Wheels III.

This is coolbert:

à la manière des Français 

Here with some images of currently inventoried and in-use French wheeled armor.

An AMX10-RC. That is a 105 mm gun. NOT a tank. Weighs only 15 tons.

A VAB. Armored personnel carrier. Able to carry a squad of ten men.

An ERC 90. Three man crew with 90 mm gun.

A VBCI. An infantry fighting vehicle. Carries an infantry squad and armed with a 25 mm cannon.

Vehicles such as the AMX10-RC not a replacement in totality for the main battle tank. Wheeled armor that mission primarily that of reconnaissance, scouting, screening.
