Couldnt agree more, IS-7 is a boss. So much fun to use, especially with its top speed just shy of 60.

A platoon of 3 can cause havoc. Or simply running with the mediums on a flank, it adds an unexpected amount of firepower.

I really question how useful this tank is anymore. Armour is decent but situational, gun is a steaming pile of crap, I'm pretty sure I've never see the top end of the damage scale of this. ROF is really the problem. 12 second reload just doesn't leave it competitive enough, as your armour is only decent if your not facing a heat slinging E-100 or a jpe100.

Your problem is as you describe, the reload at 12 secs that's pretty bad for you mine is down towards the 10sec area which at tier 10 is very effective. I have BIA and sometimes run combat rations if in CW to help all round. What you running Equipment wise. run the Rammer and Gun layer drive and wet ammo rack , I could go Vents to help even. The gun is not crap you have to use the tanks amour and speed to be effective, get that reload down to around ten seconds and use the reload and speed and amour to get your Dmg/Kills.

Great thread and good reading.  I just got my IS-7 and I'm still learning how to drive it well.

for a tier 10 the gun is not that good --lots of tier 9s out there with much better gun --was expecting more from a top tier soviet tank.

armor is good if used correctly

but 1 tier 9 med gets around you you are pretty much dead if he has a clue which is sad for a 10 heavy tank\

ill keep playing cause i bought it had some good games but just leaves me wanting a bit more from tier 10 .

Well the aim time buff is nice...but this tank is GROSSLY UNDER POWERED. 

 

I swear mine is just flat out cursed at this point.

it's a stat padder tank if you spam gold in it, with gold rounds is7 becomes really really good.

You don't need to spam sprem. 250 is plenty for any situation outside of the situations virutally everyone shoots gold at. German top tier super structures / turret faces.

Just recently I started playing my IS7. After 9 battles and a 44%WR, I am pleased with this tank.

http://wotreplays.com/site/2070330#arctic_region-nitedog-is-7

As you can see by stats, I am barely an average player, but this tank hull down is quite formidable. And it's gun is very good if you hit weakspots (as all guns are). In this replay, a Pub match, our team got into a no-win situation early in the battle. Knowing that, I was stuck between to opposing enemy flanks. Nevertheless, the IS7 was able to dish out 3538 Damage and had 5730 Damage blocked by armor. Reviewing the replay, if I had better playing skills, I would have avoided my LP getting hit by the ST-1 and T-54 and lived longer.

Is7 in a nutshell. Worst t10 gun in the game. Heat makes it so that even in situations where the armor should be good it isn't. Not that fast. Turns as slow as an e100 because hidden stats ftw. Even the [edited]turret gets penned by heat and apcr or t10 td nukes because a gun that takes half our health promotes dynamic gameplay. Oh and every time an arty [edited]clicks anywhere near you your gunner and driver are fucked. Even the [edited]Maus has something good going for it. The is7 though has nothing unless all you want to do is troll retarded pubbies and get rekt by people that aren't morons.

I couldn't have said it better myself, this tank is an complete pos, I regret selling the T-10 now because it is twice the tank the IS-7 is..... seriously...is this some kind of joke that this tank is so bad? Yeah I know my stats suck but not as bad as this tank!

Nebo,

Your English is good... just substitute Shot for Shoot. I shoot well - I have a great shot.

Most helpful post I have read yet.  I have an IS7 and made the mistake of running to the front line and trying to take on the entire apposing team only to get squashed before any support arrived.  I have not learned patients and to have more of a pack mentality.  I typically try to pair up with a E100 or Maus and moving around supporting them.  Typically I can take a kill shot right after their initial blast and I do well protecting their flanks.

that post you copied was posted in 2011 ;) , IS7 had been reworked a few times since then ;)

when i posted that i had 700 battles in my IS7 , now i have over 3000+ ;)

The IS-7 is not the best tank for HT-15 but it's how I got the T-55A
