The AMX-13 is a light tank from France that is originally manufactured by GIAT Industries (Nexter now). It is designed by the Atelier de Construction d’Issy-les-Moulineaux to be the weight of 13 tons, from which it got its name AMX-13, and it has been in service since 1952.

The AMX-13 is fitted with a 75 mm oscillating turret and a coaxially mounted 7.62 mm machine gun. Despite its powerful armament, its protection is not on the same level, with only the frontal armor having thick reinforced 40 mm steel sheets. The vehicle contains a crew of three and has a SOFAM Model 8Gxb 8-cylinder water-cooled petrol engine with 250 horsepower, reaching a maximum speed of 60 km/h (37 mph).

This vehicle blueprint comes with both desert and forest textures, is fully rigged, and includes animated wheels, hatches, and cannon. A destructible state model is included with damaged geometry, textures, fire and smoke FX. This asset also includes weapon firing and dust FX from the tracks when driving.

The asset is set up as a traditional Unreal vehicle with an interior but can be modified as needed to suit your purpose. It is drivable with proper physics performance by using Epic Games’ Chaos Vehicles plugin. The Chaos Vehicles plugin must be enabled for vehicle movement to work. Also, the environmental clouds are utilizing the Volumetrics plugin from Epic Games and the scene uses Lumen.

A sample showcase/demo Blueprint has been included with an environment map and User Interface (UI). When you “Play” the map, the UI includes camera presets, sliders, and buttons to demonstrate the key functionalities of the vehicle.


Disclaimer: This asset uses the Volumetrics plugin and the Chaos Vehicles system plugin from Epic Games for demonstration purposes only. The vehicle asset can be used and modified without this plugin enabled in your personal projects.

The Volumetrics plugin is used for the clouds in the scene by utilizing the volume creation and rendering tools therein. The Chaos Vehicles system plugin allows users to use vehicle physics simulations to make realistic vehicle movement.

All rights of the Volumetrics plugin and the Chaos Vehicles system plugin are the exclusive property of Epic Games. Vigilante does make any warranties, inferred or implied, regarding the use of Epic’s plugins.

  1. Thanks for the models, all are great for populating or learning as I am a simple hobbyist learning unreal engine. I have been spending a lot of time using a top view 2d engine but need to do something in 3d for a change.
