  • HESH: can even penetrate armor with large hit angles

Player Recommendations[]

An improvement in almost every way over the Chieftain Mk. 2, this tank's mobility is a large leap ahead. While its turret armor does improve it cannot be relied on to push attacks on the enemy.  Instead, it is better suited as a hull down ridge poker capable of using its gun depression to take shots that other vehicles couldn’t, while keeping its weaker hull covered. Its ability fire HESH Ammunition remains a core piece of gameplay that can deal significant frontal damage to other hull down vehicles attempting a sniper battle.

Pros and Cons[]


  • HESH rounds allow for consistent damage into the front of heavily armored targets
  • Excellent gun depression
  • Relatively large health pool


  • Poor hull armor
  • Worst acceleration of any tier 5 vehicle
  • Generally poor mobility
  • Very large and tall target

Upgrade Suggestions[]

Upgrading to the L60 Mk. 7A Diesel Engine will improve the otherwise sluggish speed of the Chieftain Mk. 10. While the Stillbrew Appliqué is an armor buff, its effect is not dramatic enough to warrant researching it before the engine. The Improved Laser Rangefinder and Improved Ready Racks will increase firepower, allowing the tank to keep enemies at bay by punishing vehicles attempting to make a push.

Retrofit Suggestions[]

  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Air Induction Precleaner
  • Improved Filter Systems
  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[]

  • Commander: Ioannis Sanna, for increasing accuracy, turret traverse, and aim time, as well as the Firestarter ability mixing well with the HESH rounds.
  • Driver: Off-Road Driving, Spin to Win
  • Gunner: Quick Draw, Sharpshooter
  • Loader: Rapid Fire, Explosive Shells

Developed by Great Britain as a successor to the Centurion, this main battle tank was created as a response to the ever-increasing penetration capability of Soviet armor-piercing rounds. With the production starting in the 1960s and ending in 1978, several hundred units were built for the British and export markets. The Chieftain remained in service until 1995 and saw combat primarily in the Middle East, albeit not in British hands. Iran made extensive use of this MBT, even though the results were debatable due to the poor training of Iranian troops. However, during its heyday, the vehicle was considered to be the world's most powerful tank until it was dethroned by the Leopard 2 during the 1980s.

The Chieftain Mk.10 was one of the last production variants, featuring additional “Stillbrew” armor to keep it relevant on the modern battlefield. It’s a tough, rugged, vehicle capable of withstanding a lot of punishment, especially when it comes to its turret.
