The Bundeswehr has successfully tested a new version of the Leopard tank

106

The German army has tested the new Leopard 2A7V main battle tank. Testing took place at the Bundeswehr Technical Center in Meppen and was filmed.


As you know, Leopard 2A7V is an upgraded version tank Leopard 2A6, recently considered one of the best main battle tanks in the world and competing with the American M1A2 Abrams, British Challenger 2 and French Leclerc. The previous version of the "Leopard" is in service not only with the Bundeswehr, but also with the ground forces of Finland, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Canada.

Three years ago, Rheinmetall announced the start of a main battle tank modernization program, the implementation of which would bring the tank closer to the most modern standards and provide it with one of the most worthy places in the world tank market. The program to improve the tank included installing the latest software, improving the quality of armor protection, increasing armor-piercing capabilities and firepower of the vehicle.

What is the latest modification of a German armored vehicle? First of all, it takes into account all the features of modern tank warfare, including the use of tanks in local conflicts and urban battles. The design of the Leopard 2A7V is similar to the 2A6 tank. The tank's crew consists of four people - commander, driver, gunner and loader. The engine compartment of the tank is fenced off from the crew compartment by a fireproof partition.

The tank is powered by an MTU Mb 873 ka 501 diesel power plant capable of producing over 1,5 thousand horsepower. On the road, the new version of the "Leopard" is capable of accelerating to 68 km / h. The mileage of the tank before overhaul is more than 10 thousand kilometers.

The tank is armed with a 120mm Rheinmetall L / 5 cannon, capable of firing the latest DM53 Rheinmetall DM53 - Tracer (APFSDS-T) armor-piercing projectile. The firing range is 1600 meters, while the tank has the best characteristics in terms of penetration of enemy armor when compared to most other modern main battle tanks.

Additional armament for the Leopard 2A7V includes a 3 mm Rheinmetall MG7,62 machine gun mounted to the left of the main gun. You can install another additional 7,62mm machine gun on the turret near the loader's hatch. The undoubted advantage of the tank is the mine protection of the hull, significantly strengthened compared to previous versions. Added third generation Attica thermal imaging units.

And here is the official video of the latest tests of the new version of the main battle tank:



According to the plans of the German military department, by 2023, the Bundeswehr should receive 104 such tanks. The first serial modernized "Leopards" will go into service next year. In addition to the Bundeswehr, by 2022, 44 modernized tanks should receive the Danish ground forces. It is possible that in the foreseeable future there will be new buyers of the main battle tank, primarily from among the FRG's allies in the North Atlantic Alliance.

      In the realities of modern combat, you will not even see it, as the artillerymen say: first you will see a flash, then it will tear your head off, and only then you will hear a shot. These tanks do not crush with caterpillars like in films about the Second World War.

      the leclerk has a machine gun.
      just when building a heavy tank, it is usually easier to find a place for the loader
      and therefore you don't have to worry about upgrading the automatic loader for lengthening sub-calibers.

          the first 3-4 shots, the loader does not lag behind and may even be faster
          but with the growth of calibers, the loader can be removed - now the mass of the projectile is at the limit

              Well, yes, and also ours is not the last century, when the population was large. The indigenous population is dying out, is there any point in making more crews? A pair of extra hands is certainly good, but only this pair of extra hands could be trained for a more valuable role in the crew for another tank. And 3-4 shots with a high rate of fire there is generally laughter, are they there on the Kursk Bulge, or what, tanks live for 10 minutes? But this is already a rhetorical question.

        What is it like? In different tanks or what? Propelling charges in one, and shells in the other? laughing What nafig separate storage, if it's all the same, all the ammunition in one tank, if it breaks out, then all at once. In addition, there are many videos (the same Turkish "Leopards" in Syria), where you can clearly see how they, with their "separate storage", perfectly burn out and detonate.

              Oh, don't talk about this German "pedantry", a stereotype from the category of drunken Russians with a balalaika. During the Second World War, these "pedantic" even elementary documents were not filled out or sent, and sometimes even lost. They especially liked to fill out documents about losses poorly. But ours, on the contrary, recorded who even suffered from combat diarrhea. Once upon a time it is not necessary. And looking at the Bundeswehr you cannot say that they are pedantic.

    Interestingly, the Germans consulted with the Turks? Does not look like...
    The Turks, following the battles with the Kurds and ISIS, increased the booking of their Leopards.
    After analyzing the places of penetration by ATGMs, added armor, changed the packing of shells
    in the front.

      how can you increase the armor of the side and stern so that the hits of ATGMs can be leveled?) it looks more like they are in the army in this way the crews are trying to calm down. there, everyone constantly makes the same mistake - crazy use. if my memory serves me, then at least 5 leo and 4 were struck extremely competently by anti-tank systems in the lateral projection. the attacks were organized with knowledge of the matter without a chance for the Turks. Judging by the place where they were knocked out, it was also the city buildings that were apparently not cleaned out.

        There was a detailed article on VO about this. The sides of the tower and hulls have been reinforced
        adding about 5 more tons of armor. With tests. Shelling from ATGM
        to these places.
        The Turks have recently been working on mistakes quickly and to the point.
        And not for show.
        As much as I do not like Erdogan, I like R&D among the Turks.

              somehow too often their pleasure flashes among the neighbors-aggressors
              Georgian armored cars, Azerbaijan, anarchists in Syria - all with Turkish weapons, and heavy ones.
              In Libya, the Turks also managed to check in. Somehow a bit too much dirt on what is so joyfully created.
              Hopefully the Turks will not get some effective short- to medium-range missile. Then hell will begin.

          The tank challenge is performed by elements, and in the tank biathlon the express complex is also performed at speed. The Germans like: driving - separately, shooting - separately, lunch break, overcoming obstacles, afternoon tea, platoon action, retreat. All on the shelves, all one after the other, gently breathing into the engine compartment of the command tank in front.
          Now, if the American fleets all at once arranged a racing round the world without entering the ports, it would be possible to see how their admirals at the finish line distribute victorious clicks to each other. smile

    Yes, this shed still has to manage to miss. Ours are following the path of reducing the dimensions of the tower in particular, making it completely uninhabited, and the tank as a whole, and the west - on the contrary ... further - more.

    Can you please tell the tankers and in the West and in the United States, on principle, do not use an automatic loader?

    This is so that the enemy could not use the equipment abandoned in a hurry - the Teutons and Naglo-Saxons are plump people, pumped up by steroids and small Chinese, for example, they cannot master such a "machine".

            Do you know what kind of tank it is? This is not a T-90 and certainly not a T-80, this is a Polish "Tvyardy" with an 840 hp engine and a track with sequential engagement

            Every tank can get stuck, including the Leopard, admire ...


            But all this does not negate the fact that our tanks have lower ground pressure and weight than the German

        You have obvious problems with physics. A tank weighing under 70 tons, without some super-duper wide tracks (they are the most common ones) and has a decent cross-country ability? Specific ground pressure, comrade. And the Germans have not yet invented anti-gravity.

    This is just the first rollout. Therefore, only asphalt and only in a circle. In short, it is still not clear whether it is successful or not. Surely there will be some problems, but only the developers will know about them.
