When the Brit Td line was launched, we were said that the FV215B(183) will be the most powerful tank in the game it can destroy IS7 & most of the tier X in 1 shot  

well now when i finally got 1 & i realized that it was just "MAGNIFY" the whole thing

What does  THIS TD HAS TO OFFER

rate of fire of 2 rounds a min
good pen
inaccurate gun with .4 accuracy
avg speed
45 Deg rotating turret
avg damage with standard HE shell is 600-700
avg damage with standard AP shell is 900-1100 (if u get lucky)
avg damage with standard HEAT shell is 900-1300
and the best thing is u have only 12 shells

this td needs to be buffed up a bit

better accuracy like from .4 to .35 or .36
better rate of fire from 2 rounds to 3 / min


i think every tank in this game is unique

Plz tell me wts so special abt this 1

It scares anyone who comes face to face with it in a dark alleyway.

What so special? HESH round... high penetration HE round that got chances to 1 hit kill most of the tierX.... Special enough as only this TD got the ability to do that...

Having played 99 rounds with the thing, i can tell you 0 dmg pens or bounces are the most unbalanced things about this tank.

I mean i fire a round at a light tank, which in theory, rend the tank in two and all i get is the tracks soaking the damage up?

A gun of this caliber needs special mechanics, not an increase of basic stats.

99 battles, never happened once. HESH is a really, really sketchy HE round.

HESH round is so special on this thing. 1 shotting tier8s and ripping tier10s to weeny tinny bits of their life left it's so colorful even though it happens only once in a few while.

I ride this beast to troll pubs and ONLY to troll pubs. This tank can't carry but it can scare away others lol.

People saying you never get to one shot something with this and rolling 0 damage pens are either shooting it wrong or don't know where to aim. People please, this has an identical pen to a Lowe and if you want to one shot something, you have to take your time and AIM at the weakspots you think a Lowe can pen.

One, ZERO damage pens never happened to me on HESH rounds.
Two, Don't bother on spaced armor
Three, Never aim for the tracks, THAT is "spaced armor".
Four, HESH rounds or gtfo. You drive this thing for the HESH, otherwise you made the wrong decision on thinking rolling it with AP and you're better off with the jpe-100
Five, You easily die.

In my opinion, I agree that this tank needs a buff. Most likely aim time and more frontal armor but not reload...This beast has acceptable reload for a gun that guarantees damage on HESH no matter where you shoot the enemy at (except tracks and spaced armor, ofc).

Does firing HESH round to the ground below a tank still do splash dmg/track a tank?

It's better if they just increase it's ammo capacity instead if buffing it's accuracy or RoF.

Love this tank, it's just a more accurate kv2 for teir x

Only down fall is 45 damage hits using Hesh on the rare occasion, but when you derp someone for 2k damage it's priceless.


Never had so many players laugh or wtf when you derp someone in the first min of the match

Got the FV 183 and have 100+- games on it.

I can say that HESH is unreliable and should only be used when the situation calls for it.

Trust me. 25 secs is long to just reload a HESH round, so it's not good if you've got HESH in your barrel and are up against a Maus or E100. I roll my 183 with 6 AP and 6 HESH and ace tankered it with around 8k+ dmge.

AP is more reliable IMO, and HESH should only be loaded when you see a very squishy target. But even at those times, HESH can still screw you over, like shooting a batchat for only 700 dmge.  :facepalm:
