I think many people would agree with me that Object 260 is not better than IS7 or some other tier 10 heavies but on the contrary. The armor is pretty crap overall although on paper it does sound good and the - 5 degrees of gun depression combined with the fact that this tank is pretty tall kills the fun out of this reward tank. And, being a heavy, it turns like a whale. The gun handling is awesome (it can snipe very well) and it is fast in straight line.

 

I think a buff to this tank's armor or at least gun depression is very necessary especially considering how hard it is to get it and how annoying it is to not be able to use it as a competitive tank or just to have fun.

 

Please tell me what you think (I would appreciate it if you commented only if you have played the tank). 

 

All the tank rewards are bullcrap. May be only Stug can do something, but the HTC T55a and 260 are total joke, FOR REWARD tanks. Bettter play the regular ones.

I think they were good when they first got put into the game... but the game's changed and they remain untouched, T-54 got a turret buff recently while the T55A's turret remains the same, T28 HTC needs a traverse buff like the T28/T95 had recently. IS-7 got buffed and now has 300 more hitpoints than the Obj. 260...

 

Wargaming, you forgot to buff the reward tanks with the rest of the similar tanks from their trees! WHAT ARE YOU DOING??? :angry:

260 is waist of time, total trash tank, good mobility and fast shell, thats it.

low armor, bad dep., low hp, a lot of spots, also bigger than is4 and is7... atm its worst tier 10 tank, even most tier 9s are above him!

all that mission are for nothing, even t55a is solid tank with nice pen on HEAT and worth of missions, HTC is also solid, 260 is total mistake,

stock IS7 is more fun to play than that nightmare 260! 

 

ther is like 200+- active played 260's in last 30 days.... and thats for few games.

its not that good as it was with these new heavys around,but its not trash as some here make it out to be. for me no armour buff is needed just gun dep. -7,or -8 would make it more competitive,thats it.

the obj260 need more speed hull traverse and more dpm  (the same dpm of the t110e5 can be very good) the actual dpm is horrible for the 260, the armor (apart the stupid weakspot on the turret roof like the is4) its fine cause it is an "heavium" tank

It needs some love, it's been power crept by the 5A, 430U and IS7 buffs, plus the 277 is going to further obsolete it.

 

Armour is probably ok, maybe get rid of the overmatch spots and the hole in the gun mantlet which is just annoying, but buffing it's DPM and mobility would put it back as the less armoured but more mobile IS7 with a better gun like it was when it first came out. 

 

They have finally got round to dealing with the CW reward tanks, so hopefully they will look at the PM reward tanks because all 4 are pretty meh these days,

It has a much better gun than the IS-7, especially the premium penetration which the IS-7 grossly lacks (IS-7 really needs a small premium pen buff, even if it's only +10mm the diff will be noticeable because 303 APCR is a downright coinflip vs superheavies).

 

Other than that it shouldn't be better than the IS-7. I've never played it but imo it looks fine and fun to play. I outbrawled one 1v1 in my Defender but that's because the player was dumb.
