Looks like IS6 is going premium and T10 is going to replace IS-4 as T9

    Q: Looks like it has the 122mm?
    A: Yes, 122mm most likely. ~ 100mm hull armor, somewhat equal to Lowe.

Wow nice, It looks a lot nicer than the IS-4 or the IS-3
and it will have a 122mm, looks like it will be better than the Löwe?

Thats one wild looking tank, I bet it will bounce a lot of frontal shots given the slopes.
Gonna be a tough customer to fight but thats fair. Would be honestly nice to see a better mix of Premium heavies out there. Not a complaint, just would like to see battles with something other than 7 Lowes,

It won't have the accuracy or penetration of a lowe, but if it's any more mobile I might just buy it. The lowe is slowe as a maus, and I like fast tanks.

it will have higher damage through and that means more credits, which is the point of a premium tank, but if penetration is too low it might not be worth it
and i think it will be faster than the Löwe, like the IS-3 is to the King Tiger.

Looks like the IS-4 turret, which has really good depression for a russian. This might be worth a look.

Well so much for trying not to power creep in bigger and better premiums than the Lowe.

But how could they not resist with how well the Lowe did?

I guess it'll have the 122mm D-25-T, since as far as I know it was the planned gun for pretty much every IS-series tank.
That's not an amazing gun for tier 8 - better than the KV-5, worse than any other tier 8 heavy. Armor should be decent, and the D-25-T isn't bad for a tier 8 premium gun.
Might be worth a try when it comes out. Decent gun, good mobility, the armor slopes look pretty good and it looks cool. And the turret does look like the IS-4 turret, and gun depression would be nice.

It got changed, because the IS-6 wasn't good enough to fit at tier 9 with its historical statistics. 100mm frontal armor, even sloped like that, doesn't really work for a tier 9 heavy. The IS-8/T-10 will be the tier 9 that leads to the IS-7, and the ST-1 will be the tier 9 that leads to the IS-4.

It'll be a very decent premium.

122mm D-30T
35km/h max (Will reach it easily?)
Frontal Armor for the hull:
100mm@25 (35 in terms of WoT) 174mm  (top)
120mm@38 (48 in terms of WoT) 161mm  (bottom)
I think the turret is 150mm front rounded...?

T-54 hull:
120@30(40) 186mm

I think it'll be solid for a tier 8 premium.

As long as it prints lots of money and XP win or loose, then it is a good deal.
