  1. Lol, remember when I laughed at idiots who thought the IS3a would have an actual autoloader and not just faster reload system… Who is the idiot now :-S


  2. Those reload times will cause a lot of trouble. Why swap them around? Why can’t the Italian tanks can have the same? Having the first shell reload the fastest is a game changer.


  3. So its a auto-reloaded loader then?
    like the ‘unique’ Italian MT auto reloading system

    how did Russia get this from the Italians I wonder invade Italy maybe, oh wait its WOT lets just ‘make it all up’ for laughs da comrade … more Vodka da! some Coke maybe the hookers come soon wink! paid for by WOT junkies

  4. I really hope WG isn’t going to release it this way because with the current proposed loading system there is no drawback to it unlike the other autoloaders.


      1. So? You can still play with it as a regular tank if you run out of shells in the clip like nothing have happened unlike other autoloader and autoreloader tanks.

        1. No, you can’t really, since you’ll be stuck with progressively longer reload for a single shot. You’re not going to clip enemies all the time.


          1. Yes you can. The autoreloader on the IS-3A is the inverted version of the one that can be found on the Italian tanks, so the first shell will be loaded into the clip the fastest.

            1. Yes, and you can’t stop loading shells. So you have to always shoot the entire clip or just play like a normal tank (which kinda defeats the point of the autoloader). I dunno, they’re just testing it and they said that most likely IS-3A won’t get this mechanic at all, it’s for a different tank.


              1. Do you even try to comprehend what has been said?

                Let me spell it out for you:

                1 ) You have no drawback compared to other heavy tanks. If you empty your whole clip you can still reload a single shell and fire it as soon as it has been loaded. And on top of that your single shell reload will take only as much as other heavy tanks with 390 alpha.

                2 ) You have autoreloader and if you give it enough time you can have up to 3 shells in it. Progressively longer reload times do not matter, because look at point 1. On the other hand there is enough in gme situations when you will have enough spare timeto reload full clip, for example when you are at the start of the battle and you reload on your way to the enemy, or during the battle when you are not engaged in combat and you are relocating. And with 3 or even 2 shells in the clip and 3 seconds of interclip reload you can bring a devastating firepower to the engagement.

                3 ) The chassie is a fucking IS-3, one of the most retard proof armour layouts in the game, combined with decent mobility.

  5. I get that this isn’t a pref mm tank and it has to face tier X tanks, but it would be nice the WZ111/112/etc had about 200 pen instead of getting bumped to 182.


  6. this thing needs 5 second intra clip, dispersion values worse than IS_3 and 1400 middle shell DPM or lower. there is no way to balance this thing. bad idea.


  7. Current IS 3A is worthless, it would be nice to get a buff. Ridiculous OP though? How about a 100mm auto reload gun? That would be more in line with T8.


  8. This and the t50-2 will be worth buying. screw the kanonen 105.
    German still gets low roll and magic bounce. NEVER EVER aim at a russian tank when in a german.

    When in a russian tank ALWAYS aim at a german, get high roll, lower chance of bounce, da!.
