Available to NATO forces, the AMX AuF1 is the French self-propelled artillery.

The GCT 155mm AuF1 is based on the AMX-30 main battle tank chassis and equipped with a 155mm 39-caliber gun with an auto-loading system, giving a rate of fire of 8 rounds per minute, and a sustained rate of fire of 6 rounds per minute.

It is also equipped with a roof-mounted 12.7mm anti-aircraft gun. The AuF1 has an effective range of 23,500 meters firing conventional rounds and 28,000 meters using Rocket Assisted Projectiles.

HistoryEdit

Though the French Mk 3 155mm would remain in production through the 1980s, by the early 1970s the French Army realized there was an urgent need for its replacement. The Mk. 3 155mm lacked an automatic loading system, but more importantly it lacked nuclear-biological-chemical protection for its crew, and could carry only two of the four crew members needed to operate it (the remaining two having to be transported in support vehicles). Development of the GCT 155mm began in the early 1970s, and the first production version, known as the AUF1, was introduced in 1977.

The AuF1 is a SPG (self propelled gun) artillery unit is based upon the hull of AMX-30 MBT (main battle tank) but incorporating a new much larger turret to accommodate a 155mm/39-caliber gun with automatic loading system along with 42 rounds of ammunition.

Although it was conceived and designed to meet a French Army requirement due to an exclusive deal it was actually Saudi Arabia who received the first units with deliveries of 51 units beginning in 1978.

OverviewEdit

The AMX AuF1 boasts the fastest firing rate amongst all the heavy artillery and is the most accurate right by the Czechoslovakian Dana. Unlike the Dana though the AuF1 is slower but better armored, making it foolish to try to counter barrage it, in which case if it chooses to return fire it will likely destroy or severely damage its assailant with its firepower, the only average stat is its HE due to the 155mm cannon. It certainly is amongst the best artillery provided in WG:EE and WG:AL, providing some serious long range punch for French oriented decks, its only real draw back being its price.
