So, basically what it is now…. We’ll played WG well played. Maybe if we own the current version we will receive this one when it changes?
This is a premium tank. It doesn’t replace anything.
I know. It’s a joke but it’s basically the current tier 8 right now.
It is the curret onw with buffed turret armor and no weakspot under the turret on the hull, and I like to see british tech tree finally geting some love 😀
The FV201 (A45) [the current British premium heavy tank] is a tier 7; therefore, WG won’t be replacing a tier 7 heavy with a tier 8 heavy.
…… I was joking. Plus theses are two different vehicles. I wouldn’t expect them to do that.
FV201(A45) changes ploz.
Very nice turret :0 Perfect for hull down and ridgeline gameplay 🙂
Another premium? Tier 8!? Let the fun begin.
To be fair, the British were desperately needing a tier 8 prem heavy for a very long time. The Russia, US, and Germany have no excuse to need another tier 8 prem heavy, but the British? It’s about damn time I say.
I hope a US and British T8 Premium TD will also come. With Siege mode mechanic in the game the Brits could get finally the FV4401 Contentious.
When all seems to be going smoothly, WG decides to go overboard once again.
Add a cup of tea and a picture of the queen as skin and sell it as expensive as Patriot, Defender, Liberte, Guard,…
Appears to be slightly improved (current version) Caern’ + spaced armour on the turret plus a view range nerf.
F*** yeah, new Chrysler, only this time with pen! It’s great that it has armor like the tier 10. WG is a bunch of degenerates
Old Caravan became tier 8 prem, eh.. Now this is what a premium should be, slightly weaker than the regular tank in the tree, and a British tier 8 HT to boot.. Diggin’ it, might get it once it’s finalized and out..
I really don’t get why suddenly almost every tier 8+ medium and heavy tank is getting impenetrable turrets and good gundepression… basically becoming a clone of oneanother. on the other hand there is the kv-4 – getting removed tiny irrelevant weakspots and still havin a giant flat 180mm strong turret including a protruding giant tumor on top of that.
No comment on other tanks but the Caern’ always had a strong turret and -10 gun depression.
Well until they buggered it up with the HD nerfs to the Cent’ turrets and hd to bodge on the CAX turret. (still strong and -10) So this isn’t changeing much at all.
In fact the only real change is that it has some HEAT spammer protection.
+ the new indestructible turret -meta is making the tanks obsolete who have only that going on for them – T34, T30, M103 and even the T110E5 (yes i know it was ridiculous OP for quite a while, but the completely nerfhammered it to oblivion now and every other tank has a better turret with smaller weak spots now) come to mind.
The entire roof of the first 3 i listed are overmatched by almost anything they face and the cupolas are huge (especially the M103 and again the T110E5)
I have never had problems with “everyone” penning my T30 turret but M103 and E5 are pretty weak regarding armour
This is a Caernarvon just improved in many aspects and worse in none! What the hell, give this shit some drawbacks
It has only 230 alpha damage. Makes sense with the gun, of course, but I would not buy any more premiums with such mediocre alpha. They just don’t cut it against higher tiers.
Remember that the Caernarvon is getting the 32-pdr Mk II. Thus this will have better armor (maybe) and the standard Caernarvon will have a better gun. Since they are changing the turret on the Caernarvon, it might not even have better armor, just different.
By Christmas, WG’s goal will be fulfilled: half the tanks are premiums, 90% tier 8, 75% HT’s. Gotta milk those pesky opiniative west european sluts, not forgetting the russians, because reasons…
To me looks like a tier 10 could make canervon tier 9 and faster or keep it at tier 8 with canervon 7/1 as tier 9
so, now we have a tier 7 and a tier 8 prem brit heavy??
when wil they buff the fv 4201 (a45) ??
ment the fv 201 (a45)……
About time the British got a tier 8 premium heavy.
