The Object 590, a Soviet Tier IX medium tank, is going to the Supertest.
In terms of maneuverability and armor, this vehicle is similar to other Soviet medium tanks that feature good dynamics and frontal armor. For the front of the turret, the armor plates can reach up to 200 mm, which, combined with the low profile, increases survivability. The vehicle’s total durability is 1,650 HP, while the specific power is 20 h.p./t. and the top speed is 52 km/h.
The main feature of this vehicle is its gun. The 100 mm cannon features an inverse 3-shell autoreloader that works the same way as the one on the IS-3A. The third shell loads in 16 s, the second in 13 s, and the first in 10 s. The time between shots is 3.5 s. One shot causes 320 HP of damage. Standard AP shells penetrate 225 mm, while the special HEAT shells go through 299 mm. Gun accuracy is 0.42 and aiming time is 3 s. Thanks to the inverse autoreloader, the Object 590 is ready to fire at almost any time. During moments of calm, it has the opportunity to load the whole magazine so it can have an advantage by the time it encounters the next enemy.
The combination of firepower and dynamic characteristics, in addition to the armor and the autoreloader’s peculiarities, allows this tank to cause a lot of damage to the enemy and play aggressively on the battlefield.
