Well to be fair it's ok if you face other tier T8 MT's or T9 MT's , so don't play it in a platoon or the MM stuffs you as I have discovered with the Cent 1.

The best thing to say about it is it's better than some. If you've got a good British medium crew, like that sort of gameplay, and don't mind being bottom tier a lot then go for it.

 

It's one of my rare purchases because I still do like the game, but I'm only going to buy things that fit my garage and crews. Only six games so far and it's just a different sort of Centurion. Not as nimble as the 4202 but it has got a great turret that bounces higher tiers so maybe it can work a little better in 3/5/7.

Gf gifted me it but yet to take it for a spin as I was away the weekend. I love my centurions, and looking at it it just seems to be a better cent1 or p:vic. Much better hull armour then either of them, and a quick look at the stats in garage with my crew and equipment everything else seemed just as good as regular cent.

 

eitherway it's the first competitive tier 8 prem med for the brits

Not a bad tank, but the 230 damage at tier 10 gives problems (75% battles are tier 10)

So in short when I got rid of my Fv4202, I got rid of a pretty good tank then, I hate it when ppl say this thing is OP powercreep, it looks nothing of the sort, just goes to show the BS you can see on Youtube.

 

 

#walletclosed even though i am tempted, not sure whether to get my old FV back or not

 

 

In fairness though the only tow premiums i am waiting for is the Object 252 unavailable and the E25, they maybe a long time in coming but come i am sure they will.

Better than the tech tree Centurion, as used by WG lately.

I've tooned with a 4202, with me in the 5/1 and the 4202 was faster and more nimble. Can't deny the turret on the 5/1 though.

So is the new cent just a hull down beast then, the FV4202 is that mainly a flanking tank?

To all buyers: Enjoy your first battle because after that being top tier is like winning euro lotto :P

Checking the stats at tanks.gg it's hard to may to say which one of these four looks best on paper, especially as I've never owned any of them myself.

 

https://tanks.gg/compare/centurion-51?t=centurion-i%7Epvictoria%7Efv4202-p

 

The two things that mostly attract my attention is the upgraded armor on the RAAC and, conversely, the superior shell velocity on the P. Victoria (which, I know, you can't use with Brit crews...).

Reminds me of my CDC. Good looking but tier 8 medium.

The only thing that caught my attention is you can pay to not to have to grind the godawful Comet to get the almost as bad Cent 1, that's a definite bonus!

Hello lads,

 

Does anyone know what the "Unique Camouflages" in the big pack look like ?

Any screenshots around ?

 

I like unique camouflages and am considering getting the big bundle because of that, but if the camo is nothing special it would be 60£ wasted.

None of the photos in the bundle description are with a camo. One would expect if the unique camo is the selling point of the bundle, they would at least let us know what we are buying...

 

Does anybody got shots on those or can we see them somewhere ? 

 

regards

StronkRusianTenkKempBush
