AMX-13 SM1 Tank Model (VH001)
SGD$420.00 – SGD$480.00
The AMX-13 SM1 Tank Model leads the way for our expansion into vehicles. At the time of this release, our SM1 variant of the popular AMX-13 model is the first and only one of its kind available in the world.
When designing it, we focused on ensuring that it accurately captured the various details of Singapore’s upgrade from the originally-acquired French AMX-13s to the SM1s ultimately used by the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF).
Examples of these details include the enhanced suspension system, raised turret, and many more. Such details are what make our AMX-13 SM1 Tank Model especially meaningful as an iconic keepsake of Singapore’s military history.
It is a beautifully-crafted piece that was carefully made for the enjoyment of collectors and military enthusiasts alike. Particularly, it serves as a definitive physical memory for all Servicemen and Women who trained with it.

More About the AMX-13 SM1 Tank
The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) acquired the French-made AMX-13 in 1968, spearheading the formation of the 1st Armoured Unit – 40 Singapore Armoured Battalion. The AMX-13s were later upgraded in 1988 to the Singapore Modernised 1 Tanks (SM1).
In total, the AMX-13 SM1’s employment in the SAF spanned almost 40 years. Due to its long service, this tank holds a special place in the SAF, and for generations of Singapore National Servicemen who trained with it – particularly for the Singapore Armoured Regiment, whose operations were closely involved with the tank.
