The AMX-40 is a Tier 5 progression Main Battle Tank under Francine De Laroche's dealership.

History[]

Class: Main Battle Tank (Prototype)
Developed: 1981-1983
Service: N/A
Vehicles Built: 3
Operators: N/A

The AMX-40 was the first among the third generation French Main Battle Tanks built specifically for export purposes. While it was light, agile and powerfully armed, this Main Battle Tank offered its crew relatively little protection and came at a wrong time, when all the potential customers (the vehicle was mostly intended for Arab countries) already chose their MBTs. Despite heavy marketing since 1983, it remained a prototype only and was quietly terminated in 1990 as obsolete. However, its development provided the GIAT engineers with plenty of experience, which would then be used during the Leclerc development.

Vehicle Traits[]

  • Extra Autocannon: This vehicle is armed with a coaxial autocannon, providing extra firepower against light targets.
  • Dozer Blade: This vehicle's dozer blade increases its ramming damage and grants additional hull protection.
  • Improved Reverse: This vehicle can drive backwards much faster than other vehicles can.

This MBT's front is protected by composite armor. Composite armor consists of combined layers of steel and other material and offers excellent protection against HEAT shells and ATGMs. Its steel sides and rear are considerably more vulnerable.
