Just for fun :
What if the AMX 13 105 would have a 4 shots with 320 alpha autoloader  instead of its 3 shots, 390 alpha ? 

Alpha being lower would be balanced by the fact that bouncing one shell is less dramatic, since it's 25% of the clip instead of 33%.

Also, an intra-shot reload of 2.25 sec would be ok I guess, and a clip reload time increased a little bit to keep the same calculated DPM.

The clip potential would go from 1170 to 1280, less than a 10% increase, and shooting the whole clip would take 6.75 seconds instead of 5.45 sec...  And it still is far from the Bat-Chat 25t 1950 damage potential.

Also, for balance : alpha is lower but, shooting 2 shots before going back to cover would be 2.25 sec instead of 2.73. And you could do this twice.

But mostly, I guess it would make the tank more ''light like'' compared to the bat-chat, fo all the reasons mentioned above.

Of course, some would compare it to the TVP T 50/51, also a 4 shots 320 alpha, but the huge differences in gun dispersion, pen loss over distance, intra-shot reload and clip reload would put those 2 in completely different categories.

I'm only at the tier 8 right now, but when as I was looking at replays, this came to mind, and it would be more consistent with the french light tanks line : 4 shots autoloader, from tier 6 to 10.

What do you think ?

The 13 105 is fine, and one of the best non-wheeled tier 10 light tanks. Why fiddle with what works? Literally the only thing that tank could use is the tier 10 light tank pen drop-off to be removed.

The light tank pen dropoff is crap anyway.  It utterly crippled the tanks from their intended purposes.  And now with WLTs out there, their effectiveness is further eroded.

Guys !!
You don'T get it !
Let me ask you differently then :
If the AMX-13 105 had a two gun choice, the one it has now and the one I decribed above, which one would you prefer ?

Thanks !
