History[ | ]

Class: Main Battle Tank
Developed: 1958-1963
Service: 1963-1970
Vehicles Built: 1845
Operators: West Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Norway, Italy

The Leopard 1 Main Battle Tank was the first German tank to be developed and fielded after the end of the Second World War and one of the most iconic NATO vehicles of the Cold War. Designed to replace the aging American M47 in German service, it traded armor for mobility and firepower since it was based on the idea that no amount of armor was sufficient to protect an MBT against modern tank ammunition. That was why the Germans opted to go with a light, but also mobile machine. The same thought process was used in construction of the French AMX-30 tank series. This vehicle represents the initial four production batches, built between September 1965 and February 1970 with 1845 of these initial versions built. Starting from 1970, these older Leopard 1 series tanks were upgraded to later variants.

Vehicle Traits[ | ]

  • Armored: This vehicle's armor can withstand a lot of punishment, allowing it to survive even serious firefights.
  • HESH Rounds: This vehicle can fire special Squash Head rounds. These are extremely effective against angled armor that is typical for Soviet tanks.
