Taking on a full strength AX with only 12hp... and winning! I knew he was there and made the rookie mistake of giving him my back but things worked out in the end. 

 

 

The turret armor does it's job at 2:09 secs and the hull armor at 2:17 secs (although this could've been a lower turret hit) and I would probably have bitten the dust at 2:18 secs without Controlled Impact. Also worth noting that the reload speed drops way below the AX to 6.3 secs because of Adrenaline Rush. Sometimes the difference between living and dying is just a lot of little things all adding up. 

 

What a dream this tank is, but sadly I don't play the game enough these days to think about getting more than one or two MOE's. Thankfully can play her right through The Machine contract though.

Nice game.  I love the FV4202.

Very well rounded tank.  I should probably sell my CAX...it is not been touched ever since the FV dropped.

I have Jim White in a Churchill I waiting to go up the line to the conqueror. Last Stand + Rush is going to be a nasty surprise endgame.

I picked up Jim White in chest over the holidays but unfortunately with 19 and 24 skill Brit crews I dismissed him. Bringing the Golden Miller's reload down to sub 6 seconds would mean even more awesomeness but there's no way I see starting from scratch putting in the effort to get another A-team together (and miss out on all those other "little" things ie. view-range, gun handling, safety, mobility, etc.)... that was 7k+ games in the 4202P and thousands upon thousands in the Chieftain and CGC et al. :ohmy: 

 

Interesting that I have heard the argument that AR is a waste of time as "how often is one on less than 10% health?". As someone who leads the charge I'm am often running on fumes, as my low survival rate can confirm. :teethhappy:

I remember the other day I was having a one v one with a full health STB 1 in my full health 4202. I destroyed him without even taking a hit as I was hull down and he couldn't pen me. Definitely one of my favourites was my first tier 10 too

Ahhh....I was wondering how many skills your crew had if they had  Adrenaline Rush as a skill.  

What skills do they have?  

I have Jim White, but he hasn't been trained. 

I do have two 12 skill crews...they are trained the same except one has Snakebite skill and the other has a standard gun handling skill.

12 is plenty lol. The crew has a lot of the one's not really necessary 99% of time, like the parachute skill and Armorer if the gun ever breaks. And the three camo skills (Muffled Shot actually does a fair job with the 8's 20-pounder) along with both vision skills (I use GLD/VStab/Rammer in the tier 8 4202 instead of Optics as the combo allows me to target an enemy more efficiently with aggressive peak-a-boo where aim-time is everything), and since I run rations and premium fuel on occasion (from the pre-4.6 buff on the tier 8 when the hp/tn was so poor) the skills to sub a med kit and extinguisher were necessary: JoT, Pain Tol, Prev Maint and FE... both models really fly with 105 octane.

FV4202 gets put back in the game but they expect owners to buy the centurion 7/1 again and grind the XP again to again research the FV4202 and buy it again.

 

Screw Wargaming I've got better things to do than get mugged off by these thieving scumbags

First 4202 Radley in less than 5 minutes playing off the front!

 

 

At 3:33 secs I remembered my lesson from Marko Ramius and turned into the warhead before it could arm itself. :teethhappy:

 

I must ironically thank the mle.54 driver who pinged "Negative" after I flanked the enemy he was face hugging for my first kill (only set to record last 5 minutes so couldn't capture). Incidentally I had spearheaded the corner at B2 putting two shells into said T10 before my team rolled in behind me a minute later. Basically it was an FU moment where this guy wasn't going to get any more support from me and I pulled a 180 and went onto one of the best games I've had. He ended up capping with only one red remaining depriving me of kill #9 on the Obj 257. C'est la vie.

Lol

 

I never got on with CAX so took the crew and ground out Chieftan line. Bought Snakebite and ground out some skills for Cax. Now instead he's going into FV202 as I hear its better,particularly it's gun handling.

 

Few million silver to go before buying it.

Wow, that was awful kind of those 2 guys to get off base so that you could get your 9th kill. Gotta love those type of players.

Great first post. When the 4202 was removed, I believe you got 2 free prem tanks, right?

I'm relatively new and best Brit crew is 5 skills. Training up Snakebite medium crew and eventually a last stand heavy crew. Jim's currently in the Church I and 10% reload improvement on the fast firing us is pretty funny at low health.

Why the upper front plate doesn't bounce at such high angle? Progetto 65 bounces more. And the turret is cheese disappointment - shells through gun is ridiculous.

Big damage game this morning, one of my best ever. 

 

 

 

Almost got a little ahead of myself but luckily the armor held up here.

 

From the enemy's perspective...

If you sold the 7/1 and dont have enough XP to just unlock the 4202, you dont deserve it.

 In this particular game my 4202 bounced 3.4k dmg against tier X... my 51mm UFP, 170mm turret pre-4.6 4202p. ;)

Spoiler

 

Everything about this tank's slopes points to outstanding armor design. A fair job by the developers for keeping her in check, although the initial tier 8 de-buff to 36kph was a little heavy handed. At tier 10 the 4202 and M48 are certainly the top dogs for the best medium on the field.

Recently got the tank myself after debating between this and the CAX (A syou do)

 

While I am enjoying the tank, I'm in agreement with V4nquished79, it's reputation for bounces is exaggerated.
