VAB T20

The VAB T20 or VAB T20-13 is a French APC armed with a 20mm cannon, first entering service in 1976. The base vehicle, the Véhicule de l'avant blindé, or VAB, is usually armed with a 12.7mm M2 machine gun, or a 7.62mm machine gun. However, it is a very universal chassis, able to fit missile launchers, radar, mortars, even HOT anti-tank missiles. This version in particular uses a 20mm MIT CN 20 F2, capable of firing around 720-800 rounds per minute for defense against low altitude aircraft and infantry. In many ways, it is similar to the R3 T20 FA-HS in game, however I most certainly do not wish for it to be 3.7. Regardless, this would be in the French Ground Forces Tech Tree at an undetermined battle rating.
