  1. Good statements! One question? Does anybody know whether Poland has a ban on use of Uranium? The latest protection versions of Abrams come with depleted uranium armour. For the delivery to Australia that had to be replaced by tungsten sheets!

    Agreed. Don't involve Poland in MGCS, don't take the hint when they look to the K2PL... Okay, you get nothing.

    Poland cannot wait for MGCS. If it comes in 2035 it comes so late that the Polish MBT fleet is pretty outdated. BTW German MBT fleet, too, if they do not an upgrade to a Leo Ax version.

  3. The Netherlands Army decided just these days to perform a CV9035NL upgrade including IRON FIST APS from Elbit and Rafael SPIKE-LR ATGM. The number of vehicles is much higher with 122 each, so it seem that this is a more mature decision instead of 17 Leopards!

    Does anyone know when the "E-technology" armor packages were introduced to the Leopard 2 line ? I heard that that happened over 10 years ago.

    The development of the E -technology started 2002 as a private initiative of KMW to cover the expected threat of PG's fired from RPG-7. The design covered turret and chassis with add-on armour modules adapted to Leopard 2.

    This technology was proved by German Army and sold by KMW to the Canadian Army for their Leopard 2 A4M CAN. A few vehicles were sent in 2010 to Afghanistan and performed pretty well. This technology can also be attached to Leopard 2 A7V as the attachment points have been foreseen at this MBT.
