Pros and cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Special tank, so it makes extra credits
  • Very high HEAT penetration, only beaten by the Leopard 1 and T-62
  • Good rate of fire
  • Very flat with a thick turret; it can hull-down in most types of cover
  • Well armored and sloped upper glacis
  • Good accuracy for an MBT
  • Extremely high turret traverse, only beaten by the Leopard 1
  • The ICE version comes with a level 5 crew

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Worse damage per shot of all tier 3 MBTs
  • Relatively poor AP ammo
  • Very poor gun depression
  • Very short size can make it difficult to shoot over some types of cover
  • Weak lower glacis, like most Soviet tanks
  • Poor acceleration and sluggish hull traverse

The all-steel Object 430 has a well-rounded turret; however, its multiple improvements did not increase battlefield survivability beyond that of the T-55 series it was slated to replace. Despite this, elements were borrowed for future successful prototypes.

History[edit | edit source]

Class: Medium Tank (Prototype)
Developed: 1953-1956
Service: N/A
Vehicles Built: 5
Operators: N/A

The Object 430 was a T-64 predecessor and an attempt to build a worthy successor to the legendary T-54 Medium Tank for Soviet use. It has all the properties of a classic Soviet early MBT – sloped frontal armor, round cast turret, low silhouette and a powerful upgraded 100mm rifled gun. Several prototypes were built in the late 1950s but despite being an excellent tank in its own right, the project was ultimately cancelled because it did not represent a significant enough upgrade over the T-54.

Variants[edit | edit source]
