Leopard 1 A5 MBT is installed with a modern fire-control system, so it can use seven kinds of rounds, and its maximum firing range is up to 4000 meters. The upgrade also includes the addition of turret add-on armor, introduction of APFSDS rounds and modification of the hydraulic system of running gear and NBC protection system. In 1987, Leopard 1 A5 entered service in German Army. It’s exported to Canada, Greece and Italy.
