Object 430 Appreciation and Boasting Thread

Bleh, bought this for a while, almost immediately sold it. Hugely disappointed. I couldnt make sidescrape work at all, and otherwise the armor scheme was wholly inferior to the 907. I was hedging my bets on the armor being troll as fuck, but the only one who got trolled was myself. No thanks.

Just played it on the sandbox with 400 ping... had no issues absolutely destroying anything I came across in it so I'm glad I'm grinding for it on my account.

Seems like this tank is quite decent. Skill4ltu has been playing it has 3.3k dpg in it. Circon also thinks it's quite the strong tank. Might be worth to look into keeping it.

Probably too soon to tell if it's a keeper but probably enough to hold on to it a day or two.

Without wanting to sound lazy, care to elaborate?

The 430's main trick is hitting for 390 instead of 320. To do this, it trades mobility, gun handling, premium pen, gun depression...

I just finished the grind with ~65% WR, which is +- what I get with tier 9s recently. The tank plays a bit differently than the usual russian meds, I needed like 30 battles or more to get used to it. The tank is OP against low tiers and at least good to decent in tier 10 battles depending on the team composition and the map.

Armor: The armor is solid and it got lots of hp, it can side scrape like a boss. Frontal pens break the fuel tank so burns often. I used repkit, medkit, AFE. I am cheap af.

Mobility: Its mobility was a bit annoying, but mostly because of my preconception about the mobility of a med.After I got used to it, it didn't seem to be a big problem anymore. The only real issue with the engine power that I was pushed against walls by lower tier meds and could not push them away.

Gun: The gun is workable. The accuracy is bad, but the gun handling is okay. The alpha is Keygrasm on this platform. The pen is not great but other tier 9 meds manage with similar. 

Tipp towards the grind: The second track doesn't give any advantage over the first one except the track health and the load capacity. Both track has the same dispersion, terrain resistance and traverse values and it is not needed to advance towards the 430U. Don't waste xp/freexp on it!  It has only one turret and gun, that means the engine is the only module, that needs to be unlocked to go from stock to "elite". Probably the best stock grind in the game.

On this, i was under the impression your weight relative to your load capacity did impact things. I'm guessing you didn't test or anything but now i'm curious.
