Well idk what its called but i love this tank but theres 1 little thing that breaks it. Or actually 2. First thing is the matchmaking.. How can it be put with tier 9? or is it just the test.. The second problem is that the gun cant aim up lol... V screeny V Thats the highest it can get..

Isn't that the dedicated t5 scout? would explain the matchmaking.

Well AMX-12t can fight in 8-10 matches as scout like every one else. I see no problem in that really but gun depression was terrible.

No, its not.
Its in the 'full' light/medium branch as a tier 5 light tank.

Looks like a FAIL tank...
cant scout, cant penetrate anyone,(edit: most) even from sides and back.. whats the point of this tank?
why it is matched against t9 ?  :blink:
I repeat myself again its not a scout...
well I will play few more games and maybe will find some tactics for it... but I doubt it..
will be a long grind to tier7 amx 13/90 :(

This tanks has many weaknesses, but the cylinder and penetration of the gun, combined with the speed makes it a fun tank. Running against T9 is a bit much, though.

And what is it?
It's definitely a scout. I used to play with it on test server. Low profile, good speed. And it's cannon is very suitable for annihilating arty quickly.

t50, t50-2 are scouts.. I know , played both.
that French thing not a scout for me. low profile: nice, speed is ok,
But playing against t9? I don't know...

You're right. French AMX light tanks aren't dedicated scouts like T-50-2 is. They have more versatile role, especially amx 13/90. But still they are very good at it.
Imho amx 12t works best as scout or arty hunter. And it's just T5 tank, it's not like you are going to spend a lot of time with it.

This tank is not a scout, it is a support tank. It is how ever tiered WAY too high and need to be brought back to max T7. It is made of tin foil, it cannot brawl at all, and it seems to me that for its small size it is very easily spotted. The last gun is OK but nothing out of the ordinary. The elevation and depression need to be corrected though even if it is realistic, it make actuall game play very hard, there are times when you can hit targets you can clearly see.

the 12t is terrible, terrible. Turns like shit, gets put against tier 9s which it can't hurt with its 100mm penetration peashooter and gets its engine destroyed every match, if it's not oneshotted. Best used as a suicide scout to get exp faster to get the amx 75 which atleast can hurt something.

I agree with all current posts since the update and have noticed that when you change ammo types it takes a long time and if in battle can be fatal. The time is fgar in excess of other tank changeovers (all nations)

Played 4 matches with AMX 12t tonight.

On 3 matches the max enemy tier was 8. On one match it was 9. On these matches the lowest non-arty enemy was T6 on 2 of them and T7 on the other 2.

Question is: Is stock AMX 12 really only meant as a cannon fodder(try hurting any T7 tank with it)? Is it getting the same MM treatment as the former T5 lights(t-50-2 etc)?

Arent the first matches supposed to have lighter matchmaking on every tank, since on AMX 12 it certainly doesnt seem so.

WG ninja removed the smart matchmaking, confirmed by overlord.

Because low tiers arent supposed to hurt higher tiers(except KV). That's why HE was gimped too.

If they changed it to tier 7 and lower then everything would be okay. You can scout tier 7's but tier 8+ no. You wont make any money in it its just fun to play with
