Hello
 and welcome to the Tier 10 Soviet award medium tank, the Object 907! The award tank for the 3rd Clan Wars campaign!


NOTE: The following is based on preliminary stats and is subject to a lot of change! Also, for obvious reasons, I havent played it yet :D ! 
 

Tank specs: 


Module tree:

Overview:

The Object 907 comes fully elite and does not have upgrades. This means that the only way to push the vehicle past its stated stats will be the usage of crew skills, consumables and equipment.
Protection and layout:
The 907 is a very small tank. Hell its slightly smaller then the T-62A, which makes it a harder target with great camouflage. Unfortunately, since the modules and crew members are so close to one another, this means they can get knocked out easily. The price you pay for being a compact, small tank
The armor of the vehicle is quite good. It may say that it is only 100mm, but the complex egg-shaped hull and good angles make it MUCH better. It is more heavily armored then the 140 and 62A for sure. When used well, it can rival even the E-50M in armor.
The turret is quite tough too. It is well sloped and small and rounded. It does have some weak spots though. Its roof can be fairly easy to penetrate for most big guns.
The tank also has an above average HP pool of 2000.

Mobility:
Power to weight ratio is worse then the T-54's but awesome terrain resistance (slightly worse then T-62A and 140, but STILL excellent) does make it as mobile as its tier 9 predecessor. The 907 has a good top speed and it keeps it well. It is also quite agile. 
Firepower:

The biggest weakness of the tank is the gun. It is basically a T-54's D10C gun and the D-54 into one. Unfortunately, it is just not good compared to other tier 10 medium tanks and the other Soviet mediums. The damage per shot is low, as are all soviet tier 10 medium tank's guns. It is fairly accurate and aims reasonably well (though some other meds have it better). The DPM is not monstrous like on the 62A, but is not bad. The real downside is the standard AP penetration. It would have been mediocre even on a tier 9 medium. it is the same as the one of the T-54.
Conclusion:
The Object 907 is probably going to be a premier close range brawler and assault tank. Fast acceleration and great maneuverability, but with a weak gun though good armor and staying power for a medium tank.
*The Object 907 was only a prototype machine so it never saw combat. No historical battles :( *
*Being a tier 10 tank gives it the ability to fight in company battles and Clan Wars*
Price: 22 500 gold (Award tank)
Camouflage: Good
Gun Elevation: -5°/+16°
Pivot Turn: 
Limited Match Maker: No

Pros:

- Very good speed and maneuverability.
- Good armor actually and
a complex armor scheme.
- Very small vehicle.

Cons:

- Gun has very bad standard penetration compared to other tier 10 medium guns.

- Turret has some weak spots.
- Prone to ammo rack hits, engine damage and being set on fire.

 

Designation:
1.Warrior 2. Medium Assault Tank 3. Brawler 5. Flanker
The Object 907 can be an excellent wolf pack tank and is a great brawler flanker. Due to the weak gun it sucks as a sniper though

Direct Engagement Object 907: Ramer; Vertical Stabilizer; Ventilation/ Gun laying drive
Scouting Medium Object 907: Coated Optics; Ramer; Ventilation/ Camouflage Net

 

Crew:
1. Commander (also a radioman) 
2. Gunner 
3. Driver 
4. Loader  
Crew skills (only an example, up to 4th skill):

The 907 has excellent camouflage so camo skill + view range skills may work out quite well. Also the normal assault medium skills can be great too.

Spoiler


Modules:
Hull:

Armor scheme currently in use:

 

Spoiler

100m at ? degrees (? vs HEAT ; ? vs AP) /85 sides /45 rear
Hull armor, despite what numbers say, is actually nice. The complex rounded shape and tougher then average side armor and good frontal slope make for a tank with superior armor then 140 and T-62A. Frontally it is around 210-212 armor against AP, but the side parts of the frontal armor can reach up to 280mm of armor!
Side armor makes it a decent med for the sidescrape maneuver. Rear is unsurprisingly terrible.

 

Suspension:
Object 907 / Max.capacity 39.00 / Turn speed 54 deg per sec.
Turning speed is very good. Has great ground resistance values. Slightly worse then the T-62A's though. Slightly better then Object 430.

 

Engine:
V-12-5U – 610 h.p. / 10% chance of fire / 16.94 horse power per ton.
Power to weight ratio is a bit worse then the T-54, but the machine does move just as well. Because of the ground resistance values.  Still slightly higher power to weight then the T-62A and 140. It will climb hills a tad faster. It also reaches and keeps its nice top speed :) .

 

Radio:
R-123 – Range 850 meters
Few tanks in game can match this signal range.

 

Turrets:
Object 907
Armor: 228/180/46
Rotation: 40 degrees/second
View range: 400m
Turret front is tough, despite it showing "only" 228 mm. It is well sloped and at medium distances, even tier 10 guns can bounce. At close ranges 235+ pen guns may penetrate, but its not an easy shot for them.Unfortunately, the 907 is like the 140 and 430, in that its roof can be quite vulnerable to accurate high caliber guns.  Any gun with a caliber over 90mm can pierce the top easily.
The two hatches are thankfully tough though.

