[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

AnnoGB81_FV4004.png

3440000

The FV4004 Conway is a British tier 9 turreted tank destroyer.

The tank destroyer prototype was created on the basis of the Centurion medium tank. Developed for use in combat against heavy tanks of that period, including the IS-3.

The FV4004 Conway is a tier 9 tank destroyer in turreted British TD line. it is noticeably less agile than its predecessor, still lacks protection like its predecessor. however, it offers two good gun choices which makes up for it.

As of 9.20.1, it had two gun choices; The 120mm gun which shared with the Tortoise's top gun that offers very good DPM, and the new 5.5 inch gun which trades gun arc, and RoF for massive alpha damage.

Use your huge DPM to patrol the first and second lines of battle, and you can rack up massive amounts of damage and kills via support fire. This is a brilliant tank that if played well. and it is extremely fun and rewarding.

The FV4004 Conway leads to the FV4005 Stage II.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:

- Two choices of guns; Accurate, fast aiming, high ROF and great DPM on 120mm gun, very hard hitting 5.5-in gun with option of devastating premium HESH round

- Powerful engine allows for quick acceleration, speed retention, and hill-climbing

- Gun mantlet can pull off some bounces

- Fast reverse speed

- No stock grind, as its "stock" gun is the same gun with Tortoise's top gun,


Cons:

-Tied with Strv 103 for The lowest hitpoint pool of tier 9 TDs, although one should get used to this as the FV4005 has the lowest of tier 10 TDs.

- Poor gun elevation

- Limited top speed and poor hull and turret traverse speeds, turret cannot fully rotate with the 5.5-in gun

- Generally poor armor, and also very large

- Low ammo capacity on both guns

- Terrible camouflage values


Performance

This is a very interesting tank destroyer in the fact that it's basically a big, slow medium tank with a very big gun. This is what it is and so this is how you should play it. because of it's monster dpm it can perform very well in the first or second line of battle. This tank was designed to destroy heavy tanks, yet with 5.5-in gun it could also decimate lighter targets with ease. Be aware of your surroundings as the slow tank and turret traverse are quite unforgiving. This is an absolutely brilliant tank, but only if you play it right.


Early Research

You don't need to research a turret and start with a great gun, making it a easier grind, similar to the Ru 251. If you already researched through the British mediums or heavies then you will already have the top engine and radio.

Historical Info

FV 4004 Self-propelled gun, 120 mm, L1 gun, Mk 3" prototype based on a Centurion 3 hull with a larger calibre 120 mm L1 gun in a turret made from rolled plate. To be an interim design until Conqueror tank entered service. One built before the project was cancelled in 1951.

Historical Accuracy Errata

The following are consensus errors or inconsistencies which have been identified with the configuration of the vehicle in question and conflict with information available on the public record. The causes for these divergences in the game are normally not disclosed and may be rooted in game balance.

The B.L. 5.5 inch gun was only fitted to the FV3805 and a turretless Crusader. Its configuration on the Conway is fake.
  • In reality it had -5° of gun depression instead of -10°
  • Historical HESH round with 152 mm penetration for the L1 120 mm gun is missing.
  • The armor-piercing shell of the L1 120 mm gun is considerably weaker than in reality, with only 259 mm of penetration compared to the historical 361.
