the only way to get it is to buy it in the gift shop. so when 8.8 someone will buy it tell everyone how it is then you can buy it.

Serb, our lord and savior, said it may show up in the second iteration of the test server.  We'll have to wait until then.

You can get both the 112 and the 34-3 by playing one battle on test server. It's one of the missions.

Got around to playing it on test. Haven't really seen any Tier10 battles of it, so it may have preferred matchmaking. As for it's performance on various aspects here's what I think:
- Speed is a bit slow, it can reach up to 48kmph on flat hard surfaces but takes quite awhile before it does. Expect to go 30kmph on average with this, 35 if not turning too much. It's mobility is about on the same level as the IS-2 or 110 making it decently balanced for Tier8 imo. Nowhere near as zippy as the 111 model 1-4 and the 113 of course.
- UFP is very bouncy (as expected), even the 250mm HEAT of an opposing 112 won't do anything but scratch the paint. LFP is a different story. Basically take the 113's frontal plate and stick it to this.
- Turret seems bouncy, haven't really noticed any shots from other T-34-3's and 112's going thru the turret from the front so far. Everyone either aimes at the rear/sides or the LFP if it's visible.
- The gun I feel is a bit underwhelming, but something had to be lacking to give this thing preferential MM. It seems to carry over more or less the IS-2's level of reload, accuracy, and aim time. Even with my 3 skill WZ 111 model 1-4 crew with BIA, Vents, and Rammer, I figure it's just under 12seconds to load shells, probably a bit less like 11.5 (don't have any mods on test so can't really count it accurately).
- Gun Bloom and aim time of the thing is nasty, get a Vertical Stabilizer and have the Gunner with Snap Shot, it helps quite a bit and makes it more tolerable.
- Gun depression is OK, it's -6 right?
- Credit income/earning, hard to say. Have yet to get in a game where my team actually won so far (worthless Russians everywhere). But I did hard carry a losing game and earned 100k for doing 3.7k damage, getting a Courageous Resistance award thing, and 1st class mastery with it. Tank obviously died, but repair cost was about 7.6k, I forgot how many AP and HEAT rounds I used, but was a fair amount (at least 6-7 HEAT, and probably under 10 AP) and I spent under 40k to resupply ammo costs on that. I earned 58.3k credits in net profit though due to the 3.7k damage and the award I got.
Overall, my impression is this tank is a beast for hull down. UFP bounces all sorts of shots, as does the turret. It can also get around and move decently for a heavy, the gun could be seen as the weak point of it all, but is arguably better than what the IS6 has to offer (HEAT is garbage when you deal with spaced armor of course and with how inaccurate this thing is, you may miss an aimed shot and do nothing to an enemy vehicle due to that). It could be a close range brawler, but requires some really clever bobbing in and out manuevering so that the opponent(s) don't hit that soft LFP.

Play it on the test servers and if they don't change the special MM, 112 > IS 6.

Figured out another (I guess seemingly obvious) weakspot on the front of the 112, commander's hatch on the turret. IDK what the armor is, but point blank with regular AP of the 112 penetrates through it.

this thing is actually a pile of crap... basically no different then the SP gun except it puts out a bit more damage (if u can pen anything).. basically requires u to use premium shells just to pen anything.. biggest waste of money.. don't do it..

Going by this theory the IS-6 would also be garbage, I have the 112 and IS-6 on my SEA account and don't have serious problems with either tank.
Maybe the player and not the tank..

The IS-6 is way better imo. Harder to hit weakspots, significantly higher DPM, better OTM fire-control, less module damage. Only thing the 112 has going for it is higher top speed.
