In the Spotlight

Leopard 1A3/1A4

Photos provided by Bob Grimster

Leopard 1A4 on display at CFB Borden, Canada. Please note it is not a C1, despite its location. This tank was a donation from KMW, turret and hull are mixed serial numbers, and was used as a trial tank for modifications.

However, it does provide excellent reference for any welded-turret Leopard 1. Of course, the hull fittings are common on many cast-turreted Leos as well.

The photos were taken two years apart, before and after restoration. Note that the EMES 12 commander's sight is missing from the roof.
