        1. Wow. the comment above was meant for another post. Sucks there’s no edit/delete button. Also yea just realised that it’s 279 Early model.

    1. WG did promise that Polish tanks and PMs 2.0(second set of personal missions) were planned for the second half of this year back during WG Fest. Given how the tier spread of these vehicles it leads many to think they’re planned to be the reward tanks for PMs 2.0.

  1. Oh god, even more of these angled boat-like hulls because they work wonders for the game already on the other vehicles……..

    1. Just be glad it’s Object 279 “early” rather than the actually completed Object 279 prototype. That thing’s hull angles would be beyond insane.

          1. Also isnt this an Obj. 726? Because they look exactly the same. Did you actualy start to clickbait?

  2. Clearly Object 907 was not OP enough, let’s make a HT version of it. I really hope this will be a clanwar prize, if we have to taste poison again I’d rather we taste as little as humanly possible.

      1. And an additionnal crapton of armor. You forgot that part. The 907 front hull is sometimes trollish but still easy to pen, this thing is worse. As for turret, cupolas look smaller and tougher to hit.

  3. The nuclear tank was Obj. 726. I wouldn’t mind seeing a line of 4-track tanks with this as top. But what would the earlier tanks in the line be?
    Also please be a tech tree tank. No PM or CW crap. Goodness knows WG has screwed those up, big time.

    1. The Obj. 279 was also a nuclear tank, they both were made to be able to withstand a nuclear blast, but the Obj. 279 was just better so its prototype was actualy built

    2. I wouldn’t mind it being a personal mission reward tho. I wouldn’t want shit tons of these things running around driven by bots with deep pockets. Kinda like with the 268 v4

    3. Also, isn’t this the 726? Somehow it’s named 279 Early. The 279 is the proper nuclear tank with UFO hull.

  4. The funny thing is, the concept drawing of the Object 726 actually had a lower glacis plate, and quite a prominent one. This in-game model doesn’t.

      1. Even this design had a weakspot opportunity with that machine gun turret. What we got instead is another unkillable tank from the front. Worst part is the extra tracks make it stronger by absorbing splash damages from below the tank.
        Is this thing here just to make us want arty in our team ?

  5. No. Just no. This monstrosity has no place in the game. How is an ‘old’ tier 10 supposed to deal with this?

  6. this thing is too good, whats with that pen, dpm, turret and hull armor? better not have triangle|V hull

    1. It doesnt have a hull at all hehe.
      The upper part is V-shaped, and no lower part to shoot at.
