Developed by Batignolles-Châtillon at the request of the Egyptian Armed Forces, this tank represented a major modernization of the M4 Sherman. The first vehicles manufactured featured the hull and chassis of the M4A1 and the FL 10 turret of the AMX 13. However, the majority of vehicles used the hull and the chassis of the M4A4. A total of 50 vehicles were manufactured and saw service in the Egyptian Armed Forces until the mid-1960s. Later, the remaining operational tanks were sent to the 20th Division of the Palestine Liberation Organization in the Gaza Strip.
