New* Tier IX Russian HT.

 

One of the pre-prototype ideas for the IS-7 super heavy tank, the Obj.257 heavy tank had the same distinctive pike nose hull and strong turret like the Obj.260. Armed with a modified BL-13 122mm cannon, it was one of the earliest designs for the IS-7. The documentations of the Object 257, 258, 259 are muddy and difficult to find actual technical drawings or blueprints of the vehicles.

 

This Russian heavy tank is planned on replacing the T-10 at tier 9.


It will likely appear after patch 9.21....

This is great news, the Russian lines have been so neglected.

So they buffed the T10 so they could remove it???I knew thinking was a waste of time for W G personnel.Maybe I give them too much credit with the thinking part.

Looks fine to me, armor is once again forgiving but not overpowered, gun is inaccurate, slow aiming, and high alpha (very Russian Da) 

This looks much more useful then the fairly mediocre T-10, which was easily penned and wasn’t fast enough for the loss in protection. It also is a closer step to the IS-7.

 

Let’s be honest, this will get penned frontally by high tier TDs and Prem spam, but if angled well and carefully positioned, its armor will work to some extent. I see 2 nice weak cupolas on top that aren’t impossible to hit like the 7, but small enough that they don’t give auto pens to everyone who looks at it funny. Speed is actually decent though you won’t be circling enemies, instead using it to relocate (that’s great for a heavy) The gun is good enough and what I expected, I think anything smaller would actually make this tank more dangerous. 

 

Overall a a pretty nice change, as a Rusdian Tank Primary player, I like this choice.

You're really going to try and debunk russian bias over 1 TD (which is still a good td in the right hands) when they have all those other amazing tanks?  GTFO...

 

Edit:  I'm with xrays.  Stop giving WG money and they will start doing things differently.

And the T-43, and the KV-3, and the KV-4... but then you have those Chinese knock offs that magically perform better than the real tanks, wonderful, ain't it?

The armor isn't "good". It's unbelievable. Frontally, it's roughly balanced, since the LFP is 220mm effective, which does let other tanks penetrate it head on. However, like the 252U, the angling on it's pike nose is so strong that it doesn't lose that much strength if you overangle it. You can get the entire frontal hull over 250mm effective no problem, which is outside the range of most tier 10 HTs standard rounds. To make it even worse, due to the V shaped armor profile, the entire side of the tank is an autobounce for any gun in the game at a mild angle. You can drive out side on and bounce JPE100 rounds. You can sidescrape while showing 270mm effecive at a minimum. Tier 7s don't have a hope in hell of dealing with this thing.

And the US tree continues on without the rightful M60A1, a heavy tank shoehorned into a TD (T30 Heavy), and wrongfully labelled T110 tank proposals as TDs (T110E3/E4).

 

To make it worse, the T95/T96 tanks that could be a second or even third medium line are having variants made in CW reward vehicles and friend referral vehicle.

I like my T-10.  It's one of the best tanks I own.  I really hope they don't make this change until they have a new Tier X to make a mini-branch and let us keep our T-10s.

This tank is like the Defender, like how the Defender is a tier 9 at tier 8, this is a tier 10 at tier 9. Great.

Yeah, I took a break. Got burnt out during Labor Day's 2x XP all weekend long; and back during August/September, news have been slow. So I bought all of the Witcher series and took a good break. Now I'm doing catch-up. lols.

Someone was saying that there is a possibility of moving the T-10 to a mini branch off the IS-3 moving toward a new Tier X called the Obj. 777. 

 

Got any info on that Sahm?

They are introducing a "poor man's Defender" because too many complained about it. 

 

(Oh after the 257 comes out expect the Defender to go back on sale cause this is the direction Wargaming is going with their tank lines.)

 

The T-10 was unique and unique is not "gamically correct" for WOT. Individualism is out, conformity is in.

 

Welcome to the new Game Order.
