Hello warriors,

as was published earlier, the IS-5 heavy tank will be obtainable only via Clanwars. Let's have a look then at what 99 percent of players will be missing.

The IS-5 is a heavy tank with full (unlimited matchmaking). It is equipped with its historical 122mm D-25T gun. In order to make the gun viable on higher tiers, it was equipped with post-war subcaliber shells with fake penetration (in real life, this shell had somewhere around 350-400mm of penetration). It is fast, well armored and those who tested it on RU server report that on lower tiers it is almost overpowered.
