Supertest: Changes to British Medium Tanks

The new characteristics of some British Medium tanks are soon to be tested on the Supertest server!

British MTs have excellent elevation angles and a good view range, but unfortunately, the turret isn’t strong enough for allowing you to fully take advantage of these top British vehicles. That’s exactly why we plan to improve the front armor of Medium tanks turrets starting from Tier VIII to Tier X.

The effective armor will now start from 240mm, which will allow you to play more confidently on terrain folds and to feel less vulnerable.

British premium MT FV4202 was not ignored either. Besides improving the front of the turret (common for all top Medium tanks), we’ll also improve the armor of the front hull so it reaches 223mm effective armor. Due to tht, FV 4202 will be able to fight with opponents using its strong front. Moreover, we’ll increase the engine power to 650 h.p., which will allow this tank to reach its maximum speed quicker, become more mobile and dynamic overall.

  1. Nice, defender is the main T8 heavy tank for CW
    bulldog GF is the main LT for CW
    Skorpion is the main TD for CW
    now FV4202 is the main medium for CW

    youd think prem tanks might be considered unbalanced, but im just a pleb in the comments, so what do i know….

      1. I mean… armor is easily made less relevant by anyone willing to hit the two key. So why would I want something buffed that isnt actually going to do any thing? Why would I want to buff something that relies on the enemy being unwilling to shoot gold (or simple being a bad player)? Armor is the lazy buff to satiate lazy players who dont want to think about how they play their tanks. Thats why the T-54 is getting an armor buff. And the Obj. 140. And both Pattons… and the AMX-30s. Armor is a passive mechanic that relies less on the player an more on the enemy being bad, and its a terrible thing to buff on EVERY TANK because it forces every tank into the generic brawling role.

        Just looking at the previous buffs, why play any of the Centurions when you can just play a Patton and have similar armor, but vastly better guns?

        More over, the Centurions are second line support tanks that rely on shooting distracted targets or poking targets and pulling back for before armor ever enters the equation. Buffing things that they dont rely on doesnt help them.

        Every top tier medium change recently has been WG taking the lazy way out and making every top tier medium a generic piece of shit. Go hull down and face tank shit because you have turret armor. No thought required. Its boring. Its bullshit. And its the wrong direction for this game to be going.

  2. I still think that the british line on a whole needs work. The 8 and 9 meds need to have their gun stabilization improved and dpm buffed to fall in line with the game play of the AX

    1. As do the premium tier 8. That tank is more pay to lose than anything. Even this buff with mkae it only decent

  3. Is the FV4202 a medium or a heavy. It has pretty much the same armour as a patriot, to all intense and purpose the same gun as the patriot and similarly mobility as well. All it lacks is some hit point.
