Description

The AMX-10 PAC 90 is a dedicated fire support and anti-tank variant of the AMX-10P infantry fighting vehicle. It's production commenced in 1979. This vehicle is in service with France, Brazil and possibly some other countries.
This fire support vehicle was designed to operate alongside the main battle tanks and infantry fighting vehicles. At the time of it's introduction it was capable of taking anti-tank combat, however by current standards it's armament it's too week to knock out a modern MBT. It was also intended as a reconnaissance and infantry support vehicle.
Aluminum armor of this fire support vehicle provides all-round protection against small arms fire and artillery shell splinters. Front armor withstands 14.5 mm heavy machine gun rounds. Vehicle has an NBC protection system.

Combat load consists of 30 rounds for the main gun. Twenty of them are stored in the turret and are ready-to-use. Remaining rounds are stored inside the hull.
Secondary armament consists of coaxial 7.62-mm machine gun.
The AMX-10 PAC 90 has a crew of three. Also it provides accommodation for four troops at the rear of the hull. These troops act as protection or reconnaissance team. These four troops dismount via the rear doors.
Hull of the AMX-10 PAC 90 is similar to that of the infantry fighting vehicle. Engine is located at the front of the hull, on the right-hand side. This fire support vehicle is powered by Hispano Suiza HS 115 multi-fuel diesel engine, developing 280 hp. The AMX-10 PAC 90 is fully amphibious. On water it is propelled by spinning it's tracks.
