One of this manufacturer's large range of wheel driven 'armoured cars', the Egalite I performs the role of both APC and an anti-tank platform, biased more towards the former than the latter.

Armour is not thick though employing a slightly stretched hull from the Liberte APC, internal space is still limited so - alongside the two crew members (both of which sit in the vehicle hull) - there is only space for half an infantry squad. Unlike the Liberte and the Egalite II, the low remote turret fitted with a Cone-bore weapon does not intrude overly into the main compartment giving slightly more room. However, access and, more specifically, egress for these infantry is still restricted and convoluted.

The main weapon - a 2cm Cone-bore - is effective against vehicles and armoured targets, though less so against infantry.

Defence is poor against all but small arms: point defence is limited and local defence uses a Flechette Machine Gun. Armour is thin .

Where the vehicle scores is on value for money: the system delivers a big 'punch' with it's main weapon, fully capable of destroying all but the biggest tanks. The vehicle is quite fast over most terrain and, as one commander said, "the Cone-bore's awful against infantry but when dealing with indigs, it does at least keep their heads down…"
