One thing driving me crazy in this tank is every hit causes red tracks + red engine at the same time. The tank needs Large Repair Kit..

This tank needs a pocking tighter spread given that the penalty for rushing a shoot is THAT severe. I don't care about the aiming time.  Come on, this gun is so biased, that it can shoot behind you. It shoot all over and under the place. Give 10s aim time for deadly center accuracy, but no more of this crappy fecal spread.

This thing will teach you how to play AMX series. It has potent gun in close combat or long range sniper anything between is either you get spotted and die or miss most of the shots.

And speed vise - None of the AMX 13 tanks isn't T71. They need to pick up some speed and turn like a whale for a LT. But mix of solid speed and solid auto-loading guns make them deadly. + they can spot.

BTW 900 damage is solid in T6 tank.

 

Well it's a tier 7 really.

 

I haven't found this tank that bad, the gun depression is a bit awkward, as is the elevation but as you say basically snipe from a settled position against targets that can't usually see you or get in close and shoot lone targets.

 

Little worried about the 1375 though, as it's the same gun with worse MM.

 

How does it compare to the T71? much worse pen for a start.

Gotta love the AMX 12t now that I've bit better learned how to play with it, ace'd it two times already, few Patrol Dutys and accused of using aimbot when killed Tier 8 med using auto-aim and chasing him around shooting his back :trollface:

While it isn't as bad as when I first bought it (tier V with MM up to X) it just can't contribute the same way the other tier VIs can or even the ELC AMX for that matter.

 

It has a horrible HP/T ratio, aim time, accuracy/mobile accuracy, armour and health (it is a light tank though). This tank has nothing that would make me take it over the T37, the autoloader isn't even a French exclusive any more either.

 

As a scout? Well i'm sure it'll do well enough in passive scouting with binoculars and a camo net, if it gets to it's spot before an active scouting 59-16 or T37 does it's first sweep.

 

It's like a medium/light hybrid of tier 5.5

 

I don't look forward to the 13 75 and the promise of tier X games with 144mm of penetration like the 12t of old, even with better stats elsewhere.

My 12t review.

 

- Armour: Nope. Doesnt have. Je suis desole. Next.

- Speed: Decent top speed. Bad turn rate. Bad acceleration. Bleeds off all speed on hills or turns.

- Gun: Decent burst damage. Takes 37 years to reload a clip. Has no gun vertical movement at all. Good for shooting clay pigeons.

 

Verdict: Total merde.

 

Is the 13 75 any better?

AMX 12t is really a strange tank...

_it's a scout?

NOPE: it has a bad acceleration (don't stop to fire or for anything else if you are spotted)

            and it's not too easy to reach top speed (64 km/h)

            his traction is also horrible, beacause of his tiny tracks (it often get detracked and then finished in the fastest way possible

 

_It's a sniper or might be used for a "still" playstyle?

NOPE: not too bad accuracy for a light autoloader, but your teammates will get quite angry (and they are right) if they see you behind bushes waiting for free frags

           its penetration with is merely enough to penetrate someone flank or rear (even with gold it's not worth trying to penetrate the front of any tank)

           its depression and elevation are absolutely terrible! (hull-down tactics are not t be used at all)

           if you get spotted you die instantly (scouts are killed in sight. everyone just think "free EXP and Credits!" :playing:

           its camouflage rate it's... it's just... you understood me :D

 

_it's a flanker/finisher/"stealkiller"?

YEP: sadly one of the most used tactics is the stealkiller (await for teammates to surround someone and you hit last shots ad get the kill :trollface:

         his autoloading system permits a finisher strategy (lone tanks possibly slow and non-turreted and with around 600-700 hp left)

         it's not suggested to use it as a distraction but good player may also try something like beek-a-boo tactic and helping teamates to finish the enemy

 

In a nutshell... the tank has a straordinary playstyle and must be mastered quite a time to start having some nice battles. (I had many brillliant battles thanks especially to active teammates)

but i'm the same opinion Prometheus_ts is... it really needs a buff or a better Match Making :sceptic:

Have nice MM battles :)

 

DID YOU HEAR ME WG?? ADJUST THIS Match Making SYSTEM ONCE FOR ALL!

AMX 12 t sucks, but what tier 6 light wouldn't suck at something? Just play it as a flanker, that's the only tip i can give

Its not that bad, penetration and damage are ok for a t6 med/light, i actually quite like it. But the softstats of the gun are utter crap. Takes ages to aim and if you move the turret the aimcircle explodes. And you cant hit anything while driving. A buff for the 12t, and i suppose even more the 1375, is still needed to make them competitive against the other t6 LTs.

It isn't a bad tank, however, when is WG going to remove the scout MM? When are they going to understand that this tank IS NOT A SCOUT?

 

Without the scout MM this thing is not in need of a buff IMO.

It is not only about the 12t. The whole scouting concept in WoT is pretty much crap atm.

Corridor maps, city maps, less and less bushes, tier 8+ tanks with great view ranges.

Had some great games during the last days :)

 

I'm doing really well with the AMX 12 t, hadn't expected that tank to be so effective + so much fun. :)

I'm having a bit of a torrid time with this tank at the moment. I'm actually enjoying the tank but i can't get a decent team at all and end up losing games right now. I'm doing my share a lot of the time, even with a tank that's not upgraded which includes dishing out over 1k of damage at times. MM is being cruel to me it seems. 

 

My moans about about the tank are ammo count. Not enough by a long way and gun elevation / depression is poor.

ammo count is always a bit of a nightmare as if you have a game where you get too shoot of loads you find your self sweating as the ammo count drops to empty

Ok my skeptical side is about to have a moan at the match making thanks to the 9.6 patch now. Sub 12% win rate on this tank at the moment. No way that's down to my piss poor play

I have only one light tank in garage, and it's amx 12t..... i hate that thing, acceleration is not good, kind a sluggish, and i'm having lots of trouble with that thing. Ok, i'm really not good in light tanks, but still... hate it. Think i'm gonna try with Chinese. Or American? I'm not used to play with autoloaders, so what do you suggest?

Evenin' all!

I just started playing this tank, and I'm finding it really difficult to play effectively, to find the balance between being passive and aggressive. It's really easy to get caught out by mediums and shot to pieces. You can see the mediums looking at you with greedy little eyes!

This tank dies easily, although the top speed is decent.
Probably just need to learn to play better!
