The AMX-10RC is a rank VI French light tank with a battle rating of 8.0 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.85 "Supersonic".

General info

Survivability and armour

The AMX-10 is considered a light tank, it has minimal armour protection. Some of the areas of this tank can survive up to a 20 mm autocannon, but can't survive anything more than that. The crew members are grouped very close together, meaning that APFSDS at this battle rating will take them out with ease. Even if that doesn't destroy the tank, there are ammunition racks stored everywhere, which can be detonated by spalling.

The AMX-10RC has decent mobility when not upgraded. When upgraded, it can compete with the Centauro and other light tanks it might encounter.

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


  • 105 mm gun is on par with the medium tanks of its rank
  • Available with a decent HEAT and is the first vehicle to unlock APFSDS rounds together with the T95E1
  • Good top speed similar to one of a light tank, great for scouting the enemy team
  • Access to thermal optics at a lower battle rating than most nations, great for spotting concealed enemies
  • Immune to heavy machine guns to the front and beyond 100 meters to the sides
  • Access to the scouting ability, great for a support role
  • Hydropneumatic suspension, helps manage those ridgelines to expose as little of the vehicle as possible


  • Thin armour much as with most armoured cars, very vulnerable to SPAAGs, aircraft, tanks with autocannons and high calibre shells, the latter can and will cause a hull break, instantly destroying the vehicle
  • Gun is not stabilized, it will take a long time for the gun to settle to make a sniper shot
  • Very vulnerable in a city or other close quarters maps, as well as when caught in the open while moving
  • Lack of any heavier machine gun than 7.62 mm; if using APFSDS primarily, that means it will often struggle when facing lightly armoured targets
  • Poor acceleration and offroad capabilities; it will very rarely if at all reach its top speed in realistic and simulator battles


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: 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).
