So this was just posted on WoT FB page! „Centurion Mk. 5/1 RAAC has just joined the Supertest! As a Tier VIII medium tank“! L​ooks pretty nice and with 400m viewrange...What do you guys think?

Looks very nice model-wise, though I personally dislike the lack of the mudguards (?).

I am not seeing a huge difference between it and the FV4202 to be honest - The Cent has thicker but less angled armour at the front of the turret and hull, and is consequently a little slower in traverse. 2 metres more base viewrange... same gun stats (obviously, as it is the 20 pounder again), same hit points, and same forward and reverse speeds. If they are removing the FV4202 then I can understand putting a new Tier VIII medium premium tank in the store, but it seems to me that they are simply re-skinning the Primo Villagething to make some easy money. I hope they are not removing the FV4202 because I bought it when it was re-released as a premium tank with diabolical top speed and a pile of other issues and I am fond of it, and it is quite decent if allowed to fight on its preferred terms - if current owners get to keep it then great... I may buy the Cent 5 if and when released, but the UK needs a premium tier VIII heavy tank more.

Thats the Sabaton tank with a different skin. Nothing more. Well it has worse ROF.

Is there an AA version? RAC came out to fix my car once, and the mechanic smelt of cheese.

Yay, another mediocre British tank. Just what we all have been hoping for!

So this is another mediocre tier 8 MT that will only see tier 10 matches? Pass.

Don't expect any good British tanks right now. If ever.

Good top speed, good penetration, accurate gun. Another power creep for the British Chieftain/T95. And I'm sure there are other tier 8 premium mediums which are a bit worse than this tank, the Patton KR looks weaker, but I might be wrong.

A British copy of Primo Victoria, which is a copy of Cent I with APCR standard. Creative.

Off-topic, but Progetto 46 is already being tested in the game.

Does it matter that it is a Victoria clone, if what you want to do with it is train your UK crews?

We need more t8 premiums guys.

Especially ones with similar armor and similar gun to the existing FV4202.

Anything apart from Defender & Scorpion G is getting pretty much shafted with the current MM, your only purpose is to fill up the HP pool so tier IX & X has something to feast on.

I quite like the look of it. Gives it the Vietnam vibe.

A nice looking tank, but another boring gun, and at T8 the match-maker will just throw you against T9/10 all day. Such a shame, but if you're going to put a tank against those guys, then it needs high alpha damage.

Nice to see its not another auto-loader as there are far too many of those in the game already.
