it has nothing going for it to be fighting tier 9, it even has trouble fighting most tier 8s

 

armor? it has none, the Tiger I, Churchill VII, IS, O-I , 45TP,  T29, M4A3E2, Black Prince  and many others have waaay better armor.

Mobility? it is on par with or worse than most of these tanks ^^^^^ and most other tanks which have better armor.  (top Speed 36kph, Power to Weight 14.32hpt)

DPS? it has poor DPS of 150 a shot with a 13.95 RoF, so it has to expose it's self constantly with no armor and subpar mobility. (DPS= Damage per Shot)

penetration? it has awful pen. 171mms of base pen which is worse than the IS and Dreadnought (175mms of pen) which both make up for the poor pen with 390 and 750 average damage a shot. 

accuracy? it has lack luster accuracy of 0.35 which even the Black Prince has better at 0.34 even though it has the same rate of fire and DPS but better penetration by  29mms at 200mms of average pen.

 

this tank needs some sort of buff, by giving it better armor and penetration or giving it PMM.

If it had much better turret armor it would be fine, now it's armor is quite bad. Turret armor buff needed...

Its a good tank but only really when top tier and sometimes, depending on opponents, middle tier. Most tier 9s just butter the turret with normal rounds and as for the "shoot the sides" reply, not always possible as the tier 9s are normally always much much faster. 

 

Coming up against a Conq' for example if always a nightmare as if hull down (which every Conq' should be), there is no chance a FV201 could get through.

 

Really is in dire need of either PMM or a slight turret buff (not to centurion standard obviously) and the Churchill black prince gun stats (pen and damage).

Maybe I get great mm or something but I honestly don't think it needs a buff. I'd take having the full 10 degrees of gd at the the front though.

 

Its prem rounds will pen the sides of most tanks right?

This tank is in desperate need of a penetration buff (same as the Black Prince) and a turret armor buff. Other than that I like the tank. If no buff than give it PMM.

IIRC, when the British tanks got turret buffs fairly recently, this tank didnt.  I still think an oversight on WG's part.

Sadly its not as WG never buff the older tanks that really need it. Bearing in mind this can meet thtings like the Minuteman, it does need something

It needs to do a bit more damage per round, I’d even take slower load times. It just won’t kill anything, or equal out on hit points...ever...

I ended up putting a request for a buff in the game suggestions part too in case it gets more visibility, I really think the tank needs pmm:
