    Background: THREE NEW FRENCH ATOM-PROOFED TANKS, SHOWN FOR THE FIRST TIME TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC, WERE THE HIGHLIGHT OF TODAY'S ANNUAL JULY 14 PARADE IN PARIS, CELEBRATING THE FALL OF THE BASTILLE IN THE FRENCH REVOLUTION.

    THE TANKS, THE 'A.M.X.30', DESIGNED TO PROTECT THEIR CREWS FROM ATOMIC RADIATION AND RADIOACTIVE DUST, THUNDERED DOWN THE CHAMPS ELYSEES IN A 90-MINUTE DISPLAY OF THE NATION'S MILITARY NIGHT. THEY ROLLED PAST A TRIBUNE OF HONOUR WHERE PRESIDENT DE GAULLE, DRESSED IN HIS GENERAL'S UNIFORM, TOOK THE SALUTE.

    EARLIER THE GENERAL, ACCOMPANIED BY PRIME MINISTER GEORGES POMPIDOU, DROVE DOWN THE AVENUE AT THE START OF THE PARADE OF NEARLY 9,000 MEN OF THE ARMED FORCES AND A FLY-PAST OF 148 AIRCRAFT.

    AMONG THE GUESTS ON THE OFFICIAL TRIBUNE WAS PRESIDENT FULBERT YOULOU OF THE CONGO (BRAZZAVILLE) REPUBLIC.
