General Information[]

The AMX-13 Tank is the armored front runners among all troops. Its default behavior is to seek and destroy defenses. After all the defense buildings are destroyed the AMX-13 Tank will behave like a heavy infantry troop. With a large amount of hitpoints, it can endure more than any other troop of its age, as well as dealing a lot of damage before falling. However, its disadvantages include its low damage and is easily killed by Ballista Towers, Cannon Towers or Anti-Tank Guns.

  • It is one of the strongest units in the game; as well as the strongest heavy cavalry
  • It has more damage than standard heavy cavalry and can minimize casualties
  • As a French unique unit, it can inflict more damage and has more health than standard Heavy Cavalry

Historical Description[]

The AMX-13 was a French light tank that was designed to serve as both tank hunter and airborne assault vehicle. It featured a magazine-fed autoloader and an oscillating turret. When aiming up or down the entire turret would shift on the hinge, which allowed for better depression angles and a significantly larger gun. The AMX-13 was adapted into over a hundred variants that have served France and her allies in at least nine wars since 1953.

Attacking Strategies[]

  • The AMX-13 Tank has a lot of health but is slow and has low attack power, so use it in groups
  • The AMX-13 Tank is weak against many defenses grouped together
  • When pushing for trophies, you would need to destroy the Town Center or City Center. In many bases, the town center would be in the center of the base. First, train up an army of AMX-13 Tank and a Wall Breacher. When attacking, deploy your Wall Breacher and wait till it destroys the necessary walls. Then, deploy all your AMX-13 Tank units in the areas which the City Center is more close to. If there are a few defenses blocking the way, destroy them. Then rally your units to destroy the Town Center or City Center
  • The AMX-13 Tank would ignore defensive troops and would pursue their targets which are defensive buildings. However, if a defensive troop attacks it, the AMX-13 Tank will attack back until the defensive troop is killed; thus making it distracted. Try to use and deploy Ranged Infantry or Heavy Infantry after deploying the units to eliminate the defensive troops

Defensive Strategies[]

  • The AMX-13 Tank is a good alliance troop due to its high health; making it longer to kill them
  • AMX-13 Tank units are spawned by Stable or Tank Depot. With their high health, they are good to slow down the enemies advance
  • The Reinforcements technology in the Library spawns Main the units in the forest and they attack troops of the attacker
