With regards to the 30% discount on the VIII to X tier, do we still get the 16th Anniversary 15% discount on top too???

Like the write up of the FV , all spot on apart from the fact the gun kinda sucks too. Accuracy and reload is great but it suffers when it comes to penetration against other tier x's . The gun is superb when its fitted to the Conqueror and when you spend all that exp and credits to move up to the FV and tier x it feels like a huge let down.

Well, that explains a lot, especially the hits without damage.

It has some of the best Tier X Heavy penetration in the game plus it gets APCR I believe, and at-least you don't have to deal with 235 like on the E 100. But then the upside with the E 100 is that you get great armour, however I'd argue that the FV is a better side scraper since its turret is smaller and further back on the hull. Therefore you don't have to expose as much of your tank.

Is it just me, or is the discount usually 15%, and the income bonus 30%. Don't get me wrong, 1.8 mill credits off is something I'm not complaining about, just a bit dubious.

I was wondering why it's only 15% more income. Until now it was 30%.

I am a very disapointed becouse you change this perfect tank! This tank is best heavy tenk in game ( 50b and t57 dont count) .. It is a beast!! British beast, and only problem is why they change it becouse noobs dont know to play it and they write protest supports, so and so, ask every better player and everybody will tell that this tank is great! I play with friends in platoon 3x fv, that is brutal! I will misss this tank, i enyoj to play it

FV is great but it needs to be in the right hands. I think the problem is that it is actually a tiered-up Conqueror, but it does everything just a bit better. The Conqueror is awesome, which means an improved Conqueror is always welcome. But slightly more buffed armor would be nice.

And those people complaining it is bad just don't have the right hands, the FV can be a tough nut to crack.

But since I never really liked driving the FV215b, since I played other tier 10 heavies, I think us getting a Chieftain would be nice as well.

 Im a bit scared about chieftain, i hope it will be good like fv.. If u know how to use fv and use his turret and gun, you crush everything

So if you grind through and get the FV now, when it goes, do you get given the new tier ten instead ?

I agree, the 215b is a beast of a tank... Sure the hull is paper and you get crew and equipment knocked out and put on fire a lot when hit there, but when you go hull down it's a very dangerous tank. Turret armor is excellent and with small weakspots. Not only does it reload faster than any other non-auto tier 10 heavy tank, it also reloads faster than certain tier 10 mediums. It also got a rather nice health pool. :)
