I picked this up this past weekend during the 15% off sale, after the 110 and WZ-111 model 1-4, I honestly wasn't expecting much. I'm not going to call it the new T57, but I was pleasantly surprised by a number of factors. Good 1) It's quite quick. The IS-7 has 15.4 HP/ton, but due to garbage terrain resistance (1.3/1.8/3.1), is far more sluggish than one would think. The 113 not only has 16.67 HP/ton, it also gets 1.3/1.4/2.7 terrain values. You can hit your top speed of 50kph and cruise there on a lot of terrain, unlike the IS-7 which bogs down to ~35kph on Malinvoka field. 2) The gun is a virtual copy of the IS-4's, but it has several small improvements. It fires 10% faster, is 0.02 more accurate, and aims in 2.7 seconds instead of 2.9. It does lose 11mm of AP penetration, but I'm not finding that to be a real issue. 3) The depression isn't nearly as crippling as I'd though it would be. Yes, at -4° it is the worst of the tier 10 heavies, but it's also only 1° worse than the T-62A, T-54, or IS-3, so if you know how to work with those vehicles you should be set. There will be sections of maps closed to you, but workarounds usually exist. 4) It's still so uncommon nobody has the slightest idea what to do with you. Your armor is 120mm at at least 65°, I think it's more like 68°, so with only a little wrangling autobounce can be achieved, unless you're at close range where the height of other vehicles gives them an angle advantage. Your line of sight thickness is something like 2.7x nominal, or ~320mm. 5) Spaced armor covers much of the side sponsons, and those parts that aren't are sloped to a good degree. Reverse angling works pretty well. Bad 1) The depression is -4°. 2) Armor has poor nominal thickness, anyone who can get an advantageous angle on you, or HE splash, is going to hurt. A lot. 3) Longer than an articulated bus, but without the segmentation to help you go around corners. Okay, so that's some exaggeration, but I'm pretty sure it's only a little bit shorter lengthwise than an E-100. 4) Being tiny makes it easy to hide, but can make it difficult to fire over things other tanks take for granted. Things I found amusing 1) It's about three feet tall. 2) It looks like a Type 59 had a baby with a stretch limo. Now, I don't think it'll have much place in organized fights, but I have enjoyed the 10 matches I've played thus far. It plays wildly differently from its predecessors, though, so beware. TL;DR: Zippy, quirky, fun if you're into that kind of thing, but definitely not for everyone or CW.
