The FV 215 183 needs a major buff.  The aim time, accuracy and armor allow this tank to be penned. That is simply not acceptable. This tank needs Maus armor and the gun handling of a leopard 1. Furthermore the reload is dreadful. I suggest lowering it to 6.0 seconds in between shots. Now I know what you’re thinking right now... ammo capacity. This tank only carries 12 shells. This is a problem. Give the tank 50 shells and make the premium hesh 10 credits per round so the tank doesn’t get too expensive. Other than that I think we just buff the alpha to 1000 for ap and 1900 for hesh. Once you do all of these things, the 183 will be properly balanced.

183 is clearly underpower. Look around. Everyone's driving JPe100 not 183s. The jpe100 has armor and faster reload, its a better tnak and is evidently greater in numbers than the 183. if they make 183 powerer more, they will play 183 and not jpe100, which will change game. The 183 needs camo buff its so hard to play. Its bigger than the heavy tank and this means its easy to see. its a sniper it needs to hide and not be see

183 definitely needs some love. 220 pen for a premium shell is just ridiculously unfair, and it should be buffed to at least 340 pen. And look at the horrendous gun, it's even hard to work at close range, how are you supposed to snipe with it? Should give it the accuracy of a Grille so it can actually snipe.

The 183 needs to be buffed to its PC variant’s alpha, I don’t want to be short changed here.

Replaced? For what a replacement that emphasis on more camping since it has near impenetrable fontal armor with very good side armor lol and a gun that will probably be the most dpm out of any tank. Plus you have the jagpanzer 17cm which is still more useful thanks to having actual useable armor. The nerfed armor on the 183 makes it a fast to destroy and anyway replace that and they use the next the next thing.

The medium and heavy could use buffs. The 183 honestly just needs to be reworked. They can't replace it. Too many people would be up in arms. They can't just directly buff it's stats. Then others would be up in arms. What should be done is to bring it's armor up to PC standards, remove it's premium hesh shell and replace it with a heat/apcr, and adjust it's gun handling appropriately. That way it would still be able to do those hesh rolls with cheap hesh yet not have roflop pen on 1300 alpha rolls that encourage camping in spawn. And the armor would allow it to not get instakilled as soon as it gets spotted.

I'm good at this game I promise

dude i agree with the pen buff but it doesn't need better accuracy, i have the tank and actually its pretty balanced. its the biggest gun in the game besides the jgpz e100, and if it had better accuracy then there would be more 183 in battles and then the game would be unfair. and honestly the pen is not that bad, if you cant pen something from the front thats means you have to move to get shots in which means 183 drivers are not sitting in the back all game. but on that note cannot wait for the badger!!

i mean replacing it would mean a lot, yeah sure the badger has highest dpm in game but you only get that damage if your able to keep shooting people, especially on blitz your not going to be able to constantly shoot. there are things like the maus and jgpze100 and e100 and other highly armored tanks can counter it, you act like its the end of the world, on pc the badger is balanced pretty good, and it actually matches the line its on, so replacing the 183 would be better for the player base. if you don't think that, that's ok because your entitled to your opinion, i'm only stating facts
