Coventry, West Midlands, the UK. It's one big roundabout
I have the IS with either 100mm or 122mm guns available. Both of them suck against a bit heavier tanks and I had a lot of wasted shots against Panthers, TigersII and even KV-3s. Moreover I found the 122mm gun extremely incaccurate (once it happened I missed a KV-3 that was positioned about 100m away) so I decided to switch back for the 100mm as it has almost twice bigger rate of fire.
What should I do with my KV-3 and its 100% trained crew? It would be a big loss to waste it.
Moreover I'm confused if I should waste experience in the future and buy upgraded tracks and bigger engine for the IS or go directly for IS-3? It costs 80k+ experience so it will take very long time before I will be able to afford it.
I found the IS more manoeuverable than the KV-3 and, surprisingly, the Löwe.
Now I have KV13 great medium tank 10000x times better than T43 in every way! Now Iam going to IS and I have the same qestion should I get IS to elite or run for IS3? Sell KV3 and transfer the crew to other russian tank.
sure, if the objective is to die quicly its a great tactic
actually not, if a whole team forms a block and keeps driving untill they reach the others base, it is a certain victory, but it can't be used on all maps, it is the best tactic to win I don't recall it's name, the map with the isle in the middle, line everyboddy up, under cover of the town, and charge to cap
It was for me a pain to grind trough, but postwagon is one of the best tanks of it's tier. It can mount a decent guns and it has very good mobility. 57mm is probably the best gun it can have, it has fairly low damage, but it's accurate, very rapid firing and fairly good penetration. From tactical point of view T-28 isn't supposed to played as medium tank, as it's paper thin armor cannot handle basically any punishment, play it as oversized scout or TD. Hide, ambush and make a brave retreat.
