World of Tanks IS-6 – 5 Kills 9,1K Damage
Medals received: Cool-Headed, Steel Wall, High Caliber
The IS-6 is a Soviet tier 8 premium heavy tank.
Plans for this vehicle were drawn up in the construction bureau of the Chelyabinsk Kirov plant from December 1943 to the summer of 1944. Further development and the construction of the first prototype took place at the Uralmash plant. However, the vehicle had no advantages over the other heavy tank designs under consideration, and its armor was seen as inferior to the IS-4 (Object 701), so the IS-6 was not selected for production.
The IS-6 replaced the KV-5 as the Soviet Tier 8 premium heavy tank available through the in-game store from patch 0.7.3. It is also currently available from the gift shop as a bundle with a garage slot all year-round. It is the 2nd (defender) cheapest of the Tier 8 premium heavy tanks. It has good armour and decent mobility, but an inaccurate gun with fairly low penetration.
Once one of the most common premium tanks in the game, the IS-6 has suffered heavily from powercreep as well as the new matchmaking. Even its main advantage, the preferential match making, has been largely nullified by the fact that it will see mostly tier 9 matches, for which it is poorly suited due to its low penetration.
