was curious why the FV215B 183 has a better camo rating than the Grille 15?

Grille= 24 concealment

FV215b 183= 30 concealment

 

but the FV215b 183 is bigger than the Grille 15.

Camo isn't just about the size of the tank in terms of width, it also has to do with the height of the tank and the Grille 15 is one of the tallest tanks in the game.

Agreed but i have a question, Why does the 430 U have more Camo than the K-91? Other than Shell Velocity it's kind of redundant.

Basically WG entirely screwed the pooch on "balancing" the K-91.

Was the same on PC before release too but K-91 should have camo close to the Object 416 as it's practically the same size and meant to be a TD Glass Cannon.

It should also have the highest dpm of all the Russian meds but it has the same dpm as the 416 for some reason.

That reason is spreadsheets.

Not only can the 183 out spot the Grill,   it can 1 shot it.

When the Grille was introduced I had hoped it would be the counter to the 183 and the Waffle.  Unfortunately that was not to be true.  In fact, I would rather play the baby Waffle or the Borsig before the Grille.
I'm just saying.....

The Grille is amazing, however it requires a very, very unorthodox playstyle. For a good while i tried to play it like a Borsig but it was awful. With a very aggressive, high risk, high reward playstyle though it can be devastating, and alot of fun. Of course that does mean sometimes things don't go to plan, you get yolo'd by 152mm toting Sheridan's and explode but it's most fun way to play it, imo.

When I do play it, I try to shoot, run and reposition and shoot again.  I do ok that way, but it's still a get sited and die type of tank.  Especially at tier 10.

This about some it up,     it has good mobility and should be used.

 

Although it didn't live up to many people's expectations I like the Grill.
