 I would like to warn those who want to get their hand on fv4202:

1)Worst dpm

2)Worst armor it's paper armor don't get fooled by 200mm turret armor.

3)High ammo cost

 

If u want British meds get the other one

Each to their own. I find it a reliable stalker. It won’t stand up to brawling but it can be used to move about taking potshots and nibbling down armour

The 'other' one is the good one. Who would buy the FV when the 5/1 is available?

 

Sorry for all the FV owners! :)

Yep RAAC is pretty much better in every way.

 

FV4202 is just a bad forgotten premium, it was like getting blood from a stone to get WG to make it half decent when they released it considering the original version went 35kph and had even worse DPM and armour now.

 

It's also a rare premium that is worse than the tech tree equivalent as the Cent 1 is better.

 

To finally add insult to injury, the FV4202 HD model is really bad, the turret is completely out of proportion, its too tall and not sloped enough so IRL it was this sleek low profile tank and in game it looks someone has blown the turret up like balloon

Well i got it for free with the tier 10 swap mission... Back then... Oooo boi what a tank!
35km/h max speed, worse aim time and RoF than now, and turret made out of used toilet paper... A tank only a true BDSM enthusiast could love! Since then it had numerous buffs and now it is not bad, just meh. A shame, it is one buff away from becoming a good med(either DPM or gun soft stats) but WG decided "F it, we are making new, premium shop exclusive med".
That seems to be the policy these days, with few exceptions all tech tree premiums available for gold are either slightly or vastly inferior to the cash only shop option.

PS: Now i only play it from time to time because it looks bloody awesome in black paint with a wolf head decal on the turret.

Remember when they were about to buff the turret so it can bounce stuff, but they thought it was op so they toned the buff back:trollface:

Plays just Fine for me, better than when it was a Tier 10 too.....       Bounces JPZ E100's just fine as well, Pen's'em too....      Have you Considered you have no Clue what you're doing...????

 

All the Brit Tanks have Mediocre to Abysmal DPM, they have Good Pen and RoF though so it Adds Up Fast....      Armor isn't Thick, but Nicely Sloped and it's a Far Lower Profile than the other Cent's goving it a Better Camo Rating for it's Size....      Same for the Turret....

 

I have over 1600 Games in Mine and I Abuse it Regularly....      Sniper, Brawler, Heavy, mine does it all....      And yes I know, it's a Medium, but it get's the Job Done when I need it to....

FV has some of the best soft stats in the game, the 5/1 is a slug in comparison

 

They need different styles, the 5/1 is far more noob friendly

I'm a noob but I love the FV and both Cents... yes, I'm a sucker and have all three!! My best stats are in the FV and I find it a great little tank for bombing about and taking pot shots at people. It has the British tank knack of nibbling away and before you know it, bang, their dead. It's a good tank. The RAAC is better in a different role. Hull down and fight. The FV has to be on the move like the Comet.

In FL I generally play the T44 100 and Rev before I get onto the FV.

Most that have played the Cent 1, knows that the 20 pdr is trash and costly as is. Only one tier 8 has good enough DPM with it. On anyone of the meds it's not great tbh if you get in an open trade vs anything. As then the other one is better indeed. As he has armor that can troll that makes the trading more viable. FV can do that too, but only if you hold the ridgeline with max gun depression. 

 

I hated it as a tier X. And I've not played it much since it became a tier 8 prem. Crom B was such a better choice for crew training back then if that was your goal. And everything else if you wanted income.

FV needs a little buff to the turret armour for me but I do like it.

Nah, that was the hull dude, they buffed the turret and now it (kinda)works but they scrapped the hull armor buff. That buff was rather ridiculous to be honest it was planed to be 220mm frontal, before you even angle it, the cent 5/1 has 200ish mm front and much larger lower plate. That said if they buff the FV front to something less absurd i'd be a very happy camper.

I too bought it prior to the Power Creep.

 

Don't mind it too much actually although the turret is rubbish despite it being advertised as strong. It really can't be relied on.

 

Standard AP pen is probably about the only thing that lifts it above the Lel Prem tier I guess. 

 

Somehow I bought Primo too :sceptic:

I have Both Tanks, 4202 at 1639 Battles and the 5/1 at 113....          They're Distinct in their Roles due to the Armor on one and Mobility on the Other....

 

5/1 can Play a Heavy when Top Tier and the 4202 has the Ability to get around Better making it a bit Sneakier when on Ridges or Peeking.....        Reload is only slightly Better on the 5/1, but the Upper Plates are Separated by at least 10*, 55* Angled for the 5/1 and 65* for the 4202.....     So despite the FAR Lower Actual Armor Thickness, that extra 10* makes a BIG Difference in Bounce Quality.....

 

As for the P.Vic, it's not a Bad Tank but it's Ammo Choices leave something ro be Desired....     It's a Cent MkI that makes Less in Credits because of the APCR as a Standard Ammo Choice....      Over Range they're Not real Good about Penning most Targets meaning Firing more Often....      Another Issue mine has is the Sabaton Crew, they're All Rock Star but definately NOT Tankers, though the BiA right out of the Gate is Great, they just don't seem to have any Idea what to do in the Tank....     Even using them in my 14/5 they seem to not be able to get the Job Done....

 

I have a Bunch of Videos on YouTube of me Abusing mine on a Regular Basis, just don't do anything you see me do and you should be Fine.....

I like the Primo gun, has a much higher velocity so better for sniping and snapshots

mobility is pretty meh

Nearly 10 rounds a min

You should have played it when it initially got released (as tier 8).
