Was surfing tanks.gg today and saw these three: 

T95/Chieftain - https://tanks.gg/tank/t95chieftain

T95/FV4201 Chieftain - https://tanks.gg/tank/t95fv4201

Chieftain Mk. 6 - https://tanks.gg/tank/chieftain

 

I know the second one (the FV4201) is the CW reward, it's also the only one available ingame for non-supertesters/WG accounts.

What about the other two? What are they? 

Just Curious. Any info appreciated.

After putting the FV in the game and fooking over tier 10, i think WG will be weary of putting more tier 11-12 tanks in the game. 

 

But this is WG, they don't give a crap as their business model is working very well

Honestly I realy dont see the problem with the Chieftain Mk. 6 coming in to the game now. With the amount of power creep in the game and some of the newer tanks in the game I dont see it dominating the game, sure it will to start with until people learn to deal with them, but that is normal when something new is introduced.

You're over reacting IMO. The Chieftain Mk6 is far more balanced than the OP CW tank. The cupola is bigger and can't be completely covered using the full gun depression.

The turret armour itself is not as strong, with zone around 250-260mm. With a bit of aiming, you can pen it with AP or, more easily, with premium ammo, especially 340 pen HEAT and higher.

The hull is also a lot paperish, with 38mm side armour behind the tracks. 120mm guns and higher can overmatch it with AP. 

 

I would much more prefer to fight against a Mk6 than a SConqueror, let alone the Chieftain monstrosity.

The Chinese owner of the World of Tanks concession in China is Kong Zhong.

Any vehicle in the game files they will sell.

The Chieftain mk.VI has long been in the game files. It is sold by Kong Zhong to any customer who has already spent over 1,000 yuan (they are already selling the Strv 81 which has yet to be sold on EU).

Mk.6 at least how it's in this game is a LOT weaker than T95/FV4201. Upper hull is only around 220mm effective, large parts of turret can be reliably penned even with standard rounds and there is quite big cupola on top with no armor.

They should buff it and make it a collectors British tier 10 heavy

Just had a fair and balanced tank carry me to complete a horrible arty mission (kills of targets you stunned, the horribleness is in the having to play arty).

 

 

I mean, he did play well, that for sure, but the tank did play a bit of a role in the one man army thing.

Reopen. This tank needs to get removed or heavily nerfed. Its [edited]. You can't play against it.

Im currently grinding my T92.  So at the T9 US Arty.

 

I apologised to a Chieftain Driver yesterday as I completely ruined his game.  While the new CW OP tanks dominate, Id rather have them in the game than Arty any day.

Problem as always is that the ones who received the FV4201/Chief are the top dog players. If you capitalize on a good tank it will become hilariously OP. And the bad players, or below average players, are both negligible and 'okay' with the tank. It's the 907 story as always. The tank is above average, the players make it OP.

 

In other words, if every bob can buy the Chieftain Mk6, they might overperform to their own standards but it has some very obvious weaknesses.
