[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

Object 268 Version 4


X

AnnoR149_Object_268_4.png

6100000

The Object 268 Version 4 is a Soviet tier 10 tank destroyer.

The Object 730 Version 4 was intended as another SPG project developed on the basis of the T-10 (Object 730) tank by December 18, 1952. At the same time, the concept project featured the Object 268 designation. The project allowed for a gun to be mounted in a closed stationary cabin placed in the rear of the hull. The project was canceled because a complex modification of the Object 730 hull was required.

Replaced Object 263's position in 9.22 patch. The Object 268 Version 4 (or shortly called "268 V4") generates a considerable amount of controversy about rapid-firing Soviet tank destroyers line by turned the whole line into slow-firing, high alpha "Assault Gun".

However the Object 268 Version 4 vehicle takes the definition of "Assault Gun" to the whole new level, it has an insane combination of armor and speed that makes up this vehicle. It can lead a charge to enemy front, take several hits from enemy, counter them with 152mm boomstick, or even ram enemies with its medium tank speed and heavy tank weight.

However, it still suffers from downsides shared with most of Soviet tanks, poor accuracy and low rate of fire. It needs several allies to cover its weak sides.

The Object 268 Version 4 marks the end of its Soviet tank destroyer line.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:

- Very strong frontal armor with little to no weakspots

- Speaking about its "weakspots", it has two small, hard to hit weakspots at rangefider and lower-lower plate. The rangerfinder has only 30mm worse effective armor than the frontal plate, which is 280-310mm effective.

- Very good engine power and top speed, can easily keep up with mediums and is excellent at pushing

- Very good reverse speed makes it harder to flank than it seems

- High alpha damage and good penetration

- Very low bloom when moving for a TD and quick aim time, can snap shots rather effectively

- High HP pool

- Insane ramming capabilities with high speed, very thick frontal armor, and weight

- Can push others easily around due to it's incredible engine power and mass

- For a tank with such armor, the camo rating is fairly good

- With bonds optics 445m+ viewrange


Cons:

- Poor accuracy and gun depression

- Low rate of fire and DPM

- Poor traverse speed; turns like a boat

- Upper plate is only 100mm thick, can be troublesome when facehugging tall tanks

Historical Info

The Object 268 version 4 is an SPG developed from the base of the Object 730, which itself later became the T-10M.


Armament

The initial armament chosen for what became the Object 268 was the 152mm M53 gun. This gun had a muzzle velocity of 760m/s and was developed by factory #172's design bureau in parallel with the shorter 152mm M31 and M48, both of which were planned for earlier heavy self-propelled guns but ended up cancelled and never built. Unlike them, the M53 was built along with its SPG, the Object 116 aka the SU-152P, in 1948. The vehicle's trials showed that it was not accurate enough to meet specifications, and so was rejected for production. The vehicle itself was preserved and can be seen in Patriot Park.

The M53 cannon was used as a basis for a new SPG project, which was later designated the Object 268. According to preliminary calculations, the muzzle velocity of its shells would be 740 m/s. The M53 was mixed with some parts from the M62-T 122 mm tank gun. The overall mass of this system with no official name was 5100 kg.

Version 2

Version #2 of the new SPG had a rear fighting compartment, which allowed the reduction of the hull length of 6675 mm. Since the entire from of the vehicle was taken by the engine and transmission, the driver sat in the fighting compartment, to the right. The driver's visibility with this layout was not great.

These inconveniences were balanced out by the relatively short overhang of the barrel, only 2300 mm. The front of the casemate was 150-180 mm thick, the sides were 90 mm thick. The upper front plate was only 75 mm thick, but sloped at 75 degrees. The vehicle was well protected. The crew consisted of four men. In order to ease the loader's job, shells were stored in a loading drum behind the gun.

The draft of this variant, alongside the draft of the turreted Version 3, was created on April 25, 1952. It should be noted that these were created before the final draft of the tactical-technical requirements was finished, and they never officially carried the 268 index.

Version 4

The redesigned version of the 2nd variant which was indexed #4 was finished on December 18th, 1952. This design already had the index 268, and the chief designer was listed as Zh.Ya. Kotin. Externally, the 4th variant was similar to the 2nd, but the changes were significant.

First of all, the length of the hull was increased to 6900 mm, almost the same as on the Object 730. The length of the barrel overhang was reduced by 150 mm. The sloped rear of the casemate was straightened out, which increased the available size. These changes were necessary, as the new technical requirements were for a crew of 5.

The new crew member was a second loader, positioned behind the commander. The commander received a new cupola with a rangefinder and a machinegun with a curved barrel. The driver's station was redesigned, and he received new observation devices. The loading drum was left alone, but the project authors noted that the increased fighting compartment size meant that an even more powerful gun could be used. In parallel with the increased fighting compartment size, the armour protection was increased. The lower front plate was thickened to 160 mm. The front of the casemate stayed at 180 mm, but 160 mm thick cheeks were positioned at a sharp angle.The mass of the vehicle remained under 50 tons.

In January 1953, Variant 4, along with Variant 5 (which itself was a modified version of Variant 3), were submitted to the GBTU Scientific-Technical Committee and Ministry of Transport and Heavy Machinebuilding. After studying them, member of the committee decided that both projects required substantial changes to the hull of the T-10M that the SPG's were built off of and were cancelled. The only Object 268 that did end up being built was not ready until 1956, using the newer and considerably shorter (but with about the same muzzle velocity) 152mm M64.

Historical Accuracy Errata

The following are consensus errors or inconsistencies which have been identified with the configuration of the vehicle in question and conflict with information available on the public record. The causes for these divergences in the game are normally not disclosed and may be rooted in game balance.

* The frontal armor of the in-game Object 268 Version 4 is much stronger than its real-life specifications, which had a maximum frontal armor thickness of 180mm.
  • The in-game Object 268 Version 4 is 75 tons, way over the 50 tons that was planned. This is likely a reference to how the in-game version has much more armor.
