World of Tanks Supertest: Object 268 Version 4 Changes

Object 268 Version 4 has received some changes on Supertest. The vehicle was well received by Supertesters, but the Object 263 replacement has created a massive sh*tstorm across all servers.

It’s still unclear if Wargaming is going ahead with these changes, but according to the test, it became clear all vehicles tested are well suited for the game roles they where assigned. Statistic data shows a smooth progress from Tier VII to Tier X into an assault role. Object 268 Version 4 is better suited for an assault role, but it needed some changes to make it more effective and fun.

Please note, these characteristics are not final and subject to change.

      1. I’m aware its a real design, Yuri Pasholok wrote an article about the 268 developement which you can read translated here: http://tankarchives.blogspot.com.au/2016/09/the-last-soviet-heavy-tank-destroyers.html?m=1

        Basically it should only have 180mm of armor at the most on the front, the engine should also be that of the T-10.

        That’s a tier 9 TD at best and tier 7, 8 and 9 is the issue with the Obj 263 line.

        There’s nothing wrong with the 263, its unpopular because pf the line but WG clearly needed to bring this PoS to supertest for players to burst out to state the obvious to WG

  1. Are they kidding us? How is this tank simmilar to previous tanks? And how is it better than Obj 268 or current 263? The whole point is to get players to play this branch…. nobody will play for this s#it version of obj 268, obj 263 is more unique tank to play, it creates diversity to the gameplay which this game desperately needs…
