Imagine a light tank which can only turn the turret 10 degrees. Nope, you don't have to imagine - here comes the ELC!

The tank is nice itself but the turret on the other hand fucks everything up.

Ahhhh contradictory info! Brain hurt... I'll wait and see when 7.5 goes live, I've too much XP to grind for the JP2 to go spinning around the test server

cimajes is right, but the turret can only turn about 10 degrees, the speed is awesome and turn speed is almost like on the T-50-2.

And the gun is the same as the top gun of the, now T8, AMX 13/90, just with lower RoF and no drum autoloader.

Anyone who's NOT buying a 12t just to get a free ELC to play with? :Smile_Default:

Already got it, can't wait to get it for free. Interestingly the 12t isn't for sale, but both 75 and 90 are, they should make quite a profit.

size comparison between M4, M18 and ELC

add excellent mobility and a decent gun .. and you got one of the most fun TDs in the game :P

It really makes the AMX 12/13 look like a high tank :Smile_veryhappy:

I rebought the 12t just to sell it at a profit when the patch hit. But now I´m getting extras :Smile_Default:

OT: From the stats I´ve seen while skimming through test server threads, it´s basically a superfast TD with awesome pen and pretty high alpha, but poor DPM.

Looks like it would have pretty epic camo, seems smaller than the StuG :Smile_amazed:

How about the gun depression/elevation? This is not a LT, it's a turboTD with a camo bonus on the move, it's like the StuG, SU-85 and T49 had a threesome. ZOMG! GIMMEGIMMEGIMME NAO!!

if you're lucky gun depression is -6° .. more likely tho' -4° or so (just like the AMX 12t) - have to wait for someone to dig through the datafiles/update in the wiki for correct numbers. considering its small size and excellent mobility gun depression isn't *that* important.

gun traverse feels like 10-20° either side.

accuracy on the move is good enough for close quarters, but with the high speed and small traverse this becomes really tricky.

The depression felt really poor, but i had the feeling you could raise the gun far higher than the AMX 12/13 can.
