Is there any difference between the ISU 130 they are giving away and the HMH version other than the perma camo on the HMH? I assumed someone out there has already done the work. I have the Blitzen, I have the Honor T28, I have the HMH ISU 130. Just wondering if I need to push myself on this op or if it is a waste of my time. Thanks!

It's just the unskinned version. That's all.

...I don't know what to put here now...

Didn't the HMH have the sandbags that counted has 1mm extra armor?!

 

I think besides the paintjob that was it...

Yeah. I don't know how much they count for, though. 20mm is the number I've seen thrown around, but I've never confirmed it myself and I don't want to distribute misinformation. Still, that kind of thing only makes a difference on heavily armored tanks like, say, the M4 mle 49. The sandbags on the ISU-130 aren't really in a position where they'd be neutralizing HEAT shells, so the advantage is purely aesthetic.

It's a really good tank despite what people say, but if you already have the HMH version, then it's probably not worth going for it.

Even if they did count for any armor they are on top of the tank and only in a very small area and would serve no purpose. There is no difference between the tanks and unfortunately they will still expect you to buy another one if you would like to buy the other tank destroyers in the tank destroyers trio bundle.

I don't play my HMH ISU-130 enough to justify a "clone", although that big gun makes it more like direct fire Arty.

Spaced armor on the top of the tank would be nice for arty

Its the same but its a different tank in regards the game. So you can earn it and sell it or your HMH version.

For my gamestyle, that tank is out of range. I'll probably make a go for the T-28, which I missed from the store last time it was on sale on the cheap bundle, even if it's not the Honor.

But the ISU-130 is definetely out of reach for me.

215 pen on a tier 8 td doesnt sound too fun. Are there any owners who can tell me different?

I agree. Btw, when this TD initially came out, I don't recall many singing its praises.

​I was wondering if it had some other redeeming features but unless I missed something I cant see anything in its stats that suggest it. I could work with pen at tier 10 if it was e25 fast and stealthy but it looks sluggish with ok camo

Yeah, I can't see the point in having this TD either. Especially with the new battlefield environment before us, not to mention the newly introduced VK 100Ps and Mauschens running amok. No thanks.

I will get it, play a few battles in it, and sell it for silver. 100%.

With 187 penn premium round. Tank is garbage, I hate mine, want it?  Tier 8 tank that sees tier 10s with a tier 6 gun. Its very similar to the Box Tank gun with a little more penn I think. It also has zero gun traverse to the left so hitting things on the move is not so easy.
