How should I play the Isu-152? Should it be played as a support tank, sniper, or ambush tank?

Using BL-10 gun

Sniper ambush IMO. Keep the enemy at an arms length and soften up tanks for your heavies or meds to kill. Alternatively use the 560+ minimum damage roll to secure kills that 105-122mm armed tanks can't reliably kill in one shot.

If you aren't very experienced yet, play it at range. Despite having pretty lousy accuracy, 286 pen means you'll go straight through the front of almost anything in your battle tier.

 

If you are good at reading you opponents and timing your shots, you can play it near the front lines as a peek-a-boom tank. Mind you you should only try this if you can really read your opponents as you armor is trash (minus the impenetrable mantlet). This is good practice especially for the Obj. 268 since that tank doesn't perform that well at range.


Frequents higher tiers, because I hate tractors armed with high-caliber rifles.

Plays a mix of well, everything.

I would recommend you to get the Calibrated Shells with the BL-10, you will get 300mm of pen on AP which makes this gun the most powerful gun of tier 8
Use also the provisions (combat rations+milk) to drop your reload to ~13s, that coupled with 300mm of pen and 640 average dmg on AP turns this thing into a monster

Play it as a support tank and use it to snipe at some moments, you need to be able to read the battlefield to arrange your playstyle

Snipe and destroy in the start of battle.

If ur team is advancing move along.

If ur losing....

Hold back and take our the best enemy tank(remember  

BEST ENEMY TANK NOT LEAST HE OR THINNEST ARMOR!!!)

Great. Another hopeless player trying to get 268. Don’t even bother. You’ll disgrace the TD and annoy your team. Yeah right... use ISU as an ambush tank... great idea. With that crappy armour and crappy manoeuvrability and that crappy concealment.

Wow you sure are supportive. At least this guy came to forum to ask for advice. And he's not even talking about the 268. He's still on T8. Nowhere is it stated that he is rushing. Moreover, you basically just bashed the thread, but added zero advice yourself.

Sarcasm with no added value.... So basically, this isn't even criticism, but insult? Coming from a guy who i don't know if this is your main or not, but you run 50% in your Obj. 268 and 704?
