History

The FV214 Conqueror was a British heavy tank of the post-war era. It was developed as a response to the Soviet Joseph Stalin IS-3 heavy tanks and carried a larger 120 mm gun compared to the 20 pounder (83.4 mm) gun carried by its peer the Centurion. Its role was to provide long range anti-tank support for the Centurion main battle tanks. They were issued at nine for each regiment in Germany, and usually grouped in three tank troops.

Role In-Game

Firing only APDS, AP, and HE ammo, the FV214 Conqueror is at somewhat of a disadvantage compared with HEAT-firing tanks at a similar level. However, the Conqueror's armor and firepower help to make up for that shortcoming. The Conqueror is somewhat similar to the T-10. Both of these tanks are slow, lacking in agility (though the Conqueror's agility isn't too bad for a heavy tank), heavily armored, and with a high amount of health points. The rate of fire is just a slight bit faster than the normal reload used by a large majority of other tanks. This helps to compensate for the lack of HEAT-compatibility.

The Conqueror is definitely not a flag-running tank. With the FV214's low top speed, don't expect to do much running at all, in fact. The Conqueror is best at what the real-life version was designed to do: operate in conjunction with other heavy tanks, or supporting lighter units as they attack the enemy battle line. It is recommended to constantly use cover and go into hull-down position, don't expose the flanks or rear, and keep that powerful gun in action. The Conqueror isn't an easy tank to use, but it is a powerful one in the right hands.

Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • Reload time is just a bit faster than the average, DPM is pretty good
  • Great health pool
  • Turret is very well armored and angled from the front, small as well
  • Accuracy is very respectable, penetration values are as well
  • Agility is actually fairly good for a heavy tank

Cons:

  • Horrible speed, gets flanked very easily
  • Turret rotation speed can be considered somewhat slow
  • Hull armor is huge and weak, frontal lower glacis is also thin
  • Gets ammo racked frequently
  • Big tracks can easily be damaged
