The AMX 13 57 is the best autoloader at tier 7 – The combination of the gun, chassis and vision control features are unparalleled.
With update 1.14, it gets even better. The +2 km/h from field mods helps us get up to 69 km/h and the option to setup an alternative equipment configuration helps elevate the tank just a little bit more. I opted to run primarily a speed and vision oriented primary configuration but had the alternative setup for smaller maps or when top tier to squeeze out a little bit more damage. Even so, I'm left a little disappointed with the AMX 13 57, I was targeting 2.2k DPG but have fallen short of that target. My overall combined scores are the same as the AMX 13 75, only trading DPG for assist and vice-versa. I suspect if I was a little less active and a little more careful with my exposure times I would have turned in better results.
My advice for future markers is to be aware of your exposure time. While 720 damage within a clip is fantastic firepower, the exposure time of 7s to get it all out can be dangerous. Depending on the context, it's better to get 3-4 shots off then pull back into cover and reload your clip with the 'C' key. Sitting out there exposed for the full 7s is a disaster waiting to happen, whether that's from TDs, SPGs or actually aware enemies. The biggest threat to a 3MOE run is greed getting the better of us because we sat exposed for a second too long.
