The 252U will not be nerfed. This is the way the new premiums will be. The reason all the new premiums are so stronger is because they don't have preferred MM. Since they don't have preferred MM they must be stronger. If you want a preferred MM tank you better buy it before WoT quits selling them for good.
Ever notice how the Defender's armor is closer to tier 10's than Its own tier?
The minimum hull armor on the IS-7 is 243mm, on the Defender the minimum is 232. It literally has 11mm worse hull armor than one of the most well armored tier 10's, and its turret is basically the same from the front, excluding the commander's hatch.
Why does a mobile tier 8 tank with better alpha damage and similar DPM compared to tier 8's have tier 10 armor?
Mobile? That's a nice joke you did there.
Similar DPM compared to other tier 8s? Yea similar to some of the worst tanks for DPM in the tier. And did you forget the god awful handling and accuracy which further lower the DPM, especially when you miss, because with higher alpha comes higher DOM loss when you crap handling let's you down on a key clutch shot on an enemy that made a mistake.
Did you miss the fact that the Defenders lower plate takes up the vast majority of the vertical space of the hull, and is therefore very difficult to effectively hide?
Also the Defender, unlike the IS-7 has an easily damaged turret because the cupolas are very easily hit at the ranges this tank is designed for.
IS-7 one of the most heavily armored tier 10s? Not by a significant margin.
I'll give you an A for effort though.
