West Germany developed its Leopard 2 main battle tank after the failure of joint development of MBT-70/ KPz70 tank with the United States. The Leopard 2 first entered service in 1979. It got through several modifications during production. The fifth batch of Leopard 2 tanks produced since 1985 were designated as Leopard 2 A4. When Germany finished the production of all eight batches in 1992, a total of 2125 Leopard 2s were produced. Leopard 2 is universally recognized as one of the best and most balanced main battle tanks today. It is the primary equipment of 16 countries in the world.
The combat weight of the Leopard 2 A4 MBT is 55t. It’s fitted with a Rheinmetall 120mm L/44 smoothbore gun and a digital fire control computer. It’s powered by a 1500hp MTU MB873 diesel engine. Its maximum speed is up to 72km/h.
