- This Is Why No Nation Wants to Fight the Leopard 2 Tank
The Leopard 2 is one of the world’s most common main battle tanks, used by militaries on four continents. As such, the market for upgrades that bring the older versions up to the latest standards of protection and lethality is large. The primary player here is Krauss-Maffei Wegman, the original designer of the Leopard 2, who markets a variety of kits and new versions of the Leopard 2.
Before delving into the details of the update kits, it’s important to realize what standard the majority of the world’s Leopards are at. The majority of Leopard 2s operated worldwide are of the Leopard 2A4 standard, which was made between 1985 and 1992.
The Leopard 2A4 has the characteristic flat turret front, an all-digital fire-control system, an L44 gun, a hydraulic turret drive, and a thermal gunner’s sight. They do not have an independent thermal commander's sight, advanced guns, or add-on armor.

still manget to forget to mention the the danish variant
Its amazing how they're producing different variations of it according the requirements of every country. Wonderful machine, very intimidating and advanced but as I always say: I prefer to never see it in real action as no one wants war!
@jotaro kujo in assuming you're done talking.
@jotaro kujo Vietnam the US took over that war from the French. South Korea they ask for our help. Dessert storm helping out allies. And this war between Russia and Ukraine. We would be going in but our president has no backbone plus the threats of nuclear bombs. But the war started cuz Ukraine wanted to become a part of NATO. Russia doesn't want this. So the US and her allies are supplying them weapons to defend themselves. Russia has no business taking over another country. Us hasn't it's in our Constitution we can't take over other countries just help.
@Chris McKnight Okay, about Afghanistan can still be deserved, but the rest of the invasion? Yugoslavia Syria Iraq and the point is not that the US and NATO simply destroyed these countries, the point is that no one condemned them for this But Russia was condemned by half the world, although we all saw what Zelensky said about nuclear bombs, etc.
It’s amazing how upgradable they were engineered to be
@Sam Moss - My Mercedes is that way !
@Sam Moss they are!
wouldn't it be nice if their cars where like that
Look at the Abrams. They can be basically stripped to a bare steel frame for upgrading/repairs....
Andrej, dik, je to vyborne, ako vzdy (mohol by si castejsie, prehodot priority :-) )., aj moderator sa mi pozdava. Pls, kolko stoji najlacnejsi variat leopardu 2 (ak to nie je Desne tajny) ?
I was stationed in Germany from 72-74 the leopard was far superior than the M60 main battle tank I was in. The US lagged way behind until the Abrams came out.
@Jeremyayers1990 The US lags behind in more than technology of tanks.
@John Moe The USA couldn't even bring themselves to adopt the best battle rifle of it's time, the FN FAL. Most of NATO countries adopted the FAL, and the pig headed US military forced the M14 upon their troops in Vietnam. Canada was the first country outside of Belgium to adopt the obvious best, despite the US insistance on the 7.62mm cartridge (great for full auto)....One more reason Americans are generally disliked the world over, more so than the French even.
Arg. I remembered wrong. Norway never had M60's. It was A M48 Patton. Still a great story 🙂
@Slingbart I used to command a Leopard 1A5 back in the mid nineties. My company commander told us fresh sergeants a story when he and others where test shooting a M60 after a long time in storage. The procedure required to fire the cannon with a lanyard. Surprisingly this was the correct way to do it. The breech gave in and exploded inside the turret. They survived to fire a tank another day.
Imagine what mankind could achieve, if only we weren’t so obsessed with destroying each other 🤔
It’s a peace tank isn’t it 😂.
One day, we might. I still have hope
Yeah 😢, God gave us hands , perfect for creating
@David Braaksma "have occoured[sic] during war time"… coincidentally.
Lol let’s get you a Nobel Peace prize 😂
The current Leopard 2 may not be the best in all categories, but its overall package offers incredible upgrade capability, flexibility, easy maintenance, very acceptable offensive and defensive capabilities, extremely good fording capabilities, high unsupported climb heights, fairly good fuel efficiency, very good top speed both on and off road, high accuracy, and quite a few other above average to top tier qualities. Yes, there are other tanks that can beat the current most modern Leopard 2 version in some categories, but none of them offer the same package of overall qualities. None of its qualities are truely below average, with maybe the exception of its price tag.
