Durand's Devils is a great way to begin building your French force with three AMX-30 tanks and two Gazelle helicopters, it provides some fantastic models that can fill many roles in your army.
AMX-30 Tanks (x3)
The armour of the AMX-30 is the lightest of the first-generation NATO tanks, using a composite of welded and cast armoured plates, while the turret is made of one single casting. It is armed with the excellent CN 105 F1 105mm L/56 rifled gun (with similar performance to the 105mm L7 gun found on the Leopard 1). The gun is not stabilised and can fire kinetic penetrator armour piercing fin-stabilised discarding-sabot (APFSDS, fleche or arrow), high-explosive (HE), highexplosive anti-tank (HEAT), high-explosive fragmentation (HE-FRAG), incendiary, smoke and illumination rounds. It is compatible with all standard NATO 105mm munitions.
Gazelle HOT (x2)
Like the West Germans, the French also mount their HOT anti-tank guided missile on helicopters. A Patrouille d’helicopteres Antichar (Anti-tank Helicopter Patrol) consists of up to four SA342M Gazelle helicopters armed with four powerful Euromissile HOT missiles and a stabilised sight. The pilots of these light helicopters use the terrain to their advantage to get into position before launching their HOT missiles from a well-concealed ambush.
The French Army Light Aviation (ALAT) arm also field Gazelle helicopters in Attack Helicopter Patrols (Patrouille d’Hélicoptères d’Attaque). These Gazelles are armed with a M621 20mm cannon and provide protection to the anti-tank flights, suppressing enemy anti-aircraft assets.
