The FV433 Abbot VE is a Tier 4 special premium Self-Propelled Gun under Zhang Feng's dealership.

History[]

Class: Self-Propelled Gun
Developed: 1960s
Service: 1965-1995 in the United Kingdom,
Vehicles Built: 226 (incl. 80 VE models)
Operators: United Kingdom, India

The Abbot was developed as a fast, light replacement for the WW2-era Sexton SPG. It consisted of a 105mm howitzer installed in a fully traversable turret on top of a FV430 series hull. The VE (Value Engineered) version of the SPG was a cheaper model built for India without some of the advanced features of the original, such as the NBC protection equipment, flotation screens, powered gun operation or communications.

Features[]
