    The EX version is no real version of the Leopard 2 tank. Its just a demonstration version with absolutly all extras attached. The latest Leopard is the Leopard 2 A6M, with extra Mine protection.

    So Germany is planning on getting a new tank in 2015 right?

    I hope that it is a totally new design with lower profile and smaller turret and more armour around the crew, as well as armour that is better able to withstand Anti Armour weapons. Good to see a smaller tank with same firepower but smaller sot hat it can easily be trasnported.

    I hope that Poland waits until Germany gets thier newest toy so that we can get it too. By 2015 our economy should be alot better then it is now and hopefully would allow us to make that type of purchase.

    2015 was the mentioned date, when Germany plans to replace their Leopard 2 tanks. But its just a plan.. who knows what will happen. Also who knows what kinda vehicle will replace the Leo. Maybe another MBT, or maybe just a variant of the currently developed PUMA, kinda german FCS (Future Combat System).. who knows...

    So we've all heard that the canadians are fazing out the leo's eh...
    I saw some photo's of our replacement! Defence Minister David Pratt is
    quoted as saying, they are much quieter, cheaper on fuel and easy to
    maintain then the leopard c1 or c2, and for once we have a mbt which is transportable by hercules!.






    Just a couple of lads from the Strathcona's Mounted Troops looking sharp

    Quick, grab the gustav!
    just a lil bit of humor, hope no one gets frazzled.

    Wrong . Leo2a6EX is not EXperimental , or EXtras . It is EXport , it is Export version of the tank , featuring Air conditioner , improved L55 , and several other features . So it very resembles to Spanish Leopard 2E , and it is basicly has the same features .


    Germans didn't inveted tank tactics . They change the tactic drasticly . Before it , the tank were considered as a intfantry backing vehicle , and nothing more . Germans were the first that used the tanks as massed power working all together , and not just helping the infantry , they invented the consept of "armored fist" , the Blitskrig - use of different forces combined working together and backing each other , while the tanks playing role of charging spearhead . Romel was also probably the father of Tank warfare in desert .



    Damnit , that is so spooky .



    Beautiful picture . That's perfect place to tank ambush , examples from the books where tank shouldn't suppose to enter .



    A look from Leo TC (tank commander) seat . The screen from the left is FLIR , right screen is C2 GPS screen , and all that bellow the screens belongs to gunner . Again , beautiful picture .

    Very Nice posts. Still think Challey 2 is the best though

    how many original Leopard 2 customers are signing up for the A5/A6 upgrades?

    Any one have any idea what happed to the 140mm gun the swiss were developing for the leopard?

    I have never said, that EX mean Extra or Experimental. But still the Ex Version is a demonstartion-kinda model to attract customers worldwide, to show them what the Leo 2 could be. But the EX itself is no operational tank in any army.

    "Blitzkrieg" is a word that was found by journalists who tried to describe the German victories in their offense against Belgium, Netherlands an France. And these victories were more luckiliy than strategically or tactical.
