For more accurate/complete stats, its already on tanks.gg on 1.10.1 client:

https://tanks.gg/v11010ct/tank/obj-274a

Soft stats are surprisingly terrible for a russian tank, so it probably won't be as broken as a lot of people thought. Gun handling is probably the worst in tier out of mediums, terrain resists are almost IS-7 levels (though there's hidden hidden stats (reason why 277 is more mobile than is-7 even though all the hard/hidden stats would indicate otherwise) so it could still be mobile) and so on. HP pool is oddly low and the hull armor is a lot worse than I thought, tho it still seems trollish. That being said that turret armor looks really dumb for a tier 8 MT, and the combination of that pen, alpha and DPM is still nasty even if the gun handling is abysmal. It can probably somewhat compensate the gun handling with the use of its dumb gold ammo (289 APCR is same as KV-4, which in return is almost Löwe levels of good, on a medium) and food.

1200 HP is going to be a pain to play with but the rest of the tank looks very strong. On the one hand, the egg shaped hull means it can't angle on flat ground, but the flip side is that it lets you bait shots by peeking corners beak first. While not intended as such, the fact it has APCR instead of HEAT will make it somewhat passable as a camo sniper.

IRM +vstab+food+bia mitagates alot of the bad dispersion values. 

bounty IRM + improved Vstab makes it normal 

the British TD thing got more screwed with terrible dispersion values like i suspected, .29 on the move/tank traverse which is worse than both the skorp and the SU-130pm. but basically no dispersion when turning the turret. so it will be a bush wanker

That's a bit lame. Was hoping the marathon tank wouldn't be so similar to the previous one.

Tank itself looks okay, but I'm not sure how to feel about it. Looking at it from a typical medium standpoint I think it looks kind of mediocre. However, there's one thing that gives me hope:

That side armor is incredible because of the innate slope. No T8 medium comes remotely close; you should be able to out-brawl any heavy that can't/doesn't care to use HEAT to deal with a t8 med.

Its not a bad option for a primary credit earner because of the ridiculous pen (227 AP, 289 APCR), but 320 dmg/1k shell cost is not great, especially given you'll probably be throwing a lot more shells into the dirt and flanking much less than a LIS or Lansen. I think it kind of balances out the earnings.

I feel like people are looking for every reason why this tank won't be strong and ignoring the total package it presents. If you compare it to the other heavium tier VIII premiums: E75TS, Renegade, Cent 5/1, IS-3, T54proto

It wipes the floor with the T-54proto (274 can cheese it's mantlet, overmatch turret roof or pen upper plat with silver rounds. T-54 can't do shit back).

The others range from solid (Cent) to arguably best heavy in tier (Rene) and the 274 slots in there easily. It all depends on the mobility and hidden hidden stats.

If it's IS-7 like (moves like the hp/t and resistance suggest), I still think it still clearly edges out the Cent 5/1 due to better trading ability/gold round.

If it's 277 like (laughs at hp/t and resistance), I think it will rival the Rene:

++ camo/no tumor/mobility

+ gold round

- alpha/hp

-- bloom/gun depression

After seeing them in public matches on EU. We can assume this tank will be indeed the marathon tank.

CCs are probably doing their video footages to release it as soon WGs embargo drops.