Yes, if you look for a highly specialised tank for certain highly specific tasks you might better tanks elsewhere.
But if you want an overall exceptional tank with only a few drawbacks then the Leopard 2 is your choice. If you throw in top tier training and understanding of how to use this tank in a combined arms setting then this beast becomes a real monster.
Misuse it outside its designated roles, and its qualities drop to mediocre. But that's the case with all misused equipment, be it military or civilian, so nothing special about the Leopard 2 here.
ok,sold.Where to order?
@Джемчик Жэри , я б поверил бы, если б было похоже на правду
@Евгений Гринëв ну, российского Киева нет, потому что армия РФ задействована на Украине на 15% от её реальной мощи, поэтому твои вбросы тоже ниочём
Wenn man keine Ahnung hat einfach mal die Fresse halten.
@Shakrom I was thinking to say the same, but then I realized that it would be true, but rude. And then again : The "Leclerc" isn't realy bad.
It should be noted that 50% of a tanks effectiveness will be determined by the training of the crews . That's why the Abrams is considered one of the best - the crew training is extensive. If the Leopard has similar crew training it will be just as effective or maybe better with the diesel engines.
@Steffi Reitsch зверей ждут класно горят ждем повторения 1943
@FeverRub So, of course, luck always plays a role. but nobody will seriously deny that a tank needs a good crew, with a bad crew the best tank is precious scrap a not so good tank can deliver good results with a good crew. I often go to racetracks and it's similar there. A really good driver can also make up for a lack of performance. I hope you know what I mean. Greetings
@Tony Montana It was a about the comment: The skill of the crew makes always 50% of the effectness. Well in thís case back in ww2 you could be the best crew. If youre outgunned, youre outgunned. Thats what I wanted to say.
But today its mostly true I guess.
Sure a Tiger is massivly outdated xD
88 vs 120 mm... I mean cmon
@FeverRub where did you get stuck on it? sherman crews haven't existed for over 70 years, except in russia a lot has changed in the last 70 years. an 88 does nothing for a challenger, leopard, t72, t90.m1abrams. a leopard from the 80 hits up to 5 km with pinpoint accuracy, when driving without stopping. i leave it to your imagination what the leopards can do several generations later.less emojis think more
@Tony Montana Tell this a Sherman tank crew that got shot from 2 km away by a 88-Tiger cannon 😆
No soy experto en lo militar, pero analizando las características de cada tanque se ve que tienen diferentes propósitos: en invierno el T90 supera al Leopard 2, en primavera o verano el Leopard 2 supera al T90. Las armas antitanque son efectivas contra los dos tanques. La estratégia y habilidad es l que define la batalla
@General Zed Ну да. надо верить что они справятся
@Mnbvcxzlk Jhgfd Sapoiuytrewq Они легче не просто так их создавали лучший умы СССР с учётом опыта боевых действии 5 миллионной армий у РФ очень большой опыт видение боевых действий на своей территорий 😇
@General Zed Т 90 и Т 80 тоже потонят? Ведь это тяжелые танки
@Mnbvcxzlk Jhgfd Sapoiuytrewq против западных ))) и тяжёлые танки тонут на русской земле почему думаете русские танки на много легче ? ) это же все продумывалось.
@General Zed Какого черта!!??? Тяжелые танки очень устойчивы даже против западных противотанковых средств и к тому же Леопард 2 относится к лучшим тяжелым танкам Европы, наравне с М1 Абрамс и Т 90 и Челленджер 2
I like the mobility of these Leopards, but I can't help but wonder how much they give up in regards to armor to bring their weight down.
They do look sexy though!
We Greeks have more than about 170 custom Leopard 2 a6s' as they got the parts completed in the end here in Greece..I served in the army, i was in it and i shot with it..Germans make the best tanks for real..Its a masterpiece in all aspects,armor,firepower,speed,range...
@Willie Willowitch you know it from the inside right?Cause i served for my country and shot quite a few of the ammunition that we "don't have".
Ironic that the Greeks don't have ammunition for the many tanks.
