When the model of this tank will be reworked finally? I have the St.Patrick's Day 3d style on it, so it helps, but the overall model is still wrong since the introduction of the British tanks.

WG, you misspelled the title: ”FV4202 takes [forever to] aim.”

Cause everything not fully aimed misses, and some of those as well.

If your target is to miss, then you'll sure hit the mark with FV4202, this tank is perfect example of powercreep making once ok tank totally useless in current meta. Kinda disgusting thing to promo this tank, while you guys in WG certainly know that it's just outdated junk. :facepalm:

Can't wait to try it out. The main idea is not bad, but the compensation is what matters for me the most. Not to mention, I asked multiple times if merging crews from different tanks would be an option, but received 0 answers for that. I don't think I'm the only one who has different crews for every single line in the game, and have some sets of crews for fav tech-tree/prem/collector tanks. So.. if a commander will be usable for 3 different tanks, that means I'll have 1 commander for my IS-4, IS-7 and Obj 277 for example, and I'll have 2 commanders inside my barracks without any use. Even if the transformation from crew 1.0 to crew 2.0 are leave the commanders inside their original tanks is a thing.. still -> I'll have lots of unused commanders, because why the .... would I use different commanders for each tank, when I have a better commander for the 3 of them, and the 2 remainings are just... deadweight (for the time being ofc)

The FV4202 itself is not a bad premium tank (sadly its out of the meta), but you can find an ever better alternative for the money, or get this from the referal program 4 free.

Not even powercreeped! To get powercreeped the tank needs to be good in the first place, the FV4202 was never good, after all the buffs it got it was always meh at best, ever struggling to barely keep its head above water.
That is possibly the most rebalanced tank in this game, i honestly can't remember how many times it was buffed, which just shows what a pile of trash it was upon its release as a premium.
When it was given as a mission prize upon the British top tier medium switch it had 35km/h top speed with 12.4hp/t power to weight, it had about 150mm effective armor on most of the turret 0.35 base accuracy with 2.6 aim time and some pretty bad soft stats on the gun and if i remember correctly they planned to release it with even worse DPM but they changed it shortly before release.
I guess it is among the 15 old premiums WG will buff this year, i mean, they are buffing the Cyka Pershing and STA-2, both of which are better tanks than the FV.

The tldr about this tank is: If you want a British medium, get the Centurion 5/1, it literally is a better FV4202 in every aspect.

Kinda wished for the 5/1 instead. FV4202 is just bad.

It is one of the worst premiums in tier 8. Do not fall into WG's marketing pitfall especially for new players.

Sniper hahahah you made my day WG...

Still no comment about frontline!?

Trash OUTDATED tank, dont buy it...
Heavily needs a massive rework. Has no advantage, low agility, no armor at all. Low dpm and low alpha gun. Also missies a lot shoots, no idea why, so thats denies the high penetration.

Turret armor is a lie, can only work on hills, but still can be penned without gold.

 

Btw what else can a tank has if armor, gun and the agility is poor?

I am amazed by the speed

 

or frequency, to be more precise, of WG promoting the sales of outdated premium tanks.:sceptic:
