I really can't understand the big difference between the side armor and also tracks of these tanks. It is almost impossible to penetrate a 257 through the tracks and also the side armor is 250+ mm pen resistant while the situation with 705 is completely the opposite. 

 

705 has super weak tracks and side armor is nothing who knows what compared to 257 while 705 is the sidescraping tank

Reverse side-scrape the 257 and you'll soon change your mind :).

welcome to the new world of tanks...where any logic, any balance is unimportant and every patch ONE UPS our current nonsense.

Well, 257 get overmatched by 136mm+ gun.

Basically a SU-152 shooting AP can kill a 257.

It can't do the same to 705, except if it shot down on the 40mm engine deck.

Well that sure makes it balanced.

I don't think it's OP, just trollish. And the SU-152 it's the mother of the trollish situation. A 135pen gun can pen you while a 285 APCR can't. :teethhappy:

I'm a little confused with Obj. 257. Just a little while ago, my 257 bounced something like 2550 damage, but was relatively easily killed by the Löwe....

Depends on angle.

 

Front is relatively easy to penetrate if you can negate the angles.

Also Lowe can pen the upper side armour too, as every 190+mm pen gun.

I hated the Obj 257 grind because everyone seemed to know where to pen, regardless how I angled. I love the Obj 705 grind though.

Luckily, I unlocked the IS-7 (which I don't like) with the T-10, so I don't really need 257 at all. I should just sell the thing and move the crew elsewhere. Profit.
