  1. You sure about the armor ? just watched something that told me it was 110 in front ant 260 turret ? Because if it’s 160 this thing would juste be better armored than a Tier 10

  2. Because we need another russian prem HT, oh no, that wasn’t the reason. Its because WG needs to milk out the community a bit more before the game dies….

  3. Yet another Russian heavy tank that can put the French heavies to shame in armored AND SPEED

    1. ROFL!

      Hull armor: 160 / 160 / 120 mm

      160mm side armor Tier 8 ? WTF I am gonna raise a complaint about my 252U

    1. There would be less than a month (at best) for testing the tank, granted it’s a Russian heavy so there’s not much to test to begin with, but I doubt this will be the February marathon premium.

  4. The only Russian T8 premium heavy I have is the IS-6 (a freebie from guessing right during the eSports days), so yeah, I’ll grind for it if it’s the new marathon tank.

    1. considering what you have, wouldn’t a tank from bound shop be good for you? i mean IS5 is aceptable and KV-4 kres is basically a kv5 with pen and no pref mm

  5. Bad tenk, it needs an autoreloader with 4 shells, 420 alpha, 703v2 gunhandling and 1.5 sec intraclip, da! And a 22 sec reload, Kappa.

    Retarded tards at WG. But they ofc need to intensify powercreep and P2W, after a whopping -20% player loss because in the most retarded HolidayPoops ever.

  6. How about you make a 100mm gun, give it 250 DMG and give it better gun handling, that would make it unique and fun. Or an autoloader with 4 180 DMG shells in the clip and 220 pen.

    1. RU HT with a 100mm gun already exists, the KV-85 with the good gun (currently collector’s tank for unknown reasons while the trash KV-1S is in the techtree) and the IS-2-II with the top gun.

  7. So the hull armor values were wrong, thanks for fixing the post.

    Would have to see the armor model, could be trollish but pennable like the IS-3 or it could be better/worse than that.

  8. View range needs to be nerfed. Its top speed is too high for that view range. It can out scout LTTB. Its scout speed. Not even FCM 50T is that fast.

    1. The tank will never reach that topspeed by far. You need to work with the hidden values as well and not just look the vmax.

  9. If you guys look closely, it has the V shape hull similar to 257, so expect to bounce it sides a lot lol

  10. So this one most probably is either lootbox material, or some far future marathon/auction/black market lot.
    But at this rate, I wonder what type of Tier8 prem tanks WG will release after 2-3 years?
    They will have to have 560 dmg and 250 silver pen gun, preferably magazine and even crazier Tier9/10 like armor, otherwise, no one will buy it.
    This is getting ridiculous 🙁

    1. I have a feeling WoT will eventually end up like Armored Warfare – next to no techtree content, and 99% premium content (not an exaggeration here, AW sustains itself exclusively with premium content and they’re pretty open about it).

      And of course, as you say, to sell premium content it’ll have to be good stuff.

      Then again, the minions in Minsk have never tried to hide their aim to never end the so-called “arms race”, that is, gradual powercreep of old content in favor of new one.

  11. Who wants old shitty premium tanks? Who wants techtree tanks?
    I want the latest and best premium tanks to be competive against n00bs.
    I demand high alpha, good aim, no weakspot, high armor but high speed and good fast apcr. Probably a 3 clip is great to punish anyone back to the garage.

  12. It is this tank
    listed as an IS-7 Prototype (Which it was). However, I always assumed It was an object 260 variant, I never considered it being the object 259, (Which was still a legitimate, IS-7 prototype), which is actually really interesting imho. (Except for the fact that it is a damn TIER 8 PREMIUM, it should be tier 9 at least, and there is a theoretical branch for it too. In fact, a lot of premiums that they have released and tested recently have had branch potential, which goes to show how greedy WG really is and continues to be sadly enough.)
