The AMX-56 Leclerc, commonly known as the Leclerc, is a main battle tank (MBT) developed by GIAT Industries, France. It is claimed to be one of the fastest tanks in the world. It is named after General Philippe Leclerc de Hauteclocque, commander of the French armored division during World War II. Having been into production ever since 1991, the Leclerc came into use in 1992 in order to replace the AMX 30 as the country's main armored platform. The French Army has a total of 406 Leclerc MBTs and the United Arab Emirates Army counts 388 of them. One Leclerc is worth about US$7.4 million.
