Ok so times 5 is coming up and that means another tier ten for me. Ive been feeling like getting a russian medium for awhile and i have the opportunity to get either the t62a or the obj 140 my question is which in practice bounces the most shots? my only prior ten medium experience is the 4202 and id like to not move to a medium with no armor if possible.

T62 has much better armor. Obj 140 has crappy turret.

The T-62A is the go to tank for bouncing shots in that comparison. It lacks the soft part on top of its turret( its turret is basically an auto bounce zone)

Those tanks are not about armor, they're about speed and gun.... All I can say that turrets of both are strong, and 140 is getting a turret armor buff...

When is the 140 getting the buff?

I'd agree and say that if armour is your focus neither tank is going to be great. Yes the T-62a has stronger armour but i think the extra gun depression on the 140 makes it a better choice.

they both have nearly identical hull armor.

The T62A has a better turret however it has less gun depression. object 140 is faster. both can reach it easily, however the 140 keeps it's speed even when turning.

what he said. Cept it wasnt a buff, it was a change of Turret armor layout. (not sure exactly how it worked, but read up on it on FTR(for the record), since the info was on there with details to the armor change. 

 

But ya, the change came in 8.10 . 

So if its still not bouncy, then RIP.. it prob never will be.

All tho i belive the obj140 has a better frontal hull slope than the T62A.

The t62 is the king of turning mobility. The 62 has magic hover tracks.

top half of 140 turret is still swiss cheese. t62 has basically no cupola and autobounces anywhere except near the gun,

You can't really go wrong with either one.  They are virtually clones save for minor details.
