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!
