The Soviet heavy tank Object 777 Version II isn’t new and has been in the game files since 2015 as a Tier X vehicle,but that doesn’t mean Wargaming doesn’t have any plans for it! The Object 777 Version II, was down tiered to a Tier IX as a non-researchable tank and is now entering the Supertest.
Okay, so what is the Object 777 Version II at Tier IX, what is it like? It’s a mobile tank with a low profile, well-sloped side armour and a menacing 122-mm gun, the ?62-?2.
However, The Object 777 Version II has poor accuracy, low hull traverse and turret traverse speed, mediocre gun depression angles (-5°) and low DPM. In addition, due to the small size of the vehicle, penetrating shells can cause serious damage to Crew members and its modules.
Given all of the above, The Object 777 Version II is best suited for close combat, in the thick of battle, on locations with more or less flat terrain.
The vehicle will be a reward for either Frontlines or Ranked battles. Of course, the characteristics of the vehicle are still under revision and might change at any time. What do you think? Yet another Soviet heavy tank, to strong for it’s Tier? Let us know your thoughts down in the comment section.
Update: WOT Express and some of my sources confirmed the vehicle isn’t for Ranked Battles or Frontlines. Turns out, Wargaming has other plans that might include (wink, wink) bonds. Could this be one of the reasons why we didn’t get vehicles for Bonds in the shop?