Well I wouldn't argue with one, that's for sure! Whatever moral position you take on instruments of war, you can't help admiring it as a superb piece of machinery.
An insane tank!! Greetings from a former rifleman and later commander on the Leopard II A4-A6 Bundeswehr. Ps. And a better or newer version of the tank is not automatically superior to an older version, because a tank is only as good as its crew!!!
Greetings to the wannabe from WoT
@Stephen Tyas why? As a soldier in the Bundeswehr, I can't take part in this war. They would condemn me and imprison me if I would come back to Germany!I was also in Mazar e Sharif Afghanistan twice and fulfilled my goal for my country!
you going to Ukraine then.
good point,so who is going to operate these tanks in Ukraine.
Any weapon is tested in real combat. I don't think anyone will argue with this. My question is, in what real events with an enemy of equal strength was this tank involved in order to make such conclusions about its superiority?
Mister Google "no western tanks" But russian tanks were? Where?
@Chronoscopist No, he just pours on this little parade. ;-)
Are you trying to rain on this little parade?
Leopart 2 tankın a ön zırh 122 mm bir top atışı ile delinebilir. Yan zırhları 90mm top atışı ile yine kolaylıkla deline bilir. Kullandığın mühümat ve nereye isabet ettiğine baglı
its always impressive when you see that much weight bounce,
I’m impressed by the beauty of their weapons 😅
@Andrew H Gal Batash aint bad too. Like a Merkava turret but with an M60 hull
You didn't see the Merkava Mk4 tank.
Be interesting to see them in action around April 2023. Since they’ve really only faced 60’s & 70’s soviet era tanks and people who ride camels as a main attack vehicle. Assuming the EU has enough to send that are battle ready.
Уже ,один леопард захватили , вместе с отличным польским экипажем под Бахмутом.
@beerthug the russia tow-truck pull the 6 T-14 into battle jajajajajajaja!
@latinamajor Don't forget about the 6 or so semi functioning T14 Armatas...
Sweden chose the Leopard 2A5 to upgrade with some modifications because it's the best main battle tank when the most important element is mobility. Sweden made it a bit tougher in protection, improved the sights, added some smoke grenades, etc, basically what the newer variants have added.
Sweden also added some Swedish fish in the Leopard's snack compartment.
@Earl Grey All ther best, dork.
@Earl Grey We have it all already. Stay safe. By the way; Finland might be only country in the world to cover all people (by numbers) in bomb shelters if needed. Deal wit it.
the leopard projectile pierces 400 mm of armor of any tank, since the armor of a Russian tank is only 350 mm. The extended core of the projectile very clearly flies at the target without changing its trajectory.
И КСТАТИ !!!! ПРОТИВ ЛЕОПАРДА ЕСТЬ ОЧЕНЬ ХОРОШАЯ ТАКАЯ МАШИНКА ----НАЗЫВАЕТСЯ Т 90 ))))))))))))))))))))))))
I guess we’re going to be finding out how effective the Leopard and M1 are in combat against the Soviets. This is the adversary both were designed to face.
Выяснили уже.😁 Танк оказался плохой. Несёт потери. Ошибки те же что и раньше
we are all extremely excited about how it will (hopefully) succed.
As a German I am glad that we at least gave some and then not the museum version.
@Gero Hübner 🤣😂Germans have to remove the spiderwebs 😉Luckly if they still find parts🤫
@Neil Kurzman 😂🤣 or oposit ....all possible.....
@Neil Kurzman first ja got to get it......True that
It's the coolest looking tank!
As fascinating the technology looks, as far as I know not one Leopard tank was ever been tested in battle, and as far as I am informed, their high maintenance needs would be a hinderance in war.
If they get to the Ukraine in time, may be will see if they actually "battle worthy"
also this tank have 1/3 more weight than T72 tanks.. It will drown in mud.
What do you think will happen if it hits an anti-tank mine? Is the track not a bomb or is it hit by another tank's projectile? I know they'll just push it home.
