The FV215B will be a reward tank, if you have it in your garage you will get the super [edited]and the FV215b, both will be in your garage.

Because they are incompetent fools.

My guess is they are waiting for the right time to implement an entire new british heavy line. Why this needs to take so long is anyones guess, though.

Regarding the Chieftain, Sfinski's answer is correct.

Feels like I've missed something. I remember people talking about this about 2 years ago but nothing recently...source?

It’s official now, Super Conqueror will be coming to the game soon, as a FV215B replacement.

 

So there you go, officially announced on an unofficial 3rd party blog.  Get grinding mugs.

I can officially say as a customer of this game that anyone with the 215B will receive it as a completely free Tier X Heavy.

Cheers Homer. If that site is to be believed though, it looks kinda meh. Not played the 215b, but comparing the two on paper, the Conqueror gets:

 

-Worse DPM

-Fewer hit points

-Worse ground resistances

-Worse HP/tonne ratio

-Worse aim time

 

+More conventional turret placement (though no better gun depression)

+No frontal engine (though knowing the Conqueror a frontal ammo rack to compensate)

+Better aim time turret armour (but the FV's turret armour was pretty good anyway, so this might be overkill)

 

Am I missing something or does this tank look like a downgrade from the 215b?

 

Edit: It's 1am and brain is dying apparently.

I don't care, I got the FV215b already, so bring it on. :teethhappy:

Super Conqueror has better UFP and its spaced armor, so you cant HEAT spam it. 215b's UFP is weak to HEAT spam. SC's turret is almost immune to even TD HEAT shells thanks to spaced armor while 215b's turret cheeks can be vulnerable against it. 

 

Super Conqueror also has better side armor, 76 instead of 51 (on paper 215b has 101 bu thats a lie for most part, its only the side of engine deck that is 101 and literally no one shoots there) and doesnt have corner weakspots like 215b

 

Also the stats are probs not final

Another British tank which cannot compete with any tanks of the same tier.

 

Whats new?

Yep, hadn't noticed that bit.
