If you are looking for an enjoyable grind, go for the Object 268. If you are looking for CW, and a long hard boring grind necessitating the use of copious amount of free exp, go for the Object 263

Object 263=IS-7 without a turret
Object 268=SPG without god view but gets a sniper view.

Your pick.

Best advice, go on test server and play both, see which you prefer. Go from there.

The grind to the 263 will be hell, and the 263 is no better then the Object 268, leaving you with a rather clear choice. We already have three heavily armored tier X TD's, the 268 is nothing special in that regard, while the Object 268 continues to be the stealthy king of obscene firepower. The guns have about the same DPM, the Object 268 has the clear pen advantage, accuracy is near identical, aim times are more similar in practice then you would think, the Object 268 has the clear alpha advantage, the Object 268 has hands down the best gold round in the game, and I bet I could go on.

The Object 268 is most likely the tank you want, basically.

Just going to say, the 268 is great, just a very high priority target for arty, you can kick ***, just don't get spotted.

I have them both, and if I could only keep one, it would be the 268, higher alpha is better for me.

Yes I think over all 268 is better.

On the other hand the 263 has great armor(pretty epic armor in fact), and even more mobility. Also betr accuracy and aim time. It has open top though, so very vulnerable to arti if you stay still.

I have the 263 and it's a blast.  Insane frontal armor, but gold shells have normalized that a bit.  You can't be too aggressive, and arty is devastating to it.  But, having said that, I still love mine.   10-15° angling makes it much tougher to pen.  Great dpm with the 9 sec reload.  Anyways,  the 268 is more popular, but I think the 263 is highly underrated.

Terrible description but good advice.

Brock, you don't have an Obj. 263, and IS-7, OR an Obj. 268. Why would you give advice on tanks you've never used??????

The upper plate will bounce goddamn Object 268 HEAT shells and T110E3/4 APCR shells, those are the most powerful rounds in the game, I assure you, gold rounds have not hurt your tanks frontal armor in the slightest.

Never play with SU-100M1 or SU-101 aka, SU-l0l, those tanks are pain.....Those tanks are the main problem. When you see an ISU-152 with BL-10, you will look your SU-101 and you will say: oh god why!!!

268 is the ONLY tank that makes me cringe. Playing around with it on the test server, doing those 900-1000 damage rolls so fast I'm surprised it's not nerfed but than again it is a russian tank. *cough*

Just watch out for the Russkies while on the test server; they'll TK you as soon as you say anything in chat that ISN'T in Russian or any other Cyrillic-based language (though they seem lenient towards people from other slavic countries like Poland or Serbia; inb4 SerB puns).

Are you saying that Russian/Slavic nationals are biased against non-Russian/Slavic cultures? I don't believe it...

NOPE!

I enjoyed the SU-100M1 and am enjoying the SU-101 (2/3rds through the grind).  I like the 6s reload and the pen is pretty decent, the frontal armour will bounce some shots too.  They only major downfall of either tank is the fact that they have almost no gun depression, that can be a right pain at times.
