Why does Kranvagn have only 2000 HP considering its a heavy tank ? Why does Obj. 430U have 2000 HP considering its a medium tank ? Why does FV4005 (A tier X TD ) have only 150 HP less ?

Why do dogs have 4 legs? Maybe if we work together we can answer all of these mysteries

How many should it have and why?

Because of balance reasons. Also, most tanks have HP according to their physical size as well. Kranvagn being very small and a jagdtiger being pretty big. In the end it's just another balance factor.

You answered your own question

Krv is a heavy tank and has a nigh impenetrable turret. Doesn't need more HP if his durability is already high.

 

Obj. 430U was cancelled because the project had grown into a Heavy Tank, and the soviets didn't need another one; it really is a heavy tank and this shows in the game. (source = wiki)

 

FV4005 is a TD and a pretty large one at that. it needs slightly more HP to compensate its lack of armour. That's only 50HP more than the lowest non-SPG, non-LT tanks standard (1800HP). And so on for other vehicles.

The difference isn't too big until SHTs.

 

Essentially this:

because 2000 is cool number, so all cool tanks have 2000

Because Kranvagn is not your typical brawling tank, when played to it's strength it doesn't need enormous hitpoint pool and is nigh invincible. 430u on the other hand is your typical soviet in-your-face brawling tank. And sh1tbarn is a tank destroyer which needs every bit of HP it can get, since it's made of paper and has large silhouette.

 

Those hitpoint rations between classes are not set in stone, just like the classes themselves aren't. You just don't play every tank the same way, even if they belong to the same class.
