The English German

Back when I said the IS-3 wasn't OP.

Recommended Posts

So, are we speaking with The English German, or is this Katze? You attempt to necro a topic from 3 years ago, and it just so happens your "friend" made this thread: http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/610612-when-you-dare-to-disagree-with-purple-players-on-the-wotlab-forums/

 

You weren't downvoted for saying the IS-3 isn't OP, those were from you saying the KV-5 and WZ-111 had more armor.

 

And here, have some more downvotes for making this idiotic thread, which should've been deleted when you were still typing it up.

Yes I agree, I was being petty.

IS3 isn't so popular just because of armour.  

It has good HP/T, track traverse, reverse, top speed, and terrain resistances for a heavy tank, especially tier 8. This allows it to be flexible. The gun also makes it extremely useful, being so much more reliable than predecessor 122mm guns. It is also fairly small, and sadly, the camo rating on an IS3 is almost as good as fat mediums like E Fifty or Fatton. 

The armour, you have it unfairly angled not taking into account its strengths but instead highlighting its weakness. And the turret roof isn't that easy to hit too. Compared to shit turrets like Tiger ll or VK45A or KV4? The pike shape can be advantageous or disadvantageous. Take another tank like T32 or Somua or Caern. You angle them that way, and they are instead shot through the sides, via the front road wheel. You try that on IS3, and the armour is 15mm better than Caern or T32, and double that for Somua. IS3 front armour is not strong. It is troll, it is highly dependent on angles met. Same goes for WZ111, another pike shape, and yes WZ111 front armour is slightly stronger, it also has larger cupolas sticking out, whereas IS3 smoothly blend into the turret. WZ111 also has a larger, flatter lower hull, effectively twenty mm less than IS3, despite IS3 being thinner. WZ111 also has less side armour in comparison. Not to mention horrid 186 pen and 25O HEAT vs sensible pen.  KV5 is just a piece of shit, an HP pinata to swing at with a stick

WZ111 isn't bad, it has speed like IS3, small size like IS3, troll armour like IS3, even adds sensible view distance  -  it is just the gun is incapable of doing IS3 shit. And guns are important for heavy tanks.  By the way, no one says IS3 is over powered. It is strong yes, but not that that that that strong.

But in perspective tier 8 heavy tanks.....T32 has weaker hull than IS3. King Tiger and VK45A, Caern have stronger upper hull, but weaker and larger lower hull to shoot at. Even the lumbering  ''''''super heavy''''' KV4 has less effective armour than an IS3. So you got VK.1(P) and oho that have more, and boy do they trade alot of shit for that armour. IS3 just combines so many nice things in a sensible package. 

I like the way you attempt  to laden wotlabs as villains at the Tanks Forums. Nice.  outside of that though, your post is pretty incomplete.
