[Development] FV4005 - Big Box Surprise



We are happy to present a top tier experimental tank destroyer - the FV4005 Stage II with a 183mm gun, which was a modified version of the BL 7.2inch howitzer. The FV4005 was manufactured as a single prototype that underwent test trials and was based on the Centurion hull with a massive turret with a very thin layer of armoured protection and massive rear overhang to provide necessary ammunition storage.





The project started in the early 1950s with an early attempt of up-gunned version that housed 183mm weapon with an automatic loader in a limited-traverse turret, so called FV4005 Stage 1. Both versions were very close in design to the FV4004 Conway that was designed as a stop gap to fight the Soviet IS-3 tanks. The Stage 2 prototype was powered by the Rolls-Royce Meteor engine, with a maximum of 650 horsepower. The tank was able to reach 18 mph (29 km/h) on flat terrain such as road surfaces. In the 1957, the tank destroyer was canceled due to it being deemed an unnecessary and dead-end project.

About This Game

War Thunder is a free-to-play, cross-platform MMO combat game for Windows, Linux, Mac and PlayStation®4 dedicated to military vehicles used in and around World War II and the Korean War. In War Thunder, you can take part in major battles on land, in the air, and at sea, fighting with real players from all over the world in a continuously developing environment.

War Thunder already offers a highly detailed experience in military aviation and ground forces combat, giving players access to a Guinness World Record breaking number of aircraft, as well as an abundance of tanks and other combat vehicles - and the number is constantly rising.

You can feel the unmatched intensity of aerial dogfights in a fighter, the decisive power of commanding a heavy strategic bomber or the heat of battle in a ground attacker, delivering precision strikes against your enemies. Alternatively, you can join the spearhead of armoured vehicles, fighting for dominance over the battlefield on the ground: Man a heavy tank with impressive armour and firepower, use the maneuverability of a medium or light tank to your advantage, or support your team by screening the skies with your anti aircraft vehicle - the choice is yours!

In the future, the game will also allow players to ‘set sail’ by commanding a variety of warships in the fight over the control of the world’s oceans, giving the game a truly epic scale.

Master your vehicles through both upgrades and personal experience in an environment that is constantly expanding and rewarding the personal skill of the player. Organise your efforts in one of the countless player squadrons and become an ace pilot or tanker - or both! Our thriving and welcoming community of millions of players is also actively participating in the game’s ongoing development, offering custom content through War Thunder Live, such as skins, missions and even vehicles.
