Let's ignore the absolutely cringeworthy and somewhat insulting slogan WGs Marketing Department chose as header on the portal, i.e. 'The Object 244 invades Europe'. :facepalm:

I guess someone very patriotic made his usual XXL Cup of tea with a shot Vodka and was all out of tea.

Happens i guess, after 2 or 3 bottles of Vodka, everyone might get a sudden rush of $hit to the brain.

That's not the subject of this thread tho, but as long you guys stay on topic, i don't mind if you comment on that too. ^^

 

So, did anyone buy the 'invader'?

How is it? It's more expensive then the HT No6, and without a doubt better because russian. 

But how much better? What does the stats say about strengths and weaknesses? Worth a buy? 

 

Thx!

Have no real problem about the slogan. It's a war game, so invading sounds on spot to me.

 

The tank itself looks a more armoured Tiger131 with worst DPM, alpha and penetration. May have its finest hour but doubt it will be that strong. I can probably eat it alive with T-150.

 

Edit

131 can even go hulldown when top tier. This thing can't.

It's o-kay... a baby IS, mobility not good

 

If you want an exciting entertaining T6 premium save your munny and get the Thunderbolt

 

Gun handling is pretty good

5 degrees gun depression,that is going to make you depressed for sure, seeing as I cannot make the T 34 work for me, I would avoid this like crazy, but your money,.....

You may jest, but IMHO Tiger 131 or the Japanesee Tiger are pretty good.

 

Better than the tier 7 Tiger.

 

No, I am not drugs.

The obj 244 looks like IS-2 downgrade version.

LFP and driver hatch are weackspots being 100mm instead of 120mm. There is also a 90mm commander hatch.

Basically a tier 6 IS in which you will never see tier 8 and get to bully tier 5 and i think tier 4 (unless thats changed) tanks.

 

Sounds fine.

saw one play this morning, pretty sure it was someone that posts here occasionally but my memory for names isn't good.    They got High calibur and came first in the team.  It may be that people are not used to it yet.  but it seemed to move ok. looked like a tougher kv-85 type tank in terms of gameplay..  It may be that our team made it look good cos I came 2nd in my T6 Skoda.  so not sure if I played well or my team made us look good ;)

If you over angle the tonk a bit it can be pretty bouncy, handy for weeding out campers

Doesn't inspire me to depart with any cash.

180 Alpha vs 300 Alpha on the T-150

180 Alpha vs a KV2 - I'd 100% trade 180 damage to put a 152mm HE shell under it's FP

 

Does it meet T7's and T8's - I'd hope not.

You don't need to invade the WHOLE of Europe, just Crimea and Ukraine....  (for now)

The way I see it:

 T-34 85M is an excellent balance between speed, armour, gun handling etc. Whereas this thing swaps speed for some more armour, no good in my eyes as people just press 2 if they bounce or even straight away.

Closed wallet this time, although I know nothing as I bought a Panther 8.8 last week with Rewards and Weekend Discount. I even enjoy playing it :amazed:

Stupid over armoured tank designed to encourage more use of prem ammo at low tiers and drain credits / boost premium time sales to fund credits.

Are you confusing it withe something else? It's not over armoured at all, most of the front you can pen with like 130 pen, you can go right through the turret front reliably with about 110 pen.

Without normalization LFP is 120mm effective, Driver hatch is 115mm effective, most of turret front is around than 105mm effective and there is a 90mm cupola.

Guess the only on having trouble penetrating this tanks will be stock tier 5 and some tier 4 like the AMX40. But those tanks struggle against most of tier 6 HT in any case, and many of those HT have far better alpha than 180...

I can only presume he has 'Objectitus', saw it was a Russian 'Object' tank and presumed the worst.
