I'm not sure I get the hate for the Chinese IS-2.  I don't have it, but I've played the Russian tech tree IS and I have the IS-2 Berlin premium, and checking the stats I don't see much difference between them and the Chinese version.

The turrets are identical, the Chinese one has a 90mm sloped IS-2-style UFP, instead of the IS's 120mm UFP which is split into a heavily sloped lower half and a near-vertical, KV-style upper half, so that really seems more like a benefit to the IS-2, and really nobody plays the IS/IS-2 for the armor anyway; it's about decent mobility plus a boomstick.

The only other issue is that it has a 3kph higher top speed but a weaker engine, so climbing hills is a bit slower I'd guess.

In exchange for a small improvement (the UFP) and a small nerf (engine) you get 33 more mm of premium pen.

Almost everything else is identical, and I have a lot of fun with my IS-2 Berlin.
