The IS-3 in War Thunder was once the King of heavy tanks. Now, it will face cold war era tanks that can easily penetrate its thick well designed armour.
The IS-3 is still a contender, however. In a full downtier, there aren’t many tanks that can punch through its armour. At this battle rating you’ll face WW2 vehicles that don’t really stand a chance against you.
The 122mm cannon on the IS-3 is still enough to banish most enemy tanks with ease which leaves the only real weakness of the IS-3 being its reload speed at 20 seconds.
Overall, this is just the classic heavy tank problem. Great in downtiers but considerably challenging in uptiers! 🙂
