We review the FV721 Fox, a tier 5 AFV in Armored Warfare (AW), with gameplay of a Cold Strike match.
Stat line: 3.3k damage, 5 kills
As discussed in the video, this match was in the first month of Open Beta, and I was too tentative in the early minutes of the battle. Part of the challenge of playing an AFV well is reading when an enemy flank is thin and breaking it wide open.
Strengths and Weaknesses
+ superb acceleration, forwards and backwards
+ superb top-end speed
+ superb burst damage from 2-salvo ATGM
+ can weapon swap between autocannon and ATGM for sustained damage
+ small profile
+ 2nd best vision for tier 5 AFV, behind only the BMP-2
– over-sensitive driving controls; easily spins out
– poor max cannon depression (-5)
– paper armor
Commander, Crew, and Retrofits
A. Sabrina: for vision control
B. Crew: Smooth Ride/Off-Road Driving, Shoot from the Hip. 2nd Gunner/Loader skill is up to you
C. Retrofits: Enhanced Sight Interface (Universal slot), Upgraded Transmission (Mobility slot), Augmented Optics (Tech slot). For the Firepower slot, you can use Experimental Propellant for raw damage or Chrome Barrel Lining for more accuracy for semi-automatic autocannon fire
Similar to my “Road to Unicum” video for World of Tanks (WoT), the objective of these AW videos is to meaningfully help players improve their gameplay.

Haven’t had a chance to look over your feed at the second, but have you
reviewed any of the tanks that can fire missiles out the main barrel of the
vehicle, like the Starship and Sheridan? While most people disdain using
the missiles (they normally don’t do that much more damage or pen, and load
slower and fly slower), but they do have one advantage. They effectively
add more gun depression to the vehicle. I have had a couple of games in my
Starship where I just barely was peeking over a hill, and firing missiles
at targets that I could not have gotten my gun pointed at from that
position. Just a thought.
Why am I not surprised you found your way to Armored Warfare. LOL
I finally decided to try it the other day and I have to say, it is amazing.
They took all of the good from WoT and fixed the problems plus added their
Pretty sure I won’t be going back to WoT anytime soon with this game out.
Oh goody I’ve been waiting for this one before I got my fox
the fox had a bug that the moke would launch out to the right instead of in
front of you
Have you given up on World of Tanks? I really appreciated your analytical
approach to the tactical situations you encountered.
