    Finally got to drive around in a Leo last week. This was pretty much me when it got dark out and we started launching smoke cannisters:

    Will they equip the Bison with any armament?

    Probably a MG-lafette I would imagine. All our other large trucks have a ring mount for MGs.

    Yes
    It's stored in a cooled container (Heat decreases the accuracy e.g)

    Oh, I see. I thought they would use a hardened semi-buried place.
    Thanks !

    Well, as usual the information in this video is about zero for everyone with some basic knowledge of the Bundeswehr. Anyway, who doesn't like to see tanks in action?
    For the English speaking audience: the video shows the development from the M-48 over Leopard 1 to the Leopard 2 MBTs of the Bundeswehr

    Nice video, though. Have never before seen footage of a tank to go so deep under water.

    The title of the video is "volunteering for the Bundeswehr"

    And no, females were never conscripted.

    There is no general conscription in germany anymore. It's been replaced last year by a voluntary military service (12-23 months) which is open for women as well.
