For the Record: FV4004 “Conway” and FV4005 Stage 2 in Numbers
Hello everyone, there seem to be a lot of weird myths going around the FV4004 “Conway” and the FV4005 Stage 2 (calling them “tier 10 KV-2″ for example), so let’s have a look at the data we know about them. These data are based on original archive reports. One was dug up by David “Listy” Lister, the other by Ogopogo (US server). All the credits go to them. Unfortunately, I cannot publish the original reports, that’s up to the guys.
