As the Second World War nears its end, the French Army which was rebuilding that time after it was utterly defeated by the Wehrmacht that eventually led to the total invasion of France in 1941 finally developed a competitive medium battle tank, the AMX-13 90 which was mass produced in the early 1950’s were more than 2,000 units were delivered all equipped with the 75-millimeter gun, but the later versions of it improved its firepower as the French army equipped it with 90-millimeter guns.
In World of Tanks, this French Tier 9 light battle tank requires a player that has the right mindset and the right determination, because although the AMX-13 90 can be a rewarding tank to use in a game, but it is somewhat frustrating, because of its gun which is supposed to be for the main battle tank, or a heavy armor, which makes it very inaccurate during gun battles and this kind of tank was also known by many players to bring you quick death, and low kill ratio during the game despite being an autoloader.
Also, this tank is not a good flanker, and since its gun is not built for medium battle tanks, it takes a lot of time for it to rotate and aim.
However, for players who love challenges and improve their gun-handling and maneuvering, the AMX-13 90 light battle tanks are the very best to use. Also, its camouflage is perfect for concealment and wait for the perfect timing to expose the enemy’s weak spots.
The AMX-13 90 light battle tank is perfect for skirmishing and retreating tactics because of its great concealment ability. The AMX-13 90 however, has more downsides than it has good in it because players have issue about its poor gun depression and the elevation especially when flanking an opponent because you have to angle your hull up and down to allow you to get perfect targets that cannot be made normally especially when there are a lot of terrain bumps and mud dips considering also that it is a four autoloader for its gun.
When you want to play with an AMX-13 90 light battle tank, this works perfectly when you are a camper type of gamer or loves to wait for enemies to come out in the open or zeros in your crosshair. This is also perfect for scouting approaching enemies because of its speed. To give you more insight into the AMX 13 90 in WoT here are some of its best pros and cons.
