If I remember correctly the IS6 received a buff on PC, I’d really like to see that here. The armor is still workable, I think it really needs a penetration and accuracy buff to deal with the gradual power creep of newer Tier 8 and 9 vehicles.

Hopefully, it definitely needs penetration and gun handling buff.

On the Pc it recieved a buff of  175>186 standard  round and 217>225 on premium  , so it would give it a bit more competitive edge against it's newer tier 8 Russian heavy counterparts.

 

There is no sign of it being buffed at the moment as it is still performing reasonably well :confused:

Old Premiums dont get a Buff on console. They Buff him and give him a new skin and sell it as a new Tank. 

Thanks to WarGaming anti-EU attitude and disgusting deleting of non-English speaking communities ,,I,,

If you want to play a buffed is6.  Play the ism on its base package.  Plays very similar imo.  The is6 is a good tank just shoot premium out of it and still make silver.  One if my favorites.

If you have a tank bought you want to play it, but not being the sheep most of the time.....

The gun handling and pen has always been atrocious...just more so in comparison lately.  At least it has preferred match making...but then, it should, because it’s really a Tier VII masquerading as a Tier VIII.

Yeah, poor guy really got power crept. :(

 

I used to play mine a lot way back in the day, years ago. Can't remember the last time I played it, as I have many vastly superior premium tanks these days. In the current game it is generally pretty lacking. Could definitely use a little love.

Really needs some love.

Has that soft turret roof, which used to be the weakspot when its armour was troll. Now pretty much everyone and their infirm aunt can pen you everywhere frontally, whilst even with APCR loaded you have very little chance of hurting a defender frontally.

 

You're forced to hang back a bit and use slopes to increase your frontal armour and mitigate your soft spot, and take opportune shots at tank sides.

Not exactly the roll of a brawling soviet heavy.
