If you believed Wargaming was done adjusting branches, guess again! This time it’s the Object 263 Tank Destroyer branch that will get modified.
Not many players have the Object 263 in the garage, so Wargaming has decided to tune it up, in the hopes of making it more attractive. But don’t think you are getting yet another free Tier X, Wargaming will adjust this branch the same way they are doing with Object 430.
SU-101M will be removed from the game, while Object 263, SU-122-54 and SU-101 will all move one Tier down, and at Tier X we will get the brand new Object 268 Version 4. This vehicle will feature excellent frontal armour, high alpha damage and penetration values, but mediocre gun parameters, making it a medium/close combat tank, so don’t expect to snipe your enemies from 400 meters unless you think you are very lucky.
Fast in straight lines, the tank will get anywhere you want quickly, as long as you don’t turn. As soon as you start turning, the speed drops quickly, so don’t expect great mobility from it and plan ahead of you want to get somewhere quick. With these characteristics, the tank will play nice as a support role.
Please note, these characteristics are not final and subject to change.
