From your link: The turret’s flexible design allows it to be integrated with either 105/52 mm rifled or 120/45 mm smoothbore low recoil force guns.
The turret is a good three feet longer than the LAV turret - as it needs to make room for the low recoil force gun.
The AMX-10 has a "medium velocity" 105mm. Use of full pressure 105mm tank rounds will destroy the system in short order, can they be used in extremis - yes, but understanding that you are going to beat the system to death in a basic load -- which may be acceptable in the circumstances - but shouldn't be a goal.
The question I ask for proponents of this sort of system is what role do you see for them?
I offer General Bullivant's "Fustest with the mostest."
Do the jobs it can, where it can, when it can.
Kind of like those sniper types crawling around in the grass with the slugs and snails in the armoured battlefield. Outranged, outgunned, unarmoured and dead slow. And yet we still hire them. Why is that?
