Looks interesting... 

 

FV4004 and Charioteer pics in circulation. 

 

Do we expect tiers 7-10?

 

Speculate away!

Just when I almost convinced myself to get that drunken Irish tank comes the cheap regular alternative.

well. If u ask me, the wait was too long.

ln other news I’m glad we are over with the Chinese thingies. 

Waiting for the Swedish now.

I want just that, and replay files.

Pics are on Discord and Telegram, both showing fine examples of British oooomph on the bridge at Castilla - sadly neither allow direct links to here..

No idea at what tier they will start at.  Looks like I will have to re buy the AT15 after all this time lol.

Maybe not... The Charioteer is a Cromwell hull with a bigger turret and a 20pdr fitted. Sod all armour, though, and atrocious view range - the real thing had an extra crewman as a dismounted external observer. But an actual real tank, for a change. Really an SPG, I guess.

And given that the lower tiers from the line in PC WOT haven’t been shown, perhaps this line will come from the tier 6 Cromwell?

 

Challenger => Charioteer => Conway => FV4004?

According to the Facebook page they are Charioteer T VIII and FV4004 T IX.

guess in old days it would have been a grind from the bottom ... and now it would probably start anywhere 5+

i miss those days where low tier were suddenly rushed by those famous super Unis (before re-re-reroll was a thing)

seeing those tier10- only pros, driving a tier 2 in a turbo double super uni platoon was fun.

I think it's extremely unlikely that WG will start this line at Tier V.  So, no Archer.

Finally some love for the Brits :-)

Soooo looking forward to this new semi-line of TDs.

FV4004 is tier IX, tier X is going to be FV4005 II. 

Now, WG also said that they won't touch DeathStar yet (not replacing it with FV217 Badger), so we will have 2 huge caliber TDs at tier 10. But DeathStar will be much better choice in that case, while FV4005 II will be easier to grind.

They've not announced the tier X yet, AFAIK.

You’re right; it was late, I was tired...

 

possibly: 

 

Challenger => Charioteer => FV4004 Conway => FV4005 .... but ....

 

WG have removed the FV215 183 from WOT PC, so there’s scope to bring the Badger in after the Tortoise and put the Deathstar after the Conway...  (much like the rejigging after the Mauschen/VK100/VK72 were introduced into the German tech tree) - Would we really want two Derpmonsters at the end of the British TD lines?

For now, WG said that FV215b(183) won't be removed when the new line arrives.

BUT... 

It doesn't mean they won't do it some time after the arrival of the new line.

There are 2 possibilities:

1. FV215b(183) will be replaced by FV217 Badger, while FV4005 Stage II will be on top of the new line.

2. FV4005 Stage II won't be released, and FV215b(183) will be moved to the top of the new line, while FV217 Badger will replace previous spot of FV215b(183).

If WG introduces FV4005 Stage II whilst not removing FV215b(183) there is no reason to go for FV4005 Stage II.
