The Leopard 2A6M is an advanced main battle tank (MBT) based on the Leopard 2 series of tanks, which was developed by the German company Krauss-Maffei Wegmann. While the Leopard 2A6 is the base variant, the “M” in Leopard 2A6M stands for “Modular” and signifies that it is a modernized version with additional features and upgrades.
The tank is equipped with a 120mm smoothbore gun, which is highly accurate and capable of firing a variety of ammunition types, including APFSDS (Armor-Piercing Fin-Stabilized Discarding Sabot) rounds and HEAT (High-Explosive Anti-Tank) rounds. It also features advanced fire control systems, including a laser rangefinder and ballistic computer, which enhance accuracy and target acquisition capabilities.
The Leopard 2A6M incorporates advanced composite and modular armour, which provides increased protection against a wide range of threats, including kinetic energy penetrators, shaped charges, and explosive fragments. It also has additional layers of armour and modular add-on armour kits that can be customized to the operational requirements.
The tank has a crew of four, including a driver, a commander, a gunner, and a loader. The crew is provided with advanced ergonomics, improved situational awareness through enhanced vision devices, and increased survivability features like NBC (Nuclear, Biological, Chemical) protection systems.
