This is the results of my first game with it, with 4 kills and 81% base cap.

Amazing speed, decent turret armour (bounced a Stug)

Kills: M3 Lee, A-20, Stug, and something else...(can't remember what it was).

Also, that 10% on the skill perks came from this match :P

You can really say its good based on those kills in an elite tier 5. Keep going we will speak again in a 100 games.

I just got 1st class - I think it's a bit like a mobile td, painful aiming time though.

Everyone having experience with fast TDs (ambush style if in high tier match, chasing after enemies if positioned high) will excel with this tank.


First match (I played it as fast TD since I was positioned fairly high):

Victory!
Battle: Siegfried Line 1. august 2012 12:04:12
Vehicle: ELC AMX
Experience received: 2 196 (x2 for the first victory each day)
Credits received: 26 787
Battle Achievements: Top Gun, Sniper, Master Gunner, Mastery Badge: "Ace Tanker"


Spoiler


The gun is powerful for its tier (170 average pen and 240 average dmg) but aiming time, rof and accuracy are bad. Armor is also weak on the paper although the it has really sloped front so I have no idea of its effective armor values.

Got 3 kills in the first match (tier VI max match). This thing is fast! And small! I killed enemy Pz IV by rushing him and he missed, because he shot over me!

Other ELC in my team also got 3 kills.

It's like Stug, but twice as fast and with more powerful gun.

Nerf coming soon :P

I dislike ELC, its nerf compared to AMX 12t. Why?
- No turret. AMX 12t was great tank to close combat, driving circles around slow enemy. Well, ELC cant. Aslo when scouting, ELC is fast and agile enough, but again turretless construction cant fight with enemy artillery. You can ram one, but you will die from defenders.
- Long reload. 12 seconds for one shot. Not nice.

Still i believe there will be many hardcore ELC fans :)

I´m in love!
A very fast TD. (65 km/h)
A slow reload (5 shots / min.)
But a wonder - gun: 170mm pen. & 240 dmg.
Must drive another round!

I love this tank. It's so awesome bush scout and flanker. Hope they won't nerf it though the probably will as it's so awesome.

I was quite unhappy with MM treating it like a scout (with that radio, td-turret, view range?), but then I've penetrated TierIX side twice and was felling totally like in Scarface finale (died too ^^)

The ELC is so tiny, it can hide right under big enemy tanks! Hug them and they can't shoot you. Then you can punch holes into them with the insane gun. :Smile_trollface-3:  Reload time is terrible though.

Super OP piece of shit. This cannon on such a small and fast tank is the biggest joke from Wargaming so far.

+1.

It is like a small tiny egg running with BIG hammer. It will be nerfed next patch :)

Well, same procedure as with every french tank that was fun so far. I'll just have my fun with it as long as it lasts, in 2-3 patches it will most likely be gimped to hell, and it will only be played for the grind or by some hardcore dudes. But whatever. I'm already used to it.

OP POS cries inc, put your helmets on. :Smile_harp:

EDIT: Anyone already got an idea about camo values for this thing?

I think you'll love it or hate it.

Personally I hate it- even with a gun rammer the RoF is still dreadful, and the aiming time... well... don't get me started. I love fast TD's, which is what this is- I play(ed) the M18, ISU, T25 AT all successfully in an ambush style but I just can't seem to get it with this tank. I do like the mobility and size of the little thing though- that bit is good.

Still don't think it's a keeper- but hey, it's something different!

EPIC tank. Lack of Turret, just makes ELC AMX vs ELC AMX duels just way to epic. Drive, hit, run, GTFO repeat tank