Leopard 2A7, SG and NG are upgrades for Leopard 2 A4 so they all share the same vulnerability in the lowest position of the gunner acquisition system, compared to the better-designed Leopard 2 A5, Strv 122, A6, A6M, Hel, A6M CAN, E (a true intermediate step between the leopard 2A6 and the A7+), A7+ and A7Q
The Leropard 2 A4SG is the version for Singapore the NG is Turkeys domestic upgrade for its A4a and the A7 is the upgraded version of the A6 but it is the least version though newer sub versions like A7 Plus and A7 V exist. A5 is the upgraded version of the A4. Striv122 is Sewdens version of the A5 compatible to early versions of the A6. The Hel Can and E are upgraded versions of the Leopard 2 A6 M Plus variant in service with Greece Canada and Spain. the A6M is the upgraded version of the A6. the A6 Plus and the A6M Plus also exist and are in service.the A7Q is Qatars upgraded Leopard 2 A7 Plus with Urban Operations and Dual Operations Upgrade Packages with are variants of the Leopard 2 A7 Plus. comparing the Leopard 2 A7 to the A4 is likely comparing an Iowa class battleship with USS Monitor. And its about the same in terms of technology and capabilities to the Leopard 2 A7 and A4. The A4 upgraded to A4 M A4 Plus and A4 M Plus while the A5 is the upgraded version of the A4. Mosrt of the tanks in service are Leopard 2 A4s A5 and A6s with some A7s in service with Germany Hungray Singapore and Qatar. Denmark Sewden also have leopard 2 A7 main battle tanks and Norway is also looking at the A7 main battle tank form 2025 and also the K2No main battle tank also form 2025 to replace the A4NO main battle tanks.
The German Panther is a completely new design of tank but on the Leparod frame !
It is an automatic loading gun , with all new electronics meant to outdo all modern tanks !
Unfinished proof of concept at this point in time.
I knew that french GALIX system also can use 76 mm HE-FRAG grenades for close-in defence against waves of infantry.
Tough fighting machine, Leopard 2 is one of the very best and elite battle tank ever made. Germans are great in battle tank production. Rigid material, economic fuel, high power ammunitions, easy maintenance, fast and all weather fighting machine, great price, modern version of the Tiger tanks. Putin may not like these tanks rolling in his backyard, Ukraine, once he sees the iron cross which he hates so much. Let us see how russians will deal with these impressived and sophisticated german tanks. Play the song “Panzerlied,” from youtube, fits these german tanks.
Never mind the tanks, lets see how they are crewed. That's the difference between comparable tanks!
Nice tank but it is not the only thing: if the enemy have significantly more tanks and all else equal, they can attack on a wider front, even with rubbish tanks, and those that survive can go around you and destroy your fuel and other supplies. End of game.
thats the old quantity vs quality debate but whats new about modern war is the intelligence that can be gathered on large tank formations making it way easier to prepare for mass tank assault with all the weapons that can destroy tanks now.
That is what the war in ukraine is showing and gives quality an edge in the debate
The front turrent shows a shot trap where the M1 doesn't have such. I would think a country that made the panther and did away with a shot trap would not install it in a modern tank
Maximizing armor and minimizing firepower creates a lower center of gravity and gives more room for a bigger motor to optimize ramming speed. This creates a tank ideal for close infantry support that is resilient against artillery and can take on other tanks at close quarters-especially in tandem with anti-tank infantry.
Ramming? Close infantry support? The leopard cant work without Marder IFV support.
Ramming speed? lol
Артиллерия абсолютно любой танк ликвидирует.
Chainswords weren't mentioned in the video but I'm sure Krauss Maffei will find a way to fit them in.
Es un Excelente tanque. En Chile hay unos 280 Leopard 2A4 ECH, adaptados a la lucha en el Desierto por ingenieros de FAMAE.
Personalmente, creo que el Merkava IV es mejor para climas como el del Norte de Chile.
German engineering, what can I say... Absolutely brilliant
Why did Hitler lose?
imagine what Rommel could do with these Panzers...
Le saut de léopard en début de vidéo est impressionnant.
Ah yes the only tank ever to be more gigachad to the M1A2 and is the most giga chad
Leopard 1 and 2 tanks are as adaptable and with room to upgrade as the old Panzer IV tanks . A good design with plenty or room to make improvements or variants. Geppards/PZH2000s Bridgelayers , you name it it has a version using the same components as leopard 1 and 2 tanks.
