it's an Is-3, the hemisphere turret and pike upper glacis gives it away

I swear, it's like nobody's played WOT before. The is-3 is VERY hard to mistake for another tank tank. It has a very unique look, you did a great job drawing the dimensions and remembering the little details btw.

Yeah, most of the people are looking at a single little detail and judging the whole thing, missing that it looks nothing like anything else.

Looks like a T-34 has the IS is much smaller in shape.

There's little on here to indicate it's a T-34, and everything visually leading to an IS-3, so I'm not sure how you get to that conclusion.

The T-34 is a Square shaped tank with a long flat backend and sloped front armor, the IS-2 or 3 (forgive me I'm just a newbie) but I do not remember the IS tanks being bulky as they were suppose to be both fast, hard to hit and hard to kill.

I've had a few people trying to tell me what I've painted. WoT is definitely an in depth game, but at the end of the day I think proper research is a little more accurate.

You're being the other "that guy". The IS-2 has a different turret, a narrower chassis, and a flat rather than wedge shaped front. This is an IS-3.

the IS-3 is a little bit smaller, the turret is more flat on the front, the gun is longer.
But it's amazing, nice one
