I’ve taken screen shots of the armor profile of the 215b in the live and test clients. There are some buffs and some nerfs the lower front plate is stronger but the turret cheeks are a little weaker. The Pics are bellow. Current is on the left new on the right.

Did they buff the terrible weakspot when sidescraping – the fighting compartment?
No it’s in the pics same armour thickness
It’s Wargaming, what do you think?
Oh my god … why are they nerfing the turret cheeks. Other changes look good but nerfing the turret cheeks is BS imo. It was already annoying when a T54 cunt pens your turret with heat. Now the chance of them bouncing is even less. Ohh the made the cupola smaller … oh wait its useless because the part they made smaller is autobounce anyway so it doesnt matter. Seems like they dont really want “everybody” running around with good and competitive T10 specials
I was expecting slight buffs, like more armor on the sides and a sightly better rooftop so it does not get overmatch by 155mm guns, so kinda disappointed
The only armour change this needed was the sidescraping part….forgot what it’s called….no one in the world ever asked for a lower plate buff….but WG will continue being WG….sigh…
none of this makes sense, this has worse armor than the tier 9 and if SConq buffs come true, this tank will be pointless
That LFP buff is so pointless, its not like anything is gonna bounce off it still at best it means HESH doesnt work as reliable…
ooh wow now fv will be really strong. this lower plate from 76mm to 102mm will make it unpenetrable…..
And that was everything we ever want for fv. buffing lower plate so t6 tanks which are the main enemy of a t10 can maybe bounce now…..
PS: And I want more t8 prem tanks pls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111111111
They made the Cupola weaker from the Front, added 2 flat parts on the Outside with around 150. Redicolous. Conqueror Turret is much stronger than the FV´s.
The “Buffs” they made are useless
Conqueror Turret must be better then FV…
and i just bought this thing… ofc gotta nerf it now
