So, I've been grinding the French Ligth tank tree ins this past weeks. Currenty on the AMX 13 75. I played all of the lights on the few test servers that opened in this past few months, and all of them had the same issue: a small little stupid bump followed by a small little "A" or "D" key press and the tank is automatically flipped - physics ftw. I lost count on how many times I already flipped the AMX 12t and the AMX 13 75 while doing a little turn on Sand River dunes, or on Highway and I just wanna rage quit. Do I need to put weights on the sides to balance the tank while turning, like some buildings have in case of earthquakes? And also, once you flipped upside down is game over, nothing people try can put the tank on his tracks again...

 

Give me some tips to avoid flipping this.

Yeah light tanks in general are more prone to flipping since they changed the physics, a year or two ago. Especially french tanks tend to flip super easy, which ruins the fun since you have to be super careful over any terrain irregularities and even slow down considerably sometimes when you are going downhill over some bumps to avoid crashing which defeats the purpose of them having (slightly) better mobility than fast mediums. This is especially obvious when I play French light back to back with my Batchat 25t which feels like it has downforce, that is how much more stable it feels compared to barely faster 13 90 and 13 105. I was told also that WG support advises against improving terrain resistance values, which you naturally want to do with all tanks especially ones that rely on mobility. Apparently BiA, vents, off road driving, coffe make this issue worse which is just stupid. So only solution is to be extra careful driving or not drive them at all. WP WG

Guess having a 15t tank with 1m between tracks doing turns at 60 kph does not help this... But well, yesterday flipped my 13 75 quite a few times until I decided to sell it and get into the BC 12t. Now that thing is quite a challenge while stock, since it has no speed, no traverse, bad ground resistances, so it's quite fine in that aspect :trollface:

Go easier on accelerator when making turns.

I have flipped my ltwt more often that my AMX 12t and AMX 1375.....like 100 times more and i'm not gentle on the throttle.

More gas allows you to roll over and end up on your tracks again :trollface:

Usually when I start to be carefull I end up on the roof

Well, with french lights 90% of the times I flipped the tank, I end up with the tracks up in the air and then I can go do something else for the next 30sec because is pretty much impossible to put one french light tank up in the tracks again.

 

Now playing the B-C 12t from time to time and I didn't had that big issue with flipping or overturning. Guess the tank is morre wider 1 or 2cm and that makes difference.

Different kinds of luck then. Your luck is biased.

 

I have also the T71 DA and that thing already scared me some times with some corners. Its taller but is also way more wider and a bit heavier than the french little things, but it can also make you feel you are going to do some loops in the ground if the tank decides to flip over.

Huh, To me they seem to be very flipresistant. About the same as a tank at the same speed.
But a car has a much higher center of gravity, and a LOT less ground resistance, and thus should flip a LOT easier.
