So thats a unique title, isnt it? I bet everyone is wondering what the trio of Stalin could be. A group ofr Russian heavies? Russian hover mediums?
Nope. None of the above. It actually might be the most unexpected group of 3 tanks. Specifically 3 tank destroyers.
Disclaimer: Remodels do not change combat characteristics of vehicles. The below text is flavor only.
ISU-152-2 'Stalin's Hammer'
The bruiser of the trio. The ISU-152-2 combines the fearsome power of the BL-10 152mm gun with improved optics, and the addition of a .50 cal DShK machine gun. The Hammer has seem some intense combat, and the crew is well prepared with provisions and extra ammo. A DP-28 machine gun has been provided for crew protection when dismounted, and the scavenging of 3 logs both provdes the vehicle with a way through muddy terrain and cover at night when asleep.
Drop the hammer on your enemy! Show them the might of the Soviet army!
ISU-130 'Stalin's Fury'
One of the rarest vehicles to see use on the battlefield, the ISU-130 is a step down from the large gun mounted on 'Stalin's Hammer'. What the 'Fury' loses in sheer gun caliber, it gains in rate of fire. While its 130mm S-26 gun sports improved armor piercing ammunition and damage, in addition to the optics improvements enjoyed by the 'Hammer'. Many of the other improvements are carried over from 'Hammer' including the DShK, extra provisions and ammo, the DP-28 and most importantly the logs.
ISU-122S 'Stalin's Might'
The final member of the trio, and the one with the most to prove. While its gun is not as big as its older brothers, and its damage is less; it makes up for this in sheer rate of fire. 'Stalin's Might' includes all of the previous improvements that are on the ISU-152-2 and ISU-130, with a faster firing gun. Throw enough shots downrange, and you'll eventually do some damage.
The ISU-122S is the final member of the trio, and the one that, consequently, required the least amount of work. I repaired the fenders, and added the improved optics and provisions on the engine deck and I was pretty much done.
So there you have it. The Trio of Stalin: 'Hammer', 'Fury' and 'Might'. An ISU for everybody.
The remodels are already up int he Remodles menu above. So thats that. Most every thing else is going well. Other remodels are going well.
Oh! Im considering switching all of my remodels over to the .wotmod format to make installation easier. Im interested in knowing if people want this so if you could fill out this survey that would be great!
Thats all for now! (And if anyone from WG actually reads this site... Im serious... I really want the ISU-130. Please?)
Take care guys!