Pretty sure the Panzer IV had reached the limit of it's upgradability, hence the move to the larger Panthers and Tigers. Panzer IV = Stugs.
Танки сделал человек и нет такого танка который был бы не уязвим
Challenger II a excellent tank to work alongside Leopards Tank for attack to punch through & create gaps in Russian frontline supporting Leopard Tanks attacks.
В каких реальных боевых действиях этот танк себя проявил? Пиар очередной коробочки,которая в реальных боевых сгорит от старого РПГ 7
One picture of a Swedish tank depicting it's composite armour shows a maple leaf painted on the tank. This suggests it was actually a Canadian tank.
@Joost Driesens That's some funny shit!!
@Joost Driesens 😆
No, it means it has one kill of a canadian tank.. 😄
What if the digital-satellite support it’s not available? Is it good only with inferior opponents with not electronic warfare means?
Hopefully to be seen around Bakhmut in a month or two.
Can the tank still roll when the tracks are blown up?
I was thinking that's the most vulnerable part of the tank.
0:05 I thought the funny tanker's helmets with padding were for when you rise your head in the tank. But probably more like for jumps like these.
The new German Panther tank is even more formidable.
Agente esquece as noticias da mídia porque a pouco tempo na Síria tanks Leopards foram destruídos como caixas de madeira , outro fato interessante foi na decada de 80 que a Arabia Saudita abril concorrencia e participaram tanks de diversos países inclusive esses Leopards e apenas oAbrans se igualou ao EE OSÓRIO alguem pode dizer mais tudo evoluiu de la pra ca isso, tudo mudou e também as armas ante tank.
Y que quieres decir con eso.....aunque las armas anti tanque han mejorado mucho,los tanques se siguen utilizando y sabes porque? pues porque ha dia de hoy lo estamos viendo en la guerra de Ucrania, son muy necesarios para apoyar a la infanteria en sus avances .....la clave esta en la modernizacion de los tanques ,en la mejora de blindaje y contramedidas ,sensores,visores etc etc es cierto que los tiempos cambian y todo debe ir actalizandose a los tiempos ,pero todo es dinero para esas actualizaciones .....rusia tambien a utilizado tanques de la epoca de los 80´ y tambien se los han destruido como si fuera de madera y si te informas bien han destruido hasta T90......el dinero manda amigo
Also the current modern tanks such as the Leopard, Abraham and the Challenger. Are no miracle weapons and are just as easily eliminated with the current anti-tank weapons / ammunition.
In Poland, the K2 Black Panther is rated higher than the Leopard 2😀
I can say this is the great battle tank until I see in real combat war because even this tank have a great armor 1 javelin will pop up this tank in the air
And the crew of 4 listens to Rammstein's "Feuer frei!" while driving!!! They are simply unstoppable
Would be interesting to watch a detailed analisis of Leopards II performance on real battles.
@Niels Kristian Brinth (Brinth) You are right, but this tank version was not designed for this kind of asymmetric war like in Syria (IEDs, light infantry, ambushes...) and without proper cover from other troups, each tank is easy to destroy (especially from top). So shame on Turkey military. This why the tanks in Afghanistan and Iraq were modified against such combat situations. And in Iraq more tanks were lost in the asymmetric battles than in common ones. If you want to have a good OOB tank for these battles watch out for Israel's Merkava.
Hahaha, 😂 tanks would be destroyed with modern AT4 's and other antitank weapons.
Throw away any illusions, it’ll burn like any other tank.
How does the Leopard match up against the Abrams?
todos los tanques vuelan por los aires, da igual lo buenos que sean
That's one bad a$$ looking tank. Love it. 👍🇩🇪
So Leos finally have a chance to prove themselves in real battlefield conditions, will see...
Watching that opening scene, my first thought was...
That Leopard looks like the Coolaid Man of the battle field.
Heading to Ukraine... OH YEAH!!!
