Version 8.0 will bring a lot of new content for World of Tanks. One of the main additions as well as the widely-anticipated physics is the new branch of Soviet tank destroyers.

As usual, the russian developers exagerate on russian tanks...
Edit: Already in every game teams are consisted of mostly russian tanks, at least half of the team usually is of the over-powered russian tanks.
Everyone prefers to enjoy bouncing all the bullets and doing enormous damage instead of trying to fight hard against russian tanks.

"Object 263 has very strong frontal armor that can even protect him from high tier heavy tanks"

What the hell does that mean? Tier X heavy tanks already got the worst guns out there, Tier X TDs and Medium tanks already outgun all the heavys in the game by far. Even meds got same pen as heavys now, same damage and 2x better RoF, and I dont even want to start with TDs ...

So, when he said Obj 263 front armor can even protect him from heavy tanks he actually meant Obj front armor sucks? :Smile_unsure:

actually he meant was he said
I can't give any data right now, but the front armor of the hull and upper structure is quite solid

current obj268 hull is based on the IS-8/T-10 hull and it's quite thin compared to the obj263

Did they change the SU-101 in test 3 or it's an old video? Because saying that it has a comparable gun (219p) with ISU-152 (250/280p) is a nonsense.

New Russian TDs: Medium tanks speed and traverse speed, fast rate of fire, very good accuracy and big damage(some not the best damage but still enormous damage for that rate of fire and accuracy)... The top tier "In your face" armor.

agree! way to much rusian tanks in every game

I mainly play German tanks... I used to like this game much more without the frence line (except low tiers) and these TD's will just make it worse.
So I tested them on CT and I like them a lot. there fore you'll untherstand that i will not like them in-game.
btw, I will buy / play them. but it will be playing on "easy mode"

Maybe the time has come for a gamemode "only WW2 tanks"
or "gamemode
1. "all"
2. "till 1945"
3. "only tanks and TD's (all and till 1945)
4. "limited arty of 2 max."

This is different, second line, so no free tank or automatically researched tanks.

Sure the object 263 has no roof, that would mean something if my Maus could fly and bomb it from above. But it can't.

And the printer salesman in the video says the object 263 has poor mobility, that's simply a lie.

Actually, to think, if you shoot from a hill you can hit the top... From how it looks from 1 shot all the crew should die but sure they won't...

Russian tanks have this special 2-times bounce effect so most likely it will bounce off! :)

That  SU-101 looks amazing! I don't care how it performs, it will be the first tank i'll keep just for the looks. :Smile-playing:

Just played on the test server in a t8 match. This new T8 russian TD made 12 kills, killed my T34 like nothing(face to face turned both) and I was just bouncing on him with gold bullets.

Did I heard right? :Smile_amazed: A TD that can flank other TDs or Heavy tanks? Since when did TDs became fast moving flankers? :Smile-hiding:
This is madness! :Smile_ohmy:  Madness? THIS IS WOT!!! :Smile-izmena:
