Months ago WG said they was going to give this tank the hydro system the Swedish tds had due to this tank has it irl anyone else heard anymore news on this as this would add a very different play style medium into the game that I would love to try out to see how it plays ridges.

Wargaming's idea died just like so many other things on this game.

The tank already peaks very well... You'd still have the same issues of bad aim time/accuracy and mediocre turret armor.

They will redo the maps so it can't take advantage of the new mechanism.

I'm not sure if they said they were going to give it hydro suspension.  It might have been a case that they were considering it.  However, the STB-1 already gets a very good depression because the hydro suspension feature wasn't available when it was introduced.  It currently has more than the tank has in real life, because of this.  So giving it hydro suspension may not end up with any real benefit, as they would take off some of the depression it currently has if they gave it hydro suspension.

My primary problem with the STB-1 is a terrible gun handling, now if you nerf the depression to -7 and then give it hydro suspension that gives -10 with fare better gun handling. The tank itself would be unique to play.

i could see the STB-1 taking advantage of this if it gets increase gun handling, but it wouldn't help it with bouncing shots like actual gun depression as the hydro suspension would raise the turret as well.
