I review the Object 140, a tier 10 Russian medium tank in World of Tanks (WoT), with replays of Fisherman’s Bay and Highway battles.
About 4-5 years ago, the 140 was THE meta medium tank, but even with the powercreep over the past several years, it’s still a good tank. The combination of DPM, gun handling, vision, and functional armor make this a fun tank to play.
Strengths and Weaknesses
+ Excellent DPM (over 3k base)
+ Excellent gun handling
+ Excellent turret protection
+ Good camouflage (over 32 with Concealment and BIA)
+ Good mobility
+ Side hull armor is sloped and thick enough (57mm or 80mm) to prevent greater-than-triple overmatch when sidescraping
+ Laser shell velocity (1535)
+ Low profile
– Poor gun depression (-6), albeit better than the T-62A and Obj 430U
– Cupolas are weak spots, albeit small in size, and the roof can be overmatched (45mm)
– Frontal hull armor is not strong enough to reliably bounce
– Low alpha (320)
I talk through how I’m reading the battle as it unfolds and discuss key decisions and mistakes. My hope is that these videos meaningfully help players improve their gameplay.
