Howdy Boom Jockeys!

 

Whether you are playing the mode for fun, glory, or free stuff. The IS-2 Shielded is the ultimate defense against the anti-tank rounds your enemies will launch at you. 

 

 

Just a friendly reminder that the Road to Berlin will be closing in two days (17May). You can still purchase it in-game for 6000 gold if you are interested in adding this tank to your collection.

Thanks for the event! It was rather frustrating at times, but all things considered, it was one of the easier grinds that I've done in this game; took me about 6 days to get the tank,and another 2 to get the bounty equipment.

I actually enjoyed the event (early considering all things) Berlin Map was fun ...and doing the missions with Clan mates was fun.

Event is ok at best, considering all the dumb decisions to include arty, arty circles and the x2 only available with the Berlin map, that is totally RNG based. 

 

Also, the "Do Screens Work in the Game?" is a lie: cant help but the notice that the SU-152 in the GIF aimed like a russian potato for the side of the turret, or the angled side of the upper plate. Either way, just shows the ineptitude of the enemy player, not that the tank is invincible. It wont stop a half-a$$ aimed shot on any flat surface behind a screen door. 

:sceptic:

This isn't a review, I call misleading title!

Quote "Based on its characteristics, the IS-2 shielded is similar to the researchable IS Tech Tree tank, although its mobility is somewhat inferior due to weight of the screens".........Why what are they made of ??

Several German vehicles are equipped with screens as well.  Will they get the same benefits or are screens just a cosmetic thing unless the vehicle is Soviet?

The screens were never intended to stop or pre-detonate tank-fired HEAT in ANY case.

 

They were intended to provide that "protection" versus man-portable anti-tank shaped-charged warheads, grenades, and molotovs, which were far more prevalent than tank-fired HEAT, especially so in dense urban environments. Just by calculating the Mass-times-Velocity of tank-fired HEAT, there was NO WAY these stupid screens would stop or delay tank-fired HEAT of any bore-size.


Expecting them to reduce the effect of tank-fired HEAT of any bore-size is unrealistic, ahistorical, foolish, and gamer trash.


Where the IS-2S is concerned, this model represents the field-application of scrounged-up bedsprings for this purpose, first allowed from right-around the middle of the battle for the city of Budapest. If you bother to Search for images from the battle for Vienna, you will find photographs of bedsprings applied to T34/85s and IS-2s, and Lend-Lease Shermans.

 

Giving the screens depicted on the IS-2S any protective benefit versus tank-fired HEAT is just stupid.


NEVER take your history from World of Tanks.

Trust me, I do understand.  More of a WW2 Pacific Theatre buff, unless we are typing about Patton.  My question was directed at the use of screens, not the accuracy of the vehicle.  If we were going by accuracy, there would be far fewer vehicle, ship, and warplane choices then we have now.  With rare exceptions, accuracy has been a thing of the past for quite some time across the WG world. Now it is only a question of which drunken bar napkin drawing they are going to use for the next money grabber.

+1 for that, though my comments were not directed at you specifically.

Ending mid-weekend was a surprise.  I did not re-read the fine print.  My fault, but exceptions should be communicated well rather than buried in fine print. A reminder would have helped.

Also, if anyone knows how to buy the IS-2s with gold discount at this time, please advise.
