Leclerc tank bore evacuator

Topic: Leclerc tank bore evacuator

Does any one know how the Leclerc tank pushes the propellant gases out the muzzle after firing the gun? As you likely know, the M256 uses a bore evacuator but another way is a positive pressure in the turret, but I hear the Leclerc uses something like a compressed gas. If that is so, would they have a compressor on board or where are they are sourcing this gas from? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
