So basically I took it as reward recently (mainly for the crew). Lets see about feats of this tank:
- Useless armor - on paper looks fine but the whole turret is gigantic weakspot - especially top portion of it... even the mantle gets penned by pretty much anything. Upper glacis and lower glacis armor is non existent...
- High dpm with somewhat ok-ish penetration but if you want to shoot other T7 heavies - forget it! Its only good vs mediums and light tanks. If you are in a T9 game... well... you can find a position where you can be destroyed and serve as a good hulldown cover for you team mates.
- No preferential mmr - it meets T9 tanks quite often and you can go f yourself if you are in such match up
- It's slow
- It's its big
- It looses credits after lost battle even if you shoot only a few apcrs and did 1K dmg...

I have 15% WR with it after 13 battles so... I won basically only TWO!

Summary: Imagine taking your Churchill VII and moving it up a tier so that its matched against T9 tanks - FV201 in a nutshell. Don't bother - grab the crew for your british heavy line grind and sell this stinker... 1M credits is a lot more useful than this tank will ever be. Horrific game play experience which makes me want to cut my veins wide open. Black Prince compared to this is a GEM!

Just got it not going to play it though, well maybe 1 or 2 games only picked it because Its one I didn't have.

If they want to sell it in future they will have to buff it happy either way as it cost me nothing

it cant even fight same tier HTs... its suposed to be some kind of hulldown dpm tank but everything farts through its turret and the 17-pounder has anemic penn so it cant fight back at all.

The 17 pounder is a T6 gun.... It's fine on the T6 Prem Firefly thing but likely not so good at T7.

This tank needs a buff, please WG sort it out, it would make a nice British crew trainer if it wasn't so rubbish in ALL areas.
