How would you compare the IS7, WZ-5A and 113?
It seems the 5A is best? Why?

I own 5A and the IS-7. 5A sure has better gun(HEAT over APCR)and mobility, but I like the IS better for randoms. The armor is much more reliable, which means the tank has good stopping power, which the 5A quite doesnt have imo.
TL;DR: IS-7 for randoms, 5A for organized stuff generally. Though for example the IS shits on 5A in Mines middle fights.
I’ve had the IS-7 for ages and just bought the 5A and 113 the morning the On Track started.
The 5A is so comfortable to play with -7 degrees of gun depression on that platform. My Object 260 is going to start collecting dust with -5 gun depression on a much taller platform with less agility in a brawl and much lower DPM.
I really enjoy playing the 113, but agree with @Kolni in regards to the superiority of the 430U in pubs. It stacks the matchmaker since you aren’t paired with another heavy, but can pretty much act like one when hull down. I haven’t compared extensively, but it feels like the 430U aims much more effectively than the 113 despite having worse final accuracy.
Overall, all 3 have their merits when compared in isolation. If you are only getting one for the On Track, then I would go with the 5A. The 113 isn’t all that compelling unless you are a long way from the 430U or play CW.
