1/35 Dutch Leopard 2 A5/A6NL

The successor to the Leopard 1, the Leopard 2, was first produced in 1979. A variety of upgrade programs and options are available for the Leopard 2. These include the Atlas Elektronik Vehicle Integrated Command and Information System (IFIS), a digital command and information system. The Leopard 2 has had technical improvements under Upgrading Level I and Level II programs. A new smoothbore gun, the 120-millimeter L55 Gun, has been developed by Rheinmetall GmbH of Ratingen, Germany to replace the shorter 120-millimeter L44 smoothbore tank gun on the Leopard 2. It permits effective use of a new APFSDS-T round, DM53 (LKE II), with a longer rod penetrator, and which is under development.
The Leopard 2 NL differs from its German counterpart in having a Dutch-designed smokes mortar system with six barrels on each side, a Dutch-built passive night periscope for the driver, a 762 mm FN MAG machine gun installed co-axially to the main gun and one further MAG for air defense, and Phillips radios with US-style antenna bases.
