    This is a post to appreciate all the Leopard 1 Tanks. May our hearts be with them and they live a good life in the tank community.

    There was a WW2 Leopard - the VK1602 Leopard fast recce tank. Armed with a 5Cm long gun. Only prototype as it was found that a Puma armoured car could do the job.

    They should have used them on the Russian Front in WW II. Fast, longer range gun capable of defeating a JS II or JS III. :p
