I review the Object 430, a tier 9 Russian medium tank in World of Tanks (WoT), with replays of tier 9 Himmelsdorf and tier 10 Overlord battles.
The Object 430 has inverted-angled side hull armor, and this allows the tank to brawl very effectively with sidescraping technique. The tank can also play the vision game thanks to its high camouflage, although the gun’s poor accuracy limits its sniping potential.
Strengths and Weaknesses
+ Excellent HP (1800)
+ Excellent turret protection
+ Excellent camouflage (~36 with Camo + BIA skills)
+ Side hull armor is angled, very bouncey when sidescraping
+ Good alpha (390)
+ Good frontal hull armor (~200mm effective)
+ Low profile
+ High caliber gun (122mm) overmatches 40mm armor
– Very poor gun depression (-5)
– Poor accuracy (0.42 base)
– Long aim time (2.4 base)
– Low top speed (50)
– Lackluster acceleration
– Very poor view range (380)
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.
