Default Russian tanks and you

The IS-3 was nearly impossible to kill in a multiplayer match last night. I had a Tiger and King Tiger shooting at it for well over 20 minutes when it finally fell to one shot from a Sturm. Is there any tank guides out there? I seemed to be getting one shotted for a destroyed gun in my last game.

IS-3s has very good sloping armor. Which makes em hard nut to crack.
But thier gun is not as good as a King Tigers and it takes forever to relode it.

At maxsimum ranges a fight vs IS-3 and King tiger will take forever. But even if you drive a little closer with the King tiger you got a better chance of winning. Since your gun has better armor penetration and KT has slightly better frontal armor.

Don't really have a guide. But if you don't want to learn the hard way online.
You can always try test firing the tanks against eachother in the map editor if you want to see what the effective ranges are etc...

Some tanks for example got weakspots where its always good to aim.

I excessively use the tactic of sneaking infantry up and using AT grenades while having the tank distracted buy AT guns or another tank...

Default One cool tactic...

I use this often...

Send in any infantry near the tank to scare it and make it try and attack your men at close range...

Get the IS3 to turn 180 degrees from your opposing tank (waiting to fire)... if the infantry distract it well enough.. you can get some great hits (and even charge the IS with your AT/Tanks) and pierce the rear turret which seems to be much easier to take out. Use your machine guns to damage the treads between AT rounds... If your infantry have AT grenades then this will really help... but rear turret shots are pretty good enough to damage it... If using direct control... aim at the very bottom of the turret right near the gap to the body base... Like opening a can of tuna!

the better question is... what make a IS-3 in the WW2? So the German King Tiger or Jagdtiger never meet an IS-3... It will be great, when the german units get a Tank like the "Maus" or so... I see, that all country´s got a Prototyp... except Germany... well, its for the fairness, but its a little bit unrealistic to fight again tanks from other age´s...

Yes true the prototypes might not really belong in a realistic ww2 game.
But i still think its better then in CoH where they made allied tanks better so they atleast have a chance vs Axis armor.
Factions like Japan would't work without prototype models.

Germany gets no prototypes because even thier tanks that saw combat was better then most of the allied prototype tanks.
Even tho i think Maus looks impressive, i don't think it would help making the game more fun.
Personaly i think all the midd game unit battles are more fun then late game King tigers vs IS-3s etc...

I wish they would balance the sides with unit cost instead of unrealistic prototype tanks..A Panther or Tiger 1 should totally dominate Shermans, but cost 5 times or more as much. KTs should be very very expensive. Most online battles turn into proto-super tank slugging matches.
