Therefore, the 120-mm L55 smoothbore gun installed on it is currently considered the most advanced of those mass-produced in the West. In addition to the Leopard 2 family of vehicles, its version is planned to be used in the new British Challenger 3. The possibility of installation on other NATO tanks has been studied.

It would also be interesting to know the ammunition used: it was reported that the Armed Forces of Ukraine received new sub-caliber armor-piercing projectiles.

This modification differs from previous versions of Leopard 2 with improved armor and an improved fire control system, the secrets of which will also not be superfluous.

It is known that the Leopard 2A6 was in the tank battalion assigned to the elite 47th separate mechanized brigade “Magura”. However, after the failure of the Ukrainian counteroffensive, this unit suffered significant losses and was withdrawn from the combat contact line.

Instead, Abrams M1A1 SA appeared in ’47, but our soldiers also methodically destroy vehicles abroad. We now know of five destroyed and three more seriously damaged. Additionally, two M1150 Assault Breacher assault clearing vehicles built on the Abrams chassis were disabled.
