At least today it is. Played 2 games so far where very few shots that I fired penned an enemy tank. Didn't really matter if it was frontal or even side shots. Very unimpressed with it and that horrible load time!

Because he played it and did not do well, it must be garbage?

Its underpowered neds buff, preferably 60 top speed with 35 p/wr

be sure it also has 550 alpha with 278 pen, and of course 550 hecr pen (all the good sides of heat and apcr, with none of the down sides) for the skilled players.

I did day THAT game, for those that can comprehend what is written. Now then I could not reliably pen the lower plate of an E75 and forget the T28 Proto. Just bounce after bounce. And the load time really stinks.

Sounds like OPERATOR ERROR

Some might have been confused by your thread title, "IS-3A Is Total Garbage!" Exclamation point and everything.

I guess "I played bad in the IS-3A two battles in a row" won't get the clicks.

Woah, turns out tanks with armour are hard to penetrate frontally! And it's almost as though a IS-3 with a 3 shot autoloader that reloads 1 shell at a time should have a long reload... Wacky

It has mediocre to bad pen (though the HEAT is kinda nice) as well as terrible accuracy and gun handling. You really need to work to make the gun behave.

I get what you're saying, but please tell me what tier 8 tank (other than the OP prems which I don't know if they can or not) can reliably penetrate the E75/s lower plate???

Buy "work" you mean "aim?"

 

Sounds like user error.

So u gambled for a tank without looking at the stats? tanks gg clearly says 0.44, clearly is a very trollish gun, maybe check instead of crying on forums?

>Trying to pen an E75 lower plate with 221 APCR

 

Against APCR, without any sideways angling the E75's lower plate is ~245mm, i.e a ~25% chance for you to pen in an IS-3A.

 

The IS-3A is one of the strongest tier 8 tanks in the game, the issue here is the person who is driving the tank, not the tank itself.

Run food and only shoot premium ammo. Only way to play the IS-3A. Or you can shoot HE and only do 90 damage for an entire game like the genius player on my team yesterday did with it. I'm sure he thinks the tank is garbage too. Wait, I thought this was so OP and wargaming broke game stupid gold spammers everyone elses fault but mine spot team idiot!

Were you using HEAT?  27O HEAT should be going through E75 lower hull.  HlTTlNG it there, is a different story.  lS3As goals and 'to-do' list, penetrating and killing E75s aren't high up there on the list. Think of it as an extreme close range tussle tank. lS3A hates any conflict over two hundred (m)  lt is no longer an old lS3, because of the potent autoloader it becomes an ambusher that must pick its targets. Play like Somua, the two are comparable. 

 

T28 Proto has among the best lower hulls in the game. ln perspective, it has a tougher lower hull than Maus tank. lt is not a weakness to seek. Armour models are readily avaialble. The actual hull, if using 27O HEAT, is a clear weakness, just shoot it straight into the body. T28 Proto, also has among the weakest available side armour, just approach it better than 7O' off angle, and it is an easy road wheel track, and side armour damaging hit. 51mm is virtually useless as side amrour. Even if you take and eat four hundred damage from a 12cm hit, you get to spank it back 39O multiple times because of an autoloader, nor is T28 Proto a fast enoguh tank to make any sort of getaway. You need to know the tanks you play. 

 

l do not know how else to describe it. Thats as informative as it gets. As tactful and comprehensive it gets.

yes 221 APCR pen is subpar unless you are in someones face and even then is int great

this days most tier 8 tanks should have around 230 pen

Only 90 damage with 122 mm HE?  He needs to work on his HE kunfu.
