The AMX-30B2 Brenus is a Tier 4 progression Main Battle Tank under Francine De Laroche's dealership.

History[]

Class: Main Battle Tank
Developed: 1979-1981
Service: 1981-2011 (France)
Vehicles Built: 659
Operators: Cyprus, Qatar, formerly France and several others

The AMX-30B2 is an improved version of the AMX-30B Main Battle Tank, featuring a new Fire Control System, an upgraded engine, improved suspension and new APFSDS ammunition. It was the final mass-produced version of the AMX-30 and remained in service in France until its replacement by Leclerc. In 1998, roughly two battalions worth of AMX-30B2 tanks were upgraded with fittings for the new Brenus ERA by GIAT in order to provide improved protection for the units that would be the first to get into serious battles.

Vehicle Traits[]

  • Armored: This vehicle's armor can withstand a lot of punishment, allowing it to survive even serious firefights.
  • Off-Road Capability: This vehicle has increased maneuverability in rough terrain and on soft surfaces that would normally slow a tank down.
  • Protected Modules: This vehicle's internal components take less damage, making them harder to destroy.
  • Extra Autocannon: This vehicle is armed with a coaxial autocannon, providing extra firepower against light targets.
  • Improved Reverse: This vehicle can drive backwards much faster than other vehicles can.
  • Engine Boost: This vehicle's engine rev limiter can be overridden to significantly increase speed and acceleration for a short period of time.
