Like, in the bizarreness of things the Chimera seems quite the odd one, like a Matilda BP on stereoids, and that gun is just going to be a weird one. But while that is weird and all, what about this:

 

 

I mean what? The obvious striking exterior aside (looks like a Conqueror and an Ikv 65 had a baby, a combo nobody ever dared to dream about) this is going to have no armor and a derp gun. And I thought the Ikv 65 was bad.

 

Now don't get me wrong, the UK does need some premium TDs, but was this monstrocity the thing we needed? My eyes just, hurt.

It's not decided on what gun it will have, as there is a 2nd non derp version with a QQ77 gun or something like it with 165 pen, 150 alpha, 0.33 dispersion, 1.6 sec aim time and 4.5 second reload time. 

 

Tho it's basically an FV304 TD. If the size remains small, mobile and the camo value turns out to be great. I might get it for the memes.

I wouldn't worry about it, it's so ugly that I wouldn't buy it if it had the death star's 183 :teethhappy:

I'll give you that, if this is going to be like an Ikv 65 II with a derp gun, it will be a driving meme. Shame I don't have any UK TD's to train crews for.

It's ugly as hell but decently mobile, has basically a turret as it goes 90 degrees either side.

 

If it's fairly small and the camo is decent then it'll probably be solid, though the 76mm gun option looks better, the 120mm derp only has HE and only has 40 more alpha than the 105mm derps on tier 5. 

 

Also this makes potentially 4 new British premiums, with this, the Chimera, the Cent 5/1 RAAC and the Caernarvon Action X.

I think its looks pushes it to the point where ugly turns into uniquely attractive. I feel tingle.

I don't get what issues everyone has with its looks, it's simply a modified APC. The derp gun is beyond bad though, damage stats of T5 meds with reload+aiming behavior of the KV-2. And no alternative ammo type at all. The 76mm gun they're testing as alternative is at least somewhat competitive.

Knowing me I will probably buy that thing once it comes out.

I don''t know why but I actually like the look of it.

Well this thing looks terrible. nothing to actually lose your mind over, unlike Chimera.

 

Edit: looks like a worse PZ4H in every aspect.

"I'm buying that, it looks so cool."

"It's ugly, I'm not buying that..!"

 

Probably the daftest reasons to buy/don't buy tanks.

Ha ha losing my mind, don ethat years ago, to be honest i am losing more faith with WG  EU and their constant trolling of EU customers by not giving us some of what we want.

 

You don't think I am right to feel this way?

 

We have had one of the best in game feature which is FL, every other server had the new cent, we never, and we wil only get stoney silence form the WG overlords as to why this has come about.

 

As for this little beauty, don't worry because some of us want it, we will never see it:D

I am SO getting that.  For no other reason than to annoy people.  Hopefully it'll come with a lurid paint job option like the Strv S1, to ramp up the rage factor even further.

Well, shot by shot, the Excalibur will have quite some punch with 70 mm pen HE, which is not that bad.

 

However, with 4 RPM, and slow limited turret traverse ... we will see... depends a lot on the soft stats.

Never if WG EU have anything to do with it, or it may appear on other servers only, like certain other tanks.
