Hello Commanders,

The Object 777 Version II, a Soviet tier IX heavy non-researchable tank, is now entering the Supertest.

The most attentive players probably know that this vehicle has been around in World of Tanks since 2015 and is a non-researchable Tier X heavy tank. 

Okay, so what is the Object 777 Version II at Tier IX, what is it like?

It’s a mobile tank with a low profile, well-sloped side armor, and a menacing 122-mm gun, the М62-Т2. You'd think it has everything to dominate the battlefield! 

 

However, The Object 777 Version II has poor accuracy, low hull traverse, and turret traverse speed, mediocre gun depression angles (-5°;) and low DPM. In addition, due to the small size of the vehicle, penetrating shells can cause serious damage to Crew members and its modules. Given all of the above, The Object 777 Version II is best suited for close combat, in the thick of battle, on locations with more or less flat terrain.

 

Note: the characteristics of the vehicle are not final and are subject to change after the Supertest. The tank is still being tuned.

Please don't tell me this is the tier 9 reward vehicle for Frontline. Visually the tank looks cool, but that's about it. Stat-vise it's literally a T-10 with better armor but worse everything else. If this is the FL reward tank, I'm not gonna grind for it, UNLESS it has increased credit multiplier akin to premium tanks. No thanks.

 

That being said, I wouldn't mind if this tank was part of the upcoming bond shop.

I hope this is not the tier 9 reward from the FL, looks worse than T-10 also it's russian wow that is new Kappa...

On the other hand if the gun is not completely garbage it might be interesting...

Wasnt the fronline reward tank a Tier IX TD?

 

The Ranked battles winners should also get a tier IX, so maybe it that one.-

No one said it will be a td, just a "unique" tank.

Psst, this isn't the FL reward. Don't tell anyone! :hiding:

 

A pretty tank though but i'd prefer if its role is more defined through the stats because now its gun is very similar to the 257 with good armor and okay mobility. Still not distinct enough from the 257/T-10/STI tier 9 heavies!

Kinda odd if it isn't the FL reward, what else could it be for? It seems too generic and dull for the bond shop since it is in essence just a reskinned T-10, and I'm not sure what else they could do with a standalone t9 heavy.

Ranked probably but could be for the bond shop too.

doubt they would do the ranked battle tank first as frontline tank will be available first and seeing as its already started people should know what they are putting so much time into grinding for

Just what this game needs - another Russian (premium) HT!

 

Honestly, I dont believe its for FL (and neither are the two T9 TDs). WG have stated that the FL T9 reward tank was not in the gamefiles yet and would be built from '0'. This is a downtiered Obj.777 - a tank that has existed in the gamefiles already, and so to me, that doesnt qualify as 'being built from 0'.

 

Also agreed with others that I hope we get to find out what the actual T9 FL reward tank will be that some of us are grinding for, especially with summer coming on. Always a tricky period whether its worth continuing our time or slow down, enjoy the benefits along the way, get the Emil 1951 and spend the rest of the prestige points on bonds.

They didn't confirm this is a completely new tank for FL. But they have said that for the reward of ranked battle.

Well they said that it will be a "unique tier 9 tank" for FL and that it will be a completely new tank, also why would they make a new tank for ranked but not for FL, that would not make to much sense.

I just quoted what Wargaming said. I also think that the reward for FL are gonna be completely new but the object 777 is new if you are not a player who read supertest news. We'll see later.
