Today we launch the closed Supertest for the IS-2-II, a Tier VIII Soviet heavy.

The first vehicle in the new two-barreled tank branch, the IS-2-II has several main armament options. Stats-wise, a couple of 100-mm guns is the best. The average damage dealt by each is 300 points; the armor penetration is 221 mm with a basic round and 256 mm with a special one. The gun dispersion equals 0.4 m per 100 m, and the aiming time is 2.8 seconds, with decent stabilization.

The frontal hull armor of the IS-2-II is up to 110 mm thick. The turret protection is much better, with up to 235 mm at the front. To survive and excel in combat, you will have to position this tank right, making the most out of its turret armor and gun depression of –7 degrees. The overall HP pool of the IS-2-II is 1,500 points.

The dynamics of the vehicle is what you would expect from a heavy. The top speed is 34 km/h, with a specific power of 14 hp per ton, and the hull traverse speed is 30 degrees per second. The view range is 350 m.

By its stats, the IS-2-II is a classic heavy, and it’s much like the majority of this class in terms of gameplay. Yet its unusual armament of coupled guns makes a difference here, enabling this tank to dish out a lot of damage in one thunderous salvo.

If this just entered supertest does that mean 1.7 is going to be the most useless patch ever?

Really odd WG even labeled 1.7 as a patch at all. I bet it's just going to be the update that brings the Christmas event and new content for loot boxes. Not a true patch.

Yikes, so if this is just hitting supertest now, then 1.7 is going to have even less stuff in it?

I rarely complain about WoT. I've really enjoyed this game over the years. And I still will after these come out. But honestly, I thought this was a joke when someone first mentioned the double-barreled tanks in our clan.

I get that the game isn't a simulator, but these are so ludicrous. It doesn't make sense in a simulator or an arcade game and just makes me cringe every time I see one. Double-barreled tanks belong in Hammer's Slammers or some off the wall military sci-fi game, not 20th century WoT. And ultimately, what purpose do they serve?

Work on maps and vehicle skins, not gimmicky tanks, please.

How about putting the one real tank in this new tree in as a clan wars reward tank instead of making up an entire tree of whole cloth to "fit" it at tier 10?  Oh wait, I forgot.  Only American tree lines are allowed to get screwed by having their top tier tank put in as a clan wars vehicle.  *looks at T95 medium tank line*  *looks at M60 tank line*.
