This happens to many of the speeding LTs that I snipe at, good lead and direct hit, but zero damage and not even a detrack :(

It is such a sneaky tenk because if you're used to fighting IS-3s (and they are very common) any good player knows that you need to avoid shooting the side armour and instead shoot the track area if you want to pen the side. However this is of course reversed with the OBJ 257 whereby if you shoot the track area, lolnopen and instead you need to shoot the side armour. 

 

I imagine even good players get caught out by this semi-regularly and it's such an idiot-proof tank that even I do well in mine and I suck in tier 9s (seriously, look at my stats in the 257 compared to my other high tiers).

Yeah it's still hilarious that WG decided to implement a Russian tank with a completely reversed side-profile from all other Russian tanks.

A tank where shooting between the tracks is a ricochet and in the side-amour above the tracks is a guaranteed penetration, exactly the other way around from IS-3's and the like.

Strange that you get more credits and experience without Premium than with Premium.... I want my premium money back...

 

And just wait to the weekends and marathons where nobody misses the shot between the tracks and the spaced armour....

I wouldn't call 190mm of effective side armour a "guaranteed penetration", especially for lower tiers.

It's the state of the game now, nothing to be proud of but in fact it's what's killing the game.

In theory... In practice, shots you aim in that part goes anywhere but in that part of tank...
