[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good top speed
  • Decent acceleration
  • Can perform drive-by's
  • Low profile
  • Good camouflage value


Cons:


  • High dispersion while turning
  • Asymmetrical gun arc, a strange thing to get used to


Performance

As of 8.6, this remains the only tier 6 artillery that retains a semblance of mobility, having a good acceleration and excellent top speed. To add to this, the camouflage values of this artillery is very good, having a low profile. These combined make the AMX 13 a stealthy, easy to relocate SPG that can utilize its mobility to set up ambush shots around corners with its gun arc, and can move to better firing lines quickly to get shots on tanks that think they are safe.

Additionally, for its tier its damage and penetration is huge - hitting tier 4 tanks with a gun that can do 950 damage is pure overkill. Even the tier 6 tanks that it's paired with get hit hard - the TD's, low armored mediums and the M6 all can easily be one shotted by this SPG, even when HE is loaded.

Although the aim time and reload has received a nerf from the values prior to 8.6, the fully aimed accuracy remains quite good and there will be no problems hitting your targets. The asymmetrical gun arc has a bit of a learning curve, but for standard use the angle that you are given to shoot from is quite generous, and there is a fair margin for turning the gun without having to turn the tank. Make sure you're always angling your SPG to the left a bit, as this will maximize the use of your gun arc.

Due to all of this, the AMX is considered the best tier 6 artillery, possibly the best tier 6. With damage at 950, it can one shot any tier 6 or lower tank with no issues. It is lethal in any match it faces, so you are almost unbeatable in the AMX 13 F3.

Surprisingly, due to its good accuracy and wide gun arc, it performs better in TD mode than arty mode. Simply find a target, and fire. If you hit their sides or rear, it is a guaranteed kill.


Early Research

  • The Baudouin 6F 11 SRY Engine and SCR 528F Radio carry over from the AMX 13 105 AM mle. 50. Mount them immediately.
  • Next, research the AMX 13 F3 AM bis Suspension.
  • Finally, research the Canon de 155 mm de 33 calibres Gun.

Historical Info

AMX 13 F3, or the Canon de 155 mm Mle F3 Automoteur (Cn-155-F3-Am) was a 155 mm SPG developed in the early 1950s by the French Army to replace their aging American M41 Gorilla 155mm self-propelled guns. The Mk F3 is the smallest and lightest 155 mm motorized gun carriage ever produced. Due to its size and low cost it has found considerable success on the export market. Constructed on a modified AMX-13 light tank chassis, the Mk F3 is novel in incorporating room inside for only two of the eight required crewmen (the others riding in support vehicles). This allowed the 155 mm gun to be placed on a smaller and more mobile chassis than that employed by other armies, but also exposed the crew members to arms fire and splinters.

Backround

AMX 13 F3 in a deployed position

In the early 1950s the French Army desired to replace their aging American M41 howitzers with an indigenous design, based on the AMX-13 light tank chassis. Result of these efforts was the Mk F3 that entered production in the early 1960s. Its low cost and light weight made it a very popular weapon system on the export market. It was exported to a number of South American and Middle Eastern countries, and remained in production until the early 1980s, long after the French Army had themselves converted to the fully enclosed GCT 155mm self-propelled artillery system.

Design features

The Mk F3 is essentially a modified AMX-13 light tank chassis with the rear idler removed and the hull modified to accept a 155 mm cannon and its recoil, elevating and traversing mechanisms, including two rear spades which reversed into the ground to give added stability when firing. The 155 mm gun was designed by the Atelier de Construction de Tarbes (ATS), and the chassis by the Atelier de Construction Roanne (ARE). Integration of the gun with the chassis and all firing trials were undertaken by the Etablissement d'Etudes et de Fabrications d'Armement de Bourges (EFAB). Because the ARE was tooling up for production of the AMX-30 main battle tank, production of the whole AMX-13 tank family, including the F3 155 mm self-propelled gun, was transferred to Mécanique Creusot-Loire.

The F3 fired the standard 155 mm high-explosive projectile, and is also capable of firing the smoke, illumination and rocket-assisted rounds. The effective range is 20,050 m with 43.75 kg HE rounds. The hull of the Mk F3 is of all-welded steel armor measuring 10 to 20 mm, providing the two occupants with protection from small arms fire and shell splinters. The layout is conventional, with the driver's compartment at the front on the left, engine compartment to the right and the 155 mm gun above at the rear. A splashboard is mounted at the front of the hull to stop water from rushing up the glacis plate when the vehicle is fording streams.
AMX 13 F3 designed to replace M41 in French army service
A replacement road wheel is often carried on the glacis plate. The driver has a single-piece hatch that opens to the left, and is provided with three daylight periscopes, the center one of which is replaceable by an image intensification (or thermal) periscope for night driving. The commander is seated behind the driver and has a two-piece hatch that opens to either side. The commander is also provided with three daylight periscopes.

The torsion bar suspension consists of five single rubber-tyred road wheels with the drive sprocket at the front and the fifth roadwheel acting as the idler. There are three track-return rollers. The first and last road wheel stations have hydraulic shock-absorbers. The steel tracks can be fitted with rubber pads if required. Stowage containers are provided along each side of the upper part of the hull. Standard equipment includes a loudspeaker and a cable reel with 400 m of cable.

Design flaws

AMX 13 F3, smallest 155mm SPG ever built

Weaknesses to the Mk F3 design included a lack of nuclear-biological-chemical (NBC) protection for its crew. It also could accommodate only two of the eight crew members needed to operate the weapons system. The remaining six crew members and 25 rounds of ammunition travel in support vehicles, normally AMX-VCIs. If necessary, the additional crew members can travel on the upper deck of the vehicle, but in all cases the crew members must remain outside the vehicle and exposed to arms fire.

Production

A total of around 600 veichles was produced until the late eightees, with the last 10 units delivered to Morocco as late as 1997. Besides the French army, the system was widly exported and used by the armies of Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Peru, Venezuela and Qatar.
