The AMX-10RC/RCR was built with a 105mm cannon, but the wheeled AMX-10R derivative of the tracked AMX-10P had more variants, of which only the 105mm tank destroyer entered service.

http://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com/coldw ... RC-RCR.php Link for the variants of AMX-10R

AMX-10RP : This seem to had the same turret with the AMX-10P
AMX-10RTT : This seem to had 2 variants, one with the Dragar turret (and GIAT M811 25mm cannon) and the other had a turret with a 0.5" machine gun (like the AMX-10P Marines)
AMX-10RAA : SPAAG with a SAMM designed turret (twin 30mm cannons)
AMX-10RAC : Same turret with the AMX-10 PAC 90

Only available sources found from me are these:

Does anyone has better sources for the AMX-10R family variants ? (NOT the AMX-10RC, we have this in our archive). If yes, please post here.

Here is a blueprint with dimensions for the AMX-10RAA turret:

For moderators: Posted here, but this is referred to FD-scale, so please move this thread if needed.

Adding the GIAT AMX-10RP.

From sources found and posted I came up with this, it seems that the -RP was simply a wheeled derivative of tracked AMX-10P, sharing the TOUCAN turret with the GIAT M693 cannon. It is very possible for the production vehicles to have the wheel covers of -RC, although the prototype in photos seem to have wider wheels and no covers.
