Leclerc tank bore evacuator


New Member
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.