Man, I remember when they brought out the M-1 and she does her job. But needs updating on her armor,firepower and ease of maintenance. This leopard tank is outstanding. Armor,firepower,crew size. Have been improved over and over. Now imagine this. It is the year 2160 and you need a tank to not only to protect the crew and tank divisions. But take out the enemy on an invaded planet. That was yours. This would be at home with a 160 mm laser-plasma cannon. Firing Range 25 miles. On the battlefield. Inspired by this tank. And, The Tiger Tank Mark 4. And the M1. Thanks for the video.
@beerthug Projectiles and lots of electricity
@Thomas Buhrkall A rail gun needs ammo though. js
Better yet, PEACE. No need for guns, tanks, killing. I know I'm a dreamer but I'm not the only one. Hmmmm... sounds like a song...
Deja la droga!
An Electric tank, one highly protected crew fully automatic with Not a laser Cannon, but a rail gun. Far more lethal...
1994 saß ich mal in einem Leo-2. War in einer Panzerkaserne stationiert um meinen Wehrdienst als Panzerschlosser zu leisten. Über 50ig Leo´s waren als KRK (Krisenreaktionkräfte) dort im Einsatz. Wahnsinn wieviel Upgrades es inzwischen gibt. 😏
Hâte de voir les prochaines images de ce produit brulé ou capturé 😊
Not very ominous when faced by a swarm of A10’s!
Leo2 has a very powerful turret but the hull is weak, most Soviet rounds will easily penatrate even the front of the hull. Well at least that is how it is in warthunder😄
Looks like it's got Tiger Tank vibes
The leopard 2 in his latest Version is still a Beast !
Ну это ещё посмотрим.
@Batman So which countries are the Germans not allowed to sell to??
France is mainly there because Germany is not allowed to deliver weapons to certain countries because of its past, otherwise the tank would already be in use in many other countries.
yes it is a beast but wait at the Leopard 3 with Krauss Maffai Wegman in work with france-industirie !!!
Ik diende dertig jaar geleden bij het 43e tankbat in Langemannshof. Mooie tijd, geweldige tank. Heb nog ergens het rijbewijs liggen.
Ik bij 41 TB Vlakbij.
The crew just got back damage on the jump in the first clip ,no need for that speed ,anyway the Challenger 2 Has them all covered🇬🇧♥️🇺🇦
This tank has the same exposed tracks and limited visibility as every other. Blow a track and it's immobile. Then, the enemy calls down artillery, or the crew ends up stuck in a hot or freezing steel box, running out of food and water, and surrounded by snipers they can't see or shoot at.
@Dan Segelov LOL NATO has no idea how to use tanks anymore... have you even been old enough to know?
@Dan Segelov So as long as you "know how tanks are used", then Leopard 2's and (modernized) T-72's are equally effective is what I understood. Might this be correct?
@Dan Segelov exactly you'll be hard pressed to find a lone tank to pick on.
Sure, if you have absolutely no idea how tanks are used by a modern fighting force, what you said might be correct.
Very impressive!!! It can defeat at least an old Golf!!!
Could tank turn into two pieces in case of internal air abnormal non-unpressure case pressure from exolosion? alike human cabin is lines alike basket ball lines turning side-wise to preserve humen?
From the Mk 1’s introduction, to the beast known as the Leopard.
Tanks for millions of dollars say "noooo you can't just destroy us" Modern drones say "hahaha I do BOOM"
I love the narrating, it's the hint of southern gentleman for me. Love from Sweden!
Even in a defeated country, Germans' passion for tanks is real
Как сказал один танкист: первый выстрел фугасом раздевает танк, второй выстрел кумысом добивает
How does the most modern leopard protect itself when hit by the most modern anti-tano weaponry? Can we see it hit with a properly devastating modern shell?
I was expecting more of an tactical analysis than a technical one. This is just a list of Leopard versions and upgrades. Not, why no-one wants to fight it...
@А С it's not a matter of any tank being indestructible. This is obvious. However, the Abrams is by far superior to both the Leopard and (especially) the T series tanks, for a multitude of reasons. It is not subjective, it is objective.
Bot narration too 🤥
Maybe in a couple months, we can ask the Ukrainians.
This aged well
This was an a la carte menu, not an analysis or tactical capability summary. Perhaps no nation wants to fight the Leopard 2 because in typical German fashion every one is a prototype upgrade of the previous one off the assembly line...Lol. Kidding Germans, just kidding! The only good part of this video IMO was watching the tanks actually show off their agility. Quite impressive.
this a remarkable video \content nice job!
