Walked in expecting M3 Lee style gameplay, walked out with 4 kills driving like my AMX 12t.

Damn fine tank.

Yeah, I got a battle not quite long ago with tons of ELC AMXs. It's a badass tank! Fast, have deadly gun. I managed to shoot one only when my teammates detracked one of them with my Vk3001(P), 'cause my turret isn't able to turn so fast when they're moving. I don't know weaknesses of that tank except paper armour, and probably horrible elevation and depression of the gun, but I still want one ^^.

I'll try my ELC after the patch is done and I'll tell what good/bad things I'll find.

Till then, I'm expecting till patch 7.6 a huge amounts of whining-threads about ELC AMX being OP :Smile_trollface-3:

Edit:
Good things: Fast tank, good damage and penetration gun for it's tier, pretty fast reloading, has a good traverse speed.

Bad Things: Typical french tanks stupid gun elevation and dispersion, you can turn your turret like u're in a german td, doesn't have auto-loader, really paper armour(taking full dmg from all the tanks), HP pool reduced with 20 hit points from the previous tier 5 amx 12t.And the most bad things from all.It has only 2 crew members, commander and driver.Commander has 4 crew skills which means if it dies, you're dead too without reviving him back.

Neutral: It doesn't have that oscillating turret which other tanks above him got.I don't know if it's a good thing or a bad one.Only thing I know that your turret won't be destroyed everytime you get hit in that zone.

Weakness = HE

Armour of a T1 and two crew.

Hence the M3 Lee reference, but the speed more than makes up for it and most German tanks can't aim down far enough.

Realy slow reload is another. It's like a TD, with slow reload, but it drives like a T-50-2.

I'd compare it to a fast G1B, or just an AMX with one shell instead of 6 (useless on the reload).

Well, on tankopedia it's written that turret traverse speed is 44, and it's not able to turn it? Wow. That's why every Elc that passed me, didn't aimed at me lol.

Well I've seen TDs with similar turret traverse (gun traverse really), it works very well considering it's limited firing arc.

Just 1 guestion, if I may...

Not offending anyone.

Did french army, at any given point in history, recruit japanese midgets, to operate ELC AMX?


I realize no offense is intended and you're just joking, but some may find this sort of comment distasteful, so it's best to simply steer clear of ethnic/nationalistic jokes.  Thanks in advance.

Warning issued.

T-50-2 will fall onto it's side, ELC AMX will soar through the air thanks to it's midget size.

Or, it could be a Japanese made remote controlled tank!

No, I guess they were operated by French children in cost of a 50 lolipops. (Just kidding, just kidding. French people isn't very tall too.)
