This vehicle was exchanged with the Musée des Blindés for a Saracen personnel carrier. It is the Command Post version of the AMX VTT, and is complete with tools, 18 sights, internal communications, headsets and an AN-VRC 16-18 radio post. It was transported by H.M.S. Aghelia from Ouistreham to Marchwood on 21 July 1987. Also included in the exchange were an AA-10 missile, a manpack radio and a Hotchkiss Jeep.
This AMX was on display in the Tamiya Hall for some time but was moved into storage in November 2011. It is believed to be in running order.
