Recently unlocked the Batchat 12t and had two good games in the thing. I was originally intending to get 200k xp out of the way and just unlock the 25t AP and move my crew up, however, I've heard good things about the 13 90 and to a lesser extent the 13 105. Anyone here have experience with the French tier 9 and 10 lights, and can tell me if they're worth the extra 190k xp on the 12t?

Not played the 105 yet, though I have heard it is one of the better tier 10 lights (though that isn't setting the bar very high). The 1390 I actually really like. To the point that I might have to rebuy it actually.

I've been hearing that the 13 90 is a great tier 9 light. Might be worth training a Christmas girl in it and train up a new French light crew as I plan on slapping my good crew into the Batchat tier 9 + 10s

Mobile, good camo, and the gun is actually really comfortable to use. Only really problem with it is the dodgy view range. 

 

It is just a straight upgrade over the BC 12t. Lots of fun.

My little ocd tries to get me to grind all 3, we shall see. Halfway to bc25ap, 30 in the bag already. Little painful at times to get even the doubles done, so might call it a day as soon as I've the bc jr researched.

1390 is a real solid tier 9 LT, worth grinding to

13 90 is fun unlike the B-C 12t, cant comment on the other two. altho i do have AMX 30 unlocked i am slowly making my way to the B-C 25t AP.

 

if you can manage the B-C 12t i'd suggest just unlocking all 3 vehicles that way you dont have to get back to it on a later time when you have a change of mind and end up buying it back for it. like i had with the T-34, i would sell it everytime i unlocked one of the next tanks because i realy hated it in my early days.

unfortunately for you, your ocd is kinda right.

 

all 3 tier 9s are very good/great. Ok, 25 ap is ok, not good/great, but if you want the batchat... Tier 10 - don't bother with 30b. And 105, well... it's a tier 10 light; probably the best, but still a tier 10 light :P

 

personally, I intend to keep 13 90 for a long time and get the AMX 30 when I free the 3rd crew I have(plan to 3 mark all of them till tier 8, then move the crew up while inventing a 4th guy).

BC 12t was a lot und of fun in last year's FL, waitfor that and the grind will fly by.

You will probably need 2-3 gold clips to pen the objective's side armor though.

I like the 13 90. Kind of hit a brick wall trying to get my second MOE, but I think its a good tank.

 

I unlocked both the 13 90 and 25t AP. I didn't go for the AMX 30 Prototype purely because I have a Centurion AX and saw no point in playing another out of meta Nato tank, That and after grinding over 400k XP with the BC 12t I was a little sick of playing it.

Everyone said B-C 12t is terrible, but I think it's pretty good. Very fast and agile and has an autoloader.

 

Already grinded 13 90 and Batchat 25 AP.

I loved it initially too...then I realized the tank has one of the most frustrating guns in the game. I have stopped torturing myself with the AMX after having some infuriating bad RNG with the gun.

If you like the BC12t gameplay, then of course. All french lights play the same from the tier 6 to the tier 10. They just get better.

 

I'm having a lot of fun with the BC12t unlocking the two mediums. The 1390 is fine, but I still have to unlock the top gun. So far it is just a BC12t with worse MM.

Currently grinding marks on it and I agree. Its a fine tank. But it suffers from some non tank related issues.

 

- Its tier 8 and will 97% of the time see TX.

- World of heavy Tanks. 50-70% of the enemies will be higher tiers HTs which you can forget about penning even with gold. 

- Its a LT and dependent on the team doing damage. The amount of bad players have never been this high in the game.

- 1.0. LTs became are even harder to play now than ever due to many bushes being completely broken. Some give full camo some give nothing.

- World of corridor maps to satisfy Bob the 45% Type HE derp driver.

 

I am very, very happy I grinded all 3 lines before the "improved" MM and 1.0.

I did enjoy the 13 90 quite a bit and I quite love the 13 105 to be honest, it's a nice grind and the 13 105, despite being a gimped medium, is enjoyable.

 

The 12t actually isn't bad for me and I quite like playing it even though it's one of the least competitive tier 8 light tanks. Bonus is that you can play it in skirmishes/TB's.

TBH i recently bought back the 1390 to grind some missions. it was, and still is, really good tank. Think i have about 70% WR in it all solo, which for a light is decent

If you like the bc-12t, you will definitely like the 13-90. The 13-105 can have its moments (mostly versus tier 8s), but it struggles versus tier x tanks.

12t leads to 3 good tier 9 tanks, very worth it. 1390 is amazing, amx 30 is great, bc 25 AP is decent as well. 

 

12t in itself is a lot of fun, have fond memories of grinding all 3 tier 9's with it :)

one of the few 3 marked tanks I have.  I don't focus on 3 marks, but due to the triple grind on it, it just happened.

The 13-90 is a nice tank.  I happen to think that the 4 rounds instead of 6 make it better due to the reduced time exposed to danger.
