The hull of the AMX 10P is made of all-welded aluminum.
The driver's compartment is at the front of the vehicle on the left.
The engine compartment is to his right.
The troop compartment is at the rear of the hull.
In front of the driver are three periscopes.
Air inlet and outlet louvers are on top of the hull, and the exhaust outlet is in the right side of the hull.
The complete powerpack can be replaced in two hours.
In the center, offset slightly to the left, is a two-man Toucan II turret.
The gunner sits on the left and commander on the right. Both their hatch covers open to either side.
The commander has a telescopic sight, a direct anti-aircraft sight, and a direct-fire external sight.
The gunner has a periscope with various possible sight combinations.
The commander and gunner also have seven periscopes for all-around view.
The AMX-10P is fully amphibious, but can be delivered without this capability.
It is propelled by two water jets on either side of the ramp.
Bilge pumps are in the engine and troop compartments.
A trim vane is erected at the front, and stowed on the glacis plate when not in use.
Standard equipment includes a heater and NBC system on the right side.
- Fully tracked.
- Five road wheels and three return rollers.
- Low silhouette.

- Trim vane on the front slope for amphibious operations.
A French SNPE explosive reactive armor (ERA) kit and others are available for use on the AMX-10P. However, during dismounted troop
movement, ERA would be a hazard. Thus, passive armor is more likely; and ERA application is doubtful.
