notes"Known as a "Tank Destroyer," The AMX-10 PAC 90 is dedicated fire support and an anti-tank variant of the AMX-10P infantry fighting vehicle. Its 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 its introduction, it was capable of taking anti-tank combat, however by current standards, its armament is too weak to knock out a modern MBT. It was also intended as a reconnaissance and infantry support vehicle. The aluminum armor of this fire support vehicle provides all-around protection against small arms fire and artillery shell splinters. Front armor withstands 14.5 mm heavy machine gun rounds. The vehicle has an NBC protection system."

notes"The AMX-10P is also used to perform as a battlefield ambulance. It is based on the same hull as the AMX-10P to ensure that it can perform alongside other armoured formations."
name"AMX-10PC"
notes"The AMX-10PC is an armoured command post designed to support the operations of armoured 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"
notes"The AMX-10 SOA was used for battlefield observation and artillery fire-control. It was essentially an AMX-10P with its Toucan II turret replaced by a new two-man turret armed with an externally-mounted 7.62 mm MG on the right side."
name"AMX-10 SAF"

notes"This had no turret and was fitted with a roof-mounted radar for field artillery fire (RATAC) pulse Doppler radar scanner. The vehicle had a crew of five: commander; radar operator; assistant radar operator; radio operator; driver. 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 armour 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."
