Ever wondered if Wargaming was going to introduce the IS-M, a rear turret version of the famous IS? Well, today Wargaming just announced a brand new rear turret branch is coming to Supertest with three new vehicles: IS-M, Object 705 and Object 705A.
Armour is the key feature of these three new vehicles: steel monsters with mean guns, with sufficient penetration and one-time damage above the average. Mobility isn’t their strength, but these vehicles were designed to take heavy punishment while defending an area, so flanking your enemies isn’t an option.
The first tank to enter Supertest will be the Tier VIII: IS-M. This vehicle was a modernized version of the Soviet heavy tank IS-2. In the game, this will be a fairly simple tank to play with.
