The Leopard (or Leopard 1) is a German designed and produced main battle tank that first entered service in 1965 and was used as the main MBT for Germany, other European countries, Australia and Canada.
It is a fairly conventional design armed with a German-built version of the British L7 105-mm gun and known for its good cross-country speed.
The design started as a collaborative project between Germany and France in the 1950s, but they split and the design was ordered by the Bundeswehr, production starting in 1963. It has gradually been relegated to secondary roles in the 21st century. In the Bundeswehr it has been replaced by the Leopard 2.
This particular 1:40 scale Leopard I main battle tank is painted in a tri-color camouflage pattern. Sold Out!
