As I’m nearing the end of my IS4 grind, I am trying to decide which line to grind next. 

 

 

Obj. 263: I stopped off at the tier 7 Su100m1

 

Fv215b: I stopped off at the tier 8 Caernarvon 

 

 

My stats in Tier 10 are so so And any opinions would be appreciated.

 

 

 

Thanks I’m advance.

Definitely the british line. I stopped at the SU-101 because the gun grind is atrocious. Your conqueror stock will be a pain because it will just be a tier 9 carn. However the conqueror with that top gun is legendary. As someone who has done the whole british mation, the fv215b makes the whole line worth it. People underrate the tank because it takes braincells to use unlike an IS7 or something.

It really depends on your preference, both tier tens have good ROF. The 263 is faster but of course you get that fast turning turret in the fv.
I do not have much experience with the 263 but it can be quite annoying to pen from the front and the mobility does catch people put.
The fv215b is an effective counter against mediums because of the traverse and DPM so theres that.

I personally think you should do the british, not many people play the fv215b and it can catch people out. Good traverse speed with that DPM means you literally cannot be circled. Also personally i dont want to deal with the su-100m1 and 101 with 0 gun depression, elevation and literally no arc [edited]. Thats just my two cents on the two lines

FV 215B has an awkward turret, low alpha, and is very slow. Armor is unreliable. Meds are largely irrelevant at tier 10 these days, so don’t need countering, leaving the FV roleless. 

Caernarvon is good, Conqueror not so much. Mixed bag on the grind.

 

Obj 263 is awkward because of the lack of turret and gun depression mixed with weak sides, but its alpha is good AND its dpm is insane with good speed and TD level pen and camo values. Frontal armor is pretty reliable as well. 

 

SU100M1 is like a T54 sans turret and armor at tier 7. If you can avoid being hit, it’s a very good tank. SU-101 is a bit mediocre. I’ve heard the 100mm is the way to go; I ground it using 122 and it was just ok so I’d recommend trying the 100 instead. SU-122-54 has great dpm, but is challenging to play well. Can be very good. 


Currently Grinding: T54E1, M103, WZ-120, Foch, T95

Tech Tree Lines Completed: 22/27

I have the 263. 

Its fun, but weird. 

It doesn’t play like any other tank or TD and most people either love it or hate it; whereas the FV is a tank and plays like one. 


Yeah, I'm back. Let's not make a big deal about this.

Idk, when im in game, I am more afraid of the fv because it is turreted.

I have both and I would suggest the 215b. The lack of gun depression on the 263 is annoying and the 215b is just sexy.:girl:

215b requires a great deal of skill to do well in, while the Yolowagon requires pointing at red. 

 

I vastly prefer the 215b, but because of the armor profile (no sides or back) and front needs to be hulldown or drastically pitched it can be at the mercy of a lot of teams.

Sacrilege!

Next you’ll be saying the same thing about my beloved T-95!

T95 requires more skill in some ways because it needs to get to places in time to be effective.  

 The Yolowagon has s lot more mobility- of course it’s very easy to get into trouble.

Yeah thank you all for replying. It’s definitely a tough decision as I find both tanks unique and interesting in both their aspects.

The thing about the 215b is the fast rof, solid 400 dmg, very strong turret, and more hp compared to the 263.

The thing about the 263 is the fast rof, more alpha at 460, fast mobility and very solid frontal armor.

 

 

edit: though from what I’ve seen the 215b Seens to be very unreliable at side scraping as often I am still able to pen them from the side or through the drive wheel.

 215 can’t sidescrape.  

    The sides are overmatched by pretty much alll tier 9/10 Guns

i am stalled at the 122-54 as it hasn't been a fun line. the 101 didn't hit it's stride until top gun and even then it's got all the downsides of the 100M1, the 122-54 can star as a great support tank but you need a team that knows what they are doing, you can't carry. 

i did the British line second so i've had the 215b a while. 

All of the above but it has HESH like HE so you have so much damage potential and a gun that will actually hit where you aim. if you can get slightly hulldown with the front end raised enough so as you can still shoot level it is pretty inpenetrable from the front, and no one can COD you such is the traverse.

Yeah I’ve seemed to noticed that. Since it is a rear mounted turreted tank I would assume that it would be a viable side scraper but clearly that’s not the case.

What in bloody hell? So does a skilled driver somehow drive a T95 to "places" faster?

Tanks I hate driving: Pz. III A, SU-100M1, St. Emil, UE 57, Somua SAu 40, Cruiser II, M41 Walker Bulldog

Tanks I no longer hate: T71, T-62a

I’m pretty sure that was just C6 being kind.
