The French found funds for the modernization of Leclerc tanks

During the first stage of modernization, protective grills for the engine compartment and the rear of the turret will be installed on the Leclerc tanks, as well as modular hanging booking. In addition, the tanks will completely update the electronics in order to fully interact on the battlefield with new combat vehicles.

We remind you that back in 2014, the French Ministry of Defense announced the launch of the Scorpion program. As part of this program, the French Defense Ministry planned a deep modernization of the Leclerc tank, as well as the creation of three combat vehicles in the interests of the French army: the Griffon multipurpose armored vehicle, the Jaguar combat reconnaissance armored vehicle and the VBMR-L light armored vehicle.

The AMX-56 Leclerc is the main French tank created in the 80s of the last century to replace the outdated AMX-30. The tank entered the series in the 1992 year, for the 15 years the 794 units "Leclerc" were created. To date, the production of AMX-56 discontinued. 406 units are in service with the French army, 388 units are in service with the UAE. One of the most expensive modern tanks in the world, the approximate cost of one car per 2012 a year is 6 million euros. The French 120-mm bore gun CN 120-26 with a barrel length 52 caliber is used as the main armament. Ammunition is interchangeable with other NATO smoothbore guns.

          Rather, the Leclerc standard. It is considered the 5-m generation, one of the most modern tanks.

    Hmm ... but I remember they promised a new turret and an 140 mm cannon! That means a "stripped down" modernization. Until recently, the Leclerc tower was shown on the Eurosatori on the Leo-2 chassis. So the French are not very happy with their chassis. Let's see what comes out of them, all of a sudden not enough money

    When are tanks prepared and upgraded? Two answers: firstly, when preparing for tank biathlon, and secondly, when preparing for large-scale military operations in Europe. It is unlikely that the government and the French Ministry of Defense are seriously considering sporting tank events. Therefore, guessing from three times where the French want to fight is not necessary.
    It’s time to update the old films on civil defense, where the destruction of large cities during a nuclear strike was described “picturesquely”. And then Hollywood did everything so that nuclear weapons were considered something like a box of matches, albeit flashed in his hand, but not particularly harmful (in some films, the main characters even kiss with a French kiss against the background of a nuclear mushroom in the background. Is it so cool !?).

    laughing And did this “green toad” already fall under the “rusty Russian” “hail” rockets? Somehow, after Shumeria, “expensive tanks”, even the “armata”, according to the stated parameters, were worrying - the tank was removed, only harsh reality showed that all these millions of bucks and Euros, under the attack of a “penny” hail, became charred unnecessary shit. request
