AML-90 (Auto Mitrailleuse Légère, or "Light Machine Gun Car") is a fast, long-ranged, and relatively cheap armoured car with excellent reconnaissance capability. Designed on a small, lightly armoured 4×4 chassis, it weighs an estimated 5.5 tonnes, and suitable for airborne deployment. AML-90 was designed for carrying out rearguard duties and substituting for the heavier tanks and armoured fighting vehicles deployed in a more linear fashion at the front. Its major feature was its DEFA low-pressure 90 mm rifled gun. Since 1959 AMLs have been marketed on up to five continents.
