    The Leopard 2 Thread

    INTOPS stands for International Operations (as far as I know) and is a name given to the Danish Leopard 2A5 upgrade for use in Afghanistan (mine protection kit, Barracuda camouflage, air conditioning unit, slat armor, etc.). SPECTUS is a night vision system for the driver using thermal cameras and image intensifiers (and if required fuzing both images together) made by Hensoldt. It has been adopted on the Leopard 2A6MA2 and is part of the Leopard 2A7V upgrade. As one can see in the photographs, the Danish Leopard 2A7 tanks do not feature the SPECTUS system. https://www.

    Syrian conflict.

    New Anna video with a lot of destroyed Turkish-supplied armor. Totally worth the time to watch. Meanwhile there was no advance by SAA today but airstrikes didn't stop. Russian-Turkish talks in Moscow allegedly failed.

    The Leopard 2 Thread

    I don't think there is any additional armor on the Leopard 2A7DK except the stronger mine protection kit of the Leopard 2A7. The Danish Leopard 2A5DK INTOPS variant already added the lower hull applique armor (aswell as the side armor), while the upper hull armor was fielded as part of the initial Leopard 2A5 (DK) upgrade. Only a small number of INTOPS were made, IIRC they utilize AMAP of the former IBD Deisenroth rather than the MinePRO system developed by RUAG on behalf of the LEOBEN community (and used by Canada, Germany, Qatar and Sweden). No idea if this was related to costs,

    The Leopard 2 Thread

    Interesting, from when is this document? Seems to be a very early array. It doesn't matter how a layman, an enthusiasts or even a member of a tank crew rates the survivability of tanks on purely subjective impressions. We know that a part of designing a modern MBT is a survivability analysis, both in terms of simulation and real life-firing tests and we know that every tank aside of the Abrams and Armata has opted for a "wine-rack stowage". This is not an inexcusable flaw, but a intentional design decision, as every tank design is a trade-off between negatives and posivit
