I was looking at the trade in tanks and was thinking of even trading my 112 which I never play anymore for the FV201 black edition.I didnt care for the 112 because the gun is terrible,Has anyone played the FV and have any opinions on it?

It's a slow, fat Centurion a tier lower with hardened butter for armour.

It's functional, but there are better options.

You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.

It's great get it. It doesn't get full 10 degrees of gun depression over the front though. Good gun with great apcr round, reasonable mobility, it's a tier 7 heavium. Obviously the fact it's a black tank means it's great for crew training.

 

Highly recommend it.

Got it yesterday, played one game, mid tier, was solid enough.  Low alpha, high ROF, seemingly good gun handling, did well enough on ridge lines against a collection of same and higher tier mediums.  Probably not great against the better tier 7 heavies.  Happy with the tank in general after
those initial impressions.

I dunno why it didn't get the same buffs the Black prince got not long ago.

Please get it.  I don't see enough of them on the battlefield.  Free kills to anyone.  Garbage armor, garbage alpha.  Honestly who cares about the Black bonus?  You'll get more xp in any good tier 8, Atomic, Diamondback, 4202p, etc, because those tanks are actually good.

I have both I'm pretty sure I've played the fv201 more. Don't get me wrong the bulldog is great and has pmm but the very slow speed gets old. I'm usually in the mood to play the 201 whereas the bulldog is one I play it had too much to drink or tired.

 

If you get both you won't regret it. One other thing to remember about the bulldog is that the only other tier 6 pmm is the tog so you may end up only playing it solo if your friends don't have one

Made a review a while back, if nothing else it'll show the tank in action. If I remember correctly this vid shows what it's like top tier and bottom tier.

Not a great tank and needs buffs but traded a T34 what i barely use for a FREE FV201 Black so will come in handy for XP Ops.

Don't do it! Although I personally like FV201, it's not great vehicle my any standard. If it's turret were better, I would probably recommend it, but in it's current state, not. 112 is awesome, really strong tank and one of the best tier 8 tanks that have PMM. Don't trade it away.

funny enough they actually did buff it which helps a bit. but it still needs more. It is a fun tank and glad i traded it my M51 for it.

+1/-1 made a big difference to the FV201, still feels a little underpowered though, needs the same treatment the Black Prince got or made into a PMM Tank like the Panther M10.
