The Leclerc is in service with the French Army and the army of the United Arab Emirates. In production since 1991, the Leclerc entered French service in 1992, replacing the AMX 30 as the country's main armoured platform. The improved Series 2 LeClerc features: new NBC system which integrates a hybrid air conditioner. independent air conditioning unit installed on the back roof behind the gunner's hatch.

In order to balance the turret since the adding of the air conditioner, the turret frontal armor is thickened a few centimeters ahead of the commander's station. revised sprocket cooling fins. extra splash guard added to the front hull. Remote operated hydraulic track tensioner. bolt-on appliqué armour on each hull sponsons. Athos thermal camera on the gunner's sight is replaced by the new Iris thermal camera since the block 9 (T9). SIT ICONE battlefield management system added in 2009 With production now complete, the French Army has 406 Leclerc and the United Arab Emirates Army has 388.

The Leclerc has mostly seen deployment on low-intensity conflicts, including 15 Leclerc stationed in Kosovo (KFOR) and others in Lebanon (UNIFIL) within UN peace-keeping operations, where their performance was judged satisfactory by French officials. Until 2010, 13 Leclercs were deployed in the south Lebanon for a peacekeeping mission with UNIFIL. As of August 2015, Leclerc tanks of the United Arab Emirates were deployed in combat operations in Yemen (near Aden) as part of the Saudi-led coalition.

It is estimated that 70 Leclerc MBTs were deployed by the UAE in Yemen, 15 of them equipped with the AZUR package. During one month, three tanks were damaged, two by antitank mines and one by an RPG, which damaged the grid without piercing the hull. In a single incident; one Leclerc tank was hit and penetrated in the driver's hatch by an ATGM, possibly of Konkurs or Konkurs-M type, resulting in the death of the driver and injuries to the legs of the commander. None of these tanks were completely destroyed. The price in 2011 was €9.3 million, which made it the most expensive tank in history at the time.*
