So, not only will have more armour and firepower that IS-4, but it would be even faster and with better P/W ratio...

How can you claim to be close to complete tier 8-10 balance if you still add powercreep?!

In the section "how to play" if should say: drive out with your track behind a corner to waste an enemy's shell.

Although it seems that not even the Russian players want these changes...

So I guess OBJ 705A is done testing and tuning in and it's ready with current stats to hit the live battlefield?

Two other tanks in line as well?

Where the *Edited do I have to download the test client? Every time I was to download the test client I have to spend 10 minutes to search for it. Why is it so difficult to just add it to the "GAME" menu, in the drop down menu you have "Download Game", then "News" ... I'm sure it's not hard to add "Download Test Client" in there somewhere.

Hello WOT Community,

 

I have been playing the 705A on the US test server and also checked the armor penetration values of the tank and noticed a few things. The upper plate of the 705a from directly at the front is around 270mm of effective armor (175mm plate) which is penetrable by all tier X premium shells. When angled slightly, the upper plate is around 320mm which is still penetrable by most tier X premium shells although the side plate will be vulnerable with 270mm of effective armor.

The point I wanna make is, isn't the upper plate supposed the be strong enough bounce premium rounds? The Pz.Kpfw. VII has an effective upper plate of 380mm (250mm plate). In my opinion this creates a very unnecessary weak spot for the 705A. Playing during the test server and hiding my lower plate, still wasn't enough to protect me from getting shot at my upper plate, doesn't this destroy the purpose of this tank for taking the lead of a charge? All other properties are okay in my opinion.

 

What do you guys think? Should the upper plate be impenetrable like the PZ. Kpfw. VII ? Has anyone experienced the same?

"Few top-tier vehicles among the Soviet lineup feel all that different to play in the big picture"

 

That is why other nations exist.

Yeah yeah, great, happy soviet new year.

 

Just what the game needed, another OP sci-fi commie tank. And there are still romantic dreamers that believe WG will someday buff a bit the King Tiger.

Ah well, lets leave the russkies to their powertripin, still trying to convince people that their uber armed Forces actually exist, suuuure...

Here's an idea! Make a map placed in Afghanistan, maybe this time your tanks fare better in a PC game against the farmers and shepherds that kicked your tender behinds back to Moscow in real life.  :teethhappy:

 

Only Word that comes to mind? Pathetic...

It seems that most of players are not educated enough to make difference between Russia and Belarus. There is a big difference. I've been reading "Russian this, Russian that...Putin this...Putin that" This is Belorussian game. And to clarify, I'm not from Russia or Belarus. I'm just tired of reading ignorant comments.

Back on topic...this game is so unbalanced that this tank wont change a thing. Eventually they will nerf it...as always.
