Mhm I hope it has better gun handling than before, especially since its accuracy is getting a nerf.

Also, the dpm loss is huge.. from  3000 to under 2600(base)... This is quite sad, as this was the fun factor of the 430 sometimes.

I also hope it keeps the insane shell velocity at ~1500m/s.

Huge armor frontally though, let's see how its camo changes.

I have a complain to make and i would be happy if someone from wg answered me! I am happy with the changes but really unhappy with one specific one. I am currently at the obj416 grinding my way up. The reason i went down that line is that i wanted to have a tank able to unlock both the obj430ii and the t54 so i can reach tier 10 without the need of going down the t44 line! With these changes i will be unable to unlock both the t54 and the obj430 in time so i have decided to go with the t54 that leads to two tier 10s. My proposition is this: shouldn't the obj430 be researchable via the obj430ii? This would mean people on the obj416 and obj430ii will not have to grind their way up from tier 6 again! And there are a lot of people in the same position as me! Thanks and i would like to hear from an official sourse.

I wonder if it kept its better camo. Really liked that it was the sneakiest of the bunch. Other then that I like the changes to the 430. 263 though...

I have been grinding the Object 430 line for almost a year (school and other stuff do not leave me a lot of time), because I wanted a very high DPM medium. Now after 10 months of effort you replace it with something that has litteraly the opposite gameplaystyle.You could have just buffed it, even though nerfing the other 2 russian meds would actually be more reasonable. Increase the DPM even more, lower the hit points and done. Same story with the Object 263 - I grind it out and the next day comes out a video saying it is getting removed even though the community clearly wants it to stay...

So it seems like the old Object 430 is renamed to Object 430B and stays in your service record with the stats that it has. Here is my question: Why on earth does it have to be removed from the game? Why can't it face the same treatment as FV215B, FV183 and Foch 155 did? It's not a gamebreaking tank in any sense of the word so why can't it stay in the game as a reward vechicle. There is no logic whatsoever in removing it when all you'd have to do would be to rename it and leave it in the garages of the people who already have it.

This new Soviet tier 10 medium looks broken as balls. Its basically a 113 with better gun handling, better maneuverability, better camo AND better armor.

RIP, 121 and 113. By far worse when it comes to armour, will turn obsolete, unless buffed up to match  Obj 430U.

As always, we’ll be looking at continue ignoring your feedback and tweaking breaking things going forward, so head to the forums and keep letting us know what you think.

 

Fixed it for you.

These Russian high alpha mediums had better be properly balanced, or there will be no more reason to touch the Chinese mediums... Few enough people play them already.

Sziasztok

Kifejlesztettem az OBJ 416 

De az OBJ 416 után nem lehet majd a T54-et és az OBJ 430-at sem amit eddig igen.

Ilyenkor nincs rá esély hogy a T44-et megadja a WG ? ( T44 nincs kifejlesztve )

Nekem a T54 kell és majd az OBJ 140 valamint T62A  is és az OBJ 430 is jól jött volna.

De így kezdhetem elölről ? 

Köszönettel : Jak23_2015 ( Hungary )

This tank is blatantly overpowered and renders 121 and maybe even 113 obsolete. It can bounce anything and has a mobility of a medium, it's a bit ridiculous.

Few questions:

1. Why obj 430 on tier 9 have 380 base view range while tier 9 htank (one before is7 on test) have 390 ?

2. Why obj 430 on tier 9 have only one gun...... bloody 122 with really strange pen change from "normal" AP to "gold" APCR with +10 mm pen over AP

3. Why obj 430 U have same/better gun handling then 121 ?

4. What WG intend to do with 121 to keep it different? I know its faster and more mobile "on paper" also got little better reload but after playing both on test server. Obj 430 U have Super Heavy tank level of armor and that make it much more superior to 121.

Also accuracy felt "Soviet tank" level broken in obj 430 U snapshooting on the move + stupidly accurate long range shots.

Obj.430 was my very first Tier X medium in WoT. Really looking forward to this replacement, as stated it really made no sense when you got to A-44 and then Obj.430 II only to get a frontal mounted turret at Tier X. Also felt like it had nothing really that special about it except for the DPM.

The obj430u can outplay the 113 and 121. I think they need armor buff.

View PostFrom the article:

So, if you’re planning to explore the top vehicle from the A-44 line, it might make sense to keep the XP points amassed on the Object 430 II until we introduce it to the tech tree. On the other hand, getting the 430 before 9.22’s release can save you time on your way to the 430U.

 

I really hope you don't plan to take away tier X tank from players that bought it without giving them the new tier X tank in that line when it becomes available in the game, because from that quote it looks like you're planing to give them a tier IX tank only, which costs less XP and less credits.
