I have 100k free exp which I will need to spend the bulk of to get the turret and gun for the IS-M which I just unlocked...

 

Worth it?  It looks like from the heavily upgraded turret it would be pointless not to get the turret if I am grabbing the better gun as well.... so 70.6k free exp (need tracks too)

 

Can I get away without tracks?  Haven't bought the tank yet... just trying to decide if I should do it now or wait...   sounds like 705A is in a good place at the moment...

put on without de track.

I know you don't need to upgrade the suspension for mounting the upgraded gun and turret. According to the in game comparison, you can also get away with the stock suspension even with the upgraded engine too. I ground it with the stock suspension and engine since they were a waste of xp to me.

It was a good go to tank for a cap or cap reset in Frontline.  I found it rather enjoyable in that mode.  Not so much being bottom tier in 3 5 7.

I ground through it without ever getting the tracks.

Its actually one of the better tier 8 heavies right now once its full upgraded. I mean I could see those struggling with it when they have little to no experience with rear turreted tanks but for those who do have that experience its a decent tank. Only real weaknesses is the hull cheeks(for tier 9 & 10s) while sidescraping/poking and the occasional shot through the mantlet which can be mitigated if you stay moving to skew shots.
