It was researched, developed and produced by GIAT Group in order to meet the requirement on replacing Panhard heavy armor vehicle by French Army. French Army has purchased 284 pieces of AMX-10RC since the 1980s. Morocco and Qatar were armed with this vehicle as well. AMX-10RC entered service in Chad Civil War, Gulf War, the Bosnian War and the War in Afghanistan where French Army joined. AMX-10RCR was a new type improved alongside the old AMX-10RC by French in 2000 where the vehicle loading equipment and steel armor were added, rear sprinkler and front breakwater were removed and the amphibious purpose was omitted. French Army completed the improvement of the entire vehicle in 2010. The new AMX-10RCR was to enter service a longer time in French Army.
