Senlac Hill is the ground defended by the English soldiers at the battle of Hastings. 1066 and all that.

 

This leads me to believe that it is entirely a made up WG tank.  I can find absolutely no information on this tank ever being though of, and it's FV # is a joke. It follows no known FV series.  wthWG???

The vehicle is real. Not every tank can be found on the internet, there are things you can only find through archival research.

 

Best wishes.

Tankers, 

 

Today marks the start of the Supertest for a new Premium British Tier VIII light tank: the FV1066 Senlac.

 

 

What’s so special about it? Well, It's got some interesting characteristics.

 

1. The turret of this vehicle is at the rear, yet it’s a well-rounded light tank with a top forward speed of 65 km/h and a top reverse speed of 23 km/h.

2. The Senlac’s gun has good armor penetration (189 mm with a basic round), small aiming time (1.8 seconds), and decent stabilization. Still this tank cannot excel as a sniper because of low accuracy (the dispersion is 0.42 m at 100 meters’ distance).

3. The Senlac’s HE shells deal 280 points of damage. They have 90 mm of armor penetration, making the Brit a real scourge of enemy vehicles with thin armor. The HE shells fired by the Senlac travel at the same speed as basic rounds (1020 meters per second) which means they are way faster than HE shells of other tanks.

Gameplay-wise, the Senlac is much like the HWK 30. At the beginning of a battle, you can act as an effective active spotter (provided that even faster vehicles aren’t present in your team). By the battle’s end (with enemy light tanks already back in their Garages) you can get more aggressive.

 

With the powerful HE Shells and solid mobility, it looks like the Senlac is shaping up to be an excellent counter to Wheeled Vehicles. It also has a 3-seat Crew Configuration.

 

Please note that the vehicle’s stats aren’t yet final and may change depending on the test results.

 

Ok... ive just seen that this tank has the OQF 20pdr gun. If youre gonna give it the 20pdr, give it the proper alpha damage on its AP and APCR... or makeup a new gun... Im ok with the penetration, but if its keeping the 20pdr then the AP and APCR need 230 alpha, like every other 20pdr in the game.

Looks very interesting. But I am still more interested in the M4A1 FL 10 you guys mentioned a while back. How's that one coming along?

This is a hard pass for me unless they offer it for a gold price. No more money from me since they added wheelies to the game. Thanks for ruining competitive play once again.

 

Paying for this game in the first place... :;) Grow up and learn to counter the wheeled vehicles. There has been enough whining about them. If you want something to whine about, I'm sure you can go complain about SPGs and CW reward tanks who's players have an addiction to the No.2 key.

The average 85mm gun deals 180 damage, but there are some special ones that deal 160 damage. I think, its about time a 85mm gun deals 200 damage, starting with this tank, cause it needs it. 

I think it would be more fitting for the alpha damage on this tank to be 200, and the HESH to be 300 damage.

also, the accuracy on these guns are usually amazing, like, .31 base! why is this gun so awful?

not to mention, at 1800 base DPM, this gun would be the worst non autoloader when it comes to DPM!

make the HESH fly faster than the AP for the memes. lets say 1165 or so.

Ok. Show me a picture or a list with the FV # where this fits in. I have full access to a load of Brits and their research.

Is this confirmation of British LT line? Hope to see those FV301 scorpion tanks running around and Scorpion 90 trolling ELCs.
