The latest upgrade to the Leopard 2 is a newly designed 55 caliber 120mm smoothbore main gun. The 2 A6 retains improvements made to previous Leopard 2 tanks including wedge shaped spaced armor effective against chemical weapons and improved electric gun control and stabilization system. The use of the 2 A6 continues to spread throughout Europe with the Netherlands, Spain and Greece adopting the 2 A6 as their main battle tank.
Measuring 1.3m longer than the 44 caliber main gun of its predecessor, the Leopard 2 A5, the new gun of the 2 A6 provides higher projectile velocity for increased range and penetration.
In order to obtain an even more realistic appearance, goggles for figures, headlights and taillights are all reproduced using transparent parts.
The Leopard 2 A6 kit includes decals to reproduce up to 4 different types of markings, including NATO versions used in Kosovo. This kit also features extra road signs for reproduction of realistic diorama.
Overall length: 314mm
