There we are, FVanboys at work. Keep talking like its the hottest thing ever, its a redundant tank with HESH being its only redeeming quality. I wonder how long WG will last when they cater to clans who push their agendas.

Amazing mobility, good armour, great gun, low profile, 410 view range, great HESH, -10 GD, decent dpm..

 

Lets list the other 105 meds that i can remember: 

Leo 1=4202 is better

STB-1=4202 is better

AMX 30= 4202 is better

CAX=4202 is better

M48=M48 is a bit better

 

Its also better than the E-50 and possibly some of the Soviets after the new one arrived nerfed. 

 

What does redundant mean to you?

 

Also, Bunker, pushing WG agenda? :teethhappy:

Erm, the leo has a better gun than the 4202. The 4202 is british so it likes to act like a pool noodle until it is fully aimed.

The 30b gun stats are amazing (apart from the pen), so I would say the 30b has a better gun.

M48 a bit better?!?!?!? The 48 holds the standards for 105 at tier X :)

Used to own it on xbox 360 and it's my opinion that it should keep its og premium HESH because

 

1) it's awesome to have on a flexible flanker like the 4202 and it's also an excellent tool to farm helpless tier VIIs.

 

2) it's the thing that made it unique back in the day and even more so now that we also have the CAX.

 

3) brit tank = HESH

The Leo is outdated and regarded as powercrept by most i know. WG made the AMX 30b pointless too. Those 2 tanks are a fair bit worse than the 4202 on the whole. A gun doesn't make a tank great by itself, if it did, the Tortoise would rule tier 9.

 

 The 48 is a beast tbf.

Well I find the 30b is an absolute monster now. That gun has never performed better and the turret and upper plate buff make it get some ridiculous bounces, the pen is lower but that isn't really an issue. The leo is still usable though, people just don't like being squishy :).

 

But I definitely think the gun is 80% of what makes a tank good. The 20% is the platform it is on. Give a tank a crappy gun and it will not perform, but if you give a crappy tank a good gun it will. I mean you can look at all stock grinds :), until you get that top gun (or something with top gun standards), you will have to try very hard to be significant.

I hit a tank for 2 hit points.....yes 2 HP with a premium HESH shell in my FV4202 today!!!

I found that hilarious.

That's why I find it funny when people rave about the FV4202's DPM with HESH rounds. Any form of HE round is very unpredictable with its damage rolls.

Fair play that's a ridiculously low roll for the HESHstar. Lol

rarely use the hesh..

I like the FV..but I like all of the English meds from the Crommie on...so I am biased.

 

Shoot then move is what you have to do. Don't trade hitpoints.

Honestly if I could choose between the 4202's gun or CAX i would like the option to have a choice for either one. I personally do not carry premium HESH because why spend extra silver when the normal does the same job. Most tanks I am going to hit with HESH have less than 105mm of armor anyways

This.  I read how great they are against Mediums from any angle so I shot a Centurion 7/1 in the front hull and did about half the damage a penetrating APCR shell would have done for four times the Silver cost. Wheeee. :sceptic:

 

Between the cost, the small amount of extra damage it does over the standard APCR, and the lowered penetration I really still haven’t seen the value of it. 


I hope to one day be wealthy enough to be considered eccentric rather than just plain nuts.

HESH rounds absolutely. Haven't even come close to playing Centurion AX after purchasing Patton. Patton does everything better. FV4202 has a reason to play because of this difference. I saw a lot of lights today and I was super stoked to be in the 4202... it absolutely shreds lights with HESH.
