This was the first of the prototypes of the AMX-50, an experimental heavy tank fitted with an oscillating turret. It is fitted with a 90mm gun, and has a number of shell holes in its turret. A 1000 hp engine for it was presented to the museum by the German Motoren und Turbinen Union (MTU) company in 1983/4.
