Why are they deploying these? we still got C2s and 2A6Ms, and we are on the last rotation.

I'd thought there was no where on the Leopard 2 hull to mount this that could support the weight, wonder how they solved that.

'Replaced MG3 with GPMG.' Any reason for this, is the GPMG ammo more readily available in theatre or is the MG3 under-performing (surely not)?

Logistics / training would be the primary reason behind this decision, I believe. As the GPMG is already in Canadian service as the C6.

Canadian Army do not use M.G.3, they are used on A6M-C only cause we dont took the time to modify the turret to accept GPMG.

Yeah but the 3-10 is getting 20 more Leopard 2A4M-C for field testing. They will also replace the C2s that have a outrageous broke-rate.

Leopard 2A6M-PSO have a dozer. The L2A4M-C is about 80 tons so it can easily carry a 1000 pounds blade

Also, one of the major points agaisnt the old Leo 1 C2 is that, unlike the Leo 2, it doesn't have air conditioning. Which means it kinda sucks to be a Leo 1 crewman in Afghanistan in summer! (what with them being designed to blow up T-62s in northern Germany and all)

The key to modernising any weapon is covering them in glue and tossing them in a barrel of M1913 rails until they look "Modern" enough.

Many thanks to [R-DEV]Adriaan for the sig!
