First of all no, iam not talking about the object 268 v4, but the one after the 704. 

Second: I understand that i will get a lot of why don't you go for the obj. 268 v4 answers, but i already did that once with the T10e5. When i got at tier 9 the tier 10 was nerfed. So there is my answer to that. 

 

So after the disclaimers, lets get to the question. 

Currently i have some silver to spend on a new tier 10 tank. Iam thinking about buying the obj. 268 but i almost never see this tank on the battefield. So i kind of wonder if the tank is bad or just not so populair? 

Looking for some advice before i spend my hard earned cash. Is the tank good/ok in the current meta? How do you guys like to play it? 

 

Thanks :)

I personally like the 268. I use it as a sniper (has not enough armor to play it like the 268-4). It has good firerate and accuracy, the goldammo heat at 395 allmost pens allways (268-4 can be penned anywhere). I play it regularly next to the Strv103b.

Still at the obj 704 (which I dont enjoy). Played the 268 in a friends account, didnt like it much. I remember back in the day the BL-10 was still a thing in the ISU 152, most veterans encouraged me to stay at t8 of that line.

I still think it is one of the underperforming t10s.

I'm still at 704 (wich I like a lot, playing it as an assault gun) and have to say that, after comparing 704 and 268 on tanks.gg I may like 268 even more. It's superior in almost everything except in dispersion on moving and traverse (0.2 vs 0.18 for 704), gun elevation (15/-5 vs 18/-6) and engine health (360 vs 370).

Don't really undestand why those stats should be worst, but I hope it would't kill the tank in comparison to 704...

I like the 268. It is fairly mobile. The 750 alpha means you can trade very nicely. However, the shell speed is slow. As a sniper it is a horrible tank that requires a lot of practice. It is a medium range support tank and a late game cleaning machine. Most people will tell you it is bad. It isn't, it is quietly balanced in what it does. However, with the 268-4 running around, the old 268 looks a bit... old and tired. Even so, if you want to, you can make it work. It may just be a bit more work to do so.
