Brazil plans to acquire an additional batch of MBT "Leopard-1A5"

33
The Brazilian Ground Forces is considering the purchase of an additional batch of main combat tanks "Leopard-1A5" and special vehicles from the Armed Forces of one of the countries that are armed with this equipment.


As reported by Jane's Defense Weekly, citing its sources, a formal purchase decision has not yet been made and no funds have been allocated for the purchase.

Brazil plans to acquire an additional batch of MBT "Leopard-1A5"


However, in the framework of a preliminary study of the market in early September, the Brazilian delegation visited Switzerland and Italy to evaluate the Leopard 1A5 available in the armed forces of these countries.

At present, the armed forces of Brazil include 220 tanks "Leopard-1A5BR", 41 "Leopard-1A1" and 36 M-60A3 TTS. In addition, 20 special machines "Leopard-1BR" are in service (8 BREM, 4 armored roadblock, four engineering vehicles and four driver training vehicles). Four armored recovery vehicles M-88A1 were provided by the United States.

In total, the 128 MBT Leopard-1A1 and 91 M-60A3 TTS were previously delivered to the SV of Brazil from the Armed Forces of Belgium and the United States, respectively. More than half of this technology is currently written off.

Planned for the purchase of MBT "Leopard-1A5" is likely to replace the remaining in service with "Leopard-1A1" and M-60A3 TTS, which will unify the Brazilian MBT fleet of Brazil, reports TSAMTO

        Well, yes, the stump is clear that the traveled, and then where to get the new Leo1 now?
        but the Brazilians would be better not to take anything at all than to take the junk which is probably half a century old.
        they don’t buy them for a week, and these tanks are now ancient, but what will happen in 10-20 years?
        only in museums this is seen, well, in the Brazilian army.

        From a run in Russia, you can only buy charred scrap metal. To Russia in tanks, this is one way. lol

        What is your sarcasm? I wrote somewhere that the Leo A5 is bad or worse than the T-90? I wrote that the European armies over the past 10 years have been greatly reduced in size in terms of personnel and equipment, that's all.

          This is certainly true, but still, some burn better and faster than others.

          There is no formula for the tank’s coolness coefficient. They are looking for him all the time. Klim Voroshilov is a miracle tank. But how a bunker is quite suitable. What about a tank? The Nazis and others went the same way. We-chose a different path. The tank should be absolutely universal. Therefore, our tanks can be inferior to someone in something. Local fights? Everyone will burn. Our tanks for global war. Quickly make, quickly repair and use it as efficiently as possible in any environment, climate zone, and with a minimally trained crew.

    I think it is a matter of price, it is unlikely that someone needs such junk and, with this in mind, they want to take it for nothing, well, and as the article says:
    will allow to unify the Brazilian MBT fleet
    with existing tanks
    220 tanks "Leopard-1A5BR", 41 "Leopard-1A1"
    .
    We must also throw our 62ki anywhere, we also have nowhere to put these 2.5 thousand tanks.

        I thought the Syrian 62 work there and from us 70s and 90s, otherwise delivery will probably cost more than the cost of the tank. laughing

          Yes, there is an old conflict over resource-rich, inaccessible territories. The last time the "thread" of the war were in the 90s of the last century. Now the passions have subsided, but it’s not a fact that one doesn’t heat up again.

    Due to the high cost of modern MBTs, many countries are looking for a more “budget” replacement for them. In this regard, it would be nice to start promoting our Octopus into this market and especially hurry up with the creation of Octopus on the basis of Dragoon ...

      The Octopus is unlikely to be cheap due to the specifics of the undercarriage, and has zero resistance to damage. Therefore, apparently, it is not built especially. The tank does not go much more expensive and the IL-76 tank can be delivered.

    Leo-1 is good for everyone, but just like a machine, with a bend it somehow is not very good. Although Canadians in Afghanistan, and so were pleased. DZ over throw and you can all sorts of RPG-7 tank.
