So we finally came around to the weakest of the 3 rewards, quite amazing as it is a Ruski tank though.

I would rather pick 112 or WZ111 then this. 

 

No thanks, pass. 

Bring back premiums next year guys, i took STA2 which turn to be very underrated tank, and emil 1957 and i enjoy it in the frontline.

For the love of God, buff this pile of trash. I'm just a mediocre player, but Obj 777v2 is so abysmal, that even Chinese heavy laughs at it.

258 mm frontal turret base armor (with loping closer to 300). T 30 pens no problem, with standard ammo.

I like this tank..and picked it up..Ofc it just like normal tier IX Soviet heavy,and i have all but dual barrel tier IX Soviet tanks at my garage,so i know how to play whit this tank..It is really well balanced and thats why i picked it up(don`t like OP tanks at all..i have couple them at my garage..and they stay there for a reason.) Turret is not great,but it work just fine..like this tank all round does..Great work WG i hope that all new tanks are balanced like this at the future..

I think this is the most solid one, because it can train crews for so many different tank classes, and isn't a really bad tank by itself. You guys either just have poor luck or something to do with your skill.

I think I will pick up the Chaffer 4 in the Steel Hunter, though.

AE Phase I is just meh.

Hmm..T30 should pene all tanks turrets in this game..whitout premium ammo..object 777 is really made like it should..if it had 350mm turret from front..it would destroy the tank..

It could at least have a stronger turret armour beside the weak cheeks. If you fire premium, you get 60% chance to pen the turret if you miss the weakspot. And/or 50 km/h speed/greatly improved acceleration and manouverability.

I took the Char, purely because I already had the Phase and have nearly 24k bonds. 3k more isn't much use to me, and won't buy much in the bond shop. I'm still waiting for the new bond shop tanks that they promised us that never came.

Played 33 games so far on 777 and I can say that the tank is actually better then it looks on paper.

Its kind of mobile for a heavy tank. Comparable to the Amx M4 51. 

Decent in sidescraping. Armor will bounce a lot, only the flat 280mm left und right of the gun can be sometimes frustrating against high pen/heat rounds.

The gun is pretty average. Feels sluggish on lower range but can actually hit a lot while moving and turning. Got mine down to 10,5s reload which is ok.

Imo its as good or even better then Ae Phase 1.

 

*Edit Note, the high of the tank is pretty low. Keep in mind that it´s not always possible to use it on specific positions such as windows on maps as Kharkow or Himmels. The altitude of your gun isn´t high enough.

They said it will come with next ranked battle season
