Nexter AMX tanks

The Indonesian Army bought 175 AMX-13/75, 130 AMX-13/105, 32 AMX-VCI, and 10 AMX-13 PDP in the early 1960s. These were designed by the company Atelier de Construction d'Issy-les-Moulineaux, however Nexter holds the maintenance and upgrade rights now. AMX tanks were used in the massacres of Indonesian ‘communists’ during 1965-6, in the invasion of East Timor in 1975, against the separatist movement in Aceh during the nineties, and in the invasion of West Papua, Operation Trikora in the sixties. The AMX series are still present and in use in West Papua today.
