The AMX 13 105 combines a hard-hitting, inaccurate autoloader with light tank mechanics (always-on camouflage). The tank can be fun and frustrating in the same battle. I hope that Wargaming improves its gun accuracy and reduces its terrain resistances, as the tank is currently underpowered.
Strengths and Weaknesses
+ Excellent frontal gun depression (-8)
+ Excellent alpha (390)
+ Manageable clip size (3)
+ Good top speed (68)
– Very poor accuracy (0.42), much worse than the tier 7-9 French lights (0.38)
– Turns very slowly for a light tank due to high terrain resistances
– Poor gun elevation (+12)
– Relative to other tier 10s, low view range (390)
– As with all tier 10 lights, suffers from high penetration loss over distance
I talk through how I’m reading the battle as it unfolds and discuss key decisions and mistakes. My hope is that these videos meaningfully help players improve their gameplay.
