The Magic Shot!


So if you read my recent papers on the AMX 50 Foch (155) and the Object 263 ”Yolo Wagon”, you will be aware of my feelings toward the IS-7.

I hate the thing.

Nevertheless, I just bought one on my press account (Yes, that means I’ve never actually driven an IS-7, ever), but it’s not for the reason you may think. I have not sold out.

This is the reason:


If you’re not seeing what I’m seeing, according to Armour I spector, it should be possible to penetrate the viewport of an IS-7, frontally, for 1200 damage with a High Explosive round from a Foch (155).

So being a proud owner of a press account and two ipads, naturally I had to try it. I promise the press account IS-7 will only ever be used for target practice.

Anyway, so I started up an open training room and went at it. I figured it’s not every day you get to take some free shots at a maxed out IS-7, and I had a couple of people join in.

Sadly, I didn’t manage the ”Magic Shot”, but I had some fun trying, and of course I won’t rest until this issue is resolved. In the mean time, please enjoy 12 minutes of violence against defenseless dam OP Russian biased Heavy tanks:



If anyone else manages the ”Magic Shot”; hitting an IS-7 viewport for full HE damage, then I would love to see it.

Please let me know, and/or stay tuned!

  1. I think the IS-7 Viewport is a bug in Armor Inspector that has been long time “fixed” in the game for … balance reasons, you know.
