SPG: Bat.-Châtillon 155 55

Bat.-Châtillon 155 55

A 155-mm SPG design project developed in 1955. The vehicle was intended to be manufactured on the chassis of the U.S. M47 medium tank, which was exported to France. However, the chassis of the French medium tank Batignolles-Chatillon 25t was preferred over other variants. The initial version existed only in blueprints.

Characteristics for a vehicle with basic configuration and a crew with 100% qualification.
