Like the Leopard 1, the AMX-30B2 is rather poorly armored. The advancement of HEAT shells forced tank designers to give preference to agility and maneuverability over protection. However, in the early 1990s thin armor presented a major problem, and the tank received fittings for ERA kits.

History[edit | edit source]

Class: Main Battle Tank
Developed: 1998
Service: 1998-2011
Vehicles Built: cca 100
Operators: France

The AMX-30B2 is an improved version of the AMX-30B Main Battle Tank, featuring a new Fire Control System, an upgraded engine, improved suspension and new APFSDS ammunition. It was the final mass-produced version of the AMX-30 and remained in service in France until its replacement by Leclerc. In 1998, roughly two battalions worth of AMX-30B2 tanks were upgraded with fittings for the new Brenus ERA by GIAT in order to provide improved protection for the units that would be the first to get into serious battles.
