AMX-13

History

The AMX-13 is a French light tank produced from 1953 to 1985. It served with the French Army, as the Char 13t-75 Modele 51, and was exported to over twenty-five other nations. Named after its initial weight of 13 tonnes, and featuring a tough and reliable chassis, it was fitted with an oscillating turret built by GIAT Industries (now Nexter) with revolver type magazines which was also used on the Austrian SK-105 Kürassier. Including prototypes and export versions there are over a hundred variants including self-propelled gun, anti-aircraft systems, APCs, and ATGM versions. Total production of the AMX-13 family is approximately 7,700 units, around 3,400 of which were exported.

Combat Roles In-game

The AMX-13 is currently one of the fastest tanks in the game. With full speed upgrades, it goes over 60 km/h. This speed allows it to easily outmaneuver and avoid being shot by slower, less agile tanks. One tactic features circling a slower tank faster than its turret can rotate while firing shells into the enemy, free of being shot oneself. This is called the "Circle of Death" tactic. Like the M50 Ontos, it has a six shot magazine and fairly low accuracy (not nearly as bad as the accuracy of the Ontos though), so don't expect to be able to snipe very well with it (but it is still possible, unlike the Ontos where it is very difficult). The AMX-13 is better suited for and dominates close quarters matches and Capture the Flag games.

The variant modifications for the AMX-13

It is best to use HEAT ammo when top tier or not yet maxed, as this ammo type can deal the most damage. It is also recommended to upgrade the engine, as it will increase the AMX-13's speed and ability to avoid more shots. Upgrading the gun is recommended next, as it will improve the penetration of the gun. Crew Safety is recommended after that, as the AMX-13 has a low health pool since it is a light tank.

Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • Great speed, agility, and mobility, ideal for flanking and ambushing
  • Fast reload thanks to the magazine, powerful burst damage
  • Magazine reload time is not bad for its level
  • Low profile, somewhat hard to hit at long range
  • Turret rotation is fairly fast (though not too impressive for a light tank)

Cons:

  • Low health pool and weak armor, as it is a light tank
  • Gun depression and elevation are lacking
  • Not very effective while bottom-tier, as penetration becomes less potent
  • Not very good against terrain, especially for a light tank
  • Modules get damaged easily since the tank is small
