      They’re going to be adding a tier 10 for that in a later patch. Its certainly a very odd situation because no line as far as I know has ended at tier 9.

      Just spend the next 2 months grinding out the 430 II to get the 430 which will become a tier 9 allowing you to play it to unlock the 430u. Chances are WG will make a log of all players that have unlocked the 430 via the 430 II and give them the new tier 10 free of charge…I hope.

    Object 257 has the same gun of Object 260, i.e. the BL-13-1, which fires APCR in default, and premium shell is HEAT. IS-7’s S-70 130mm would become somewhat obsoleted while engaging Object 257 / 260.

    I thought they retracted the Obj 263 change? Maybe they worked the Obj 268 ver 4 with a 130mm?

    Hopefully, the Obj 430 II will either lead to the Obj 430y or a new Russian Medium. Otherwise, I am ok with the changes/

    Captain here !

    T-10 will lead to Obj.777 II if they did not find something else.

    They are thinking about leading Obj.430 II to Obj.705A if no other Medium Tank is found to take place on Tier 10.

    Obj.268 v4 was just added to remove SU-122-54 from the line.

    *flies away*

      As said somewhere else, there are better candidates as TX after the T-10 than the Obj.. 777 II: the Obj.770 and the Obj.277. They are directly derived from the T-10, are the two last soviet heavy tanks conceived, are both equipped with the 130mm M65 and both are present as prototypes in Kubinka.

    According to WG Fest, they’re thinking of introducing another Tier X followed after the Obj. 430 II, in order to achieve the promised “versatility” amongst the meds in the Russian tree (i.e. by introducing a 4th Tier X option with a rear turret).

      You’re thinking of multi turret functionality. The ST-II will more than likely just be treated similar to an autoloader where you have 2 shells loaded and fire each gun then fall back to reload both guns.

      That would be the most logical way to do it

    OMG … they actually include the Object 257 in the game…. go to tanksGG and have a look at its armor model. Its 95% as bad as the T-22 medium tank with very extreme sidearmor angles covered with spaced armor. FFS we have enough trollarmor tanks in the game -.-

    Personally I get that people are frustrated with the 263 at tier 9 but lets not forget tier 9 MM is very good. Might turn out to be a great move. I very much like that the T-10 is staying, love the tank and I am close to 3 marking it.

    1. yeah… now you have a great TD, with great mobility and good dpm and decent frontarmour… so then you will move that tank to tier IX you have to nerf something… the good dpm? not likly, the armour? Even a bit less then now will mean, that every 260pen gun will shoot throuw, so they will nerf the mobilty….. And thats the (for me) most pleasent part at the moment. … so yeah

    I’m glad to see the T-10 sticking around. There are so many spin-off prototypes based on the thing that it wouldn’t make sense to remove it entirely just to streamline the IS-7 line. Obj.777 would be an interrsting choice, although there are other, more directly related vehicles to go after it.

    I have to wonder if those who have the IS-7 will see some sort of reimbursement. I mean, it’s hardly a huge changeup, but it would be nice to have the new tier 9 or maybe even tier 10 unlocked for free like they did with the introducrion of tier 10 lights.

    Could not be worse for me
    starting to like my o-430, spent my christmas discounts on both 54 and 263
    and they completely fucked up a good tank line that goes together like jigsaws and are actually real tanks, not to mention, balenced.

    First good year to everyone filled with happiness and joy! Now I have 2 questions 1) If I have the T10 will I get the tier 9 leading to the is7? and 2) what exactly will happen to the obj 416?

      Possibly something like what happened with the Maus line shake up.
      If you had VK45B and were going for Maus, well hope you still have that Tiger P in your Garage or enjoy the new Panzer VII

    Why doe peeps cry about the Obj. 263, if you have it when they change it, you will still keep it. So not a big deal at all 🙂
