Mediocre. Centurion 5/1 is better at FV's game.

You can get it from referrral 2.0 for 'free'.

 

Tank is ok-ish, decent turret, weak-ish hull (lots of bounce angles though), no dpm whatsoever.

Apart from the credit making side, the tech tree Centurion I is a lot better. I've had more fun in Cent I, then I got the 5/1 RAAC and haven't played one battle in the FV4202 since.

1/5 would not recommend.

Indeed that Centurion is better (thicker) on paper, but FV has much more lower profile and in game it will make it bounce a lot if you turn your turret toward enemy. For me I enjoy playing this tank, much more then in Caernavon AX.

this tank has been my loyal and reliable workhorse in frontline so I have trouble talking it down... but the truth is the 5/1 is better at anything but one:

the FV's hull is really flat.

wether that is a redeeming quality is up to the eyes of the beholder.

Maybe a good question is what other tier 8 premium mediums are better or worse than this,I cant tell you as I suck in them all

so here is our favourite unicom to help you decide.

Sorry mate ... but, you are not even close, The FV4202 is better in all aspects (except DPM) ...

... compare them with the Comparative Tool and you will see the differences.

Or not. https://tanks.gg/com...p?t=centurion-i

 

Are you comparing premiums against stock tanks now again? :P

That was before it was buffed.

This is how it plays today :

 

The only major problem the tank has imho is the low-ish dpm and still somewhat long-ish aimtime.

But the aimtime is not as bad as it used to be, and the dpm is excusable when you consider the armor.

As for the armor, 250+mm will go through turret sides, 280mm through turret front.

Meh I've had one ages, it's an ok workhorse but really nothing outstanding.

 

I've also got a Primo Victoria and it's marginally better than the FV. 

 

I believe it's DPM is around the same as Progetto reloading the last shell on a full magazine...

Worse actually.

 

It's something like 6.7-6.9s for fv4202 on  230 alpha, while Progetto 46 has 6.7s on 240 alpha.

So it's about 4% lower dpm.
