GoHaRu.com provides a new article, dedicated to another upcoming French vehicle AMX-13/90. Once again our players will read about the historical background and general characteristics of this steel beast.
"Design of this tank started in 1946 in a state-run enterprise scheme near Issy-les-Moulineaux. The First prototype was assembled two years later. Production started in 1952 in Rouen (ARE association). At one time a total of 45 tanks were produced per month. At the beginning of the ‘60s production of the AMX-13 was handed over to "Creso Loire" company, as Rouen facility was switched over to production of the AMX-30. Basic chassis of the light tank was used in production of various tanks, including the armored infantry vehicle AMX VCI, 105mm self-propelled howitzer, 155mm self-propelled gun Mk F3 and double-barreled anti-aircraft self-propelled gun OCA, each of them having special features in different modules."
