Earn the Valour T95/FV4201 Chieftain. Discover the oldest tank unit in the world!

June 16, 2020

This British Tier X Heavy Tank's camouflage is based on the Royal Tank Regiment’s “Streetfighter II” project and comes with the Richard Cutland Hero crew, who served in the RTR.

“FEAR NAUGHT” The motto of the Royal Tank Regiment, the oldest Tank Unit in the World formed in 1916 during the First World War.

The Valour T95/FV4201 Chieftain is a real collector’s item!

In honor of the British Army’s Royal Tank Regiment, the oldest tank unit in the world (first into battle with tanks in 1916 during the Somme offensive), you can now work towards a brand-new British Tier X Heavy Tank and the Richard Cutland Hero crew!

The exclusive camouflage scheme on the Valour T95/FV4201 is inspired by the “Streetfighter II” project’s camouflage and the Berlin Infantry Brigade urban camo pattern, used by armed forces since the 1980s. The Streetfighter II project aims to improve the urban combat capabilities of the Challenger II MBT, currently in service with the RTR of the British Army.

On top of its unique camouflage and Hero crew, here are three other good reasons to start earning this tank:


BUNKER-LIKE TURRET

The near-impenetrable frontal turret armor makes the Valour T95/FV4201 Chieftain the perfect choice to defend and hold any position.

POWERFUL GUN

The alpha damage, penetration values, and gun depression make this one of the best 120mm guns in the game.

EXCELLENT MOBILITY

Thanks to its great mobility, the Valour T95/FV4201 Chieftain can easily cover wide stretches of terrain and adapt to any situation on the battlefield.

About Richard Cutland, the Valour T95/FV4201 Hero Crew

Richard Cutland is a 30-year veteran of the British Army serving with the Royal Tank Regiment on predominately Main Battle Tanks (From Chieftain to Challenger 2). He has deployed on numerous Operational Tours including the Gulf War and has worked with many of the world’s Armed Forces.

He also spent two years as a Gunnery Instructor teaching new Tank Commanders and overseas students whilst running live firing ranges in the UK and Germany. Being passionate about military history he later taught Armoured Tactics and worked closely with the General Staff’s Briefing Team, headed at that time by General Sir Mike Jackson.

In Richard Cutland’s own words:

“I joined the British Army aged 16 and was quickly introduced to the Chieftain on a cold and rainy winter’s day. My very first tank trade was that of a Chieftain Gunner (the most uncomfortable position on the tank) learning not only the technical requirements and skills required of a Tank Gunner but also, and critically, how to live on this vehicle that becomes your home away from home during Operations.”

“The Chieftain had a somewhat “varied” reputation, to say the least. It has been said that the Chieftain was the best tank in the world at the time as long as it broke down in a good fire position, and there was a strong element of truth in that statement. Its 120mm rifled gun was powerful and accurate, its armor protection was good but its automotive system left a lot to be desired. I certainly spent as much time, when I was a driver, with my head in the back decks covered in oil carrying out repairs as actually driving.”

“The Chieftain Main Battle Tank will always hold a place dear to my heart, the sluggish, powerfully punching Cold War Beast that was my introduction to the world of “Tanking”.”
