Yes, it does. That's why it isn't as good as it could've been.

Seems like a fun tank, but that gun is an overkill, probably waiting for another nerf in future patches.

As an alternative, they should give it a version of 75mm gun from AMX12 without drum.

it does have scout mm but with 250hp on that small size with the agility its nearly as good as chaffee or vk2801 (of course no way it comes near t-50-2)
but it also got a gun that hurts quiet a bit for a scout tank, you just cant circle enemys that easy.

also gun depression is ZERO ... srsly i got detracked today several times on small bumps and i couldnt reacht the gun down even a bit.

so its at best an very efficent scout/td but it sure is very different from the scout/lights... also different from any other lights or the tds
basicly i am looking forward on live because it seems like a new experience, for better or worse

It has similar matchmaking to a tier 4 light, tier 9 are the highest it can see.

On the test server there are almost no low tier battles anyway, especially with this test being about high tier tanks so don't go by experiences there.

This tank is one sick little bug.Today in a tier 9 game i found a poor solo t95 witch i totally and utterly raped in about 2 mins from full health while the poor sob was qqing on chat about the little french cheater.
It is way faster than a chaffe as has around 8t  or 9t with a 250hp engine....In agility department i would say its similar to a t-50-2 but compared to a 50-2 its smaller so even a better camo than the soviet rocket.

ELC - suicidal close combat glass cannon on crack.

You play it like WW2 fighter plane vs bombers.

Drive direct at enemy side -> shoot almost point blank and disappear -> repeat -> Profit

2 of them working together can kill generally almost anything without too much problems.

ELC vs ELC is a great fun too

The first match on the test server was 8 ELC, 6 D.max and 2 other tanks. The ELC battles are like medieval jousting, crazy funny stuff.

How does the crew of the ELC get determined when the patch is aplied? is it a copy of the 12t crew trained for the ELC? The comment about two 100% trained crews makes me confused...

There's only two crew members in the tank as opposed to the three crew used in the 12t, so you ELC AMX comes with two 100% trained crew

Do they always come 100 trained? or is it based on the commander and driver of the 12t And what happens with secondary skills?

They always come 100% trained and it's independent of the skill level of the existing crew or tank (i.e. even if your AMX 12t crew or tank are not 100% or Elite respectively you still get ELC + 100% crew)

Your 12t crew will be as they are, the ELC crew will be at 100% with no secondaries.

Just bought a 12t with 50% crew to abuse this.

Can you get the AMX 12t without the crew, and get an ELC too?
