The FV215b 183, the death star... This tank it's a monster at tier X. It is perhaps the most infamous and scariest tank in the game. It has the biggest caliber gun of any tank, giving it a destructive alpha damage. This tank is really controversial, some people hate it's alpha, other think it's ok. Is it truly OP? Does his alpha damage makes him good?

Firepower:
A 183 mm gun.... pure destruction... The alpha is 910 dmg, enough to take half-hp of many tier X medium tanks and TD's. But that isn't the scariest things about its gun. In fact, like almost all high tier british tanks, the 183 has HESH premium shells: 230 mm of pen and 1300 average dmg. It can literally one-shot tier 9 tanks if he rolls high. However, for balancing reasons, this gun has the lowest disperssion accuracy and aim time; also it has a really small number of shells (20 if i'm not mistaken) so the player must choose wisely when to fire. The dpm isn't the best, but for the alpha, it is actually pretty good.

Armor:
This is where the problems begin: 127/51/76 of flat hull armor and 127/102/76 of flat turret armor. The tank has no armor at all, only the grille has worst armor. you will bounce only by a really bad aimed shot or by a miracle.

Movility:
It has one of the worst engines at tier X. which mades him a slow and big tank, also it's terrain resistances are among the worst of the tier X TD's. Making him one of the slowlest tanks. With no armor and no movility and no cammo value, it kinda sucks....

Playstyle:
With awful armor and engine, but a good gun, The tank has only 3 possible playstyles, as a sniper tank destroyer, a trading shot fighter or an ambush tank. You can start the match in the 2nd or 3rd line and help your team by dropping your bombs at a distance (HESH is recommended). If the ennemy tanks are pushing, then switch to ambush, hide behind a building so that when they show up you destroy them. NEVER HIDE IN BUSH, since your cammo value is awful. You can also go in the 2nd line behind a building, when you see an ennemy you show up, fire then hide again. You will probably be spotted, and a shell will hit you, but it would be a trade shot that the 183 will always win, that's the trading shot fighter style.

Difficulty: Intermediate
Gun: 4/5
Armor: 1/5
Movility: 0.5/5 (it isnt the most slowlest, but his bad movility affects him the most)
Pros: 183 mm Gun.... (Flashbacks of Vietnam :´v)
Weakness: No armor No movility.

Conclusion:
With really bad armor and movility, the tank is away from being the best TD (as MY OWN PERSONAL opinion, this tank is the worst TD). However with that gun, it's clearly a tank that you must always respect and be afraid of. The tank sacrifices a lot of good points. And by seeing all the hate it has, it would seems that it was worth it.
What do you think? Agree or disagree? I will read your feedback

This tank doesn’t need a guide

 

Even if it did, the one tip should be “Drive. Camp. Shoot. Damage.”


#4 in the LeKpz 41 (with TwisterCup camo), #6 in the M41 Walker-Bulldog, and #8 in the T37

This is what BlitzStars is reporting, so I might be reading something incorrectly...

You would not be taking out the true potential of 183

That's the point: we don't want people using it to its full potential because its stupidly broken.  40%ers easily rack in 4k damage games with it.

Bad camo? It's turreted (hull traverse breaks camo), can mount a camouflage net, and has better camo than half of the tier 10s in the game. You're just straight up wrong with the camo value comments, by the way, 20% base plus 14% camo net plus 4% from paint then an additional 21% of that total from crew skills is nothing to cough at. (46% total)

 

Bad DPM? Nearly 4k with calibrated HESH shells that deal 1300 damage a piece, have the base penetration of most medium tanks, and can pen every tier 10 tank in the game frontally (and yes, I have personally tested this) except for the Maus is bad?

 

Bad mobility? While forwards acceleration is slow, the tank has higher base hull traverse than any other tier 10 TD, and additionally it has a partial turret to help swing the gun.

No. The first step is irrelevant. Such an outdated guide.

 

Anyway, how do you say this thing is one of the worst tds in the game?

not bad not good, super meh. If it had more gun depression its flaws would be more bearable, but the only viable option I've found is to trade shots. I hate that. Not really that easy to use since all the enemies target you and you have no armor at all.
