notes"The AMX-10P is a French amphibious infantry fighting vehicle. It was developed after 1965 to replace the AMX-VCI in service with the mechanized regiments of the French Army; the first prototypes were completed in 1968. Production commenced between 1972 and 1973. The AMX-10P is fully amphibious, being propelled through water at speeds of up to 7 km/h by twin waterjets. It is also fitted as standard with a trim vane and bilge pumps to assist with the flotation process. AMX-10Ps were popular with a number of Arab armies and have been operated by Iraq, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.[2] Special marine variants were also developed for Singapore and Indonesia, including a fire support model known as the AMX-10 PAC 90, which mated the AMX-10P chassis to the complete turret and 90 mm gun assembly of the Panhard ERC-90 Sagaie. AMX-10Ps share a number of common transmission and chassis components with their armored car counterpart, the AMX-10RC. AMX-10P hulls are fabricated from a welded steel or aluminum alloy[ and notable for their parallel incorporation of the driving and engine compartments. The driver is seated at the front of the vehicle and to the left. An AMX-10P's driving compartment is provided with a single hatch cover opening to the rear and three periscopes intended for observation purposes when the hatch is closed. Night vision equipment was not fitted as standard to the base production model; however, one of the three driving periscopes could be replaced with combined day/night intensification sights as needed. The troop compartment is at the rear of the hull and provided with two roof hatches. Passengers embark and debark from a ramp, which is accessed through two doors at the rear. The transmission consists of a hydraulic torque converter coupled to a gearbox with one reverse and four forward driving gears. The AMX-10P utilizes a torsion bar suspension, which supports five road wheels with the drive sprocket at the front and idler near the rear. These can be accessed from inside the hull through maintenance panels. Standard AMX-10P turrets are equipped with a GIAT M693 automatic cannon firing two different types of both high explosive ammunition and armor-piercing ammunition. More than one ammunition type may be loaded at once and fired alternatively. The high explosive rounds have a muzzle velocity of 1,050 m/s, while the latest armor-piercing round has a muzzle velocity of 1,300 m/s and is capable of penetrating 20 mm of rolled homogeneous armor at an incidence of 60°. The autocannon has a cyclic rate of fire of 740 rounds per minute, with the gunner being able to switch between semiautomatic, limited burst, or fully automatic fire as necessary."

notes"The AMX-10PC is an armored command post designed to support the operations of armored formations during combat."
name"AMX-10 HOT"
notes"This was the basic AMX-10P, with the Toucan II turret replaced by a new two-man Lancelot turret based on the TH 20, with four ready-to-launch 4,000 m range MBDA HOT missiles and a further 14 missiles carried in the rear of the hull. The crew of five consisted of the commander and gunner in the turret, two missile loaders, and the driver."
name"AMX-10 VOA"
notes"This was based on the AMX-10PC command vehicle chassis and has been designed for use by artillery observers. Its crew of four consisted of a commander, observer, radio operator, and driver. The turret, which was manned by one or two men, was provided with equipment for day and night observation and local defence."
name"AMX-10 SOA"

The radar had four operating modes: ground surveillance; acquisition and identification; angular deviation measurement; automatic tracking."
name"AMX-10P upgrade"
notes"The AMX-10P ICV upgrade included the installation of a new passive armor package to the front, sides, rear, and hull top to provide an enhanced level of survivability. Other enhancements included a modified rear power-operated ramp, new torsion bars, and reinforced transmission. The original AMX-10P was fully amphibious, propelled in the water by two water-jets mounted one either side of the hull at the rear. These and the trim vane installed at the front of the hull were removed to save weight but the vehicle retained its fording capability."
