Supertest: Object 259A Soviet Tier VIII Heavy Tank

2 min read

The Object 259a, a Soviet Tier VIII heavy tank, is coming to the closed Supertest. Continuing the trend at the end of 2021, Wargaming is now creating Tier VIII Premium vehicles from prototype versions of vehicles at Tier X. The K2 heavy tank is a down tiered IS-4 and now we have Object 259A, a down tiered Object 260, which at the end of the day is the IS-7 prototype!

The Object 259a has a characteristic feature typical of all IS-7 prototypes—a pike nose. Its frontal hull armour reaches 110 mm. The tank’s turret is streamlined, cast, with frontal armour of 260 mm. The vehicle has 1,450 hit points. Maximum speed—60 km/h, specific power—15 h.p./t, view range—380 m.

The tank is armed with a 122 mm gun with an average damage per shot of 420 hit points. The standard APCR shell penetrates 233 mm of armour, while the special HEAT shell penetrates 285 mm. The aiming time of the gun is 3.2 s, reload time is 15 s, and dispersion is 0.42 m.

Object 259a is a frontline heavy tank. Thanks to its good armour and relatively good manoeuvrability, the vehicle can occupy advantageous positions and engage in successful positional combat. Also, keep in mind that the gun’s accuracy won’t let you fire effectively from long range.

All characteristics are with a crew trained to 100% and subject to change before the final release.
