The AMX-10 PAC 90 is a dedicated fire support and 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 its too week to knock out a modern MBT. It was also intended as a reconnaissance and infantry support vehicle.
Aluminum armor of this fire support vehicle provides all-round protection against small arms fire and artillery shell splinters. Front armor withstands 14.5 mm heavy machine gun rounds. Vehicle has an NBC protection system.
This fire support vehicle is fitted with a TS-90 turret, armed with GIAT CS-90F-4 90 mm high velocity rifled gun. It fires HEAT, HE-FRAG, APFSDS and smoke rounds. The APFSDS round penetrates 120 mm armor plate at 1 500 m range, while the HEAT round penetrates 320 mm of armor.
Combat load consists of 30 rounds for the main gun. Twenty of them are stored in the turret and are ready-to-use. Remaining rounds are stored inside the hull.
Secondary armament consists of coaxial 7.62 mm machine gun.
The AMX-10 PAC 90 has a crew of three, including commander, gunner and driver. Hull of the AMX-10 PAC 90 is similar to that of the infantry fighting vehicle. Engine is located at the front of the hull, on the right-hand side. This fire support vehicle is powered by Hispano Suiza HS 115 multi-fuel diesel engine, developing 280 hp. The AMX-10 PAC 90 is fully amphibious. On water it is propelled by spinning its tracks. Two waterjets were proposed as an option. These were used on vehicles, operational with Marines. Maximum amphibious speed on water is 2 km/h by spinning tracks and 8 km/h with waterjets.
Elevation range: -8/+15 degrees
Engine: Hispano Suiza HS 115 (280hp)
Top speed: 65kph (road), 2/8kph (water, without and with waterjets)
NVD equipment: Yes
Where?: I'd say it'd be easily 8.0 after the AMX-10RC
