The AMX ELC bis is a light tank but not a particularly fast and agile one. Top speed and acceleration are sufficient to get you around the battlefield, but you're not built to chase other light tanks, and the reduced turret movement with the powerful gun makes it difficult to circle slow heavy tanks. It is best to advance with caution and stay out of sight as long as possible for surprise assaults.

EXCEPT before 9.18 where the Amx ELC Bis had a PWT of 37 which made it a nippy light tank, but WG couldn't have that on a light tank after that so they reduced the PWT by almost 11. so it became a slug of a light compared to what it WAS. Link below

Mobility and maneuverability are some of the greatest assets of the M24 Chaffee. A top speed of 62 km/h and a good power-to-weight ratio should be enough to get you out of any pickle you might find yourself in. Sneak along little-used side routes and quickly traverse the battlefield while keeping an eye on the mini-map for isolated opponents, enemy scouts, and stray tank destroyers. The good view and radio range allow you to uncover enemy movements and report them back to your team. and then they have the gall to say that 1500 DPM IS SOLID, before it got nerfed it had almost 2K DPM.

Both on the short list of my most favorite tanks in the game, with the AMX imo being the most fun of both because of its shortcomings. Nice challenge to play and a beautifull little bug too.

Why are we getting articles on a 'special' that is almost over?
Are you having staff problems?

I played it a couple of months ago while going up the none wheeled french lights and enjoyed it, it obviously doesn't play as it used to but it also doesn't see as high tier and is still very effective. It's still one of the best passive lights at it's tier :)
