Don’t. The armor used to be good, but power creep ruined it. Its still got the D-25t which is terrible. Much better off getting something like a 112 or Defender.

 I still like the lS-6. Go look at Nerfbarometer see how its perfoming in general. WOTINFO.net  It's ranked #8 out of what 40ish tier 8 premium heavies. Thats not bad, But it means there is 7, Ranked better.

IS-6 in its current state = A waste of 12,000 gold. Would even be a waste at like 8-10k gold too. 

 

There are a plethora of options at tier VIII that are a better option....heavy tank or not.

It's amazing, but there are *more* amazing tanks at tier 8.

It’s balanced therefore it sucks :facepalm:
I used to have my stats here but I’d rather make people work to see how crap I am instead.

It’s outclassed even with the PMM benefit. I hardly ever see them in a tier VIII match. It was balanced but now UP. 

 

It doesn’t even need much to make it decent again. Maybe buff APCR from 217 to 225 pen. It got a buff on PC to 186 AP and 225 APCR, so it’s not really off base. 

 

Honestly if I’m looking to buy a tier VIII Russian heavy, I’d rather spend less gold on a 252U than more gold for the IS-6. You literally have to do less work in a 252U in a tier X match than an IS-6 in a tier IX game.

Which is exactly what I said. It is balanced therefore it sucks due to so many over performers at tier 8 such as the tank you just described.

Yea i don't think that can possibly be accurate. imo the IS-6 has to be one of the worst, power crept Tier VIII premium in the game. The only thing it was good for was Island race BEFORE wargaming fixed the silver earning bug.

It should have the same gun and everything as the 252. The IS-6 is the Object 253 and then we have the 252/252U. The only difference was one had an electric transmission, like the German E series tanks, and one had a normal transmission. Everything else was the same. But, WG Screwed that one up.

Hydra is-6 has the gun from the Obj 252U.

Better armor too, better turret rotation, better radio, better speed and 75% money saving bonus which allows it to improve performance a little more with consumables. The IS6 has better DPM and better accuracy. The Hydra cannot engage enemies over a long distance because of its precision and the excessively slow aiming time ... it is its biggest weak point, once the buddies are dead it cannot do anything against several distant enemy. Even if he sees them, he cannot touch them.

Noice. It's my fav tier 8 premium.

 

Just remember to utilize that awesome dpm and keep the gun shooting as much as possible, you can get some crazy damage fairly quick in it.
