"In landing operations, retreat is impossible, to surrender is as ignoble as it is foolish. above all else remember that we as attackers have the initiative, we know exactly what we are going to do, while the enemy is ignorant of our intentions and can only parry our blows. We must retain this tremendous advantage by always attacking rapidly, ruthlessly, viciously, and without rest." - General George S. Patton, Jr.

Today marks the fourth year that I have been present within this awesome gaming community. There have been ups, downs, and many users putting their talents to good use, and while I feel like I haven't contributed as much as I've wanted to, I've been pleased with the community overall. These past four years have been quite eventful, and have gone quite fast. My aim is to continue to contribute in order to improve this community, and to stay active on this site. Cheers to another four years, and keep being the awesome community that I have come to greatly enjoy. And now, the AMX-32.


Prototype main battle tank


The AMX-32 main battle tank is a further development of the commercially successful AMX-30. It's development began in 1975. The first prototype was revealed in 1982. This MBT was developed as a private venture for the export market, however it received no production orders.    The AMX-32 has improved armor protection. Composite armor was used on the frontal arc of the hull and turret. The AMX-32 has an all-welded turret, in place of the cast one on it's predecessor. Side skirts were added for better protection of the hull. It was also fitted with NBC protection and automatic fire suppression systems.


   The AMX-32 is armed with a non-stabilized 105-mm rifled gun, similar to that of the AMX-30. It was also offered with new 120-mm smoothbore gun. Both guns fire standard NATO 105-mm or 120-mm rounds respectively. Variant with a 120-mm gun can carry a total of 38 rounds.


   The AMX-32 was fitted with new COTAS fire control system. It consists of ballistic computer, passive observation and sighting equipment and laser rangefinder. The main drawback of this main battle tank was a lack of gun stabilization equipment and it could not fire accurately on the move. Still it was claimed that the AMX-32 has a 90% hit probability against stationary target in 2 000 m range in day or night conditions.


   Secondary armament consists of 20-mm cannon with independent elevation and a roof-mounted 7.62-mm machine gun.


   The AMX-32 could be powered either by the Hispano-Suiza HS-110 multi-fuel diesel engine of the AMX-30 MBT, developing 720 hp, or uprated HS-110-S2 unit, fitted on improved AMX-30B2 and developing 780 hp. Chassis of the AMX-32 is very similar to that of the AMX-30 with few minor improvements. Vehicle was fitted with a deep wading kit and could ford water obstacles up to 4 meters deep.
