|This page is about the French tank destroyer AMX-10M. For other versions, see AMX-10P and AMX-10RC.|
The Chasseur de char AMX-10M is a rank V French tank destroyer with a battle rating of 7.3 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update "Sons of Attila".
Survivability and armour
The armor of the AMX-10M is thick enough to protect from small caliber machine-guns from all angles. The extra structural steel plates help add an additional 4 mm of protection, allowing the AMX-10M's armor during hull-down positions to protect against 20 mm AP rounds from medium ranges and most .50 caliber rounds beginning at around 400 meters. However even when hull-down the armor wont protect the gun breach from large caliber machine-guns and 20 mms. Overall, the armor is similar to other ATGM carriers in that it shouldn't be relied upon.

Usage in battles
Describe the tactics of playing in the vehicle, the features of using vehicles in the team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view but instead give the reader food for thought. Describe the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).
Pros and cons
Summarise and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in a bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".
Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the vehicle in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the
main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using
<ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with
<references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under
=== In-game description ===, also if applicable).
Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
Links to the articles on the War Thunder Wiki that you think will be useful for the reader, for example:
- reference to the series of the vehicles;
- links to approximate analogues of other nations and research trees.
Paste links to sources and external resources, such as:
- topic on the official game forum;
- other literature.
