The Panhard AML or AML-60 is a modern French armored car. The first prototypes were created at the end of the 1950s, and serial production continued in the years 1961-1987 and led to the creation of about 4,000 vehicles of this type. The drive is provided by a single motor Panhard power 91 hp. It is armed with a 90mm AML-90 tank gun or a 60mm mortar and 1-2 7.62mm machine guns.

The Panhard AML was created as a successor to the Daimler Ferret car used by the French army. The French army, however, wanted to acquire a new construction of domestic production. The Panhard AML turned out to be a very successful car. It is characterized by high mobility for a two-axle car, reliability and simplicity of construction, great susceptibility to modifications and decent armor. Many variants of this vehicle were created in the course of series production. The basic model was the AML-60, armed with a mortar and a machine gun. A version of the AML-60 HE 60-20 armed with a mortar and a 20mm cannon was also built. A variant armed with a 90 caliber gun (AML-90) and a modified version with night vision equipment and richer electronic equipment (AML-90 Lynx) were also developed. Panhard AML vehicles have been used not only by the French army, but also by many foreign operators, including: Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Birkina Faso, Burundi, Iraq, Nigeria, Portugal, Rwanda, El Salvador, Togo and Tunisia. They also took part in dozens of armed conflicts, including the war in Algeria (1954-1962), the Six-Day War (1967), the Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988) and the Gulf War (1990-1991).
