Chieftain/T95

The Chieftain/T95 is a British tier 8 premium medium tank.

Development of the FV4201 Chieftain allowed for the interchangeability of guns with the U.S. T95 tank by means of exchanging turrets. The project was discontinued because of numerous problems with training crews to master two artillery systems.

When developing the FV4201 Chieftain, it was proposed to make the armament interchangeable with the American T95 tank by implementing a turret from it on the Chieftain hull. The project did not continue due to the training requirements on the crew that would have to learn to operate two different gunnery systems.

It was the reward for the "Operation Typhoon" campaign. The tank was advertised as a premium, but when players received it, it didn't have premium credit multiplier. Wargaming changed it in 9.15 to produce extra credits like any other premium tank.
