Soviet Union in the game World of Tanks. The first IS tank to have the pike-nose design, this tank is definitively one of the most popular tier 8 tanks. This tank is one of the most heavily armed tier 8's there are, combining a thick, sloped turret and sloped armor, this tank can also make a decent top speed. Playing this tank, use it as a battering ram, smashing through enemy lines with supporting tanks. Fighting this tank, always try to outflank it or rush it with allies. If forced to fight frontally, try to aim for the pike-nose at a flat angle as this is one of the only frontal weakspots.
