Supertest: British FV4201 Chieftain Proto Heavy Tank

2 min read

The Tier IX British FV4201 Chieftain Proto heavy tank entered Supertest stage. No information was shared about this vehicle plan, but it does have a Premium status in Supertest. That doesn’t mean it will be Premium, we had vehicles like that before and had the tag removed, but, the FV4201 Chieftain Proto does look like the perfect vehicle to be yet another Tier IX Premium vehicle introduced to Supertest. We will have to wait and see.

The vehicle has a 120 mm gun with 400 damage per shot.  The penetration value of the standard shell is 262 mm, and the special APCR shell penetrates 310mm. The gun’s accuracy is 0.36, has an aiming time of 2.3s, and a reload time of 12s.

Thanks to sloped armour, the thickness of the turret front of the vehicle reach 350mm, while the hull has 80mm of well-sloped armour. The tank also has good gun depression/elevation angles of –10/20 degrees. Its durability is 1,950HP. The vehicle’s top speed is 35 km/h, and its specific power is 15h.p./t.

The FV4201 Chieftain Proto is a classic British heavy tank. Taking into account its strengths and weaknesses will help unleash the full potential of this vehicle

All characteristics are with a crew trained to 100% and subject to change before the final release.

  1. I would be nice if this was an indication of us finally getting an alternative British HT line ending in the Chieftain that we’ve always wanted…

    Which makes it perfect for WG to turn it into a premium so that alt line can never happen.
