The AMX 13 75 isn't that bad, it's a flanker tank. It's agile (though bleeds speed in corners), low profile and has a very good gun.

Yesterday I killed 2 IS-7's, a Maus and a JgPzE-100 (not in one game but over a few) and numerous tier 8's and 9's by playing carefully and flanking them if possible. If I cannot get over to them to flank then drive off then i'd go help my team somewhere else.

I'm not an elite player (49% winrate (though do get many bad teams)) yet get around 900 - 1100 exp in quite a lot of matches. The gun penetration isn't bad at all for it's purposes it just cannot be played as a frontal attack tank for obvious reasons. The penetration is something like 106-160mm which can penetrate the sides of many tanks. I don't understand why people seem to hate this tank, my crew isn't even 100% yet.

Since I get many tier 9 and 10 games I only see the fun of AMX 13's getting even more fun once I get the 13 90, 1440 average potential damage looks like it'll be fun!  :Smile-playing:
EDIT: (Tier 10 game, 4 kills)

The 13/75 isn't bad itself. But why is an american copycat of the same tier better in every way except HP by a mockable amount, RoF in an irrelevant amount (When you take DPS and DPM into account) and detection range by a small amount?

I've been fed up of playing it for quite some time and just grinded the last 20k XP in a rush to unlock the next one and forget about it.

I do agree that the T71 is better in many ways, but that just makes them both very good tanks. I can kill the T71 pretty easily and so can he. It would be nice for a 13 75 buff though so that the much better looking one has similar stats to the T71. I haven't got fed up with playing it due to liking the fact it deals damage well and can just drive away.

I think the T71 is designed to be stronger because it leads to some tanks nobody gives a crap about playing while AMX 13 75 brings you to epic 13 90 and batchat. Also the french look better :P

This.

Also its compensatory after the T21 nightmare. :)
I'll wonder if WG ever rebalances it, after all they rarely care about slight imbalances, the Lorraine 40t (aka hard barrier for the BatChat) are way more irritating and still there..
