The AMX-13 DCA is an early Cold War era self-propelled anti-aircraft gun of French origin. It was developed in the late 1960's to provide forward air defense to French tank battalions. A relatively small production run of 60 vehicles was completed and served until the end of the Cold War. The name DCA stands for "Défense Contre Avions" which translates to "defense against aircraft". The AMX-13 DCA was never used in combat and is no longer in use.
