General info

The AMX-13 (HOT) in the garage.

The AMX-13 (HOT) is a Rank VI French light tank with a battle rating of 9.0 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.75 "La Résistance".

The main purpose, usage and tactics recommendations

General play style

The AMX-13 (HOT), at 9.0 can definitely do some damage, even to top-tier MBTs and (as of 1.81), helicopters. The six HOT ATGMs are enough to penetrate almost any armor in the game, save for the M1 IP's turret cheeks, and the T-64BV's upper glacis (with ERA in place). This makes it a viable tank destroyer, but unlike any of the MBTs, you cannot take a hit and survive. Even certain machine guns and aircraft cannons are capable of killing you easily. Use your spotting ability to alert your team to enemies, and try and get an ATGM in a soft spot, like crew or ammo. Just remember: You only have six ATGMs, after that, you're using a conventional gun, firing solid shot AP, which, can ammo rack (ie: T-64, T-80), but it's not a guaranteed kill.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Mouse-guided HOT missiles
  • Reasonably fast turret rotation speed.

Cons:

  • Autoreloader time after 12 shots are long.
  • After you run out of HOT missiles you have a 6.0 light tank.... at 9.0.
  • Only 6 ATGMs.
  • Horrendous gun performance at top tier, you will be unable to penetrate almost all enemies frontally.
  • Oscillating turret causes up and down bobbing of the gunsight when coming to a stop.
  • Mediocre mobility for a light tank.
