    1. It’s a gimped 416 IMO… So basically pay to fail. As 1700 DPM vs my 416’s 2900 dpm just says it all. That and the 416 has 330 gold pen and 201 normal pen. And 3x more camo when firing. Russian premium mediums have never been good vs their premium HT’s. So I would not expect much here either.

  2. Gun handling is too good considering it’s a faster, sneakier Revalorise, but at least it isn’t another T-44 clone

    1. Since it has been in topic recently, don’t you want to donate your accountfor the TAP?
      It’s not selling, per se, so it does not break the rules that much…

  3. An Obj416 with a 122mm that is more accurate and has more pen than its current 100mm. And Obj416 is already a really good tank for its tier.

    Keep in mind tier 8 MTs used to have around 180mm pen as a balanced average. Things like Panther II, STA’s, Pershing…. Those were balanced tanks. And now WG feels like they need 210+mm pen with their mobility and the fact that they will see less tier Xs than before. When some tier 9s like T54E1 have 212mm pen…

    Completely overpowered. I hope Foch makes another rant video lol.
    Seriously tho they really need to try again with their global rebalance project ; and add premium tanks to it. Otherwise the game will stay in its decline.

      1. Yes but it’ll make WG lose their shit again and any bad reaction from them will hurt their PR. And that’s good because at some point the only way they’ll be able to stop looking like the shits they are will be to actualy fix the game and listen to us.

  4. WG should rename the game to Stalinium. Huge variety of Soviet tanks rather than tanks of other nations. Thank god I gave up waiting for Italian tanks years ago.

  5. *LMFAO*

    If, if they don’t address the T-44’s state, in like addressing it’s penetration on the 100 and 122 (same goes for tanks with similar bad penetration on tier 8), this will be another nail in the coffin WG’s f2p.

    Btw..how many fucking nails does it take to hammer shut a coffin any way?

  6. Depends what the traverse is like on the turret should be limited with the driver in the turret. Nerf accuracy to .42 and aim time to 2.9 and this would be fine, if they acctually listen to supertesters. Has clanwars campaign reward written all over it too.

  7. Awful gold round, bad dpm, rear limited traverse turret and armour that’s only good for HE protection why are people saying it’s OP looks like trash.

    1. Still 0.32 accuracy with a 122mm caliber on a relatively mobile and sneaky medium tank that is already known to be borderline too good with its current 100mm gun that has less accuracy and pen than this premium clone.

      1. Borderline too good? The Obj. 416 is probably the worst, most disgusting piece of shit tank I’ve ever played in this game and I’ve been here since 2010.

        1. Because you don’t know how to play it maybe. I hated AMX 50 100 and E-75, it doesnt mean the tanks are bad, it just means I suck in them. Obj has big downsides (no armor, front engine) but it has by far the best gun of it’s class/tier (if you forget about the OP premiums that keep coming out), and if well played it can really carry a team easily.

          1. So how to play it? That thing has no armor, no depression, no fully rotating turret. You can’t get anywhere remotely close to the enemy because you get torn apart immediately so the only way to use it is some kind of mobile TD mode, which doesn’t work. Why? Because maps don’t support sneaky TD playstyle anymore, there are no good TD spots anymore and if there is one, this pile of shit won’t be able to use it becuase it has zero depression and the smallest pebble on the ground makes you shoot the sky. It’s an abomination.

  12. A clone of the Object 416, it changes the flank of clones of the T-44,
    But it remains an umpteenth Russian premium char, y’en not enough,

    And then yes, it’s a pay for win!
    It is far too precise, and especially if it has the same camo as Object 416,
    It will be an undetectable horror, worse than the E-25

    1. By this point I wonder if WG even remembers that tank exists. It’s more expensive than 112 yet the only redeemable thing it has is pref mm. WG would do well to give the poor thing a price reduction and at least some minor buffs, and its HD rework is long overdue.

        1. If it’s a fake, then they can potentially tweak its stats as much as they like. Rework it in HD quality, buff the gun to STG level, give it full mm and there we go.

  13. This tank is actually a bit of a novelty. Most Soviet Tier 8 premium mediums, if not all, are T-44 clones (even the T-54 Proto is an uparmored T-44 in the end), so a premium medium that takes elements from the Object 430 line is welcome. Could be pretty good it if has camo on the level of Object 416 (and it should have good camo anyway given the low profile), though the gun is kinda confusing (gold ammo is not retarded OP so no easy 2 key shortcut, and the reload is terrible, but it’s a heavy tank gun on a medium so it’s reasonable).

    Like

    1. Keep in mind with the new MM this tank will barely see any tier X. And given the current situation in the game, either you don’t need gold against what you see, either you are facing one of the OP superheavies and would have troubles even with gold anyway. And this tank’s base pen is the same as some tier 9 MTs too, with insane accuracy for its caliber (way too strong imo). This thing is like a fast TD, it may have lower dpm but the gun is way too good already for a medium tank.

      Like

      1. The new MM has been retweaked with 9.19, forcing the 3/5/7 formula to be more common, so Tier 8s got shafted pretty hard by this move (had some games the day the patch went live, almost all of them were Tier 10). If people aren’t seeing much of this right now it’s because of ranked.

  14. People: Oh but it has crap pen and DPM and crap armor

    … Yeah but it has the accuracy to put that “Crap” pen into a weakspot meaning that it’s poor DPM is made up for in accurate fire.
    … It’s crap armor is made up for it probably good camo values and -6 depression is great for a russian medium tank.
    … It’s mobility is okay to put it into a sniping position early on, and 370 viewrange will be buffed with a nice crew and probably optics in the Vents/Rammer/Optics setup

    … It’s not going to play like a typical russian medium, but it will be very good in the hands of those who like sniper tanks with mediocre DPM, like the Strv 74…
