In NEWS by RalphZwilling / Oktober 30, 2019 / 0 Comments

On 29 October 2019, Tank-Masters.de had the very unique opportunity to join the roll out ceremony of the new German Leopard 2A7V MBT and the Danish Leopard 2A7DK at the Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) facilities in Munich.

Frank Haun, Chairman of the Board of KMW, presented the symbolic keys of the first two vehicle systems to the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Denmark, Friis Arne Petersen, and the Parliamentary State Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Defence, Dr. Peter Tauber. Both nations are receiving comparable variants of the Leopard 2 A7 main battle tank.

Protection, mobility, firepower and commandability were significantly increased. The main features include an even higher protection level, high-performance power supply, new NBC and air conditioning systems as well as the integration of C4 I systems in order to meet the requirements of modern, networked operation. The modernisation of the driveline and a further optimisation of the weapon stabilisation during travel bolster the vehicles’ agility and combat performance. The Danish army will receive a total of 44 Leopard 2 A7 vehicles by 2022. The German Federal Armed Forces will gain 104 Leopard 2 A7V vehicles by 2023.
