Abstract

This will be a study of French armor, from the Levasseur Project up to the AMX-56 Leclerc. In this study, it will be looked at how the initial philosophies for how a tank should be designed, and how its combat should be conducted, and then compare these philosophies to ones for the next generation of tanks, and then the next generation, and so on and so forth. This will be conducted by observing what makes up each tank, that is to say what is the balance between each tank of the three basics of armor: Firepower, Mobility, and Protection.
