I just heard from friend that IS-3A/Fatherland will be getting auto-reloader. True or not? Just from clarification, heard rumours from friends previously that has been 100% false but I was thinking to send ticket to get my Fatherland back if this rumour turns out to be true.

Your friend is making an assumption based on what has happened to the tank on PC; while changes made to tanks do often carryover from PC to Console there is no guarantee that this will be the case.

 

I'd say the odds are in favor of it happening eventually, but I wouldn't want to try to put a timeline on it.

So far all we know from Paingod is that there is a "work ticket" submitted for the IS-3A. Whether it will actually make an appearance or not, your guess is as good as mine.

Personally, I hope it never rmakes it to the game or is significantly nerfed it if does.

If we get it it will be a totally separate Premium vehicle to buy rather than an upgrade to the one people have already. 

I hope to one day be wealthy enough to be considered eccentric rather than just plain nuts.

IS-3AA? Grandfatherland?

No doubt it will come to console in some way, shape or form. Regardless of how they implement it, it’s sure to generate plenty of salt!

Probably something seriously gaudy. Instead of us getting the PC buffs to the Type 59 we instead got the original King Dragon before it was buffed. I just can’t see them doing anything different when they do bring the autoreloading IS-3 over.

The IS3A on pc was buffed, Our lS3A probably will be as well.. As for the Fatherland,  Probably not going to be upgraded. I'm sure its why they intentionally made the Fatherland, To give it away,  And not the lS3A. To WG its 2 seperate vehicles. Fatherland doesn't exist on pc.

I hope they make the change to one of them and leave the other single shot.  That way they truly become two different tanks.

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).

The auto-reloader on the 3A on PC is ridiculous.  For those who don't know, it functions "differently" than the Italian version.  "Differently" is a euphemism for "stupidly broken and OPAF", because instead of having to CHOOSE between burst damage and DPM, you just burst fire EVERYTHING, and THEN turn into a regular tank until you kill everything close to you, and THEN turn back into a 1200 damage burst machine.

 

Balanced.

The Fatherland is the IS-3A. It is right in the tank description when you view the History, Modules, and Armor. It even mentions the 3 shot autoloader.

I kept my Fatherland because it was my very first tank I earned in an Op (the original Op). I wouldn't be disappointed if they gave it the PC buff but I'm fine if they left it as is. It's not a terrible tank currently but there are other IS-3 premium variants that do the job better.

Realistically, WG should just update the 3a/Fatherland to the new firing system, but that would deny them a whole load of Premium tank sales.

 

So the most likely outcome is that they introduce a "new" Premium tank.

 

 BTW OP - Did you sell the Fatherland or trade it in? Because you can't have traded in tanks restored, they are gone for good.
