i've had a guy in my team driving a Strv 81, his name was WoT_IMF16. anyway he drowned in the 1st minute of the game. i guess wg is going to add this medium in the swedish line. according to wikipedia,  Strv 81 is the Swedish Army designation for both the initial 80 Mk 3 Centurions (20 pdr gun) and the 1955 purchase of 160 Mk 5 Centurions, all with Imperial instrumentation, Swedish radios, etc. 

after seeing the tank in the game, driven by a completly idiot, i checked tanks.gg and i was surprised to see that Strv 81 has better turret armour and some parts of the hull then the Centurion Mk. I that we have in the game. 

check the links: http://tanks.gg/tank...model?vm=visual

why keep adding premium tanks that are better then the normal tanks we already have in the game? :facepalm:

Why do people think British tanks are garbage because low tiers are crap? Try AX, 7/1,215b or conqueror.

Is that a test account or a press account? If it's a press account it could be understandable, as WG don't just give those only to CC's and other WoT Youtubers/streamers, but any random idiot, for proof go watch the Yogscast Wot videos.

Low tiers? You mean 4/5 of tanks up to tier 8?

 

CaX and 7/1 are average if anything, 215b can be very akward to play and it isnt as good as it used to be. Conqueror is indeed good and feels even better when its one of the better tier 9 heavies and majority of them are beasts. But thats just one tank that is actually great, the other being assumably Cromwell (and even that is probably too overrated). Then keep on kind there are whopping full lines of British tanks, soon 6 or even 7 if they happen to bring UK LT line which is one of the most strongest candidates as new line for this year, and the 2nd HT line was also rumored ar some point.

I hate Cromwell tbh. 7/1 is indeed average if you play it as standard tier 9 medium. Don't forget it's true name is Heshturion tho ;) 

And FV... Sure, chassis is a turd. But that gun tears enemies apart. I had a game on Paris where I downed a type 5 Heavy from 2900 to 0, while constantly turning my turret to protect my fellow Emil I against tanks rushing from other side. Sure, that type wasn't the brightest bulb in a bunch but it's still impressive for a tank that is considered bad. 

Of course stupid ammo capacity got me at the end

Maybe this Strv is (supposed to be) an amphibious model?

What's wrong with low tiers? Cruiser Mk II is like a tiny KV2.  Cruiser IV is one of the best tier 3 tanks. Matilda, Valentine and AT2 are completely OP when top tier. Cromwell is one of the best tier 6 mediums. Sure, some of the others are crap, but on average the British low tier tanks are OK. If you want bad low tier tanks try the French tech tree.

For the high tiers, other than those you mention, the Charioteer is also quite good and the AT15 may be boring, but it works fine.

If there is an anti-British bias, it's in the premium tanks. (One mediocre tier 8, one terrible and one mediocre tier 7. One good and one mediocre tier 6, a bad tier 5 a bad tier 4 etc)

Seems like this topic needs a comprehensible list of good british tonks.

 

(ignoring t1-5 and cancer since no one cares anyway)

 

Good british tonks: cromwell, conqueror

Tonks that are ok/balanced: CAX, achilles

Tonks that suck but one might argue not enough to NEED buffs: 215b, cent 7, cent 1, charioteer, comet, at7

Tonks that suck donkey balls and definitely need buffs: everything else

Although it's strongest point and only real advantage, the turret is negated by the OP HE shells on Type 4 and type 5's.

Because of the amount of time, effort and suffering it takes to get to those tanks.

 

Really, the British has one, maybe two good tanks below tier 8. I know Cromwell is one, then personal preference tends to point out the Firefly, Comet and Matilda.
