The FV215b (183) is a British tier 10 tank destroyer.

This proposed heavy self-propelled gun utilized components of the Mk.II Conqueror. The vehicle featured the gun in a rear-mounted oscillating turret. The project was canceled shortly after a dummy vehicle was built.

Assault tank based on the Conqueror chassis with a 183mm gun mounted on it. The project was cancelled in the 1950s and it never saw military service.

The last British tank destroyer that was added with the 0.8.4 update, this TD has been notoriously known for its apocalyptic gun. Especially when loaded with premium shells, this tank is a death sentence to any tank and you must avoid frontal combat with this tank at all costs unless it's reloading.

As a downside, the FV215b (183) can only turn its turret 45 degrees either direction. The gun has a horrific load time and low ammo capacity, comparable to SPGs, and is not very accurate. So as long as you can outmaneuver its gun range you will be able to destroy it.

The FV215b (183) marks the end of the British tank destroyer line.

Historical Info

The FV215b (183) was a project variant of the FV 214, or its more known name, the Conqueror. The 183mm L4 tank gun developed by ARDE in the mid 50’s is the largest tank gun ever made and was first tested on the FV 4005 Conway. Huge gun firing only HE or HESH rounds was built to counter anything the Soviets could build after the IS3. After tests failed the gun would attempted to be mounted on the conqueror as the FV215b. Information about this project are very limited around, as the project was scrapped after a full size mock up was built and examined.
