   The Renault TRM 700-100 tractor truck was first revealed in 1987. It was specially designed as a tactical vehicle to transport the Leclerc main battle tank. It can also haul semi-trailers with other combat vehicles or construction equipment. It appears to be based on the Renault TRM 10 000 heavy utility truck. In 1993 Renault received a French Army order for 179 TRM 700-100 tank transporters. A second order was anticipated for additional 121 vehicles, however it did not follow. Production of this tractor truck is now complete.

   The Renault TRM 700-100 is based on conventional design. Its chassis, frame and fifth wheel are specially reinforced to handle heavy loads at high travel speeds.

   A hard-topped forward control cab is similar to that used on the Renault TRM 10 000, but enlarged to carry more passengers. It provides seating for driver and four passengers, so vehicle can transport entire crew of the MBT. The cab tilts forward hydraulically for engine maintenance and servicing.

   The TRM 700-100 is powered by Renault E9 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 700 hp. Vehicle has a full-time all wheel drive. It is designed to maintain an average speed of 50 km/h over distances exceeding 800 km. This tractor truck is fitted with a pair of 18 t capacity loading winches behind the cab. These are used for loading and unloading operations.
