The AMX-10 RC, is an armoured tank hunter and reconnaissance vehicle which is still in use amongst the French Forces. Amphibious, it is used for reconnaissance in dangerous environment and fire support. An aggressive and pricey reconnaissance unit, the AMX-10 RC is more specialized than the similar Sagaie. While it can be used for the same roles, its higher price makes it harder to put it at risk.
Available to NATO forces, the AMX-10 RC is available after unlocking the ERC-90 Sagaie.
The AMX-10 RC's main characteristics are:
High speed. While inferior to the Sagaie and other, lighter land reconnaissance vehicles, it is still one of the fastest of its category.
Excellent Operational range with low fuel consumption.
The best canon available to reconnaissance vehicles, with great accuracy and good damage output.
MMG in addition to the canon, giving it slight AA abilities.
Taking these features into account, the AMX-10 RC has two main roles:
Aggressive reconnaissance. Its very good sights and high speed make it great at advancing early on in advantageous positions, preparing ambushes or simply early artillery correction.
Tank hunter. Its main canon's accuracy and damage make the AMX-10 RC an excellent tank hunter, able to see by himself targets entering its range where standard tank hunters are limited by their poor optics.
It can also be used to as a sniper and counter-reconnaissance, but its standard size make it hard to stay undetected.
