Can you lower down the WOT ingame tune next time?
Or don't play music while the dear fellow is explaining the inside of a tank..
It's annoying and disrespectful in my opinion.

Great video though!

If WoT was a sim, and this tank was put into it, it would be tier 11!

I can't wait for the update where they replace the FV215B with a chieftain prototype as a tier 10 heavy :Smile_Default:

Edit: forgot to say, awesome video as well, very informative. No-one can say that you don't know your stuff Challenger!

Great video Richard, I've been looking forward to this one!

I wouldn't like to find myself in the loaders position when that gun fires, due to recoil and stuff.
And just how efficient is the fume extractor? How many rounds could you fire before loader would get intoxicated and start seeing dragons or tooth fairies in the turret? ;)

That tank belongs in the game, not just a video. Fits the time frame, the gun is a 120 comparable to what the Americans have and it looks nice.

make it a third t10 researchable from either one of the other British t10 tanks.

Super vid, old chap!

(better than previous one)

I would love to have Chef on WoT!!

PS: why can commander override gun control over gunner? It's his job, isn't it?

I'm guessing in case of emergency if he spots higher priority target that needs to be eliminated immediately through his sight or if gunner is incapacitated, unable to make visual contact, outside taking a piss or w/e

I reckon the FV-215b is a placeholder. I reckon when the TDs come out, the FV-215b will be switched to the TD line, with a fixed turret and it's 183mm gun. I reckon the Chieftain will be the replacement tier 10 heavy.

Probably ;-) (I would guess that)
just Chall can get the best answer. (just God knows what are britons thinking about ;-) )

Yep, that's the only reason why I want to grind Brit heavy line, besides the mighty Conqueror  :Smile_blinky:

From the test server, I enjoyed the Conqueror more than the FV, but if having the FV means I will get a free top tier TD, I may go for it, but this is just my theory, not confirmed yet by WG, but if they did this, it would make a lot of sense. The FV get's it's intended 183mm gun. With the fixed turret, that does not make it overpowered, and we get a chieftain which really at this point I am surprise isn't already the top tier heavy. I can only assume they have not finished the chieftain, and that is the reason it is not yet in the game. Come to think of it actually...the FV with it's 183mm gun would still be rather OP. The jgpze-100's weakness is speed. The FV does not suffer that problem, but hey, I am not a dev. If all this will happen, they will find a way to make it work.
