Greetings Commanders!

Yesterday, I was telling you about the Tier 10 Leopard 1 tank to be implemented in-game.
Today, I will talk about one of it's older prototype, the A2 prototype.

(click on any pictures to see it in glorious high resolution)

This prototype A2 was Atlas – MAK in 1960. It marks an armour improvement from the A1 prototype by bringing the upper front plate from 50mm to 70mm. (Lower Front plate remained at 50mm). The extra armor increased tank's weight to 39 tons.
In total, 26 prototypes will be build by Jung - Jungenthal and Atlas - MAK.

A little gift to our historical modellers, the front measurements:

And of course, I won't forget the rest of you guys with some extra pictures:

And in-game pictures of the final tank in-game!

Looks awesome and can't wait to play it.

I'm afraid that the armour upgrade won't be enough to actually do much for us in the game.   :ohmy:  Hopefully it's fast enough to dodge instead.

20 rounds in the turret, 48 rounds in the hull. Total ammo: 68
Gun is a variant of the British Royal Ordnance L7 L/52 where the upper rear corner of the breech block has been reduced in size so gun can be depressed without hitting the turret roof.

I cannot speak of in-game values. I will probably bear the name on L7A3 L/51 in-game, but it's performance will be determined by our game designers for game balance.

Yay to! While I am still not sure on the looks of the Indienpanzer, I really love the Leo AG2 and Leo 1 modells! Such beauties!
