Light Tank: ELC AMX

ELC AMX

In 1956, the French Ministry of Defense launched the ELC (Engin Leger de Combat) project. The aim was to create a light tank for airborne transport. The ELС AMX prototype featured a low silhouette and a turret placement of both crew members. The vehicle never saw mass production, nor entered service.

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