Meng Model 1:35 - German MBT Leopard 2A7 - Plastic model kit #TS-027

The Leopard 2 was developed in the 1970's for the West German Army and entered service in 1979 replacing the Leopard 1 as the main battle tank of the German Army.

The Leopard 2A7 is one of the latest versions of the series issued in 2014. A total of 14 vehicles were produced for Tank Battalion 203 and a few more were sent to military training centres and schools.

Based on its predecessor, the 2A6M, the 2A7 retains the armament of the earlier models - a 120mm smooth bore gun. The tank was upgraded with a new air conditioning system, power system and tactical systems (including the Saab Barracuda Mobile Camouflage System (MCS) and a SOTAS digital intercom system). Also, the vehicle was improved with additional armour which protects it against chemical anti-tank weapons and improvised explosive devices. Due to all the enhancements, the Leopard 2A7 is considered the most advanced German main battle tank suitable for low-intensity conflicts.
