In the Spotlight

Leopard 1 Prototype

This Leopard 1 prototype has been on display at CFB Shiloh (Manitoba, Canada) for many, many years.

Identifying prototypes can be a little confusing! Before passing redundant machines onto museums, the manufacturer had a bad habit of mixing different prototype turrets on different prototype hulls. In this case, a pre-production Series-0 turret has been mounted on a prototype Series II hull.
