France will supply AMX-10RC armored vehicles to Ukraine.

French President Emmanuel Macron, in a conversation with Volodymyr Zelensky, promised to send AMX-10RC armored vehicles to Ukraine.

“The President announced his desire to strengthen the military assistance already provided to Kyiv, agreeing to the supply of AMX-10 RC light battle tanks,” the administration of the French leader said.

The AMX-10RC is a French heavy armored vehicle, also often classified as a wheeled tank.
As noted earlier in the French Ministry of Defense, Paris recently sent Ukraine six 155-millimeter towed howitzers TRF1 and two Crotale air defense systems. In addition, Kyiv received 18 Caesar artillery mounts. Macron also announced joint work with Denmark on the supply of six more such machines to Ukraine.

In turn, the French media reported that the Mistral and Milan portable anti-tank missile systems, about 60 armored personnel carriers and HDP-2A2 anti-tank mines were handed over to Ukraine. In addition to weapons, Paris provided uniforms, fuel, shells and cartridges, first aid kits and dry rations, radiation, chemical and biological protection.
