Object 430 has 3,1% better DMP than his two older brothers, 140 and t-62a. Better armor? Hardly, t-62a's turret is much better and 140's hull is better sloped so the chance of auto-ricochet is much higher.
So arguably, the 430 has roughly the same armor as his brothers. The mobility is pretty much comparable as well.

But the gun's accuracy and handling is nowhere near 140 and t-62a. It is worse in every single way, by a large margin which makes the tank rather boring and useless.

It is time that 430 gets some love, because they are just gathering dust in our garages WarGaming!

This is something I been wondering about and would be very interested to see what the community has to say on this topic. I could relatively quickly research T-62A, Object 140 would take a little longer. Getting 430 would take considerably longer and I'm not sure if it is worth the grind...

As it is, no. You are better off firing on the move with 140 than carefully aiming with 430 :)

Yep 430 is rubbish compared to the other 2 tanks. Slightly better DPM and side armor doesn't make it worth it considering the potato gun

Actually, the hull side armor is of the same thickness. The front armor has 20mm extra, but again, compared to 140 it is not good because of the angling. 140 can bounce any shell when angled right.

why?

 

I don't have it but I am really looking forward to getting it.  The tank seems to be a totally different beast than 140 and T62, look at its armour, its a sidescraping dpm beast,  surely its meant to be up close and personal and play like a crazy man?

 

don't make it the same as the others, pointless, play it to its strengths and have a crazy couple games in it

I'll stick with my 430 thanks.

Not going to tell you why.. but it has similar characteristics to the tier9 430.2 that makes it different to the others, that i like.

Sidescraping? You can do that with 140 and t62a. Armor is not impressive at all, and the gun is AWFUL. Not my opinion, facts.
