    Maybe it is possible to send an email to Kubinka Tank Museum and see if they could provide the measurements of the IS-7 they have?



    But that'd mean they'd have real figures and no excuse to not use them

    Do you get to keep them on real server?
    I don't think so, 10x credit and XP boosts. Everyone would have a T10 tank in less than 2 days.

    EDIT:
    After reading their information section on their website. I'd rather not get involved.
    Yeahhhh they're kind of entirely militarily owned and filled with stuff that's still technically classified so...

    let's all just say WG is retarded and stop playing.


    honestly there is better shit coming down the F2P tube, Mechwarrior Online and Planetside 2 for example, these have venerable playerbases who aren't a bunch of fuckheads and developers that aren't pants on head retarded who aren't trying to tell us "Yes, The Saturn V rocket actually is the same length as a Kubelwagen, This is historically accurate"

    Its still retarded, same as it was back then. $52 for a pile of imbalanced shit. Probably wasn't as expensive then but thats irrelevant.

    Give me one reason it's imbalanced.
    It's huge, slow, and it has zero armor. The only thing that's any good about it is the gun, and that's only because of the pen. All "true" tier 8s are easily better. If you're going to bitch about a premium tank, bitch about the Type 59.

    For someone who doesn't have a zillion Tier 9s and 10s with good guns, the Lowe is almost impossible to kill without flanking it and thats a tall order on most maps where they are found in predictable choke points. The Type 59 is just as fucking stupid and I hate it just as much, I only mentioned the Lowe.

    I don't have the BL-9 on the IS-3 yet so I basically can't fight it from the front, where we are usually facing when I come up against one.

    I don't know what you're fuming about. Most Lowe players drive it like an invincible heavy tank and get really pissed when I start frontally penetrating them in a Tiger, IS or T25 AT. They have a huge, glaring weak-spot (the engine) in the god damn front hull that catches them on fire. The only thing they have going is a mean gun (with a 11+ second reload), durable treads and somewhat nice frontal turret armor. Seriously, if you have a gun with over 150mm penetration, you can frontally penetrate. Aim lower than the ridge, dead center, for a good engine hit.

    They have 120mm frontal and 80mm side. It's not amazingly sloped and they're hilariously slow. If you nail the engine, they can't even hope to go beyond 8kph.

    I consistently bounce the front of the Lowe with the 122mm on straight angles and I try my damnedest to shoot the lower hull join which is flat. More than half of the time when I do this it bounces. Upper hull? Always bounces. Similar to experience with Tigers, the front hull plate on the Tiger 1 bounces about 75% of shots I make against it and that is the flattest fucking box tank in the world. I don't really know what to say, maybe I'm bad, maybe I have bad luck.

    I've had shit like that happen too. The M3 lee when faced from the side has practically no slope at all, yet I've had shots bounce off of them with no angling using the D10t.

    I penned a king tiger frontally in my SU-100, lighting him up and stopping him dead to get hit by another tank. I felt bad so I apologised.

    so I didn't get my normal account so I started out with a blank one


    bought a T34, no ammo loaded, went right for the enemy base and tried to capture, took the enemy like 3 minutes to realize there's an unarmed tank in their base ramming an AFK T29 to death

    Defeat
    Battle: Abbey Saturday, March 10, 2012 12:37:03 AM
    Vehicle: IS-3
    Experience received: 63
    Credits received: 5,794

    Base was captured by a T29 and a random medium. They just drove through the middle and capped. Everyone ignored them and the THREE FUCKING WORTHLESS SACKS OF SHIT THAT WERE AFK just fed them experience and credits. I'm going to have an aneurysm. Oh and a Ferdinand managed to shoot a shell down the barrel of my gun, as far as I can tell and damaged it. At least I didn't die while trying to cap the enemy base.
