The new German Leopard 2A7V - The World's Best Main Battle Tank
On 05 May 2017, the Bundeswehr and Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) signed a contract for the combat capability upgrade of 20 in-service Leopard 2A7s to the 2A7V design standard, as well as the production and delivery of 84 additional Leopard 2A7V tanks between 2020 and 2023. As was the case with the 2A7, the comprehensive modifications to the 2A7V - which primarily affect the areas of protection, mobility, controllability, endurance and firepower - consist of both performance-enhancing measures and complementary ones.
This publication shows the Leopard main battle tank in its most modern combat upgrade configuration 2A7V for the very first time in service and in great technical detail.
