Advanced AMX-13 Tank is a level 13 French unique Heavy Cavalry unit unlocked in Information Age. Its predecessor is Honored AMX-13 Tank. It's researched in level 14 Armory. It is the French version of MBT Mk5.

General Information[]

The Advanced 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 Advanced 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.

  • Due to the French's nation power of troops trained quicker; the Advanced AMX-13 Tank can be trained in 4 minutes and 40 seconds which is 70 seconds earlier than standard heavy cavalry (5 minutes and 50 seconds)
  • It is one of the strongest units in the game; as well as the strongest heavy cavalry
  • It has more damage than standard tanks and can minimize casualties
  • As a French unique unit, it can inflict more damage and has more health than standard tanks

Historical Description[]

Main battle tanks are built for firepower, protection, and mobility. France's AMX Leclerc excels in all three. The fast acceleration permitted by its light chassis is invaluable in the cover-based style of modern tank warfare. Its low-profile hull guarded by a combination of traditional, reactive, and composite armors. While some may question the inclusion of Soviet-style autoloader, its armaments are otherwise on par with contemporary designs. All this quality comes at a high cost that makes the Leclerc the most expensive MBT of its generation.

The model went into production in 1991 and entered service the following year, just missing the Gulf War. France has in fact only deployed its Leclercs on peacekeeping missions in Kosovo and Lebanon. However, the vehicle has seen combat in Yemen under the United Arab Emirates. Reinforced with up-armor kits, they suffered zero total losses and only one crew death. The Leclerc's steep price tag has kept anyone aside from the wealthy UAE from importing it, but the French fleet is being upgraded as part of the Scorpion modernization program.

Attacking Strategies[]

  • The Advanced AMX-13 Tank has a lot of health but is slow and has low attack power, so use it in groups
  • The Advanced 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 Advanced 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 Advanced 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 Advanced AMX-13 Tank would ignore defensive troops and would pursue their targets which are defensive buildings. However, if a defensive troop attacks it, the Advanced 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 Advanced AMX-13 Tank is a good alliance troop due to its high health; making it longer to kill them
  • Advanced 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
