I saw some streamers and YouTubers and other players say how OP the Obj. 257 hull is (yeah I know it's a little too much) and how they "feel bad" for the Tier 7's & 8's, This is the Tier 8 turret of the new tier 9 Soviet heavy (I know it can change, but knowing WG it might not) there's not one single weak spot on the turret.

 

Get this in a good hull down position and you'll be a fortress

If it was a french tank (or any other nation), those copulas would be BRIGHT GREEN.

LOL, that's true, and its the same with the Obj. 257 the cupolas are green and it has the same weakness as the IS3 when you shoot on top of the turret above the gun you will pen it, happened to me got shot by a tier 8 IS-M. Everyone chose one thing to complain about an forgot about the big red turret in front of them

Hopefully if enough people send in feedback from the test servers it will be adjusted but if they dont

T32 is the same way, has been in the game for years. Same story with the IS-7, T-62A, and many others. Invincible turrets are fine because they're only OP when hulldown, assuming the hull itself can be penned. The reason the 257 is getting so much attention is because it goes against how the game works at a FUNDAMENTAL level. I'd go so far as to say the invincibility to tracking and damaging shots is as far from the core game as the artillery mechanic.

It's the first iteration of the test server.  I think you can wait until the second test to get your collective panties in a twist.  In case you've forgotten, the swedish heavies were pretty op on the fist test but how are they now?
