I have a 20% off coupon and was thinking about using it on the IS-3A.  I already have a T34 and Lowe, and a 100% Soviet heavy tank crew to stick in the IS-3A.  If I like my T34 and Lowe, should I skip getting the IS-3A?  Is there another premium suggestion?


The only other thing I'd use the coupon on is an E25, but I missed my chance to get that years ago.  Or an M56...  Thinking about Tiger 131 too, but then again I already have a T-34/85M.

It is pretty disgusting especially if you can get a toon of them. Remember it has better RoF if you expend the mag verses the regular BIAS-3.

That depends on whether you want an OP t8 tank or not, I don't have one but will purchase one shortly. GL troop.

If you have ever played the IS3 or kept it, you'll likely own the IS3-A.  The tank crews directly transfer from each tank to the other.  Though more sluggish on hills than the IS3 its ROF and bouncy turret make this rig a nightmare hull down.  Hull is typical for a T8 spade-nose regarding bounciness but the sides of the turret aren't as sloped as the IS3 and flanking fire is more of an issue.  Its an insane money-maker with its ROF and the fact it uses APCR as its standard round.  As this is a short range brawler and not a sniper, this isn't a camp and shoot rig, you have to enjoy getting your hands inside their guts in a fight without putting yourself too much in the open.  I recommend the IS3-A if you have the spare cash on hand.  If you enjoy Russian heavies, I can't imagine how you'd be disappointed in this rig.  If youre new to heavy brawlers, this is an excellent rig to get used to that fighting style without going bankrupt during the learning curve.
