Wile grinding for the SU-100, I came across this little beast. Man, the top gun it seriousely overpowered. Being quite small, it can snipe very well. Also, the alpha is insane. You can one shot almost every tier 3 TD with HE.

Yeah. Quite easy to underestimate this TD. Even back during my early days I was just as amazed as you are about this TD. Except the part with HE as I used AP through and through.

And this began the concept of the German td line lol, no armour, massive gun and not-so-russian mobility...

Many people underestimate the tank and pass it quickly. But I just fount a gem in low tier hell. It is extremely fun to play, especially when HEing those nasty T82s.

If you are trying to get 268, SU85B is something you should not play to much or get use to. SU85B is very manoeuvrable - quite a fair bit more so than 268. Also don’t snipe from hillsides as your gun elevation is crap. At SU-100:

if you want the Obj 263 line then use to the 100mm

if you want the Obj 268 line then use the 122mm

Also ISU sucks so good luck.

I'm not particularly interested in the Obj. 268. Much more prefer the 263. The 268 is just too normal. It has an average 152mm gun for a tier 10 TD and average armour and mobility. The 263 is much more unique in terms of gameplay. It's called the YOLO wagon for a reason. Also, the appearence of the 263 is much more attractive to me. I used both guns on the SU-100 before. Overall at tier 6, derping around with the 122mm is much more fun than using the 100mm. If I go up the 263 line, there will be plenty of times where I can use low alpha accurate guns. Btw, the SU-85B is quite underestimated as a "clubwagon". Especially against tier 3 tanks, it can do extreme amounts of damage. Having high HE penetration, it can go through most tier 3 tanks with HE. The gun is absolutely superb and the mobility is brilliant. I guess most newcomers at low tiers pass the tank because it has very weak armour and those players do not know how to play those glasscannons. It kind of feels like the low tier version of the Rhm,

Obj 263 is quite easy to beat in a 1vs1 and I never seem to have issues fighting with them. Currently I’m on SU-101 in the grind. 

Obj 268 always seems to be able to pen the 263 whilst I often get bounces fighting 263. That’s why I want both to actually have a firm idea. However, 263 is often said to be worse and so far that seems 100% true to me.
