430U, just better than the IS-7 at everything really.

Obj 430U is a better IS-7 and 277.

It has the overall armour and DPM, also don't forget the mobility and camo rating.

It's a heavy meduim that can bully HTs and  especially MTs. :)

If I may, both are good with the IS7 being your traditional heavy brawler but I think the 430U is probably the strongest med in the game. It can brawl or shoot & scoot in equal measure.  I like them both but the 430U is my 'go to' tier 10 for the Brawl missions and I love it.  That's just my opinion of course and I'm sure, they'll be some who will say the IS7 but depends very much on what you like to play.  For me med then heavies in that order.

No it's not, the times you get to position yourself like you can in IS-7 are rare. IS-7 is much less punishing and better against clickers and other HE guns

Depends what playstyle you like and do well in. 430U is better but IS-7 is still the ultimate new player tank, it was my first tier X tank and still I did not do so bad in it, in 430U in other hand I would had sucked.

Object 430U is both the better choice and more similar in terms of playstyle.

It actually outshines the 277 too, that should tell you how crazy that tank is. :)

Both require a huge amount of golds of u want to properly run them because of the lack of ap penetration but 430u is much more flexible in game style

The 430U is a heavy medium, the 277 is a medium heavy. Confused? Me too. I've done pretty well in the 430U but always got shocking teams so far (3731 average damage, 3206 WN8, 40% winrate... and I think those wins were carries!) Only 15 games in but I don't dare press battle anymore). I've just bought the 277, hoping it hasn't also got a gypsy curse on it. I imagine they'll play very similarly.

Had exactly same thought not so long ago and I went for 430U.

 

Good tank, almost meh, with 4-perk crew and usual pew-pew equipment.

In X-only you get penned by everything.

No matter how good your performance is, you lose money in almost every round (even with regular ammo and sometimes even with Prem account).

 

Love my (tier VIII) T-44-100 far more.

430U, no question. I just tried out is7 after years again... Compared to 277&5a its so underperforming. If you find stronk hulldown position it's still awesome but tbh, which Russian tank isn't?
