The hullarmor is frontally very similar to the IS-7, the turret is much shittier than on the IS-7 or the 260 (pretty big cupolas, potentially a big overmatchable roof.

The sidearmor is much better than the IS-7 or the 260, the armor above the tracks is 140mm slightly angled (~30°), the armor behind the tracks is very similar to the T-22, (70-100mm? hard to tell, but it should still be a riccochet for everything except for maybe T92-AP) of nomilar armor angled at ~60° so expect a lot of trollbounces from people who are used to the weak sidearmor of the IS-7(and variants) behind their tracks.

Great another tank that I can't out-play by shooting their front drive wheel and damaging when they poke a corner like a retard... Seriously... Fuck off WG

xtreme angles everywhere, what are the crew fucking 3foot dwarfs from outer siberia or some shit. gg

So historically accurate as the russian tanker height limit was rather low anyway.

 

btw. What happened to obj777 which at least looked interesting?

My guess is that they had to hit the soft stats too hard to counter the advantages of the armour & profile, and that made it too unpleasant to play. I suspect they had the opposite problem with the Chieftain mk6.

Fuck knows how the T-22 sneaked through that balancing system.

Cannot bring over the Chieftain Mk. 6 because it's poorly balanced?

Cannot balance the tanks and maps that are already in the game?

Who cares about fixing those problems first? Just introduce another tank!

New tanks = higher profits. 

rebalance = investment with little or no guarantee for a return.  This is also the same as admitting your game is shitty.  Sure, acknowledging this on a forum or in a QA that only existing players will see a great way to keep frustrated players interested.  Advertising such a thing on the other hand.......   So a balance patch happens and is considered a NO PROFIT update. Nothing to advertise. Nothing for marketing team to market.

 

And that leads them to this. Copy paste.
