World of Tanks Supertest: Object 257 to Replace T-10

Wargaming announced another replacement, this time it will be the T-10, Tier IX from the Soviet heavy tank branch. This tank will be replaced by a vehicle that was on Supertest last year: Object 257 Heavy Tank.


Of course, all of you will ask why are they replacing it, and what will happen to the T-10. First, the replacement occurs because the T-10 never fitted the branch. In between the IS-3 and IS-7, two tanks where you can reliably use your armour and with an assault tank play style, you have the T-10, a glass heavy tank that plays more as a support role. With the replacement of this tank with Object 257, the branch will feel more natural to progress and will keep the same playstyle.

And what will happen to T-10 heavy tank? For now, Wargaming has ideas of re-introducing it as a Tier IX of a brand new mini-branch starting on the IS-3. This is not yet a final decision and Wargaming will share more information soon.
