Leopard 3

Recommended Posts

Tiger Model have already announced one in 1/35 plastic and Royal Arsenal already do one in 1/72 (resin??).  Not bad considering this is currently nothing more than a company technology demonstrator.

Leo 2 was completely different from Leo 1: completely.  Underneath it all, this is still a Leo 2.  No new hull.  No new suspension.  No new powerplant.  No new armament.  Just new systems and external add-ons.  So I don't think it will become Leo 3.  Nor do I think it will sell in the same numbers as earlier Leo 2 evolutions even if it makes it to production.  The price will be huge, too huge to be risked in actual combat.  Possibly as much as €10M.  A premium tank for parades, recruiting posters and presidential guards.  Something to prove that the Western tank industry is alive and kicking as a counter to T-90MS
