Object 263 is assault gun like SU-152, but it is closer to SPG, than TD. I don't see it as tier 10 TD becouse it have armor of Object 261, which is tier 8 SPG.
Note Obj 261 - tier 8 SPG, Object 263 - it's Obj261 + 130 mm gun.
I dont see how 150mm armour double sloped at 65 degree is bad for any TD, fyi the 261 is rear mounted while 263 is front mounted.
As long as the super structure is strong enough this TD will be a beeast.
ATM is scheled to be released in 8.0. see development page.

I was wrong about Object 263... I'm such a noob :Smile_veryhappy:

Per SerB words Object 263 will have up to 250 mm frontal armor! :Smile_ohmy:
Lets see a 250mm super structure, a 150mm double 64 degree sloped hull and a 120mm 55 degree sloped lower hull. Moves at 50 km/h accelerate like a T59 and have a gun similar to that of a IS7 and of cource decent camo from the damn low profile...
Yes im saving up 700k xp for this TD for sure.

Its a rear mount like Obj 261 in that pic of the model so no it won't get the double sloped frontal armor.
If it gets 250mm armor its going to be much slower than IS7 and much slower accelerating.
