This striking Tier VI soldier is ready to follow your orders. The tank doesn't boast sturdy armor, but it features great mobility and rate of fire. It is most effective when supporting allied vehicles from long range and can easily circle a clumsy enemy. Moreover, it will regularly earn you a considerable number of credits in battle. Complete the Sentinel Challenge and seize the AC IV Sentinel!

Can it get a Wombat Attachment for on the turret?

Ooh, I might get one!
Though the real one in Cairns, which I think WG bought and gave on permanent loan to AusArmour, doesn't have the naughty MG port.

Looks like an easy free tank to me something like the pz.ivs event.
But the main reward is a bit unpopular I guess I didn’t see this tank often in the battle and there is absolutely nothing about it in forum or YouTube.

130 wins in tier 10 (with an average of 1000 experience). If you use premium, boosters and rating battles then will be even lesser. Like someone said on this forum, if the tank is easy to get then for sure the tank is meh ;-)

 

About popularity, it was sold 2-3 times (if memory serves me well) along with its tier 4 brother.


Thank you for removing timers and spare parts, now please do the same with Military Honor !

Seems like an interesting event then Ribble - what's your opinion on the lewd mg port? 
-WHB- is still recruiting! Contact me in the game, on Discord, wherever I'm available, and we can settle the rest out!

Here's the Mk I:

And the Mk IV:

As you can see, the latter seems to have undergone a rather overenthusiastic circumcision.

Well it makes tank memorable. But to be honest i wonder what tank's constructors were thinking :teethhappy:

As killerkiller777 notes it’s a pretty meh tank in most hands, the gun is pretty good but you are easy pickings for the Soviet and German meds’ in your tier and vs tier vii mediums it is just not funny…

Having said that I really like mine and still do take it out now and then as it’s different to most of the tanks I drive regularly…

If you’re careful and get a bit of luck it can do very well, overall I think it’s well worth having a good event, looking forward to getting the camo for mine and other free stuff, nice one WG…

There is some older stuff about it, which has a link to a review video…

http://forum.wotblitz.eu/index.php?/topic/46405-another-review-ac-iv-sentinel/

There’s also a couple of other good videos about it…

In a shameless piece of self promotion, you can see my Ace in it too…

Behind is a vickers machine gun. So the off center barrel is due to the water jacket. 

Then they needed to cover the rest of the port. This port could of been designed for other uses.

End result is something you can happily wave in the face of your enemy.

Did I dream this?  I thought I’d read you only earned trophies for 1st 40 battles in a week?

Different event Mjr - this applies to trophies for rating battles. the ones for which you can buy spring season containers.

The sentinel ev is independent and on top of that you collect cheap gold in money boxes.

I must say WG have redeemed themselves a bit after recent mishaps. Nicely done guys.

All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
