A minibranch containing 3 heavies - IS-M, Object 705 and Object 705A. Considering the IS-M is related to the IS, I guess it is pretty likely that the line will start from the tier 7 IS.

 

 

Tier: HT-8, USSR, regular
HP: 1500
Max. speed forwards/backwards: 35 / -12 km/h
Hull traverse speed: 26 °/s
Turret traverse speed: 32 °/s
View range: 350 m

Hull armor: 120 / 120 / 80
Turret armor: 250 / 140 / 120

Damage: 390 / 390 / 530
Penetration: 212 / 240 / 68
Reload speed: 12.6 s
Accuracy: 0.42
Aim time: 3.0 s

Tier 10 candidate is the Object 705A - basically a much heavier (100 ton) version of the Object 705 (which will be the tier 9), which in return was rear turreted heavy tank that was developed around same time as the Object 260 (IS-7). Neither of them never got past blueprint stage. The 705A mounts a 152 mm gun. 

Turret of 705A:

Spoiler

 

-------------

Its more Russian tanks and basically more super-heavies, but hey, at least they are not premiums, and as long as they are balanced, I definitely welcome them, because new lines are what keeps many people interested and admittely they have barely added new lines recently (the line reworks doesn't really count). In now almost 2 years they have added basically 4 lines, 1 of them being uninteresting clones and 1 of them being a minibranch.

Might be fun, actually. As long as they are balanced. A Russian super-heavy with 152 mm gun though sounds pretty scary in that regard.

Yeaaah, that's exactly what we need. Moar tier10 HE derps (ofcourse with obligatory p2w gold - more dmg, otherwise the same - ammo).

Yeah the last thing this game needs is more heavy armour tanks that you can only viably engage with premium ammo because all the maps are corridors.

 

These tanks should be left out of the game until heavy armour has been completely rebalanced according to standard ammo, premium ammo has been removed completely and maps have been opened up.

I preume Russian players thought it was unfair a German heavy had 750 alpha so they've decided to make one for them.

wat

 

They haven´t even finished the new T-10 line yet, and not even begun on the IS-4 line rework they keep talking about for over a year. And they´re throwing another line in?

Just what the Russian players need to get rid of that foul taste left in thier mouth by the Skorpion G.

A  Russian Skorpion G on steroids. Brilliant!

Thats the first iteration though, the latest one has bit less DPM and bit worse engine but 220 mm turret armor instead of 100 mm. Skorpion G with armor is exactly what we need <3

The armor & pen value combo are curious. This is one tank that will have trouble penning itself. From the looks of it, the visor on front might be a weakspot, if that shape is modelled like that; flatter armor: easier to pen.

 

Looks like the Russian version of the german rear turret VK line.

Lets not forget premium shell which has almost 310 mm pen. That would be fairly okay for HEAT, already very nice for APCR...but its AP, so it has less normalization and way less dropoff at range to the point where it can pen Type 5 Heavies at long range. Top fucking kek.

I think Is-4 and Is-7 are too similar, makes little sense to have both in 2 different lines. Like the 430 and Obj 140.

 

I don't think there is a problem to have similar tanks on the same line (like the Chinese), but different lines should have different play-styles.

No wonder number of games played and active players are decreasing...

I sure I remember reading before that the plan was to keep the KV and IS lines separate and more catergorised.
