1A5 – The Ultimate Leopard 1
Leopard 1 was originally conceived in the 1960s to face the threat of the Soviet T-54, T-55 and T-62. By 1980, it had to face the more formidable T-64 and T-72. Fitted with a revolutionary fire-control system, it was the first to use a laser rangefinder allowing all-weather, day or night, vision. Together with an upgrade in ammunition and many other modifications, it became the Ultimate Leopard 1.
