LECLERC TANK
MAIN BATTLE TANK
MISSION
The LECLERC tank enables armoured units
to fight, defeat, and survive against an
out-numbering enemy. Its ability to fire
on-the-move, high firing rate and firepower,
and exceptional mobility enables it to impose
its rhythm on the enemy. It engages the
enemy at a speed on 50 km/h on all-terrains.
It fights day and night, under all weather
conditions and in contaminated zones.
Its all-purpose modular armouring, “hunter killer” function, stealth, agility and engagement
distance award it an unequalled survival capacity.

Requiring a crew of only 3 men thanks to its automatic loading system, its weight in combat
order is less than 58 tons in its latest version and its nominal power rated at 1,500hp. Fitted
with hydropneumatic suspensions, its maximum speed is 72km/h on the road and 55km/h on
all-terrains. Its main weapon is the standard NATO 120mm / 52 cal and it is equipped with a
coaxial 12.7mm machine gun, as well as a 7.62mm roof machine gun.
