will say T32 is the best-which is fine...but if you post this topic in Tank Comparison or General Gameplay the results usually go in favor of the IS3
I prefer the Konigstiger....aka King Tiger...but most people prefer the IS3.

T32. Go hull down and you become a doom fortress.

I haven't played all of them, which voids my opinion, as it would be is3.

T32 is my favorite, but the Ausf A is a close second.  The 50 100 is the one I'd take if someone told me we had to win a game, but I don't enjoy playing it at all.

played most of them and some real good performers but in end think IS-3 so far has edge on all, speed, armor, firepower.  Just no situation it cant fit in well takes a bit of getting used to the hull but once you got it the tank is a monster.

IS-3 and Caernarvon for me. The IS-3 for pure all around beast tank, the Caernarvon for terrain abusing mobility finesse play.

Out of the ones I have played. I would say the IS-3 then the tiger II. This not to say I dont like my T32 it just not been the best tank to me. It hard to carry a match with it 105mm gun. And when most of my matchs are tier 9 and 10 the gun come off even weaker.  But hulled down it hard to kill less there arty around.

Personally I think the IS-3 is the best non-premium tier 8 heavy, with the T-32 and Tiger II coming in close second and third places, respectively.  Of course, the IS-6 (not on the list) is just an awesome steel wall of mass destruction.
