The YPR-765 PRAT is a variant of the YPR-765 series of mechanized infantry combat vehicles.
The AMX-765 PRAT has two TOW missiles ready to launch.
The predecessor of the YPR-765 PRAT is the AMX-PRAT, which is a conversion of the AMX armored personnel carrier for use in the anti-tank role by fitting a pedestal mounted TOW launcher.
The YPR-765 PRAT uses the same Emerson turret as used on the American M901 Improved TOW Vehicle.
