Looking for a good tier 8 med to buy, so which is better from both and I think wg is fooling you with fv4202 when a better tier 8 med mk.5 is present? 

(Sigh they can never make their game better...)

I have both on the NA server, and would rate the 5/1 as better, although the differences aren't massive...

From memory, I think the 5/1 may have slightly better armour.

 

Edit: before it got buffed (more than once) the FV4202 was pretty awful; people still remember that, I think...

So I compared both:

(Centurion)

1)Better hull and turret armor.

2)+10 more view range.

3)more DPM.

4)More power to weight ratio.

5)Better gun handling.

(Fv4202)

1)Little more camouflage.

2)Better terrain resistance.

 

YES fv4202 is useless and needs to be removed from premium shop and replaced by Mk5...

there is massive difference I guess..they sold fv4202 as much as they could and then introduce better med and again they will introduce the third med and say WE ARE DOING OUR BEST TO MAKE WOT BETTER..

On tanks gg looks like there is 1 tier difference between them.

The 5/1 is the better tank but in practical terms (that is in relation to everything else that those tanks regularly meet) the differences aren't noticeable. Besides, the much smaller profile / size on the FV makes it more effective on many circumstances.

The 'better gun handling' isn't a given as I think the Centurion 5/1 traverses faster than the FV (both hull and turret), so the reticle will disperse more.

All in all, it's a matter of preference: Better DPM and better armour (against other tier VIII)? Buy the 5/1. Much smaller profile and subsequent less exposure? Go for the FV.

You can think of it like this when comparing premium tanks and looking for which to get.

The premium tank that was released latest is most probably the better tank.

They did have the FV4202 in a decent state on the test server when testing the buffs, but then decided it was way too OP with a decent turret and sales of the RAAC would not be so good so removed the turret buffs.

Personally I prefer the FV myself but if I'm giving advice out which to buy go for the 5/1 every time.

This kinda doesn't matter because 5/1 gets much stronger turret and upper plate. So FV4202's lower profile is not really an advantage.
