Hi tankers,

 

Today we start the Supertest of the Object 260 and the T 55A. Our intention is to make these vehicles up to date again. Their status demands that they should play as reward tanks earned by performing hard and complex tasks. The T 55A will receive improved turret armor, close to the one that the Soviet T-54 has after the HD update. The gun will gain in firepower and in parameters, that are responsible for enjoyable play. The tank’s mobility will increase, too.

The Object 260 will become tougher and meaner. The turret protection will be bolstered (first of all, in the gun mantlet's area). We’ll also increase the firepower; improved stabilization and rate of fire will make a nice bonus for those who managed to achieve the top reward of the personal missions Season one.

The stats are not final and may change depending on Supertest results and feedback. Please follow the news and best of luck in every battle!

I'm not seeing the "firepower" improvement in those T55A stats. Or do you mean the minor gunhandling buffs with that?

Please also buff the T-55A's penetration. It's really not enjoyable to have to spend 100k credits each game just because the standard ammo doesn't go through anything.

Yes I agree. T54 has 219 pen, it should have same pen value.

I like all the changes but for Obj 260 they should buff Ammo capacity and mobility.

The T 55A should have better stock penetration.

Please give it the UBR-412P APCR round, with at least 230mm, or something to that effect.

The real T-55A had ridiculous APFSDS rounds.

 

The T 55A is not a brawler and it should perform better as a sniper. So give it a round with equivalent penetration to the T-54's 219, but increase the velocity.

So an APCR round would be perfect, more flat pen and velocity but worse normalisation.

 

In lieu of this, give it a 650hp engine, which will be enough.

super good news :) 

just a few mentions....add more hp to 260(2400hp) and also increase roof armor, not only cupolas. i would rather have a non-overmatchable roof, than tougher cupolas

but still, congrats on initiative with these tanks

with the help of the increased mobility, turret rotation dispersion factor and aim time the T 55A will be allowed to flank it's opponents in a better way, without having to be afraid of enemy fire due to the increased turret armor

There are so many corridor maps still in the game, so flanking is not always possible until in the end of the game. If you really want to buff this tank, then it needs higher raw penetration on its standard rounds. For players that don't use premium ammo, this tank is helpless against most 9 and 10s :(

I don't understand the purpose of posting these on the forums when none of the comments ever seem to get taken into account.

Almost everyone is telling you it needs an APCR round as default.

All the changes for T55A are great but T54 have a better hull armor 120mm (T55A 100m) and better penetration at lest one of these two give it to T55A (a buff to hull armor or a better AP penetraction).

For Obj 260 need a engine power buff , ammo capacity ,Gun depression and more Health

T28 has OP armor when you know how to use it..

Stug IV hasn't a gun that good. But it's still good enouph.. So I don't see any reasons.

StuG IV is absolute trash. It has no redeeming qualities. T28 was bearable and I sold both of them.

The only tank in that series worth playing for is the T 55A and even that is so bad that WG decided to finally buff it.

 

And I maintain with all my heart that it should get a 230mm pen APCR round and a 650hp engine.

Please consider that paying 80k a match to have a decent outcome is quite the antithesis to a reward experience!

 

RANT

I understand that it is not you who makes these decisions, but I would like to see something to convince me that WG cares at all about what their players who have paid them thousands in some cases, have considerable time and experience with the vehicles being discussed and have used their products for more than half a decade have to say. Because otherwise, I have to assume that Wargaming does not take our opinions into consideration.

Just played the T 55A again for a session. It does not need more than 650 horsepower, the ground resistances are excellent.

Move it down from 750 and please just give us the pen buff.

Really good changes. Two useless tanks become playable again. More hp and ammo for the obj 260 would be nice though.
