Default Canada deploying 20 Leopard 2A4M-Can to Afgh.

We just receive our brand new ( freshly updated ) Leopard 2A4M-C, and they are quite impressive. They look bigger than the A6... This will had quite alot of firepower to C.F. in Afgh. It remind me the CR2 used in Irak ( with all its pimpin thing )

Gunner view would be my guess.

HotRod,

Do you happen to have a list of changes/ additions of the 2A4M-C, above 2A6/ 2A4 models?

Have they bought 120mm demolition rounds for it yet? From what I understand one of the major complaints about the Leo 2 when first fielded in Afghanistan was the lack of HESH rounds, meaning it couldn't effectivly blast open compound walls like the old Leo 1 C2.

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!

Leopard 2A4? I would have sweared it was that new Leopard 2A7 (KMW) showed not long ago. But yeah at closer look it seems like it is an uparmored Leopard 2A4.

Anyway that looks pretty sexy.
But that is not a surprise, all german armor is sexy. Denying it, is blasphemous.

Agree, this is pure sex:

If violence isn't the answer, then you obviously need more violence.

Yeah... I would love to see UNMANNED tanks [ Leopard 2A4MC/A6M, M1A3 Ab and a T90] being the target to there proper treath [ ex : L2A4MC being shot at by the T90 ] to see what they realy worth. Being a Canadian Armor Crewman myself, i got way to much love to Leopard 2. So my thinking is falsed
