Accurately reproduced long 55 caliber 120mm smoothbore main gun adds to sense of power.
Kit features extra road signs for reproduction of realistic diorama.
The latest upgrade to the Leopard 2 is a newly designed 55 caliber 120mm smooth bore main gun. Measuring 1.3m longer than the 44 caliber main gun of its predecessor, the Leopard 2 A5, the new gun of the 2 A6 provides higher projectile velocity for increased range and penetration. The 2 A6 retains improvements made to previous Leopard 2 tanks including wedge shaped spaced armor effective against chemical weapons and improved electric gun control and stabilization system. The use of the 2 A6 continues to spread throughout Europe with the Netherlands, Spain and Greece adopting the 2 A6 as their main battle tank.

Ok, not great kit. Strengths: Details fine, build itself smooth and without problems. Instructions typically Tamiya-like, clear, straightforward, superbly laid out, decals accurate, including ones for a diorama (the road sign decals a particularly nice touch). Negatives: turret/hull connection rough, turret too large for fittings, requiring much swearing and sanding before I got it to rotate properly. Interesting (and unusual) for a Tamiya kit, flash on several (minor) parts. All in all an OK, somewhat disappointing kit.
