Its called the LeClerc after General Phillippe Leclerc a French general of WWII.

And yes, its a very good tank, probably amongst the top 5 modern tanks. Subject to different opinions, but I would place it just slightly inferior to the LEO2 and M1A2, about equal to the UK Challenger 2. But a very dangerous adversary with a skilled crew.

Wiki has a pretty good history and technical description.
