A New Armor Legend

 

The Leopard 2 A7, developed by Krauss-Maffei Wegmann GmbH & Co. KG (KMW), is the latest version of the 36-year-old Leopard 2 MBTs. This vehicle has a series of upgrades for low intensity conflicts: it has received a new APU and a new air conditioning system to improve environment inside the vehicle. It’s prepared for the installation of add-on armor on its hull which can be done in a quick manner when necessary. It’s still fitted with the add-on armor against chemical energy anti-tank weapons on the turret and the chassis like on the Leopard 2 A5 and Leopard 2 A6M. Thanks to those upgrades, the Leopard 2 A7 has become the most advanced main battle tank that is most suitable for LIC operations in German Army so far.
The MENG TS-027 German Main Battle Tank Leopard 2 A7 follows the design concept of the previous Leopard 2 A4 model kit. This kit includes movable suspension, cement-free workable tracks and adhesive mirror foil, clear lights and optical equipment, precision PE parts and the paint scheme of German unit in active service. It precisely replicates the first Leopard 2 A7 main battle tanks.
