That discount is pretty nice (with premium days no less) :)

Centurion 5/1 RAAC is better in every way though. Still FV4202 is a nice offer!

Im trying to understand the Marketing team in WG. When i open the shops in RU server or Asia or US and compared it to EU its sad. US gets ISU-130, EU gets sweaty FV in a bundle. Recently it has been confirmed that EU, even if it does not have the biggest player base in WOT, WG generates the biggest margin from EU. So the question is why do we get such boring offers compared to other servers?

dangerously accurate

If you aim for 3min, don't move and do not move your turret, it is. The soft-stats, abysmal dpm, shell cost and unreliable turret armor are very nice too.

Enjoy your T6 arty pen shots into this "tank"

A Progetto using only single shot is a better tank than this. That's all you really need to know.

Nice deal but already have the Centurion 5

 

In other news why would anyone buy the ISU 130

What a disappointing tank. The worst are the inaccuracy, the low alpha+dpm. It is worst than any other tier 8 med British tank.

A lot of tier 8 mediums seem to have this 'feature'.

Its not about if its good or not. Its about how we are treated differently, if we are speaking about exclusivity:)

Because... ehrrr... because it has the uncommon feature that the premium shell is regular AP as well which does more damage but has less penetration than the standard round? Is... is that a selling point? :ohmy:

I suppose the NA franchise has to work harder to keep its small player base.

The Chinese one seems a law unto itself they are almost playing a different game.

The others I don't know too much about.

That came to my mind also, that they want to promote a bigger variety of vehicles to grow the player base. Nothing to cry about it just slipped my mind this morning looking in to the shops:)

Enjoy! :D Anyone who wants to expand their tank collection, there is your occasion to grab this machine! ;)

Well, that's not true. :) We often get nicer deals than NA with our offers, for example. We tackle different regions with different strategies. That's why it works.

Why not. Penetration's also good. :P

My Chieftain/T95 is looking with envious eyes to this other premium brit tank as well as the Centurion while gathering dust in my garage as it's completely uncompetitive/underpowered compared to them.

 

But then of course the FV and Centurion cost real money while the Chieftain/t95 is only a reward for CW campaigns.......

I... kind of like it... But again, i've got it for free, when Centurion Action X replaced him as a tier 10 tank, by doing a marathon. I've had some success with it in last year's Frontlines, as the tank was decent for defending (lots of hull down positions). But in randoms?! It's mostly situational. Still... worse tanks out there than this pup.
