General information[edit | edit source]
The FV4034 is a British main battle tank in service with the armies of the United Kingdom and Oman. The FV4034 is an extensive redesign of an earlier variant. Although the hull and automotive components seem similar, they are of a newer design and build than those of the earlier variant and only around 3% of components are interchangeable. A visual recognition feature is the armored housing for the TOGS thermal gunsight; the FV4034 has this above the gun barrel, the earlier variant has it at the right-hand side of the turret. The tank's drive system provides a 550 km range, with a maximum road speed of 59 km/h.
The FV4034 is equipped with a 120-millimeter (4.7 in) 55-caliber long L30A1 tank gun, the successor to the L11 gun used on the Chieftain and its earlier variant. Unique among NATO main battle tank armament, the L30A1 is rifled, because the British Army continues to place a premium on the use of High-explosive squash head (HESH) rounds in addition to armor-piercing fin-stabilized discarding-sabot rounds. The FV4034 is also armed with an L94A1 EX-34 7.62 mm chain gun and a 7.62 mm L37A2 (GPMG) machine gun. Fifty main armament rounds and 4,200 rounds of 7.62 mm ammunition are carried. The FV4034 has a four-man crew. The turret and hull are protected with second generation Chobham armor (also known as Dorchester).
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
The FV4034 is the main battle tank available to the British Army. It can hold a crew of four; a driver, gunner, commander, and a loader. The main cannon is a 120mm rifled gun that is capable of firing AP Sabot rounds, High-explosive rounds, or smoke rounds.
- The driver has access to smoke via a smoke generator for defensive purposes.
- The gunner's 120mm cannon can fire L27A1 120mm CHARM Armor-Piercing Sabot Rounds, L31A7 120mm High Explosive SQUASH head Rounds, or L34 120mm Smoke rounds. In addition, the gunner also has access to a 7.62mm Coaxial machine gun for engaging infantry and 40mm smoke grenades for self-defense. The gun features three zoom levels.
- The commander has access to a periscope that features hunter-killer functionality, granting the commander the ability to focus the gunner's cannon on a target. The commander's periscope features three zoom levels.
- The loader's seat features a remote-controlled L37A2 RWS general purpose machine gun (GPMG), a highly effective anti-personal weapon. This weapon features two zoom levels (x1 x12).
