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]

This main battle tank prototype was developed by the Soviet Union to update its existing fleet with a new line of vehicles. Developed during the 1950’s, the vehicle was a radical departure from previous Soviet designs, with a more compact engine as well as a lighter frame. While the prototype itself did not enter production, the design served as the basis for the Object 432, which inspired the creation of the T-64 in 1966.

Variants[edit | edit source]

  • Object 430 - with Special Winter Camo
