Here is another portion of interesting info about the British vehicles.

 

Today we’ve got some updated info about the new Tier VIII HT. Its main features: armored turret, medium mobility, premium status, British accent. Please welcome the Caernarvon AX.

 

Within the gameplay, the new premium tank has the same concept as British heavies have – armored turret, comfortable gun and medium mobility. And also screens on the turret as a heritage from the elder brother – both stylish and helps to protect from HEAT.

 

 

To sum up, this gentleman from Britain will match its company – it’ll be good in fighting and earning credits. Good luck on the battlefield!

did they put the burster plates on the AX turret just for this? I'm not even mad, this is amazing. Regardless of how fake it is, I want one

Isn't the Super Conqueror same? Its just Conqueror with more Layer cake on hull and turret.

And they now somewhat resembling T28 prot turret with no cheeks weakspot. I guess Caravan AX is the closest one resembling Super Pershing, but without easy-to-hit cupola. Hulldown alot, HE comes.

Change the new turret with the Caernarvon, use the exact same model from 9.20 Caernarvon, put the same burster plates on just like the Conqueror and Super Conqueror, yay that's another premium to sell. $$WG$$

 

WG logic again (slow claps)

No I'm not surprised based on the recent premium are complete clone, but I expected the first ever tier 8 British premium heavy will be somewhat different from the rest, like the FV4202. I expected it to be like a Chieftain prototype or a conqueror with the Type B barrel (historically mounted in the first wave of production.)

Wah, when I read it earlier I thought it was to replace the OLD Caern. (Must finish reading the whole message next time)

But upon closer inspection this is actually a T8 British Premium HT? OMG

With the infamous British trait of poor reverse speed (accdg to them: The Brits don't retreat hence there's no need for reverse)

Arty would have a field day of this poor tank just like it's T7 predecessor the forgotten FV201 (A45) which is as rare as a chicken's tooth.

This would be WG's answer to have a British counterpart for the popular Amercian Premium HT T26E5 $$$$.


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.

Actually yer, kinda disappointed they didn't buff up the FV201 in this patch. Maybe in the future? Personally I feel it should be a tier 6 but that might just be me. I'm just sad they didn't give the FV215b a HD model as a parting gift or give it and the FV215b 183 the hull armor changes (considering they're on the Conqueror hull)

That or they could've given it a pref. MM.

On the subject of the FV215B HD; I think they did ... kinda, not 100% sure.

Well, i recall TAP said HD model for FV215B is ready, i guess they will put it when they swap it to Super Conq.

part of me hopes they give it the spaced armor off the S.Conq :trollface: #OffTopicFTW

 

Going on topic, the damage and DPM of this Caernarvon AX are completely mediocre now compared to the new 32-pdr gun on the standard. I place a vote for the Caernarvon AX to have more powercreep and be given the 105mm L7. It's already at tier 8 on the Charioteer after all.

If they did, then it wouldn't be British "like" seeing that British HTs have "pop" guns on a slow platform with virtually no armor for a heavy and very poor reverse.

yer... but it's a premium. Just wouldnt feel like a WG balance if it didn't have power creep somewhere. Besides, it's the Centurion AX turret, may as well stay true and give it the gun
