The AMX ELC bis in World of Tanks is a very fast light tank. It also has the ability to snipe out targets with its strong barrel. However, this would be for someone who can use a hull lock efficiently. Also, it would be beneficial for someone to be able to handle it at a fast speed. You need to use this tank in order to get the Bat. Châtillion 25 t, so that is the main reason it is for you; otherwise we would not recommend it. The hull lock limits how powerful this tank could be.

AMX ELC bis Cons:
The AMX ELC bis could be much more of a threat in World of Tanks, that is, if it didn’t have a hull lock. The hull lock can limit how much damage you can do. It doesn’t make much sense to have a hull lock on a scout. Furthermore, you will have to compensate for this factor. Speed will also compensate for this as it is screaming fast.

AMX ELC bis Strategy Breakdown:
The AMX ELC bis need to be used wisely in World of Tanks. We classify this tank as a sniper scout only because of how much damage the barrel can do. However, do not use it as a sniper unless it’s like shooting fish in a barrel. Also, use its speed and elusiveness to detect the enemy team safely for most of your XP. This tank can artillery hunt as well, but the hull lock makes it hard to shoot while traveling 65km/h. This also goes for circling a larger tank. Furthermore, you will need to get on the other side of where the barrel is, turn your body and fire. Don’t use this technique to a tank with a good turret rotation speed, though. Death will come quickly if you try using this technique to a tank that has a fast-moving turret.
Moreover, the AMX ELC bis has paper-thin armor and could be penetrated by a rogue bird. The main thing to keep in mind is speed, speed, and more speed. Either outrun your enemies or turn and fight if you’re sure of a victory. Most of all, only use your repair kit(s) for a broken track so you can get back up to speed quickly. Overall, the armor is so weak you do not want to be stationary.
The main map strategy you should keep in mind is not to go down narrow paths or streets. Open areas are your friends so you can use your speed which is hard to do in narrow paths. Make sure to keep an eye out for them so you can avoid death valley as much as possible. Additionally, when on an open path and enemies are firing at you do not go in a straight line. Zig-zag and then zig-zag some more. If you are in a city map try and avoid getting rammed at all costs. Instead, go around or pull out some juke moves.
The AMX ELC bis is a fun tank only because of the speed. This is a worthless scout only because it has a hull lock and cannot circle a tank and shoot at the same time. We do not recommend this tank as a keeper.
