Development of the Object 268 was started in the summer of 1952 at the Kirov Plant, Leningrad, under the supervision of Joseph Kotin. The vehicle was developed on the basis of the T-10 heavy tank. A prototype was manufactured in 1956. The vehicle passed trials, but never saw mass production.

Performance

The Object 268 is the tier X Soviet Tank Destroyer. This beast has an astounding 303mm of standard AP penetration making it one of the highest penetrating gun, excluding end tier artillery vehicles and the FV215b (183), it also has quite a high rate of fire for the damage it can do, giving it the highest DPM for all tier X tank destroyers. Another noticeable feat of this tank is the extreme accuracy of the gun. However to balance this powerful gun, the 268's armor is rather poor, and only decent at best in the front, to help players though, it maintains the hallmark of Soviet TDs by having a very high camo rating, making difficult to detect. So people that are used to the play style of the ISU-152 will have no problem adapting to the Object 268. The biggest difference between the ISU-152 and Object 268 is the Object 268's much lower gun arc. This means that you will be moving your tank from side to side more often in the Object 268. The consequence of this movement is that you will not be able to take nearly as large an advantage of a Camouflage Net or Binocular telescope as you would in the ISU-152. The suggested equipment for the Object 268 is a Tank Gun Rammer, Coated Optics, and Improved Ventilation Class 3. However, you may wish to switch out Coated Optics with an Enhanced Gun Laying Drive based on how aggressively you use this tank.
