The AMX-30 was developed in parallel with the German Leopard 1 MBT, both to satisfy a cooperative development program with Germany and Italy. Disagreement on the main gun and timescales led to the dissolution of the partnership, and the Leopard and AMX-30 were produced by the different nations. It was preceded by the ARL44, an interim tank based on the Char B running gear, and the AMX50, which used an oscillating turret.
The AMX-30 relies on agility and small size to survive on the battlefield, as its armour is relatively thin. Its 105mm gun is not compatible with the NATO standard British L7 105mm gun, and relies mainly on an advanced hollow-charge projectile (Obus G) to defeat armour.

Two zip files are provided. The first contains a hollow complete hull, and a solid turret with gun, suitable for printing on resin printers. The second provides the main hull, two track assemblies, the turret and separate main gun for printing on FDM printers. The track assemblies are perhaps best printed flat i.e. with the side facing the hull on the bed of the printer. Some care will be needed to take out the supports, but this is not too difficult. The hull bottom is reasonably detailed, so a variety of print orientation may need to be examined to determine the most suitable for the specific use of the resultant model.