 

Guns:
100mm D-54TS
Ammo: 45 rounds

RoF: 8,45
Penetration: 219/330/50
Average damage: 320/320/420
Accuracy (100m): 0,36
Aim time: 2,3 sec
Shell Velocity: AP - 1015m/s ; HEAT- 900m/s ; HE - 1015 m/s

This gun is not very good. Its accuracy and aim time, whilst not great are not too bad. Its DPM is good and its damage is fairly low, but still nothing problematic. The problem is its AP penetration…its just very low. The lowest of any tier 10 tank. It’s workable, true, if you are good at flanking and know weak spots, but that does not save it.
Premium ammo is HEAT which does not get the normalization bonus that APCR gets, but does not lose penetration with distance. With 330 penetration, it can shoot most vehicles and be quite certain of penetration, but there are still some things that should be avoided, like the E-100's upper plate and the IS-4's turret. One does also have to take into account the slower speed of the HEAT shell. It is not slow, 900 metres per second is good, but after firing the AP/HE rounds, the player has to make adjustments to his/her aim when using premium ammo.

 

Comparison with its peers:

Object 907 vs Object 140
The 907 climbs faster and is more maneuverable. It also has better hull armor and overall similar turret armor. The 140 has a tiny bit more gun depression and a much better gun. 

Object 907 vs Object 430

The 907 is a bit faster and more maneuverable. The 430 has a much better gun.
 

Object 907 vs T-62A
The T-62A has a tougher turret and a much better gun. It is slower than the 907 though, and with lower hull armor.

Object 907 vs 121
The 907 has better hull armor and is more maneuverable and climbs and accelerates faster. It also has better gun depression. The 121 has a much better gun though.

Object 907 vs Action X Centurion
The 907 is faster and has a tougher hull and turret then the Action X. The British tank has much better gun depression and gun though.

Object 907 vs E-50M
The E-50M has a tougher upper plate and a much better gun and better depression. It is also better at ramming and has a higher top speed. The 907 has a better turret, better lower plate armor, is smaller and more maneuverable.
 

Object 907 vs Leopard 1

The 907 has much better armor.


Object 907 vs AMX 30

The 907 has much better armor.
 

Object 907 vs Batchat 
The 907 has much better armor.
 

Object 907 vs M48A1 Patton

The 907 has better hull and turret armor. The M48 has a much better gun and gun depression. The Soviet us faster and more maneuverable.
 

Object 907 vs M60 Patton

The 907 has better hull and turret armor. The M60 has a much better gun and gun depression. The Soviet us faster and more maneuverable.
 

Object 907 vs STB-1

 

Historical Object 907

 The decision to start development of a next-generation medium tank was made on July 13th, 1953. Development was carried out by Research Institute No. 100. The project was submitted in March 1954, and at the beginning of 1955 the hull of the new vehicle was tested for shell resistance. However, later the project was canceled.

First!

Im still quite sceptic about this. Not like any actual CW award tank has been good, but this is pretty underwelming :sceptic:

In mobility section:

Shouldn't it be 907?

I see a price for the tank, in gold: 22,500

Does this mean that the tank will be also available for purchasing using gold, or is the price put there just for us to get an idea of its value?

 

Thank you

Would love to know the balancing parameters for 219 pen and worse DPM than its cousins. Turret is shitty armored and it's not faster than 140-t62a.

a) Gift tank

 

b) Highest HP among T10 Russian meds

 

c) Best hull armor among Russian T10 meds by far. Half the front and entire upper side armor autobounces when you angle the tank a bit. As far as the turret goes, only the top third is 30mm, the rest is angled enough to be comparable to other T10 Russian meds.

 

d) You lose only like 10% DPM and the premium HEAT is identical, if you play the tank right you're easily going to bounce enough shells to make up for the difference.

 

I still don't want it even if it's going to be the best Russian brawler med, tanks that need to spam gold suck.

I dont know... did you see that roof? 30mm and its huge part of the turret. I´m still thinking about M60, why should I have worse Obj. 140?

I don't think it's much of an issue unless you get arty hit or facehug someone. Yesterday a 140 hugged my e50 and the roof wasn't even worth the time. The cupola is a bigger target.

 

The 907's cupula is quite strong aswell... In comparison the m60 has no armour whatsoever against t10 guns unless it hits part of the mantle.

The hull is not as good as everyone says. I mean, look at the TI, 140's hull is better.

I won't have access to WoT for some time due to work so please let me know if this tank is any good...

I need more info on the precision on the move and precision in general since that's the biggest problem I find about 430 and the reason I'm not playing it as much as the 140

So please inform me here as soon as the patch is out and you've tried the 907 :)

On the move and precision on the 907 is better than on the 430, that's for sure.
