The AMX Napoleon is the main battle tank of the Sieuxerrian Army. It is a third generation main battle tank designed in the early 1980s to replace the AMX-45. Due to its expensive electro-optical gunnery system, the use of titanium and other composite materials, has made the AMX Napoleon one of the most expensive main battle tanks in the world.
