Should i bother grinding for the FV4202 at all? from what i've seen it's quite mediocre, sometimes just plain bad compared to other tier 10 meds, and it's soon to be replaced (Hopefully) by the much better Centurion AX. Should i bother getting it even though it's quite bad?

It's not bad. Just compared to the other tier X mediums there's nothing really special about it.

 

You can still do very well in it, it has a moderately bouncy turret, autobounce upper glacias and a laser like accurate gun.

 

Plus it has Hesh which you can really mess someone's day up if you can pen that through their back or sides.

The centurion 7/1 is a better tank at level 9 than this disgrace of a teir 10. Pc had to go to the action x as so many unhappy customers. Biggest disappointment for me. It snipes ok and hull downs ok its no E50 which again will kick its [edited]as a teir 9 medium. Not sure why but i have alot more shots bounce compared to the centurion 7/1 . Could say its me but same maps same player so unsure. Hesh not as flexible as heat only good against  flat weak armour.  
Definitely not worth it will be selling mine when my E100 is ready to purchase.

No 7/1 is the best tank for the medium line

It's the best tank with the second-best gun in the game.  The FV4202 makes some sacrifices in the platform to improve the weapon it carries (higher ROF on the L7A1, what's not to like?).  Whether that's a good or bad thing (I'm personally much in favour) is a matter of individual taste.

 

When I've finished unleashed I'm taking the 4202 out to show the Motherland horde that I've got enough pen to do them lengthways, 50m more view range and the accuracy to give them a good seeing-to from any distance at which they care to expose themselves.


Terranis Holds.  FOR THE EMPEROR!

I'd say it is, very good maneuverability, great gun depression and a bouncy upper glacis indeed. It's a unique machine. However don't depend on the turret too much, the turret ring seems to get knocked out more times than I'd like.

I seem to suck badly 2/3 of the time in it, with the other 1/3 throwing down like a rock star.

Theoretically, the 4202 will become a tier 8 premium at some point, though hopefully it'll be buffed because the premium stats released so far are terribad.

It got given a buff after it came out, however that only increased it to the same stats as the Type A Barrel despite clearly using the Type B
