Anyone got any ideas on what the upcoming Medium and Heavy tanks are for the Soviets after the Object 430-II and T-10? I have a fairly good idea on what it will be the HT line, but wanted to see what your thoughts are and also what other projects the Soviets ran that could be likely suspects.

 

For the Heavy Tanks though I think it is highly likely going to be the Object 277, mainly because it was developed from the both the T-10 and IS-7. It is also armed with a 130mm M-65 with a Cassette Autoloader (though I don't actually know what a Cassette autoloader is).

Time will tell... (from red alert) ...

As much as i can count i see 8 rounds in that autoloader. It would be a very balanced tonk ...

AMX 13 (all variants iirc) had a 12 round autoloader, while the T69 had a 9 round Autoloader, so very balanced indeed :P

War Thunder has an interesting tank implemented as a tank destroyer:

The mighty SU-152 Taran, I have a feeling we'll be seeing her at some point as Tier 10 for a Turreted Soviet TD branch.

Unless that mid plate is 300mm thick, it´s not gonna make it in. Doesn´t fit the new meta.

153mm at the front and 268mm for the turret front.

It could become the tier10 following the t-10, with some tweaks here and there.

iirc it's been confirmed that the new HT will be the Obj277.

No idea about the MT though. It will have a rear-mounted turret that will not be fully-rotatable, like the tanks before it. So that can probably reduce the amount of candidates.

It's an autoloading tank in the sense it has an automatic loading system instead of a dude to do it like the IS-3A, not an autoloader in the standard WoT sense.

cassette as in you can shove more shells into it with a half unloaded clip provided it isn't firing at the moment

 

Cassette is essentially just an upsized rifle magazine which replenishes not through detatchment and top refill but a loading "hole".

 

There are primitive versions that mount it on a rig with a rail slide of sorts and detaches it for top refill as well. Just think Kalashnikov and you'll get it

Isn't that the USP of the upcoming Italian tier 8 premium medium?

The tier X medium could be interesting. If they keep to the whole giving a line a trait, I'm expecting a medium with armour and alpha, but at the same time how would they differentiate that from the 430U...

:trollface:
