The Leclerc main battle tank (MBT) built by Giat Industries (now known as Nexter Systems) is operational with the French Army (1992 onwards) and the armed forces of Abu Dhabi of the United Arab Emirates (1995). The French Army has 354 Leclerc MBTs in service, concluding a total order of 406 (plus 20 armoured recovery vehicles). The Leclerc replaced the AMX-30 (also available as a model design on this site) in French service. An additional 390 tanks have been ordered by UAE. It is an impressive, but very expensive vehicle, fitted with advanced electronic and situational awareness systems.
Two models are provided, with a separate common turret that allows for rotation. The first is a hollowed out integrated model, suitable for resin printers. A version with separate track units is also provided for fdm printing. The permanently fitted side skirts have permitted the simplification of the track units, easing removal of printing supports.
The product is offered for personal, non-commercial use. Derivative designs for personal use may be generated, but neither the original nor derivatives may be shared with others. Attribution of the design is requested should printed models be exhibited or otherwise shared. Models printed from this design or derivatives may not be sold commercially.
