AMX-50 120 mm
During the years 1949-1958, three versions of the chassis were created, which were variously modified. The first is sometimes referred to in foreign literature as AMX-50A and was designed for a lighter type of swinging tower equipped with a 100 mm cannon. The second and the third, which often bears the designation AMX-50B, are associated with a heavier swinging tower equipped with a 120 mm cannon. In contrast, the French website "Char et blindes francais" fundamentally distinguish versions of prototypes according to the year of origin and armament used.

Design office Ateliers de construction d'Issy les Moulineaux (AMX) began work on the AMX-50 at the end of 1945. Development was based on knowledge of the construction of German medium and heavy tanks. The tank project was submitted to the army for consideration in 1946. The vehicle was to be comparable to the Soviet IS series tanks. The project for modernization was created in 1951. In the second version of the prototype made in 1953, the main weapon became a long-barreled cannon caliber 120 mm. The reinforced swinging tower consisted of two parts. Lower rotating base and upper swinging part. This upper part was equipped with an enlarged stern protrusion, which formed a counterweight to the weapon carried. About three prototype tanks were produced, their tests took place in the years 1953 to 1958. Thanks to the purchase of a cheaper North American tank M47 Patton was not introduced into service or any of the versions of the AMX-50 tank .

Distinctive features of the 1953 prototype
- the swinging tower of the original design for the 120 mm cannon probably had two covers for flue gas extraction openings located in the right rear part of the tower
- The prototype had a one-piece frontal armor plate in front of the driver
- The fuselage of the engine part was a few centimeters higher than the combat part
- the auxiliary guide rollers of the chassis were placed in the plane
- two engine exhausts are located at the rear of the so-called German style

Distinctive features of the modernized prototype from 1955 ("Surblindé" - reinforced armor)
- the prototype had in front of the driver a front armor plate welded from two obliquely placed armor plates
- the fuselage of the combat and engine parts was without height difference, the upper armor plate was straight
- the auxiliary guide rollers of the chassis were placed in the plane
- the two engine exhausts are probably led to the rear by the so-called German style
- thanks to the reinforcement of the armor, the weight of the vehicle reached 60 Mg

Distinctive features of the last modernization of the 1958 prototype ("Surbaissé" - reduced)
- the swinging tower of the new type has a moved suction opening near the cannon in the front part of the tower ceiling
- The prototype had a shaped one-piece armor shaped in front of the driver
- connection of the front armor to the armor plates of the fuselage connected by welding
- hull and running gear changed
- the auxiliary guide rollers and the chassis tensioning wheel were placed higher at the front approach part
