FV217 Badger: Armored and Fearless!

Welcome back, friends!

Today, we are tracking an amazing animal tank, right in its natural habitat. A native of the British Isles, you might know the Badger by its Latin name: FV217 Badger. This beast has a thick skin, sharp teeth, powerful claws and is very hot-tempered. Should it find its prey, the usually calm and docile creature turns into a ferocious and destructive predator!

Good news: you can tame this predator and it will gladly follow your commands! New containers have just arrived, and you might just find the FV217 Badger lurking in one of them. Open them up and get this Collector Tier X TD with the “Royal Reception” attachment. The “Esquire” legendary camouflage will give it the natural look it bears in the wild!

The Badger’s Lifestyle and Habits

Place of Origin: British Isles

The vehicle was based on a British heavy tank, the Conqueror. And although, according to official reports, the project was curtailed at an early stage, the Badger actually got loose and can be found in several locations: the burning desert sands, the arctic and it even found its way into concrete bunkers. According to the observations of leading tankologists, the Badger has impressive characteristics:

Bone Structure and Appearance

The Badger’s hull is stocky, squat and features sloping armor in the front. Like most TDs, the FV217 has no turret and relies on a decent supply of hit points and its thick exterior in combat. Even heavy tanks will wish they could handle enemy attacks like the Badger!

The especially strong armor is located in the front of the hull: here enemy shells will have to deal with up to 280 mm of steel! The main protected sectors are 215 mm thick, but taking the steep slope into account, it’s more like 350 mm! To deal any damage to this Badger head on, enemies will need to hit the lower plate. But this doesn’t necessarily guarantee penetration: thanks to the sloping, its effective thickness reaches 250 mm.

Under normal conditions, the Badger wears the standard British colors, but prefers to fight in the legendary Esquire camouflage, bearing the “Royal Reception” attachment. The camo gives the vehicle a gray-white color that badgers are known for and its title will change to “Badger, Esq.” in battle. The attachment adds a menacing mine trawl and machine gun shield that lets you know it’s “teatime”!

You’ll have better luck trying to break through the Badger’s sides, but don’t celebrate too early! The thinnest spots are covered with screens, and the conning tower’s sides have a reliable thickness of 152 mm: just enough to allow for side-scraping. Obviously, its back end is a weak point. But just like any smart animal, the Badger will make sure no threats can see it!

Mobility and Habitat

Usually the FV217 Badger is in no hurry. Its average speed is only about 24 km/h, which is not surprising given its level of protection. Getting up to 20 km/h takes only three seconds, and about 10 to hit the top speed of 30 km/h. Therefore, at the start of battle, the Badger normally sticks around the starting positions and gradually moves inland or waits for the enemy to approach.

Despite the impressive armor, the Badger tries to keep the enemy at a distance. More importantly, this animal must find positions where enemies cannot ring circles around it. Due to the large mass and structural features of the engine, this mammal turns in place very slowly, so maneuverable tanks pose a real danger.

Hunting and Nutrition

The Badger is a true omnivore. If something moves, it will eat it – or at least try. In this respect, this Badger’s more like a fox: it will hunt and kill any prey, even if it’s full. Such manners haven’t just appeared out of the blue, it’s in its nature: its weapon is perfect for the methodical destruction of anything that falls in its sight.

Among Tier X TDs, the Badger has one of the fastest-firing guns. It’s capable of inflicting 3,000 damage in a minute and piercing 280 mm of armor with its standard shell and 370 mm with its APCR. Though its alpha strike isn’t as large as that of other Tier X TDs, the Badger’s strong frontal armor allows it to use its rate of fire at 100% and not spend time sticking its head out from a shelter to attack, in turn reducing the aiming accuracy. Don’t think of this animal as a simple badger, it’s more like the honey badger: vicious and a danger to anyone and everyone!

Climbing up hills is not this badger’s forte; it takes a long time. But its weapon has a gun depression of 10 degrees, and the FV217 can comfortably shoot enemies, hide its lower armor plate AND further increase the slope of the frontal armor. Therefore, mountain walks definitely will be good for this creature’s health… and bad for the health of its enemies!

The Badger is a heavily armored TD with a large HP pool, a powerful weapon and a striking appearance. Become one of the first owners of this new Collector Tier X and tear enemy tanks to pieces with a primal, bestial rage!
