The AMX-13 T75 is a French tank destroyer, available to NATO forces.

HistoryEdit

The AMX-13 was a very unique tank and a very popular export vehicle for the French arms industry. It was the first tank of many to use an automatic loader for the main gun. To reduce weight it couldn’t be fitted with heavy armour as the vehicle had to be air portable to support paratroopers, so its designers decided to reduce the height of its silhouette with a new turret design.

Rather than the traditional design of the main gun being elevated as found on other tanks, the upper half of the AMX-13’s turret would elevate rather than the main gun, whilst the lower half of the turret was fixed to the hull. It is equipped with smoke dischargers (2) on each of the turrets.

The initial design of the vehicle began in 1946 at the end of WW2 with the first prototype completed in 1948.
