    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

    Leopard 1 MBT, for its remarkable combat effectiveness and excellent mobility, has created its legend for nearly fifty years.
    In 1980s, in order to rival the latest Soviet T-72 and T-80 MBTs, West Germany began to further upgrade Leopard 1MBT. The upgrade was based on Leopard 1 A1A1 MBT instead of Leopard 1 A3/A4 MBT. The result is the Leopard 1 A5 MBT. The combat weight of Leopard 1 A5 is 42.4 tons. It can carry 4 crews. Its main armament is an L7A3 105mm L/52 rifled gun. The add-on armour on the turret improves the Leopard 1 A5's protection; a modern fire-control system is installed; the upgrade also includes the introduction of APFSDS rounds and modification of the hydraulic system of running gear and NBC protection system. In 1987, Leopard 1A5 entered service in German Army. With a large number of Leopard 2 MBTs entering service, Leopard 1 A5 MBTs have gradually left the front line troops, but it's still considered the most outstanding Leopard 1 MBT.
