Seen a lot of discussion about the 430u, but barely anything on the 430, so whats peoples opinion on this? Which tank do you think is superior and why? 430 or t54?

The 430 doesnt seem to gain that much. 390 alpha isnt really outstanding for tier 9 meds, only advantage is in the big caliber which makes overmatching a bit easier. Turret armor seems kinda similar, but hull armor seems worse on 430 as it got 40mm overmatchable deck that can be hit from the front. Then its got less view range, a lot less power to weight and overall worse mobility. Oh, and it lacks the 330mm HEAT rounds that let the T-54 engage any tank in the game. Yeah... doesnt seem like a keeper to me.

I suspect it's all down to style. 430 vs the T-54 with the gun most use still gives the T-54 an edge in most areas. For me the T-54 is still more versatile and well rounded for most jobs with the mobility and gun depression. I know it's just -1 extra. But that 1 makes all the difference on minor bumps at times. As it has more dpm with the gun most use, and still less dispersion etc.

 

430 has the alpha and the turret armor. And that's about it. So great for those that likes to be aggressive.  I could not see much in the extra hull traverse etc. So it still feels worse on mobility. But atm I suspect I won't play it as much as the T-54. Tho I've found recent enjoyment in the AMX 30's gun and mobility combo. So even vs that it seems "meh".

I dont really like either to be honest. T54 is a good tank but the gun ruins it for me personally. due to the pen. Obj 430 doesnt haven this problem, BUT when bottom tier it will be useless seeing as the gold pen is too low.. good luck fighting mauses, type 5s. even type 4s with that pen on the APCR round, buff the gold pen on the 430 up to around 280-300 and then it will be fine.

 

At the moment im just gonna sell it and make some credits and keep the new tier 10

Exactly this.

sad too say it but it still is not enough for fighting those mengtanks.

 

e50 somehow seems oblivious, probably because it chews through everything else with such precision that by the time you find the japderp its entire team is marmalized.
