It's a bigger indien panzer, with less armor. Have fun by ramming the hell out of tanks.

-Accurate

-No Armored

-Piece

-of

-Poo

-However agile af

 

Makes poor credits for a T8 premium.

It has a decent gun and great maneuverability for it's size, so use that to your advantage, always be on the move and try to angle that front plate, it's good at peaking out of cover but watch out for your butt because it's longer then whatever cover you have.

The FCM is currently my favorite tank to grind credits, because it's a very challenging tank. It's my most challenging tier 8 tank, but that's why I love it.

I've carried in the FCM, however I don't consider it a carry tank as it's a support tank. It's a difficult tank to have consistent games in battle after battle. You'll have games where the armor will get pounded and due to the size you can't seem to avoid enemy fire.

Play into the strength of the tank, which are spotting, sniping, and peek a boo all the while relocated when necessary.

If you are facing heavies and side scraping with FCM, then you are playing into the strength of heavy and weakness of FCM. Don't do it. Relocate and find a more viable target or act as support.

The FCM can side scrape and bounce shots, but that's not a strength so don't rely on it and really only use it when you must.

When you peek a boo always pay attention to enemy firing cadence and try to time your shot in between. Also I tend to fire as I'm returning for cover at the tail end of the peek a boo. So you are not lingering at all when you peek out and as you are moving back into cover fire at enemy. It's a fluid out and in with no pause (i.e. Don't pause to aim, aim while moving). This makes it harder for enemy to hit you since you are constantly moving and you are more likely to bounce enemy shots.

Many FCM players will initially sniper from a distance at the beginning of the battle and the move in as the battle gets going. One reason for sniping at the beginning is that enemy players recognize the FCM armor and will all target you if you are on front line.

The key thing is to always have the accurate gun of the FCM singing.

Me, I play the FCM aggressively and I will rarely ever snipe from a distance at the beginning of battle. Most times I'm playing peek a boo and relocating.

 

Also remember FCM is a great spotter when used properly.    I can't tell you how many times I've had low 1000 damage in a tier 9 battle, but I was the top performer as I did ALL the spotting for the team.

agree with most of the good advices.

 

however most people will die from exposing themselves too early. The tank has acceptable viewrange, but the worst camo. Anyone will see you before you see them, if you are not careful and behind cover. This is the main difficulty of this tank, as long as the red team is unspotted, you might receive multispank if you are not careful enough, and you won't even know from where.

 

thats why staying far making damage is a good idea for most. Better than dying at minute 1:00

 

this said the armor has become tier7 medium average level, which works against... Tier7 mediums. It can relocate often, so use that as well. I use Vstabs and GLD because, well I need to hit things. With the rammer its full. As much as I would like optics or something, I can't. 

 

Its quite a demanding tank to play , but it's never boring.

I Know, I see no problem There. 

I was underlining that it was a simple joke. Also I have seen plenty of one line post written at least 80% Spanish, usually for second degree irony sarcasm or quotes. I think it's ok once in a while.

I'm not any good at this game, I do ok in certain tanks, I got the FMC at blitz fair from a crate, in over 14000 battles never got a raisin. Use that gun at a distance whenever possible. The mobility to relocate and that great accuracy. My one and only raisin I owe to the fmc's gun and mobility. Use those to things to the advantage of your play style would be my noobish advice.

Then keep doing it -- you will get warning points only once in a while - so all will be fine.

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.
