FV201 (A45) is a rather good hulldown tank with that awesome gun handling and great RoF, but the top speed limits it too much.

It has good hp/t which gives it the ability to get to it's top speed [sluggish 31km/h], so... what if it got a top speed buff from 31km/h to 45km/h! :)

After that buff, even the name of the tank would make more sense.

 

In my opinion the tank plays like a medium heavy, and that poor top speed doesen't give it the ability to keep up with mediums.

 

What do you think?

 

Also, the hull armor is so bad that it's almost like a medium tank hull.

great Idea, I would also give it a hp/t of 201, then the name makes even more sense:great:

I own that tank and I like it, speed isn't particular a concern to me the weak frontal armor is the main problem. T6 meds can pen it easily and that limits ability to play like a heavy in my opinion.

Speed is not a concern I have when I play it. I drive past the BP.. it should be enough. As generally... Speed is not a key feature on UK HT's on mid tiers.

This tank but also the Chieftain/T95 need a speed buff. Certainly now that the regular Centurion tanks all got a speed buff as well.
