Object 430

The Object 430 is a Soviet tier 10 medium tank.

A prototype of this medium tank was developed from 1953 through 1957 to replace the T-54. Soviet authorities wanted a tank with greater nuclear survivability and firepower, so in 1961 the project was discontinued in favor of the Object 432. Several prototypes of the vehicle were manufactured.

The Object 430 marks the end of its Soviet medium line.

Pros and Cons

Pros:

Very high damage per minute
Excellent camo rating, better than the Batchat 25 t
Highly sloped hull armor is respectable for a tier X medium and low profile for a medium tank
Good soft stats
Modules are quite tough, and rarely do you lose something valuable

Cons:

Turret is not as well-armored as its brothers, the armor zones are weaker, roof is very weak
Tied for the lowest average damage per shot for tier X meds at 320
Mediocre gun depression
Cannot take any hits from artillery

Performance

The Object 430 is very similar to its two brothers and plays like them, but is overall weaker. It sacrifices, accuracy, aim time, and turret armor for slightly improved hull armor and camo, along with the highest damage-per-minute of any Tier 10 medium tank. It is still a good tank, and very powerful in the hands of a skilled player.

Ideally you want to make use of the tank's decent turret armor and camo-sniping capability. Choose spots where the lack of gun depression won't hamper you and you can expose only your turret when firing. With its good speed, camo, and view range the tank is a serviceable scout and good flanker. Make sure to maximize your strengths and flex around the battlefield as needed.

In comparison to its two sister tanks, the Object 430 has the highest camouflage values, and best effective frontal hull armor.
