Just in case some people weren't aware of this, here goes: Description (with some redacted notes) Developed as a J.V. Stalin Academy of the WPRA Mechanization and Motorization Program project totally not a napkin design. According to numerous sources that nobody made up, it started in 1949 so was silly putty. The vehicle had a forward placed engine bay (frontal engine fires anyone?), and the fighting compartment in the back, something unseen in a Soviet tank. The tank was canceled during the project phase aka never physically built. Tier VIII USSR premium Medium Tank Health: 1350 Engine power: 400 HP Weight: 28 t Max. weight: 30 t Power-to-weight: 14,29 HP/t Max. speed forward/backwards: 50/-20 km/h Traverse speed: 46,94 °/s Turret traverse speed: 36,5 °/s Terrain resistance: 0,671 / 0,767 / 1,534 View range: 370 m Signal range: 730 m Crew: 4 Hull armor: 100 / 45 / 45 Turret armor: 210 / 180 / 45 Gun: 122 mm D-25TS Damage: 390 / 390 / 530 Penetration: 212 / 248 / 61 Fire rate: 4,47 DPM: 1 743 Reload speed: 13,42 s Accuracy: 0,316 Aim time: 2,21 s Gun depression/elevation: -6 / +17 The obvious comparison is the Obj 416, it's a tad bigger but has a fully traversable turret with -6 degrees gun depression all around. The STG sucks out on the DPM department though, but that's not too surprising or a bad thing necessarily considering its playstyle. It should feel familiar to players used to tanks like the A-44, Obj 416 and Obj 430 II. But unlike those tanks, the STG packs a 122mm gun, and since preferential MM is dead it doesn't suffer penetration (212mm AP pen). The gun handling is also decent, and you can actually snipe with this tank in a pinch. Armor wise, the hull isn't that good, but its low profile nature plus your typical Russian turret makes the STG a decent (but not invulnerable) at hull down positions. Mobility isn't its standout feature, but being low profile you can bet it'll have decent concealment. Some may call it the baby Defender, and the comparisons are understandable. But unlike the Obj 252U, it isn't idiot-proof due to its poor hull armor, rear-mounted turret and low-ish DPM. It certainly isn't a Russian Chrysler, and that's definitely some good news. With the recent buffs to the T-44-100 and T-54 mod 1 making those somewhat viable/usable, to an extent, and tier 8 MM being a pain nowadays, I don't expect it to flood the game like the Defender did. Reasons to Buy: Don't own any tier 8 Soviet premium medium tank Familiar with rear mounted turret tanks Familiar with Russian 122mm gun bias Pixel tank collector Weird fetish fondness for Soviet tanks and Soviet patriotic artwork Willing to spend at least 44 USD/37 EURO not on food or other "necessities" Reasons NOT to Buy: Already own a tier 8 Soviet premium medium tank for training purposes Already own another tier 8 premium tank for credit farming purposes Don't like Soviet medium tanks Saving money for the Obj 277, Obj 278, Obj 279, or Obj 770 or whatever WG comes up with next
Well, a few milestones: 1. Full blue recent stats! 2. Just reached 51% overall winrate today 3. Dat overall wn8.... so close. As a frame of reference, this was me at a little over 3k games, and this was after I started trying to improve: Yes, AFTER. If you want before, take the overall stats in that picture and drop them a little. Yeah, I was pretty horrible.... There are so many things I did wrong then. I never used equipment, though I think I had I tank that had a camo net or something.... my best crew had like 85% on primary skill, most of the time I just ground fresh 50% crews. I used AP in everything, even the 105 derp on the Hetzer. I didn't carry any consumables..... just not doing those basic things greatly improved my play. Oh, and not playing on 7fps. That sort of helped.
