Do not be fooled by heavy marking on it, you may try to do heavy stuff, but only when enemy have no real heavy tank to oppose you. To put it simply, you see IS-3, you die.
105mm is better choice given that accuracy got boosted and you can always sling gold.

If your prefer to get more mobility first go engines before turret
As for game play, if there's enough Heavies on the team , I play flanker with the meds and use it's mobility. If I have to play Heavy, I try to hull down and sort of play second line support if I can. Carry some premium ammo , so you'll have it if you need it.
Hopefully some others will come along to add to this, I haven't had the tank all that long(51 battles). This tank so far has been fun to play, I just need to get my damage up on this tank.
Good luck tanking.

This is a GREAT tank, but you must be flexible and able to adapt to circumstances. I find that without that approach, you will have a very difficult time in thie tank.

Generally when fighting other heavies, you want to be flanking. If that's not possible, find a wall and hug it. Because of your frontal turret, you can pop out without exposing too much of yourself and angle your upper plate pretty far. Your 105 also gets pretty good aim time, so you can get a shot off and reverse before the enemy's fully aimed - I've soloed a 110 and KV-4 with mine. While I don't use gold often, it's good to carry some rounds for if you run into a near-death tier 10 that needs killing and isn't easily flanked.

Like others said, this tank requires you to keep a very close eye on the map so you can exploit weak spots in coverage and shore up losing areas. It's not the first heavy line I'd recommend to a new player (the IS-3 is effortless to play), but it can be fun.

The L/71 will last you all the way through the tier if you are a scrooge, or you can go for more damage with L/52.
In any case, I second that you need top engine ASAP.

The only advise I can give you on this tank is to side scrape with it, you can be a God if done right...

It's not been definitively confirmed yet, just hinted as a future possibility from dev Q&A's on the Russian forums. The hull unification feature isn't coming until next year at the earliest, so I wouldn't worry about it yet.

It's a fantastic Type hunter. Angle your armor about ~20 degrees when the Type is about to shoot. It should bounce and leave the hapless, overconfident Type to his death at your hands.
