Key features of IS tank WoT
IS 1 model stands for a Soviet heavy tank of the 7th level. It has good dynamics during maneuvers, but lacks a decent armor. Thanks to powerful ammunition and equipment given by default, a IS WoT type serve in a good way for battles at short and medium ranges.
But at long distances IS efficiency drops because of weak parameters of visibility, low accuracy and necessity of regular repairs. A IS World of Tanks type stands for a predecessor of much heavier tanks IS-3 and IS-M.
The IS WoT type is an improved version of KV-85. Its mobility and guns belong to the same level, but the IS vehicle has 120-mm sheets on a frontal part, and their changed angles of inclination as compared to KV-85 and KV-3.
D-25T guns installed by default on IS WoT type may cause a great damage to different tanks, but armor penetration still remains pretty low. Also, you may appear in many situations when you need to shoot at weak zones of any enemy’s tank and this IS type won’t do for such purpose.
The weight of IS type allows ramming your enemies whose tanks are leveled up to the 8th position. Do not even try to ram your opponents if their machines are improved to the 9th or 10th rank.
This type of WoT IS vehicle works greatly for swift attacks, serving as the leader of a squad, but you should seek a shelter at any price.
At any price you must avoid head attacks with Tigers and T29 tanks. Thanks to decent speed and maneuverability, a IS vehicle is great for combination with CT series.

How to play with the IS WoT?
If you have to meet with the enemy from the front, then you are to carefully. The frontal armor is most protected place and percentage of penetration is very low. You need to hit the lower armored vehicle to win a battle.
If you have not many health points and an upgraded armor penetration of your top gun, then you may try to shoot and break an enemy's main gun. But after a powerful attack, the IS is useless for shooting during a certain time period, that is why go to the closest shelter.
Without repairing an upgrade, guns of World of Tanks IS will lose accuracy as well as speed of recharging. Repaired guns can make 2 shots opposite to 1 shot of your opponent.
If you want to damage any heavy tank, then you may shoot an engine compartment or the side of its tower where ammunition is located. Precise shots may significantly damage your opponent.
If you see a rival’s tank is moving to your back, then boldly shoot at its engine or in the back of tank’s tower (marked with pink color). In such way it’s possible to eliminate the opponent’s commander. If the commander is disabled, then a range of detection of vehicles will significantly reduce.
Also keep in mind that the range of its view doesn’t allow observing actions of distant enemies and allies on the map.
