For the people that are wondering what am i talking about, the blitz version of the FV 183 has a paper thin turret armour. This is not actually how it is on the PC version where it's turret armor is actually somewhat reliable. 

 

The result of this turret armour nerf is that you get focus fired by every single enemy tank in sight the moment that you get spotted. The reason being that you have the reputation of being the 'death star' and your armour is crap meaning you are super easy to hit and kill even for Tier 8 medium tanks. They can pen you straight through the huge turret cheeks without much effort. 

 

The only way to pay this tank atm is to stay behind the main force and shoot from behind. However the joke of an accuracy and aiming time make that pretty frustrating to do. You rely more on RNG than your actual aiming skill.

 

This tank really needs a turret buff like on the PC version.

 

Clarification on what i mean about the difference in armour on the PC version and blitz: The turret armour on the PC version was buffed significantly with patch 9.5 after which it was reliably able to bounce tier 8 shots at least.  

The following is the link where you can see the changes:

http://ftr.wot-news....-armor-changes/

 

I think being able to bounce shots from tanks two tier lower with the turret is not a big demand. Right now even tier 8 mediums punch straight through the turret which kinda seems unfair at times. I have had great games with this tank including a few 7k dmg+ however it is still my worst performing tier 10. I think a slight turret buff to bounce tier 8's at least is justifiable. 

 

Update: Ok maybe not a armour buff but at least a slightly better gun? I mean the gun in its current state is a nightmare at anything more than short to medium range. That insane bloom + joke of an aim time + bad accuracy really makes it a pain in the a** to play. Literally the only thing this tank has going for it is its alpha. It a sh*t tank in every other regard!

Tank* you mean for the last paragraph?

 

Sorry, but I'm not here to be a spell-checker, haha.:trollface:

Yeah man, I'm totally on with you for that, the FV215 (183) is an amazing tank, even though I don't have it in my collection yet but I can telling just from the battles I see it as the enemy it's darn powerful!

 

but armor-wise, it just looks like it needs a few tweaks like the PC version to give it more of a nightmare than just a scare.

this TD can be very deadly in the right hand, giving it a strong turret doesn't sound right

 

getting focused fire is to be expected as this TD is a prime target and should be removed from the battle field ASAP

Turret armour is the same like titustanker mentioned...just that with the highlighted colours in blitz when in sniper mode makes it easier for enemies to aim at you....

When you want to succeed as much as you want to live to breathe, then only you will succeed.

Also If You still insist To buff the Turret armor., it will much more difficult to handle., and usually come with price like reduced HP.,we're already surprised by Russian TD's Buff and I personally didn't want something like FV 183 got buffed in the short time span

Just.,Just  Play Fallout., this gaem succ balls

There are many TDs who can be easily penned by 2 tier lower tanks frontally.

And then there are TDs which are hard to pen even by same tier tanks.

 

Each have it's own driving style.

The difference between the other TDs that can be penned by mediums 2 tier lower and this is that they have guns with acceptable accuracy. So sitting back and sniping is a reasonable option. However the accuracy and aim time along with the horrendous bloom make sniping not quite feasible in this tank. This coupled with the difficulty of aiming with a touch screen in general makes this tank very underwhelming to play. 

My other tier 10's are the IS7, E100, T110E3 and the T62. All of them are better to play in most scenarios than the FV215 183. Thus a buff of some sought is really deserved I feel. Either to the gun handling or maybe to the turret armor like they did on the PC version.

The 183 is an ambush tank, but you pay a heavy price (death) if you miss or the shot trolls you

well Vk-45-02b armor in blitz is different from the pc version for a reason. same case as fv-183, if you make the armor scheme identical for blitz and pc, both of this tank would be OP i think.

I'm sorry. It seems you're suggesting a buff for what is without a doubt the most OP tank in the game. I bounce A LOT off the turret of the thing as is. I see no need for a buff.

@ravager

 

so for obj140 to be more dpm than pc is acceptable?

Because it will be weak if without such buff in some update?

(heard from my friends, so can't remember which update he said)

 

buff on fv215b 183 to pc turret won't harm I believe 

poor accuracy and depression will net off the turret

and it's not an turret that can turn 360 degree....
