Supertest: ELC EVEN 90

ELC EVEN 90 (LT-8, France, autoloader, Premium)

This tank will be added to the game files in the 9.21 WoT update. The tank went on supertest in September 2017, and has now attained the final external form with some modified specifications.

It’s a rare sight, being an autoloader light premium without WG League paint on it. Also the second smallest tank in the game (!)

A series of machines developed by BRUNON-VALETTE under the ELC (Engin Leger de Combat) project in the second half of the fifties. The aim was to create a series of light combat vehicles that could be transported by air. The machine was small in size and high in mobility. After the decision to produce 10 serial prototypes with various armaments that were actively tested, work on the ELC EVEN 90 was discontinued.

Needless to say, there are the updated statistics:

    1. Those stats are probably with camo added, since 38% is too ludicrous. Most likely it’s real camo is 19%. We’ve had tanks leaked with outrageous camo values before, which turned out to be wrong.

  1. That small? Camo rating must be insane. Only thing I don’t like about it s the DPM. But at least it has a clip mag. So it’s not as useless as the SP 1C in a 1 on 1 with more or less the same dpm.


      1. 4, actually. And AFAIK two of them would actually be outside of the vehicle since the gun is basically slapped on top and needs to be operated from behind.

    1. Incase you didn’t know, 175pen is actually decent, it’s tied 3rd best after “Black dog”, WZ-132 and HWK 12.
      Sure gold pen is a bit lacking, but lights are not made to shoot at frontal armor.


    2. Bat Chat 12t has 170 base pen and only 170 alpha, giving it 680 burst damage. This ELC has 175 pen and 660 burst dmg and it can deliver it in 4,6 second against Bat Chat’s 6 seconds. ELC also has more accurate gun and -9 gun depression, 3 degrees better than Bat Chat.

      Not too bad, especially considering it’s premium.


      1. Bc12t is one of the worst T8 light tanks, if it’s better than the Bc12t it doesn’t mean much….
        1300 DPM on a tier 8 tank is inexcusable.


  2. i was really hyped to get this tank until they made those ugly changes… why 3 crew members!?!? now i cant use the 7-8 skills ELC crew i have 😦 must find another crew member or just use B-C one that only has 4 😦 also the DPM was balanced why nerfing it wtf the dmg and clip size is now ugly

  3. Do we really need an autoloader variant of the UE 57, with a 90mm gun and a turret?

    I mean, do we really? Yes? Alright, fine, if it shows up, I might buy one, in case I need something to annoy people with when my Bat chat 12 is out of commission.

    900 HP on a Tier 8 is the only real drawback, though…has the lowest health out of Tier 8 tanks, and that includes the 990 HP on the SU-101, so can be easily one-shot by a Japanese super-heavy or KV-2…assuming it’s spotted.


  4. So wait? They gave it 3 crew member finally but made the rest of the stats so detrimental that the thing has no become obsolete?

    Why can’t WG ever get balancing right? It only needed 3 crew members and a DPM increase to 1800, nothing more.


  5. A side side by with an AMX ELC would be great. Since people hoping to relive the pre-nerf ELC days will probably be first in line for this.
