The Leclerc T4 is a Tier 10 progression Main Battle Tank under Francine De Laroche's dealership.

History[]

Class: Main Battle Tank (Prototype)
Developed: 1980-1996
Service: N/A
Vehicles Built: 1
Operators: France

As its name suggests, the T4 is a variant of the standard Leclerc MBT. It’s also known under the name “Terminateur” (Terminator), which is, however, mostly unofficial and was originally only used for its brand-new T4 turret, from where it apparently moved to the entire vehicle. The enlarged turret is armed with a massive 140mm cannon of unknown properties, an upscaled version of the 120mm Leclerc cannon. This project actually existed in the 1980s in one form or another, but the actual prototype was built around 1996. At that point, it underwent a series of tests and was mothballed until 2015 or so, when it appeared in a military magazine, possibly as an attempt to mitigate the 2015 fears of the Armata program. Some more images appeared in 2017, this time of the same prototype painted in Scorpion program colors. However, due do the recent decisions of the Russian military to focus on upgrading the existing fleet of Soviet era tanks rather than purchasing any significant Armata numbers along with the development of a joint European MBT, it seems clear that the appearance of the images was little more than a publicity stunt and the chance of it ever appearing in service is quite low.
