Is-2 and su-100 still useless piece of crap.
IS-2 can be easily penetrate by 50mm German guns. -_-
Su-100 should be better armored than Su-85, and should have more HP.
And I should to spam 34-85 over and over again(like i did before), because the rest of top-end USSR armor is useless.
Oh, cmon.......

I don't know which game you're playing, but I really think you couldn't be more wrong. The SU 100 IS better armoured than the SU 85, and its gun is more powerful than a Panther gun.

Also, the IS 2 is pretty much the strongest allied tank in the game, goes on par with Pershings, Panthers and Tigers. This is CoH, not world of tanks.
