Not sure if it will actualy replace Obj 263 or it will just be added as second tier X. PC has removed SU-122-54, but Console hates that, so we may have something similar to Brit TD line, where Badger will be added to the to Tortoise line as a second TD. In that case some 250-ish k of XP (on SU-122-54) would be advisable.

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

From what I've seen, it can be used as a heavy tank, since it has turret, but you're right about OPAF part. I would advise caution when it comes to stats on Console...Nerf looks like a strong option here.

That's ridiculous. For people that have the 263, regardless if they keep the 122-54, when the 263 gets the T9 treatment just add it alongside and still give the free 268v4. Hopefully they clear this up before the update goes live

No turret on 268v4. It's a castmate TD.

Oh, I was sure that it had turret, but I've watched some vids really long time ago.

The Object 268 Version 5 has a turret, the Version 4 does not.

WoTwiki lists a 24° gun arc. That'd be a small af turret

I think SU-122-54 stays (PC removed it, same as Waffle and Deathstar), so I don't know what would happen with Obj 263 other than staying tier X.

They could just downtier it and have two t9 tds that lead to the 268v4

My bad, I was sure it had turret but obviously not. I've watched it on some PC videos (QB perhaps) and for some reason it stayed in my memory as turreted, but still opaf.

They could just remove the SU-122-54 and make it into a tier VIII premium with similar stats to that Chinese thing.

It could also be somewhat complicated to actually pull off, so in this case I would let them off. 

 

If they give me my Autoloading Tiger, that is.
