:rolleyes: Placebo effect? Documentation requested.
It is in the same manner as the German Pzb 784 (r) in game penetrating more than the soviet PTRS even though they are the same weapon.

i can't. i don't have an is2! :(

Is this IS-2 thing a running gag in this forum?

The IS-2 is crap.

His 100mm front turret armor is pretty easy penetratable by the standard 75mm L/43/46/48 tank guns and anti tank gun of the germans.

The 122mm gun is not able to penetrate the front upper hull armor of the Panther (under normal circumstances)

The 75mm gun of the Panther penetrates the same armor like the 122mm gun of the IS-2.

AND the Panther 75mm gun fires round about more than 3 times faster than the 122mm of the IS-2.

If the IS-2 would have an improved front turret armor like they did with the IS-3 it would be a mighty vehicle...
But then i would still prefer the King Tiger. King Tiger is immortal against the 122mm guns of IS-2/3 (at the front). But his 88mm L/71 penetrates more than the 122mm and has still a higher rate of fire.

IS2 was grand and glorious. German biased propaganda claimed what you just said, actuall combat performance was that IS2 was deadly effective exept against the Kingtiger.

Are you sure it was not tripod mounted?:eek:

Also a possibility: do the stats 'stick' to a dropped weapon? If that's the case, maybe you picked up a lvl50 mg34.
I don't think it's even possible to use an enemy fixed MG, if so, why would you use it? It's pointed at your own team. No?