А так ли хорош тяжёлый танк? Башня очень хорошо бронирована, но между башней и машиной достаточно большой "заман" , а при попадании туда снаряда башня скорее всего ампутируется.
Wow, surpirse. Ukraine get also round about 160 Leopard 1 A7 from Germany..just in the news. these Leos 1 are damn quick but have less armor
Very nice machine, I work on them sometimes.
But still not combat proved...
@Hugues Levistre You'll read the Turkish Leopards used against Kurdish insurgents in Syria did not perform well against Russian TOW's. Tanks only tend to do well against inferior, lightly armed forces, but if they faced a determined, well equipped and technologically equal force, they will struggle even more, you'll find.
took me a while to figure out what the "too-ret" or "duret" is. I have always heard another pronounciation, but i think you mean turret.
The issue is not the tank , the problem is the way an army uses it.
@The_Touring Jedi That comment hasn't aged well.
The Taliban use these tanks to drive their kids to the kindergarden. They have thousands, its like a normal golf in Germany 🙈
And the Russians use them in best possible way showing that their Army is way prepared than any other on the Planet. I assume that if direct clash between US and Russia comes I would bet on Russia and their tactics, cause US never fought against so powerful enemy on ground and air.
@pliedtka NOT 2A4' 0R 6'S
I would love to see your review of Tiger vs T-34 and tell us all how fantastic design of the Tiger tank lead the glorious German army to win the World War 2.
Its never gone toe to toe with another tank. Chally/Abrams and even the Le Clerc have.
Crews, crews, crews....Real tankers know what matters!
Adding AGM-114L Hellfire LongBow to the Leopard also means instant death :)
*They need to make MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!*
Well it's about to be tested in action. Has it actually been in any combat action?
Turkish Leopard 2's have been in action in the current Syrian war
A maldade nao ta no tanque, ta em quem usa o tanque para fazer a maldade
Impressive indeed , but one important thing is missing, they forgot to include a built in coffee machine.
I'm not sure that faced with the Leclerc, the Leopard would have the upper hand.
Love that he can't pronounce the word 'turret'. Kind of important in a tank review video!
Yep... it took me a while to understand that he was trying to say turret... I was hearing tourette and dourette. Along with tech-know-ledgy in place of technology.
@John Parnell He also said "kay" for the abbreviation KE, and 2-A-6-Ess for the plural 2A6's. Script reading is hard.
This is why I'm reading all the comments. Tourette? Don't think so! Holy mackerel dude.
Magnifique formidable 👍💪💪
If I was given an option to be in a tank or walk I’d walk! Sitting ducks!
he remembered the WW2 tiger tanks that scared the allies
We will See how Strong this Tank are 🇹🇷🤘🐺
El problema de todos los tanques es siempre el mismo, terminan con las tripas al aire.
nie przesadzajmy każdy czołg można znioszczyć
На каждого есть своё применение.
Резаком можно разрезать? А то в металлоприёмке целым танком не возьмут да весы у них сломаются
Pois é....como qq veículo, na realidade a maior parte dos MBT's são máquinas fantásticas, o problema está na equipe: comandante, artilheiro, navegador, etc. Sem disciplina, treinamento, experiência de combate e sem saber aproveitar ao máximo o que ele oferece, já era.....
@Francisco мало людей сдесь под своим именем и фото. Но дай Бог чтобы и Вы увидели свою не правоту. Мы верим в Бога. В отличии от Вас
@Hudson B se Deus quiser......
@Francisco sim, mais esses equipamentos enviados da otan não vão conseguir parar a Rússia mais Rússia vai sair feia dessa guerra
@Hudson B grande Verdade, Hudson. Jovens morrem pra salvaguardar os interesses dos velhos (mesmo eu sendo velho, reconheço....kkkkkk) Meu, com relação aos Leopards, eu percebo que as pessoas estão preocupadas com a eficiência dessas máquinas, como já comentamos antes, as táticas, o comando, a logística e o fator humano superam de longe a tecnologia "anunciada". E a Ucrânia tá mostrando isso....
