Features[edit | edit source]

  • Heavy armor : this vehicle's armor bounces more shots and takes more hits
  • High caliber : the high caliber weaponry deals an increased damage
  • HESH: can even penetrate armor with large hit angles

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

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[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

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

Cons[edit | edit source]

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

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

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[edit | edit source]

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

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • 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

History[edit | edit source]

The culmination of several upgrades to the Chieftain platform, the Mark 10 was designed as a more heavily armored variant with improved communications, mobility, and accuracy over the first production models of the vehicle. Entering service in the 1970’s, it was one of the many Chieftain variants to serve with the British Army until being retired in 1995. Over its lifespan, the Chieftain was heavily upgraded, and variants continue to serve today. It has served in over half a dozen armies across two continents.
