Shopping for an Awesome Premium Scout? Try the AMX 13 57
When I started up the French tech tree for the Bat Chat I actually thought of buying the AMX 13 57, but at the time it was a bit underwhelming due to its relatively poor pen against higher tier tanks.
Now, I’m really sorry I didn’t get it while it was on sale.
When the matchmaking for scout tanks changed earlier this year during the Great Light Tank Apocalypse, many regular light tanks were badly nerfed. In exchange, they got regular matchmaking.
But the AMX 13 57 was not nerfed, and still got the benefit from the new matchmaking scheme. All of a sudden, the 13 57 turned into an absolute beast, as it no longer faces the higher tiers.
If this tank does come on sale, I highly recommend getting one. The 57 mm autoloader spits out eight shells in about eight seconds doing 720 damage, it’s very accurate, and it’s fast enough to scoot in and out of harm’s way.
Check out the two videos by Aging Jedi to see why this tank is now one of the best premium lights in the game.
