Here’s the first info about the replacement of the FV215b 183!

 

The conditions are in fact the same: you need to have the vehicle in your Hangar when the update (that includes the replacement) is released. Everything as before. And now some details about the replacement: why and with what?

 

We plan to replace the TD with a new vehicle, which will correspond better to the game logics of the British branch of armored TD. The name of the new vehicle – FV205.

 

Within the gameplay FV205 will have the same concept of armored TD with very high damage per minute, as its predecessors have. Exactly these two features – damage per minute and armor – will be the key ones for the new top vehicle. It will be able to prove itself both in battles at short distance (by using its armor) and in battles at long distance (due to comfortable aiming parameters). Both in the first and the second cases excellent rate of fire will come in handy. On top of that, this vehicle is quite compact – is of the same size as Foch is, so there will be no problems with the camouflage.

 

 

We are starting the tests and you be ready to get a new vehicle to your Hangar. Good luck on the battlefield!

Looks like a nifty E3 substitute and way better than the WZ-113 in terms of the armor/mobility combo if those armor values are constant across the front plate, with that kind of sloping and gun depression. Might be a fun little tank to play, pity all the preceding tanks are still trash. 

Next goal: 60, and then 62% recents without sealclubbing.

How to achieve this goal: stop playing the T25 pilot.

wait wait wait... [edited] what? 304mm of frontal armor? brilliant gun stats. 120mm with 420 damage? Jesus [edited] they didn't hold back on the FV215b 183 replacement did they. This will replace the special place reserved for my T95 at this rate

 

Just noticed the reload. So it gets slightly longer reload to compensate for slightly more damage so it only gets 20DPM more then the Tortoise stock... I ain't even mad at that. Though I question WGs continued need to give the same gun caliber different damage values 

 

can I be a supertester for this please? Holy [edited] i want to play this thing so badly

Still, 34 kmkm/h, better than Tortoise, also some side hull armor skirt is better than American E3.

So this just like SU-122-54 up-gunned and up-armoired to t10 with more fast firing gun.

 

Wait what?

Substitute and replacement are two completely different words with different meanings... Don't jump to conclusions when you misunderstand what I'm saying.

substituting a player in a sports game is the act of... replacing one player with another. SO yer, saying a substitute for a a tank can hold similar/same meaning as replacing it

 

although this is off topic now so meh, just going to drop it here

Oh boy... just like a Tortoise w/out obvious weakspot but so much more than that.

Substitute

1
a person or thing acting or serving in place of another.

As in, it might fill the same role as the E3, but better, so it can serve in place of the E3. In CW, it'll actually be able to be moved around, instead of being a bunker, and in Randoms, it'll be able to make pushes more effectively. 

 

Trying so hard to ignore my point, jeez...

Last time they tried that the autoloaders became broken AF on the sandbox and everyone slammed the idea. Would be easier to reduced the 122mm damage down to 420 from 440

Any idea which patch the Fv 215b (183) will be replaced in?

Obviously it won't be 9.20.1.

So The Armored Patrol put out "detailed stats" for this tank

 

The Armored Patrol

HP: 2050

Horsepower: 950 HP
Weight: 65 t
Max. weight: 70 t
Power-to-weight ratio: 14.62 HP/t
Max. speed forwards/backwards: 34.3 / -12 km/h
Hull traverse speed: 22 °/s
Horizontal gun laying speed: 16 °/s
Terrain resistance: 1.726 / 1.918 / 2.877
View range: 390 m
Signal range: 782.1 m

Hull armor: 304 / 101 / 31

Gun: OQF 123 mm Mk. 1

Damage: 420 / 420 / 520
Penetration: 272 / 320 / 130
Reload speed: 6.8 s
Accuracy: 0,288
Aim speed: 1.63 s
Horizontal gun constraints: 15 / 15 °
Gun depression/elevation: -10 / +20

 

There's a few things that bother me

  1. Why is the reload speed, accuracy and aim speed suddenly better on the stats they have? (because that reload means that the DPM goes from 3,549 to 3,704 stock)
  2. Where the hell did a 123mm gun come from?

 

As far as I'm aware this tank was meant to get a 120mm and that the British never had a 123mm gun. Did WG just make up their own gun caliber for the British to differentiate between the Tortoise and FV205 guns? Why not just use the 5.5" gun they're throwing on the Conway instead? But this raises the question of damage, because the 122mm guns have 440 damage. Does this mean that 122mm guns are going to have their damage nerfed to 420?

Arty doesn't count, go sit in the corner. 

 

The FV215 was viable for like 1 patch before the Chinese Heavies became good, wasn't it?

How to achieve this goal: stop playing the T25 pilot.

A sloped frontal 304mm armor: what is it's effective value, 400+ ??

Only the JagdE100 can pen that with premium ammo and that's not a guaranteed pen considering the RNG.

Dang, another tank you don't want to meet at a choke point considering that most maps are corridor type.

I guess it's time to dust off the Type 5's  :)


When an enemy Arty "one shots" 2 of your teams' heavies and you're in a heavy tank, you know you're screwed.

A heavy tank should have armor and a big gun, if you don't have either then you're not.

Well I have to shoot gold at the weakspots in my tier 9s to reliably pen it frontally. While being in the fear of being derp ed for 500 with 5 modules broken.

not entirely true. The 304mm of raw armor looks to only be behind the gun and on the "cupolas"
