AMX 19 90 - Ever wanted to play a fast tank?

Seriously, this is the most OP tank to date that I've played. Top speed? 60+, gets there almost as fast as a T50-2. Damage? Punishes a Tiger 2 or E75 with out problem. Did I mention <2.5s reload time (for up 6 shells)? Did I mention over 1k health (i.e. can take multiple heavy hits and keep on going)? Did I mention you being able to get through and kill any arty on any map short of El Haluf pretty much on your own?

In short, if you ever liked playing a medium you need to take the AMX 19 90 fully upgraded for a spin; it will put a smile on your face with the speed, damage and utter OP silliness you can put it through

This is an example game, note that the JT was soloed and exp is not doubled (normal game).

sorry only messin good game , its an awesome tank
but ya it'l definatly be getting a nerf prob to mobility and view range i'd say because it trounces the T-50-2 and they've already said that's being nerfed , stock lorraine on the otherhand .... that needs major love

To be fair they a Patton should only get off one, maybe two shells before it's dead and/or the AMX is moving away again. I know I've pissed of T9 mediums that way at least

Got my 13 90 the other day and got it fully upgraded in a few hours. It's a great little tank to play not only because it is a decent tank but the fun factor that comes with it I would recommend it to anyone bored of the grind like I was.

Thoroughly enjoying playing this tank even when with the hopeless teams that you get far to often

Nah, the french tanks are fine but you have to plan for them by going in groups rather then solo charges or expect to take punishment accordingly. It is the same as arty; you have to play to the fact they are there and certain tactics become more risky due to it but they are far from impossible to deal with as they are utter glass cannons.

I think you should just skip the amx 40 outright and use free exp on the 12t's modules as it really sucks stock but theres no need to skip the 13 75 its a good tank and save your free xp for taking the grind out of the lorraine
