The AMX-50 Foch was an experimental tank destroyer developed as part of the French attempt to manufacture a powerful medium tank for the French Army.
It was not adopted for production and only one was made.
The AMX-50 was developed immediately after World War II to give the French army a powerful new medium tank.
The first AMX-50 was armed with a 90mm cannon which was soon upgraded to 100mm.
The need for an even larger main gun to counter Russian heavy tanks led to development of the AMX-50 Foch equipped with a 120mm cannon.
Only one was made because a new version of the AMX-50 with a turret mounted 120mm canon was constructed, making the tank destroyer version redundant.
Eventually the entire AMX-50 project was abandoned in favour of the lighter and more mobile AMX-30 MBT.
This model represents the only AMX-50 Foch in 1952.
