Up Close And Personal Look At Western Europe’s Greatest Main Battle Tank And Rival Of The M1 Abrams During Live Fire Drills

Main battle tanks are moving fortresses that can take over any battle and inflict serious damage on their targets. Since their creation, battle tanks have imposed their presence wherever they have been deployed. Symbols of dominance, battle tanks were used extensively during World War 2 by Germany to run over any and all opposition or resistance encountered on their way. It could be said that main battle tanks and their importance were firmly established by German forces during the mid-century world war.

More than anything, it established German prowess and ingenuity. As a legacy of that ingenuity, albeit not in its evil form, the Leopard 2 main battle tank stands as the greatest battle tank in all Western Europe. Having entered service in 1979, it dethroned the earlier Leopard 1 as the main battle tank of the then Western German Army. Since then, various versions have served in the armed forces of Germany and many European countries, as well as several non-European nations. The German engineered Leopard 2 is undoubtedly one of the finest tanks ever built. We bring you a glimpse of it greatness in this live fire video. See by yourself what all the hype is about.
