1/35 French Main Battle Tank Leclerc Series 2

This modern Tamiya classic, originally released as Item 35279 in 2005, is given a re-release with a new number and plastic road wheel parts in place of the original’s die-cast components. The Leclerc featured a 4-stroke V8 diesel allowing a top speed of 72km/h on road and 50km/h cross country, and was equipped with a French built 120mm, L/52 smoothbore cannon. Series 2 tanks had an air conditioner to cool the computer system as well as several other improvements.
