A pretty good tank for skilled players.

 

Do not expect miracles, it is not OP, but it is a good tool in the hands of a player who knows how play medium tanks made for multiple purposes (different game-play in different maps).

I strongly disagree. I consider myself a somewhat skilled player, and i hate this tank with all my heart... No armor, no speed, no dpm...nothing useful

Very old tank. Who does not even have anything to stand out for. Neither weapon nor armor nor speed. The whole tank is the archive.
I only have it as a statue in the garage the strongest is if it is against 6 leva tanks ahhahha

​Good pen, good dep, not a completely useless turret. Wouldn't give the tank a high rating but it's alright and fairly comfortable to play, I think. Can't recommend spending money on it though.

I suck with mine but I don't think it's all that bad. Awful Alpha means no trading or brawling. It's pen even with gold isn't mind blowing but I think fighting super heavies from the front is likely wrong anyway :hiding:

This was one of the first premium tanks I bought, I actually like it, still play it occasionally but now the mm has been tampered with, since last year, playing tier 8 is just a futile exercise into how long you can last before getting wiped out by 9's and 10's. 

 

I did infact gift this to one of my clam team mates who absolutely loves it, it isn't all that bad,but the tanks I am waiting for are the !S3 a, the E25 and of course he Defender. Tier 8 needs an OP tank to level up the playing field against 9's and 10's.

 

Would be an awesome feature too if there was someway you could loan out tanks to your clan mates, who mostly annoying ly do not have the tiers you wish to play. This would only apply to clan players, and the tanks would be automatically returned if the players left the clan, maybe something WG could look at.

 

Just a humble idea that WG will ignore and others will laugh at, peace and love all, and happy tanking :trollface:

I don't mind this vehicle and I'm crap. The speed increase made it more flexible.

I quite like my FV4202, all round handling is fine but the weak alpha and only half reliable turret really hampers me in higher tier games as it can be difficult to support your team mates. Even if you get into a good spot, T10s can simply ignore your damage and just power through you as it takes so long to chip them down. I guess I could just permi track them...

 No it doesn't. A tier 8 tank is not supposed to superior to tier 9 or 10, especially not a premium tank. If you are fighting against a tier 9, you automatically are expected to lose since it's a tier higher opponent. The difference if you win or lose comes from the skill you and the opponent possess. In a tier 8 in current matchmaking you are there to outperform enemy tier 8 tanks, your counterparts. The problem is not that you meet tier 10 in your tier 8 vehicle, but the high risk that the few tier 10 players are bad and their effect on winning is higher is what is wrong with the mm.

The idea is bad since you essentially want pretty much infinite free premium tanks. You are forgetting that WG is a company and they are in it to make money. Your idea would take away basically all the need to buy a premium tank as you would have to buy one premium tank for a group of people to use and get the benefits out of the said premium tank.

I like mine! I like the fact that it has very good gun depression and high penetration plus good turret armor. Could it get some love? I think yes. It could benefit from gun handling buff. It is as good as a premium must be! We are just used to broken stuff like defenders,patriots,libertes and skorpions...

It is an adequate multirole med, but that is also its weakness, it lacks focus, it can snipe, but not quite well since the good pen and accuracy are coupled with bad soft stats, it can support, but the bad DPM makes sure you can't kill things as quickly as other support meds, it can hulldown but the turret is not completely reliable(naturally it has some small weakspots, but it is also angle dependent, good if you have one tank to fight, but don't expect durability of an american heavy against multiple targets), the hull is thin too but if someone shoots your upper plate if you angle it it will autobounce thanks to the sloping.
The economy of the tank is weird too, it has the brit 20pdr gun with its annoying ammo cost of 680 creds per shot for 230dmg(the same tier 90mm guns have 240 alpha for 250 credits and the M4 Rev gets 390 for 580 creds) that can eat your profit if you don't run premium account and shoot a lot.

Despite all of that i enjoy playing mine, it may not excel in anything but it gets the job done and it is flexible enough to respond to changes on the battlefield, that is what i as an average player think of it.

P.S.: You could also paint it in black(for 300 additional gold), it looks amazing, too bad WG decided only the brits can roll with style however. :D

FV4202 is known to be well balanced all around decent tank, a base for what every premium tank should be like. The fact that you do badly in it, like you do in other tanks as well, does not mean the tank is bad. It's not to be recommended to all players though since it's not that easy to play.
