Archer SP 17 pdr Tank Destroyer

The Self Propelled 17pdr, Valentine, Mk I, Archer was a World War II British tank destroyer. Designed and manufactured by Vickers-Armstrongs, it used the Valentine Mk I tank chassis and fitted with an QF 17 pounder. 655 Archers were produced between March 1943 and May 1945. It was used in North-West Europe and Italy during the war; post-war, it served with the Egyptian Army. The vehicle was unique in that its gun faced the rear of the chassis instead of the front.[1]

Battlefield VEdit

"The Archer was unique in that its gun faced backwards. The British based in [sic] on the Valentine tank, and its powerful 3 inch gun was very effective."

— In-game description

The Valentine Archer is a tank destroyer set to be introduced in Battlefield V in the second Tides of War chapter, Lightning Strikes. It is unlocked for the Allied forces upon completion of the week six challenges.

The second seat, Back Gunner, is armed with a Machine Gun in the rear of the tank and is not exposed like the second seat of the Valentine Mk VIII; meaning the user cannot be shot out of the seat. The seat serves as a passenger seat and protection from enemy players attempting to flank from the rear. A small hatch will open when a player is occupied in the seat which can alert enemy players that they will be getting return fire.
