... and it's a freaking awesome SPG !

This thing as not a single cons ! Good gun, good mobility, insane camo, very wide gun arc. No way, there is not any default on it !

My crew (bought them at 100%) : Posted Image

Mah stats after first day : Posted Image


And I just won a day of premium account for accomplishing a mission :D

It's nice to see that someone is happy with their Arty.

Well done. Both for the stats and the fact you enjoy the AMX13....

I bought it also on saturday and my stats are not so good but I like it too.
I had experience only with tier III SPG which I sold after 8.6 but this is completely different.
Mobility is superb, this SPG has fun factor.

You played 78 games on that arty in one day alone? Holy crap buddy, you have too much free time  :smile:  But well done according to those stats and I'm glad that you enjoy playing with it. I liked it quite a lot too

I love this arty, even though it's not really what I like to play (Mostly like my heavy tanks and some TD'ing).

Yesterday I aced it with a 3.5k damage and went capping when my team was destroyed and there was two heavies left of them... I wasn't spotted the whole game and got that special achievement of capping while being hidden (raider?)... So many great games with this one!

Of course, there are bad games as well. Sometimes I just keep missing even though I do the same kinda shots every game... 91 dmg a whole game compared to the 3.5k is quite a big difference.

So... recommended? I have it researched and I'm tempted to get it, but after the nerf my old artillery got sold. Is this an exception? I have asked before in a different thread, the answers were generally not very positive.

I highly recommend it. The gun works. But the thing is so small you can hide in so many places and still be able to fire.

It's definitely better than the AMX 105 that came before it, this one actually doesn't bounce half the shells on a KV-1.

I haven't played arties before that anti-arty patch... I guess there's a reason for some of that nerf as this arty does really well for me. I often oneshot tanks with this one, although you have to get a direct hit on the top if they have 100% health and good armor with the side that face you. Open tops are usually dead right away (Even double killed two hellcats that was snuggling together).
I've done more than 3.5k dmg with it a couple of times and usually have a high position (or top) when the battle is done. As with most arties, you will have games where you just seem to miss all the time, but usually it averages out.
The best part about this tank, is the mobility and the fact that you actually can charge in to get a shot off as an aggressive TD.... just don't let them get that shot against you  :teethhappy:
This artillery is more fun than the American mid-tiers I've played. Speed and high dmg shots.

I hate the reload of top gun and price of shells so i still use the stock one. My crew is still on 92 percent.

I really like this arty! I am mainly a light- /mediumtank player as I love "hybrid" tanks, that can perform many roles in a single batlle. Useally arty cannot, but this thing can!

-At the first few mins you are basic arty, capable to shoot well known enemy passivescout bushes if no other things in sight. +can be in uncommon arty spot as for the speed to get there ;)

-Can continue to be arty, relocating with ease.

-has good view range (360m) !! This with binocks, full camo crew makes this thing a capable passive scout! And can back up when safe, shoot and then go back to passive spot to reload.

-TD -mode. This is actually wery good as 13 F3 has better gun depression than chinese tanks =D OFC the aim time is horrible in TD mode. if can shoot side/rear or a weakspot, this really does oneshot. (like a KV-2)

 

As basic arty, this has good damage, long aiming time =(

Some gameplay as in arty/TD mode: (with finnish commentary)

It's truly awesome, and the 155 50 that comes after is even better, though very different. However, F3 is the last one you can really hide at all and in fact it has a great camo value. The thing that bothers me with the F3 is the long aiming time, which does not mesh well with its high mobility. It takes time to set up, and that doesn't go along well with the impatience of randoms.

V     Obusier de 155 mm C mle. 1917     24     720/720 HP     77/185 mm     505 Credits/12 Gold     2.46 r/m     
VI     Canon de 155 mm de 33 calibres     20     950/720 HP     90/185 mm     1,000 Credits/12 Gold     1.96r/m

 

I know the first gun is a little less acurate, but if I dont mind shooting premium ammo, got plenty of credits, is it an option to just use the first gun on this and shoot a little more. or is the acuracy so much worse than the second gun ?

 

Its 185mm, 720hp and 2.46r/m

against

90mm, 950hp and 1.96r/m

or

185mm, 720hp and 1.96r/m

No, don't use gold ammoes, this HEAT are crappy at range. And since with 90 mm of pene you can penetrate few tanks, KV's front...... or anything with around 80mm of armor can be penetrate with HE, you should get the second gun & only use HEAT shells at low range.

 

Btw, I recently bought the Lorraine 155 mle. 50. It's a nice arty, even if the damage is sometimes INSANELY low.
