So I am having a fun time with the BatChat so far in its abilities as a scout, sniper, assassin and SURVIVOR!

 

The Bat.-Châtillon 12 t leads to the Bat.-Châtillon 25 t AP, the AMX 30 1er prototype, and the AMX 13 90.

So, the question is which one so I grind out first? I plan on taking ownership of all three and eventually their Tier Xs too.

 

What is your take on any of these 3 tanks in terms of playstyle, effectiveness, WNR and enjoyment???

Which one would YOU grind out first and why?

I'd rank them:

 

1. B-C 25 t AP

2. AMX 13 90

3. AMX 30

 

There's nothing terrible about the AMX 30; it's a decent Medium, but it doesn't have some of the powerful characteristics of the other two. 

 

25 t has a 6 shell clip with 300 alpha.  It's a devastating force if played right.

 

13 90:  I don't actually have the top modules on this yet, including the gun, but it's much like the rest of the line that I've loved.  Auto loader with view range, mobility, and camo on the move.  That checks all my boxes.

I did AMX 30, BC25t AP, then AMX 13-90, because of how my crews for all three were progressing, and I was trying to 3-mark some of the French light line before moving on. All 3 tanks are good, so you'll be happy with any route, I think.

 

One thing to point out: the mid gun on the AMX 30, the 100mm SA47, is the same gun as the top gun on the BC25t AP. So if you research and progress through the AMX30 first, when you do unlock the Batchat, you can run it with the top gun from the start.

The gun aspect of the AMX is great info...thanks!

yeah the 25 t has the ability  to be a game changer more so than the two AMX tanks. I think the AP has a playstyle that is more along the lines of the Tier 8 than the AMXs. Would you agree?

I am on the 12 T now as well.  I am only here because I put a great crew into the Lorraine 40t that I won over the holidays and that's my money maker, so I play it a lot and am now working on its 6th Skill.  I'm 120,000 away from the B-C 25 t AP, and cannot wait to get my lovely ladies back into the Lorraine!  

 

I'm not the best in light tanks but I really suck in French lights.  I've got my 12t set up for passive scouting, and that has helped, but it depends on the map.


Good luck!

awesome! jealous!!!

 

I am glad I enjoy the 12t at tier 8 cuz I will be running it for a LONG time to get all three 9s!

It sounds like you do too.

 

As for the Lorraine 40T, I love it to death despite playing it too aggressive, ending up in the garage and promising not to do that again...LOL

LOL - I do not enjoy the 12t b/c I suck in it.  The main difference for me is that the Lorraine can clip someone out if they have 1000HP.  I find the 12t's lack of penetration and alpha a big problem for my playstyle. I do exceptionally well in the Lorraine and am under the impression that the Tier X Bat plays similarly.  Regardless, I have too good of a Lorraine crew not to put it in a Tier X tank.  Cannot wait for Tier IX to switch back to Medium Tanks!


Good luck to you, Sir.  I'm jealous that you like and play well in Lights.  I'm just not that good of a tanker!

I unlocked the bat ap first, haven’t been playing the tier 8 lately, but when I get back to it I’ll be going for the amx 30, then the 1390.

I’m more interested in the 1390 than the amx 30, but my reasoning is that I only have one French LT crew and I don’t want to grind a second one out that would only be useful for a single tier 8 grind, so I’ll get the 30, then be able to just promote my crew up immediately when I unlock the 1390.

Its a long grind to get 3 tier IXs from a single VIII.

I suspect Ill come and go from the VIII as I gain the first and inevitably get distracted elsewhere..LOL

Personally I love my 13 105 and 13 90 so I would take the 90 over the other two.

I'm not a fan of longer reloading clips so I never bothered with the batchat  line  amx30 is a very good support medium

I agree with this rank. I personally wouldn't bother getting the AMX 30 at all. The BT 25 t and the AMX 13 90 are both keepers. The AMX 13 105 is meh

all 3 require solid 3-5 perk crews to maximize the enjoyment/fun factor.

 

  • I adored the 1390 when it was a tier 8, and don't intend to sell it
  • I purchased the 13-105 semi recently, but don't have a crew for it yet
  • I adored the Amx 30P and kept it after buying the Amx 30B.  I enjoy them both, but not nearly as much after they broke the gun, gave the turret some fake armor and upped the dpm.  while the gun was semi-wonky in the past I found the standard pen, and fantastic shell velocity more reliable than what it has now
  • the batchat is a great tank, but it's not as relaxing to play as LTs imho.  I enjoy it in small doses, mostly because of the maps, and the feeling that I have a responsibility to play it well dishing out lots of damage compared to playing in a more supporting role in the other two lines.  (not sure if that makes sense)
    • in light of the above, I've been playing the heck out of the 13-105 on common test, and honestly enjoy it more than the batchat.  I'll probably be moving some crews around at the next crew retraining discount to get a solid crew into it.

I unlocked the BC25t AP first because I had the Lorr 40t and the good crew from it, and I needed a tech tree medium to put them in. I tried playing the BC25tAP with the stock gun and couldn’t pen anything. After upgrading the gun I did better, but I did NOT enjoy the BC25t AP as much as I’d hoped, and not nearly as much as the Lorr.
I wish I’d unlocked the AMX 13 90 first, so now I’m grinding the BC 12t again to unlock the 13 90. When I do, I’ll move up the crew from the BC 12t.
I kept the AMX 12t at Tier 6 because I love that thing and the crew is decent, so if I ever want to grind the BC 12t to unlock the AMX 30 I’ll have to move the AMX 12t’s crew up.

B-C 25t., because it is the only relevant tank of those three.

I had the 1390 from before the LT change (RIP 6 round mag; it needs those rounds back hard at tier 9 imo). The 12t and 1390 play very similarly but the 1390 is less zippy and a bigger target. Researched the amx 30 a little while ago because I really love the m48 and they seem very similar. Working on the batchat slowly, feel like when I get it the expectations are going to be high.

At the end of the day, a lot of it comes down to the preference for what you like to play/what you play well in.  Also, do you care more about the next tank in the line, or do you care more about the eventual Tier 10?

If I had to rank them on my own personal preference, i'd rank them like:

Tier 9:

1)  AMX 13 90
2) BatChat AP
3) AMX 30

Tier 10:

1) BatChat
2) AMX 30B
3) AMX 13 105
