Features[edit | edit source]

  • High spot and rof: had high spotting ranges and rate of fire.
  • HESH: can even penetrate armor with large hit angles.
  • Waterproof: this vehicle can remain longer under water.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Lightly armored and mobile, the ERC-90 F4 offers excellent firepower on a fast chassis. With excellent gun depression, reload, and accuracy, the ERC-90 F4 can fight at long range and punish unsuspecting targets with a fusillade of rapid, accurate fire. Featuring excellent mobility, the ERC-90 F4 can easily maneuver around the battlefield, using its camouflage to stay hidden. But this mobility comes at the cost of protection, with the ERC-90 F4 having virtually zero effective armor against incoming fire.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Excellent accuracy
  • High mobility
  • High camo rating
  • Excellent gun depression

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Negligible armor
  • Large target

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

As a platform designed around firepower and mobility, the upgrades researched should reflect this. Upgrading to the Improved Laser Rangefinder, Improved Storage, and various ammunition upgrades will offer a much more varied arsenal, and upgrading to the XD3T Diesel Engine will boost the already stellar mobility.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Advanced Fire Control
  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Improved Gun Breech

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Viktor Kirsanov, for rate of fire and aim speed
  • Driver: Smooth Ride, Off Road Driving
  • Gunner: Quick Draw, Sharpshooter
  • Loader: Rapid Fire, Preparation/Explosive Shells

History[edit | edit source]

Class: Fire Support Vehicle
Developed: 1975
Service: 1980+
Vehicles Built: 411
Operators: France, Argentine, Mexico, Ivory Coast, Chad, Gabon, Iraq, Nigeria

The ERC 90 (also known as “Sagaie”) is a French heavily armed reconnaissance vehicle and tank destroyer, named after a type of African spear. It was developed by Panhard specifically for export, although France did purchase 192 in the 1980s because it was light, easily transportable and therefore ideal for the units expected to be deployed in France's former colonies, giving them the firepower to knock out older Soviet T-54 and T-55 tanks often used in Africa.
