The coveted Object 252 is finally here! As a part of Update 9.17.1, Wargaming released the Object 252, a Tier 8 Soviet Premium heavy tank. We’ve compiled a list of stats for the Object 252 so that you can know what to expect from this tank before making a purchase.
There are actually two versions of this tank in the Premium shop: the standard Object 252, and the Object 252 Defender. The latter comes with an accordion strapped to the back of the turret, as well as a stylish camouflage pattern boasting the colors of Mother Russia that boosts the Concealment stats for the Defender variant. Other than a difference in Concealment values, the two variants are statistically identical.
The two Object 252 variants each have a Loaded and Ultimate bundle option in the World of Tanks Premium Shop for those who wanted to purchase additional Gold and in-game items when buying this new tank. The discounted Object 252 bundles will be available in the Premium Shop until about mid-March.
