AMX-10 PAC-90

Notes: This is a fire support variant of the AMX-10P, used by Indonesia. There is a hatch on the left front deck for the driver, hatches on the turret for the commander and gunner, and a large drop ramp in the rear.

Notes: Small amounts of this vehicle were diverted from shipments to Indonesia when the Twilight War began, and used by France and Belgium.

AMX-13

Notes: Production of the first examples of this vehicle began in 1952; since then, the AMX-13 has been steadily upgraded and improved to try to keep it useful, relevant, and attractive on the world market. Production stopped in 1985, but upgrades packages continued to be developed after that time, and over 7700 were manufactured. The base chassis is conventional, but the turret is unusual, being an oscillating turret, where the top and bottom half are hinged, and the top half rocks back and forth to provide elevation for the main gun and coaxial armament. In addition, the main gun is fed by an autoloader, and ammunition supplied by two revolving magazines at the rear of the turret, each holding 6 rounds. Empty shell cases are ejected automatically outside the turret after firing. This feature, while giving a good fire rate, also means that when the ammunition in those magazines is exhausted, they must be manually refilled, with the crew getting outside of the armor to do so. It also limits the amount of available ammunition. One way used to increase the firepower (and antiarmor range of earlier versions) was to mount ATGM launchers on either side of the turret; early versions with these launchers used SS-11 missiles, and later versions used HOT missiles. The driverís hatch is in the front center of the vehicle, with a commanderís hatch on the turret deck.

AMX RATAC

Notes: This is a version of the AMX VCI armored personnel carrier, with a ground surveillance radar set mounted on the roof of the passenger compartment. Inside the compartment is a management computer, controls for the radar, radios, and a datalink set. The radar has a range of 20 km against vehicles and structures and 15 km against personnel and explosions. The French army transferred their RATAC radars to VAB vehicles in the mid 1970s, but the AMX RATAC was still being used by Ecuador and Morocco by 2004.

Hotchkiss Light Tracked Vehicles

Notes: These small tracked scout vehicles were in service with the West German Army until the mid-1980s. They were designed for the French Army to operate with AMX-13s, but the French Army passed on them and the West Germans picked them up. Some of them passed into reserve units, but most of them were scrapped or used as range targets.

The base vehicle is the SPz 11-2. This is a small boxy hull with a well-sloped front end that bears a slight resemblance to the US M-114 Lynx. The driver is on the front left, with an overhead hatch. It has a small turret with a 20mm Rh-202 autocannon. The turret is behind the driver, offset to the left, and has a hatch. There are three hatches on the roof, one to the right of the turret and two on the rear deck. There are two doors in the rear of the hull.

The SPz 22-2 is a command vehicle, and does not have a turret. It is fitted with three radios, and the right front hatch on the roof has a pintle mount for a machinegun. The commander has a periscope with magnification of x4 (wide field) or x15 (narrow field); this periscope may be removed and placed on a tripod sight that is provided with the vehicle.

The SPz 51-2 is a light mortar carrier. In this role, the roof is raised slightly, and an 81mm mortar is mounted in the rear with large overhead hatches in the roof for firing. The rear of the hull has one large door instead of two smaller ones.

The SPz 2-2 is an armored ambulance. The vehicle has basic medical supplies and two stretchers. Two more stretcher patients may be carried in racks on the roof.

Some of the mortar carrier versions were converted into ground surveillance radar carriers and designated Radarpanzer kurz 1s. This radar has a range of 20 km.
