Yeah, but as far as I'm aware the Eland has a different engine (a diesel instead of the petrol engine the AML uses) and at very least the coaxial gun in the turret is different (it's the MAS AA-53 NF-1 that uses 7.62x51mm NATO instead of the 7.5x54mm French the basic AA-53 uses).

Actually, Enads has been rearmed to FN-MAG (7.62) and Browning M1919. The base variants of Eland use has a MAS AA-53 and they has been rearmed after rise of aparteid if SA. And you are wrong: Eland Use a standart petrol engine simular to standart engine of AML. And some about coaxial: Rhodesian army use M1919 and those cars has been rearmed in Rhodesia.

Well sure, but the Stryker and LAV-25 have about the same relationship to the MOWAG Piranha and those are labelled separately.

Actually no. MOWAG Piranha is just a chasis but weapon systems and engines with some electronics is desighned be GMC and GD. Another example - Soviet T-26 which has been a heavy redesighned version of Vickers 6-ton. First Elands has been maded fron french build-kits and some has been modernised from ordernary AMLs.

In IMCDB I can write as "Origin - French, Build in South Africa" bit heare it is impossible.

Reumech OMC Eland 90 is a SA variant of Panhard AML. Many of Elands has been converted from original french AML. Eland is just a variant.

Correct ID for the version would be Reumech OMC Eland 90 (or Mk 9).

But based on French AML.
