The FV433 Abbot is a tier 4 Premium Self-Propelled Gun originating from the United Kingdom. Originally a tier 3, it was up-tiered and split into two separate vehicles in Update 0.15[1] so as to be able to find PVP games with other tier 4 SPGs easier. Players who owned the original Abbot kept the new tier 3 variant, the FV433 Abbot VE as compensation. It can be purchased from Zhang Feng for 1,000 Gold.

Currently, all SPGs in the game are locked to PVE mode.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • Self propelled guns: fire support vehicles for PvE missions.
  • Magazine loader: allows you to fire several rounds without reloading.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

As a self propelled gun, the Abbot is best used as a support vehicle for helping your team progress by removing heavily armored targets such as MBTs from the battle. Teamwork is needed for those both working with and playing an SPG. Ask for vehicles on your team to call targets if they are in trouble, and work to keep your frontline vehicles in the battle.

History[edit | edit source]

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.
