Supertest: FSV Scheme A, Tier VII British Wheeled Medium [7 Jul ’23]

2 min read

The tier 7 vehicle from the upcoming British line of wheeled mediums arrived on Supertest last week:

VII 🇬🇧:MT:FSV Scheme A

The FSV Scheme A is a Tier VII British medium wheeled tank.

The vehicle has good maneuverability and view range and is armed with a quick-firing gun with decent dispersion and aiming time. It can occupy key positions quickly together with medium tanks and provide support for allies. At the same time, the FSV Scheme A has a rather large silhouette and weak armor, so be careful.

  • The vehicle is armed with a 75-mm gun. Its reload time is 4.7 s.
  • The penetration of its standard shell is 185 mm, while a special shell penetrates 220 mm of armor.
  • Its damage per shot is 150 HP.
  • Dispersion is 0.33, and the aiming time is 1.8 s. 
  • The frontal armor is up to 18 mm thick.
  • The tank’s total durability is 1,000 HP.
  • Its top speed is 60 km/h, with a specific power of 24.4 hp/t.
  • Its view range is 370 m. 

Brief Historical Background

While it isn’t fully clear whether this is an accurate assessment on my part, it at least appears this vehicle may be a representation of the GSOR 1010 Scheme A1, shown in Armored Archives’s video covering the historical (in)accuracy of the GSOR 1010 FB:

While the tier 8 GSOR 1010 FB shares very little resemblance with the project shown in the video(/these schematics), the tier 7 vehicle looks quite a bit closer — note the hull layout and general turret shape. Some details are not exactly identical to the design shown above (including the asymmetrical turret rear), but may either be from a different proposal in the same project (assuming it is, in fact, meant to be a representation of this vehicle) or a different project altogether. Ultimately, not very much is known for sure, but this is the conclusion I have reached from what I have been shown — if anyone happens to know any further details about this project, or has any corrections to make regarding my rudimentary assessment, let me know!.

WoT Express has published some early in-game previews of the vehicle (shown in top configuration, with SD textures):

This vehicle, along with the rest of the British wheeled mediums, is slated to arrive with Update 1.22 sometime in August/September 2023. Stay tuned!
