Goodbye my dearest tank,

you used to be a great heavy with tankdestroyer stats,

but then they gutted you.

 

We had our good and bad days, but now that you'll be gone I feel nothing... nothing aside from happiness~

 

Adieu, sayonara, bye bye, auf Wiedersehen, au revoir, до свидания and goodbye!

I can't remember the exact numbers, basically the gun was hit pretty hard in terms of it's soft stats and the mobility reduced while it's armor was upped.

 

There ya go:

  • Load capacity of FV215b suspension increased from 68,000kg to 73,000kg.
  • Gun dispersion on move and rotation increased by 25%.
  • Weight of tank hull increased from 35,270kg to 37,358kg.
  • Armoring of FV215b turret front increased from 152mm to 254mm.
  • Armoring of FV215b turret 'cheekbones' increased from 112-130mm to 203-228mm.
  • Armoring of FV215b turret gun mantlet increased from 200mm to 254mm.
  • Armoring of FV215b turret sides increased from 89mm to 152.4mm.
  • Armoring of FV215b turret rear increased from 70mm to 101.6mm.
  • Commander's hatch armoring increase from 70-112mm to 101.6-152.4mm.
  • Armoring of top of hull front increased from 130mm to 152.4mm.
  • Armoring of top sloped side of hull front increased from 51mm to 101.6mm.
  • Armoring of hull sides increased from 130mm to 152.4mm.
  • Armoring of hull rear increased from 51mm to 76.2mm.
  • Reloading time of 120mm Gun L1A1 increased from 7.5 sec. to 8.7 sec.
  • Dispersion of 120mm Gun L1A1 increased by 14%.
  • Dispersion of 120mm Gun L1A1 on turret rotation increased by 60%.
  • Dispersion of 120mm Gun L1A1 increased from 0.32m to 0.33m.
  • Turret weight changed from 13,800kg to 16,500kg.
  • Durability decreased from 2,600 to 2,500.

 

It doesn't sound too bad on paper, but then you realise that it was actually a pretty effective sniper/supporter before and now lacks the hp/t

to quickly switch between roles.

It's still a decent tank, but it used to run around it's gun and mobility, at the moment it's more like the weak version of a VK4502 (P) Ausf B.

lol, massive dispersion nerfs, still capable of accurately firing on the move at over 100 meters. Nice tank, I need to try a little harder to get the Ace before it goes.

We may still see the FV215B's 120mm gun as an option for the FV215B 183 though.

Even the worst nerfs they could reasonably biff at it would still only drop it down to the level of the Conqueror, which is itself an excellent tank. So no, not really tier 8 material.

I don't mind if it has Conqueror-level of softness, as long as its stats are that soft as well. Somewhat like the old 215B or something.
