with all the uproar on the forums re the 252,maybe if you do not already have it the good old is6 is an option,just got mine out again and am pleasantly surprised, much faster reload,similar gun stats,quite nippy, and bounces a [edited]load of hit points,also prints silver,just an option,oh and only sees up to t9,what's not to love.:coin:

The Patriot and Obj 252U along with the AMX Mle 49 pretty much render The IS-6 obsolete.

 

I have loved my IS-6 for a long time, but sorry to say unless it gets some sort of buff it’ll continue to be outclassed. I’ll never suggest someone currently buy the IS-6 over the Obj 252U.

This question is meaningless - IS-6 is weak and that is all

Why would you ever get the IS-6 now the 252u is coming out in 3 days? No point.

Will WG ever have WoT offline like they promised?

IS-6 is still a dangerous tank imho, mine still pumps out plenty of damage firing AP. Might have to flank heavier tanks a bit but isn't that hard to do as it's mobile and fairly low.

Once the IS-6 means a defender it is done. Not enough premium pen to pen the front of a defender.

Shooting flat face to face the IS-6 with APCR (and RNG not trolling it) the 217mm of pen can pen the lower plate. Granted it is a low chance. Still won't see me going face to face in my IS-6 with a Defender.

Why is this even a debate? The IS-6 was powercreeped out of its throne around a year ago.

IS-6 is pretty crap now, honestly.  There’s practically no comparison.

IS 6 still has premium MM. Have had a few really good matches with the IS6 lately.

The key is to not attack it frontally.

IS6 has been power creeped hard (that pen, ouch), but pmm means it has good opportunities to bash up low tiers.

 

Plus I have the black version, so my Soviet crews really enjoy a run out in it!

Head to head the Defender will eat an IS-6 for lunch, but taking the MM into account I would think they should have similar overall performance.

If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send a message to Prof935 (xbox) or dimka935 (ps4).

STA-2 says hi.

Lowe says hi.

Defender and Patriot say hi.

Fatherland and Motherland say hi.

112 says hi.

I think you get the point.

And though it has very little armor, the Panther 8.8 has the gun to hit and pen the weakspots pretty well

No it isn't, it's not even top 10 and it hasn't been for a long time.
