Here is the final of three vehicles added into the game files with last night's micropatch -- the Object 279 (early), a tier X Soviet heavy tank (formerly known as the Object 726). As with the previous two articles, read on to see the current stats of the vehicle, as well as (of course) the finished visual model for this behemoth of a vehicle.
USSR, Tier X Heavy Tank, Premium / Special?
Description: An early variant of a blueprint project of a high crossing capacity heavy tank with a new configuration scheme. Developed in 1947–1948 by L. S. Troyanov. This vehicle was to feature a low four-track engine, mounted on longitudinal beams that also served as fuel tanks, considerably reducing the chance of fire. These solutions provided high crossing capacity and survivability: the tank could continue moving even with destroyed tracks. The placement of the hull above the suspension allowed for large fighting compartment, and as result, increased ammunition and autoloader mechanism for high rate of fire. A functional prototype was manufactured in 1948.
Cannon: 122 mm M62-T2A
