This might be the most useless vehicle I've ever played. I don't even bother trying to dodge CB half the time, as any instance where I don't die to return fire is a loss for both parties involved. Also I keep ramming people because the controls are reversed. Do you want splash radius, damage, or accuracy? Because this has none of those.

 

But I must soldier on, for CGCs are useful.

Im surprised there's no fuck arty post already. As for that grind, using the FV304s gun is probably the better idea. Do doubles and fuck it afterwards. 26k left.

So theres no hope with the top gun? 6 inch any better?

Now there is

Fuck arty and anyone who plays it with a white-hot cheese grater covered in ghost pepper

If you absolutely need it for CW, please just free xp it and NEVER play it in a pub match if you can help it.

a bit, if you can stand every other nation's 155mm 1250 dmg guns.  at least this one gets a usable AP round, which can be fun when RNG smiles on you.  it has really low arc

AP? This might be worth trying on the next test, may even give me enough motivation to suffer through playing arty.

yep, 258mm pen, 750 dmg.  one game, I was able to do 3500 dmg in the first few minutes before my team was rolled, other games you can't hit a stationary maus

Well, if it's anything like the 261, I might actually find it fun. How's the armor and mobility?

Nothing to note. I've not bounced anything in my FV207 and the mobility is just the same as the American tier 8 cancer. So mediocre for both things.

Oh well. I guess the CGC is the only arty with some actual armor.

The Crusader SP is pretty terrible. The BL 5.5 does plinky damage and isn't really that accurate either. Some people suggest using the FV304's gun, but I felt that the FV304 was a way better platform.

 

On the bright side, the gun layout allows you to do weird things like joust opponents. Rush towards them, turn a bit and pass them and launch an artillery shell into their weak rear armor. Which is admittedly quite funny.

It started getting decent with prem ammo. I know prem ammo firing in arty is the worst kind of cancer (testies cancer?) but i found it the only way to play somethin that's so inaccurate.

I've decided the SP stands for "suffering profusely", and I ended up using about a 50/50 mix of standard and free XP to escape it (and then the same to escape the 5.5" gun that carries over to the next vehicle). The 207 is clearly not stellar, with a 152.4mm when everyone else gets 155mm, 203.2mm, or 21cm, but it's at least okay. Also I don't need to constantly flip driving commands in my head.

I was hoping TD42 might be able to weigh in with some helpful tips on this POS.

 

Then I realized that his answer would most likely be:

About the only thing I can imagine myself playing the Crusader SP for (other than getting a CGC) is for the hilarity value of running backwards from a scout while being able to shoot back at them.

Yep, had to free XP past this after playing it for a bit. Worst arty I think I ever played.

 

The 207 is a bit better, especially with the top gun. (Except when you do 10 damage to a Lowe with a direct hit)

 

Will just slowly keep grinding through the double to get past it.

I've personally found the accuracy servicable and the gun arc, both vertical and horizontal, decent. That said, it's not something I enjoy, merely a roadblock as I move on to better things.

Running away late battle is actually when and where you make most of your damage from. I don't know the expected damage for it but unless it's very low it's a perfect vehicle for high wn8 and low wr stats

I've played it for over 100battles to get the FV207(which I haven't bought yet), and seriously, this arty gotta be the worst of its tier, such a bad arty.

It's a shit vehicle for high damage, seeing as it is a clicker and clicking is completely fucking random. No splash damage means no damage on a near miss, which happens with some frequency even on completely stationary targets.

Use prem, damage increases by a lot thanks to that. Though it's still horrible. T8 is much better even if not that good. Though my first few battles were lost due to very strange teams I did decent damage in those.

This tank isn't as bad as people make it to be honestly. The gun either gun can be trollish true, but this is the wide up for the CGC so get use to the troll shots flying off. I am a far cry from a great player but, if you are grinding arty(s) it will hurt your stats even more. I have had good, bad, and ugly games in the tank, but wait I have had a few great games in the tank as well. My advise to anyone doing this grind is don't burn yourself out on it. Set limits, try to have fun, relish that 1 click you might get in every 20 games. I have gotten the Ace tanker for this tank, and the FV3805 as well. Below is the replay I saved.

I run that thing with the FV304's gun...being able to troll people makes up for some of the pain of playing it. With that gun in a tier higher than the FV304 one doesn't deal much damage of course, but crits still happen and one can deal that acceptable level of damage rather reliably, whereas the top gun seems to be very situational.
