Hey you guys,

 

Sorry for the noobish question but with the recent buff of the T62A I don't see any reason to use the Object 140 anymore, is this correct?

 

And the weird thing is that if you look at the stats the Obj 140 still has a higher win rate, dpb, etc. Can anybody give me an explanation? I've looked over all the data, but I feel there is something that the data isn't telling me. Why does the obj have better stats even though it is inferior in terms of performance at the moment (at least on paper)?

The most probable explanation for that is everyone’s playing the t62a. Meaning there is a wide variety of players with different skills. Meanwhile the as 140 is inferior rn only experience players and unicums dare to drive it. Nothing to do with the paper stats, just who’s driving it.

Good explanation here. Only old timers who want a challenge are still playing it really.

62a is far better.

Obj 140 is still the better brawler. It has better hull armor. The upper plate is more steeply angled and the sides are a little thicker and curved instead of flat. It’s also faster. And it has AP rounds as standard which normalize better for more reliable penetration and lose less pen over long distances.

Haven't played the 140 but I have the 62. Great tank. The gun depression buff has helped it substantially. It has a strong turret, but weak hull armor. As others have said, the only people really playing the 140 are experienced players, which explains the better overall stats. Go with the 62, it's an awesome tank.

what tier 9 or 10 gun is 225 hull armor gonna block that 200 cant? mediums can also shoot right through the 140 turret without gold.

 

the t62 has 5 more pen and loses less pen over distance than the 140 as well. 62 also has more gun depression and a more accurate gun. they did the 140 dirty. real dirty. put the t62 dep back to -5 and buff 140 turret armor to not laughable levels.
